Address more variables with automated assay development for confident assay design
Is your assay really optimized?
Make light work of assay development
Assay development is typically a highly manual process, both in terms of experimental design and set-up. The laborious nature of this process can limit the amount of optimisation that is performed and frustratingly, assays often require
Complex DoE, or Design of Experiments, is a powerful tool for assay developers. dragonfly discovery enables researchers to fully harness the power of DoE through a combination of high dynamic range non-contact dispensing of multiple liquids along with intuitive, flexible and open format software.
Time course assays needn’t be time consuming
Find yourself tied to your timer? There’s no doubt that the time-consuming nature of kinetic assays limits productivity. If you dare to do something in between you risk missing a time point. If you don’t, the day can easily pass with little achieved. Our technology enables the full automation of kinetic assays freeing up valuable time for other tasks.
Until now, no one technology has been capable of accurately pipetting a wide range of liquid viscosities, from solvents to viscous protein stock solutions. There is no longer any need to let your assay development be dictated by the liquids you can dispense. The unique design of dragonfly discovery ensures reliable, robust and reproducible pipetting of a wide range of liquid types including: cells, beads, DMSO, detergents and viscous samples.
The viable option for cells
When working with cells, any automation solution must be fast, accurate and gentle enough to ensure cell viability is maintained. Cells pipetted by dragonfly discovery not only show equivalent viability to those pipetted by hand, but the system is fast enough to ensure cell numbers remain consistent from the first dispense to the last. dragonfly discovery is the ideal all-round solution for assay development. Any liquid, any volume,
