Genalyte custom spotting service will enable Maverick customers to obtain ready-to-use arrays.
Genalyte, a life sciences company developing and commercialising next generation multiplexing technology, has teamed up with Scienion to market thesciFLEXARRAYER automated liquid dispensers along with Genalyte’s multiplexed Maverick detection system.
The Maverick platform uses a proprietary silicon chip containing arrays of photonic microring sensors to simultaneously analyse multiple proteins, DNA or biomarkers from a single small sample, using a one-step process that automates the washes, incubations, reagents and processing steps associated with other technologies.
Scienion’s sciFLEXARRAYERs are automated, non-contact dispensing systems for ultra-low volume liquid handling of biological samples.
Genalyte is offering customers the sciFLEXARRAYER S5, a production unit designed for low maintenance, long term use as a flexible and dependable tool for manufacturing high quality arrays.
Under the terms of the agreement, Genalyte will market the sciFLEXARRAYER S5 dispenser to its customers and Scienion will retain responsibility for installing and servicing the sciFLEXARRAYER.
Separately, Genalyte has announced the launch of its Custom Spotting Service.
They claim this will offer a cost effective custom spotting service that will load proteins such as antibodies, peptides, biomarkers, cytokines and antigens supplied by customers onto Genalyte chips.
The chips are then returned to the customer in the same ready-to-use chip array format used in Genalyte’s off-the shelf multiplex assay kits, ready to be run on the Maverick Detection System.
The Maverick multiplex system can deliver results from small samples of many types, including serum, plasma, culture media and whole blood.
