DropArray Technology for flow cytometry and Bead-based immunoassays

Technology and applications

How do wall-less plates work?

The DropArray plates are made with a hydrophobic planar surface and either 96- or 384- hydrophobic spots, arrayed in the standards SBS/ANSI format. DropArray plates are uniquely designed for three applications.

DA-Cell plates are used for cell processing of suspensions cells for flow cytometry assays. Each plate has 96 wells designed with two satellites to allow for dual-nozzle laminar flow washing via the DA-Cell washing station (HT1000). Each well has its own nozzles for quick and simultaneous washing of each well. Each well can have volumes up to 70 ul which is equivalent to approximately 5 million cells.





DA-Bead plates are used for Multiplex, Singulex, and other bead-based immunoassay assays. Plates are formatted in either 96- or 384-well formats and laminar flow washing occurs with by flooding the plate with buffer via the DropArray washing stations (LT210 or HT200).

Applications of DropArray Technology

Maximize Data Quality. Minimize Reagent Consumption.
DropArray technology has applications and product specific offerings in three main areas of research:
  • Multiplex and other bead-based platforms such as Singulex SMC
  • Cell processing for staining and retention of suspension cells in flow cytometry applications
