"The LabChip 3000 can, initially, be a bit difficult to figure out, but once you become familiar with the quirks and learn the shortcuts, it's relatively easy. It has clear read-out and analysis, although the software doesn't always work 100% for analyzing every single assay. Overall, a good machine with good customer service."
The LabChip 3000 drug discovery system miniaturizes, integrates and automates enzymatic and cell-based assays.
Using LabChip technology, the LabChip 3000 performs screening experiments in a serial, continuous flow fashion. LabChip assays are separations-based, so the quality of results exceeds what is achievable in homogenous, well-based assays. No other screening system identifies weak enzyme inhibitors as reproducibly as the LabChip 3000.
Diverse Assay Menu
A variety of enzymatic and cell-based assays can be performed on a single LabChip 3000 instrument. The assay menu for the LabChip 3000 includes:
- Serine/Threonine Kinases;
- Tyrosine Kinases;
- Lipid-modifying Enzymes; and
- G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs).
PerkinElmer's most recent introduction, KiSS (Kinase Selectivity Screening) offers lead optimization and secondary screening laboratories a simple, affordable approach to kinase profiling.
Two Configurations to Meet your Laboratory's Needs
Depending on the system configuration you select, the LabChip 3000 is well suited to all areas of drug discovery:
- Assay Development
- Primary Screening
- Secondary/Selectivity Screening
- Lead Optimization
Simple, low-cost Assay Development Stations allow for method development and low-throughput screening requirements. Screening systems meet the needs of medium- and high-throughput screening laboratories, and come equipped with an on-board Twister™ plate handler. An environmental control chamber is also included with the screening system so that 96- and 384-well plates can be automatically processed without risking sample evaporation.
