b-screen® provides a label-free read-out of up to 10,000 spots per square centimeter. It utilizes a precise and automated microfluidics system for incubation of the microarray with the sample of interest. The device can be used with multiple array layouts (highly scalable), uses glass or plastic type substrates and is compatible with almost any common microarray printer. The high-throughput analysis is characterized by a high time resolution (no scanning) at low noise of the optical readout. No fluorescence labels are needed, which leads to assay conditions as close as possible to the in-vivo situation combined with minimal sample pre-treatment and minimized reagent consumption.
Gain additional information on kinetics and thermodynamics
“With b-screen® users are able to easily transfer existing microarrays directly into a label-free assay format thus gaining additional information on kinetics and thermodynamics at high precision and reliability,” says Günther Proll, Managing Director of Biametrics. “The device allows very low cost high-throughput screening and the applications we have established demonstrate excellent performance and outcome characteristics. We believe b-screen® provides key advantages over current options like surface plasmon resonance (SPR)”.
Biametrics will present its b-screen® system at Analytica 2014 in Munich, Germany.
