The new SR-Plex benchtop instrument uses single-molecule measurements to assess proteins and can significantly reduce sample volume requirements when compared to alternative approaches. Its benchtop format can be easily integrated with existing automation platforms. This detector is capable of measuring nucleic acids with ultra sensitivity, without utilizing PCR. The SR-Plex is part of a menu of more than 70 protein-detection assays and critical biomarker-multiplex assays. In addition to a smaller instrument footprint, the SR-Plex has been optimized for increased multiplexing capabilities, making it an easy to use and economical option for high-sensitivity biomarker analysis, whether for proteins or nucleic acids.
