Gyros launches Gyros™ Application Service, the latest addition to the Company’s product portfolio

28-Jul-2005

Gyros Application Service is an assay service for the development and validation of new protein quantification assays. Customized assays are developed quickly and efficiently using Gyros ‘in-house’ expertise, providing customers with considerable cost and time savings.

Assay development with Gyros Application Service includes the identification of the most suitable binding pair for the customer’s application (for easy transfer into the customer’s laboratory), or, the development, optimization and verification of immunoassays for use in Gyrolab Bioaffy™.

Gyrolab Bioaffy CD microlaboratory is an open, flexible system for protein quantification, as well as being an effective and unique tool for the selection of binding pairs when developing sandwich immunoassays. Gyrolab Bioaffy CDs use nanoliter volumes and are automatically run in Gyrolab™ Workstation LIF, speeding up assay development and generating results in less than one hour.
