OVERVIEW

IN THE RACE TO FIND IMPORTANT CELLS, THE BEACON PLATFORM SAVES TIME, MONEY AND EFFORT.

The Beacon platform replaces a roomful of equipment to deliver insights from individual cells and clones dramatically faster than any other technology. Get rid of time-intensive, manual analysis, and use the Beacon platform’s automated, easily-scalable, workflows. Assay cells any time, and gain greater insights through deep profiling.

1000s OF CELLS

OPTOSELECT CHIPS MOVE 1000s OF CELLS IN PARALLEL WHILE CULTURING, ASSAYING AND MEASURING EACH ONE.

OPTOSELECT 1750 CHIP

0.25 nL NanoPens are designed for the highest throughput of single cell screening. Each of the 14,115 Nanopens are designed to hold ≈ 5 cells and are ideal for Plasma B cell screening.

100X INSIGHTS

THE BEACON PLATFORM’S DEEP PROFILING REVEALS 100X THE INSIGHTS OF LEGACY TECHNOLOGIES.

The Beacon platform can capture bright field and fluorescence images of each NanoPen in an OptoSelect chip at any time. Track and assay the same individual cell across multiple time points to reveal deep profiling—richly detailed “fingerprints” of cells and clones you can’t get any other way.

INTERFACE VIDEO

A SIMPLE, POWERFUL, TOUCH-SCREEN INTERFACE AUTOMATES YOUR WORKFLOW WITH PRECISE CELL IMAGING.

Watch how easy it is to select the top clones for export in this video. Our software makes it fast and straightforward to analyze cells and clones, assay cell cultures, and capture data graphically.

 

10X FASTER

WITH 10X FASTER WORKFLOWS, THE BEACON PLATFORM WILL PROVE ITS VALUE FROM THE FIRST CHIP RUN.

Imagine how much further you can take your science with a cell workflow that shortens the cell selection process from months to just days. Bring the right biologic therapies into clinical testing faster. Identify the cells that matter much sooner. Move any field light-years ahead.
