The design of the Xpose and its microfluidic slides, redefines manual UV/VIS quantification into a convenient, high speed solution. The Xpose drop and read approach avoids time-consuming sample loading and cleaning steps thereby minimizing the hands-on time on the reader. The full-color touch screen gives single touch access to advanced analytical software, including dye-free specific quantification of DNA, RNA or protein in samples containing interfering components, using Trinean’s proprietary algorithms for UV/VIS spectral deconvolution.
Trinean’s proven best-in-class full UV/VIS spectral optics is combined with unique microfuidic properties of the Xpose slides, to guarantee high accuracy and sensitivity for bio-molecule quantification in volumes as low as 2 μL. The microfluidic slides assure highly reproducible and standardized quantification of samples from very low to very high biomolecule concentrations with a linear dynamic range of almost 10000 fold. Moreover, the Xpose slides protect samples from evaporation, thereby allowing preparation and storage of samples for up to 2 hours prior to read-out.
The instrument will be showcased at SLAS 2013 (Orlando, Jan 12-16) and Peptalk 2013 (Palm Springs, Jan 21-25). On-site demonstrations are available through Trinean’s global network of distributors.
