PIXI Immunoassay Platform
Plate-based immunoassays are the workhorse of protein quantification, but these decades-old methods require tedious manual intervention, have limited dynamic range, require relatively large (50-100 μL) sample volume, and have long assay times.
The PIXI system consists of an assay cartridge and a corresponding module that sits on the deck of an automated liquid handler. Each assay kit includes the necessary reagents and a single 96-test cartridge. PIXI cartridges contain a proprietary nanoporous polymer, which accelerates the molecular interactions required to capture protein targets. After 30 min, users transfer the PIXI cartridge to your own imager to complete the readout. With a 6-log dynamic range and only 1 ul of sample volume required, this automated platform is a game-changer for your laboratory workflow.

“I liked the quickness of the assay. It was pretty easy to learn and be able to use quickly.”
“The low sample volume is great!”
“Software is streamlined. This lends to easily training others on using the equipment.”
“This is orders of magnitude better than what I’m used to…1000 ug/ml upper limit of detection, that’s insane. We’re used to 1 to 2 log dynamic range for ELISA so 3.5 log is amazing!”
“It uses so little sample…and it reduced a lot of the pipetting!”
