immuSpeed™: Automated station
immuSpeed™ is an automated microfluidics-based platform, designed for running bead-based ELISA tests with standard immunology reagents. The instrument works with a microfluidics chip, harboring biosensors, in which all assay steps, from sample preparation through signal detection in 8 parallel channels, are performed automatically. Programming of sequential assay and regeneration loops allows running 96 tests, fully unattended. Various assays can be embarked and run in minutes depending on biology, i.e. at speeds offering a quasi real-time monitoring solution in serial testing, and with the flexibility for performing most of available ELISA or affinity assays.
Fast: Total quantitative assay duration is 1 hour, including incubation
Efficient: Reagent and bead consumption is reduced to a minimum, and sample requirement is a mere 10 µl
Open: The system runs with conventional reagents, as provided in commercially available kits
Flexible: Various assays can be run simultaneously and in different (e.g. urine, plasma, CSF) matrixes
