GWC Technologies Inc introduced a dual-channel array imaging for its label-free analysis platform.
The dual-channel capability is built on the company’s SPRimagerII array system. The system combines an upgraded instrument, the SPRimagerII-D, with a new dual-channel flow cell.
The new cell uses the same design principles as the low volume cell, delivering improved fluidics and lower sample volume requirements when used with SpotReady16 chips, according to GWC Technologies. The two independent channels each with eight sample spots enhance many applications in life science and bioengineering research. For example, users can now monitor: multiple molecular interactions for two different analytes in parallel; multiple molecular interactions for two concentrations of the same analyte simultaneously; and adsorption of surface layers from organic or aqueous solutions, using the second channel as a control for the unmodified surface, according to GWC Technologies.
The interchangeable dual-channel, low volume, and standard flow cells for the SPRimagerII-D all maintain sufficient channel diameters to analyze the same broad spectrum of targets, ranging from oligos and peptides through proteins to whole virus particles and mammalian cells.
