Product News Apr 07, 2008
SRU Biosystems has announced the extension of its product line of label-free instrumentation and biosensors with the introduction of its Cartridge Reader based on 8- and 16-well biosensors.
The Cartridge Reader is being offered as the company’s entry level instrument for assay development and low throughput applications to cellular and biochemical studies. Details of the advancements will be presented at the upcoming Society for Biomolecular Sciences (SBS) meeting in St. Louis, April 6 – 10.
SRU Biosystems has developed a product line for label-free cell-based and biochemical applications, including advanced software tools, automation integration, and proprietary attachment coatings for cells and proteins.
The BIND® system supports the use of 8-, 16-, 96-, 384-, and 1536-well microplates using the Company’s patented optical biosensor technology in a user-defined manual, semi-automated or fully automated environment for kinetic or endpoint assays.
The Cartridge Reader is used for performing assays in 8- and 16-well formats, while the BIND® 96/384 TURBO Reader supports either 96- or 384-well microplates, and the recently developed the BIND® 384/1536 TURBO Reader is capable of analyzing 384- or 1536-well microplates.
