Microfluidics & Consumables
Immunoassays quantify biomolecules such as proteins or antigens. Assays can also be multiplexed which means they simultaneously measure and detect multiple analytes from a single sample.
Microfluidics are an effective technology to simplify immunoassay workflows and move toward point-of-care diagnostics. Microfluidics offer several advantages to traditional immunoassay workflows:
IDEX Health & Science has extensive experience in developing microfluidics cartridges for immunoassays. We can integrate a variety of materials (e.g. silicon, glass, polymers) into cartridges that are capable of washing, mixing, and incubation with customized and adjustable fluidic scripting. With IDEX Health & Science microfluidics, the workflow is not locked into a single flow path and the customer can easily adjust scripting to alter a workflow without design change.
In addition, we can provide surface functionalization for immunocapture or blocking as well as lyophilized reagents for complete on-chip systems. Our history with glass suppliers and machining, lends to superior optical detection for immunoassay cartridges.
