The ease of use, robustness, speed, and costs make this an exemplary instrument.
Application Area:HTS drug development screening tool
"The Octet HTX allows quantitation with high resolution comparable to an HPLC and rapid throughput. The platform allows shortening of our timelines and less cost for cell line development. The instrument is very robust, easy to use and is well supported by an experienced support staff of application scientists, software engineers, service engineers and sales. Integration of the instrument into an automation system was completely supported by ForteBio."

Easy to use, fast results!
Application Area:Mapping of Bindingsites
"Easy to use, fast results! You have to take a closer look on what tips you order, and they are not that cheap. But they can be regenerated."
The flagship of the instrument range monitors up to 96 biosensors simultaneously, enabling label-free detection for protein quantitation and kinetic characterization at unmatched speed and throughput. The system's ability to read 8, 16, 32, 48 or 96 wells in parallel allows for tailoring the assay design to maximize analytical throughput or sensitivity. Rapid whole-plate detection is accomplished using the 96 biosensor mode, providing either quantitation data for 96 samples in as little as 2 minutes or full plate kinetic screening in minutes instead of hours.
Key applications that leverage the unique strengths of the Octet HTX system include epitope binning experiments, off-rate ranking, and titer concentration.
- Unmatched throughput – Up to 96-well simultaneous sampling in 384-well and 96-well formats
- Sensitivity – Detection of low molecular weight molecules (≥ 150 Da)
- Flexibility – Two plate locations maximize throughput and improve workflow
- Unattended operation – Automation friendliness allows multiple-plate assays in one run
- User friendliness – Advanced software tools for epitope binning analysis
