mirrorball; transforming the efficiency of sandwich ELISAs

ELISAs are essential to drug discovery, but can become a bottleneck due to labour intensive protocols, inability to multiplex and large sample volume requirements.

Meet the solution – the highly sensitive mirrorball fluorescence cytometer and sol-RTM toolbox reagents!

A versatile tool for improving the speed, cost and quality of antibody discovery

Therapeutic antibody discovery represents a growth area within the pharmaceutical sector, however identifying and developing well characterised lead candidates with target specificity and species cross reactivity is time-consuming and costly.

Meet the solution – the mirrorball plate-based fluorescence cytometer and sol-R toolbox reagents!

Innovation: laser scanning imaging cytometry

Redesigning the technology that matters to you into a format that works for you

Is mirrorball a flow cytometer, or an ELISA plate reader? Neither, mirrorball combines the best of both, using our industry-proven laser scanning fluorescence cytometry to provide innovative and reliable HTS friendly workflows that deliver gold standard data.
