New Products: QuantiScientifics' A2 Multiplex IA Slide

Premium

QuantiScientifics recently launched its A2 Multiplex IA Slide, which enables users to prepare custom multiplex slide immunoassays. The new glass slide product can host 8 sub-arrays, each with 14 unique capture oligos. A slide kit of activated complementary oligos is available to prepare from between one and 14 oligo-antibody conjugates. A hybridization process results in the self-assembly of the oligo-antibody conjugates to corresponding capture oligos creating the antibody array for quantitative multiplex enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays.

According to the Irvine, Calif.-based company, customers can use a variety of array scanners and imagers to analyze the new slide product. The company said it also offers contract services for the development of multiplex assays and custom microarrays using the slide.
