Maximize Data Quality. Minimize Reagent Consumption.

DropArray Microplates enable easy and convenient miniaturization of cell- or bead-based 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. In addition, the plates have been optimized to provide unique assay benefits, including 5-10 fold increased throughput of data with standard samples and reagents. The DropArray platform is a valuable tool to help optimize protocols and expand assay capabilities.

Application Traditional Microplate Challenges DropArray Platform Advantages
Bead-based Immunoassays 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
PBMC Assays
Bone Marrow Cell Assays
Immuno-oncology 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%.

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.
