Maximize Data Quality. Minimize Reagent Consumption.
DropArray Microplates enable easy and convenient miniaturization of cell- or Luminex® assays by 5-10 fold with minimal optimization and without compromising data quality. Researchers can easily conserve reagents, beads and precious samples — providing measurable cost savings — all while maintaining assay quality and sensitivity. The DropArray platform is a valuable tool to help optimize protocols and expand assay capabilities.
|Application||Traditional Microplate Challenges||DropArray Platform Advantages|
|Luminex Assays||Beads and assay reagents are expensive, limiting data output. The majority of beads, which are very costly, are wasted unnecessarily.||Miniaturization with the DA-Bead plates reduces sample volume and bead consumption by 5X and decreases assay costs by >60% without compromising quality or sensitivity.|
|Suspension Cell Assays
B and T Cell Assays
Bone Marrow Cell Assays
|Extensive cell loss during media changes, washings and screening can cause unreliable and inconsistent results, making many assays unfeasible.||Gentle, low-velocity liquid exchange 'on-plate' helps retain cells and consistency for all protocols involving washing.
The liquid lid sealing fluid eliminates evaporation, while allowing efficient gas exchange.
|High Content Assays||Multi-step staining procedures add a huge (unsustainable) expense.||Minimizing cell use helps drastically reduce antibody and reagent costs, up to 90%.|
|iPS/Stem Cell and
Differentiation Cell Assays
|Scarce cells are expensive and hard to come by in large quantities.||Minimizes cell use — use as little as 250 cells per well to preserve precious cells.|
