xMAP® Assay Automation

Bead-based multiplexing streamlines traditional immunogenicity testing

xMAP<sup>®</sup> Assay Automation

In research and clinical labs, automation is essential for reducing variability and improving the reliability of results. Whether you run the occasional high-volume test or consistently use assays based on xMAP® Technology, automation can be practical and advantageous for optimizing productivity and your lab’s workflows.

Unlike traditional immunoassays or nucleic acid arrays, xMAP® bead-based assays are run entirely in a liquid medium, meaning there are no solid-phase substrates. This significantly decreases the time to results and makes them ideal for automation.

Why automate?

Here are some of the most commonly cited reasons to automate a lab workflow:

  • Eliminates person-to-person and day-to-day variability with standardized processing
  • Increases throughput without compromising results
  • Decreases the volume of reagents needed for an experiment
  • Reduces the possibility of repetitive strain injury
  • Mitigates the risk of possible experimental contamination
  • Improves trackability

Liquid Handler considerations

The best-automated liquid handling workstations offer flexibility in configuration and applications and allow users to customize their workflow based on their desired throughput, dynamic volume range, and other requirements.

When evaluating an automation solution, consider criteria such as the plate format, speed of liquid handling, deck capacity, system and software integration, and upgradability.
