sciFLEXARRAYER S11 to be used for the production of biochips
Scienion’s sciFLEXARRAYER S11 is to be used by Courtagen for the production of QPDx® Biochips
Courtagen Life Sciences has developed an automated immunoassay system that consists of a self-contained array-based QPDx® BioChip and the Avantra® Q400 Biomarker Workstation.
The system provides a simple and robust solution to the need to translate proteomics discoveries into a clinical setting.
The self-contained BioChip, one step operation, and short time to results make this technology ideally suited for testing at the point of sample collection, enabling real-time application of biomarker results.
The Avantra Q400 is a compact bench top instrument suitable for space limited areas enabling multiplex biomarker analysis for research use only (RUO) at the lab bench or clinical trial site.
“We have been looking for a reliable solution for the reproducible high throughput production of spotted arrays for our QPDx® BioChips,” said Dr. Kate Sheldon, Ph.D., Director of Product Development at Courtagen.
“The SCIENION sciFLEXARRAYER S11 is able to consistently produce high quality arrays that meet our needs, and has the capacity to meet demand as our business grows.”
Genalyte custom spotting service will enable Maverick customers to obtain ready-to-use arrays.
