The Epic® System consists of an SBS-standard 384-well microplate with optical sensors and HTS-compatible microplate reader capable of reading up to 40,000 wells per 8 hours and a set of label-free, direct-bind and functional assay protocols. Its sensitivity of 5pg/mm2 enables the detection of the binding of a 300Da compound to a 70kDa immobilized target with CVs of 10% or less. This powerful combination of features and performance capabilities not only enables researchers to evaluate many of the biomolecular interactions in molecular and cellular biology, but also provides the added benefit of integration with an already installed HTS capital base. In addition, the Epic® System makes the screening of "intractable" targets and pathway interactions that cannot be screened today possible.
The universal applicability of the Epic® System across biochemical assay types also enables the discovery of new chemical entities (small molecule) as well as new biological entities (large molecule).

"Assay: time from equilibration to external fluid addition results in loss of initial collection point. The ensuing response time could be tens of minutes, Data analysis is pedestrian- data is exported, run through a macro, then analyzed. Cost per plate is extreme."
