Nicoya Lifesciences OpenSPR-XT

Nicoya Lifesciences has launched OpenSPR-XT, a fully automated molecular analysis instrument based on the company's OpenSPR instrument. The OpenSPR-XT is a surface plasmon resonance instrument that uses proprietary nanotechnology-based sensors to provide high-quality molecular interaction data at a fraction of the cost of traditional SPR instruments. The product provides crucial data needed by life sciences researchers, such as binding kinetics, affinity, and specificity of proteins, antibodies, nucleic acids, small molecules, and more. Combining the technology with robust and user-friendly automation, the product saves time, reduces errors, and improves data quality and repeatability, according to the company.
