The Corning Epic System is a high-throughput label-free screening platform based on optical biosensor technology. The system performs both biochemical and cell-based drug discovery applications and offers drug developers the ability to evaluate promising new drug targets. It also allows for the observation of direct biological interactions not previously detectable in high-throughput applications.
The Corning Epic System consists of an ANSI/SBS-standard 384-well microplate with optical sensors and HTS-compatible microplate reader capable of reading up to 40,000 wells per eight hours and a set of label-free, direct-bind, and functional assay protocols. This combination of features and performance capabilities not only enables researchers to evaluate many of the biomolecular interactions in molecular and cellular biology, but also provides the added benefit of integration with an already installed HTS capital base.
