Unleashing Label-Free Sensing

Rapid Testing for Academic and Clinical Research

Breaking Barriers to Accessing Surface Plasmon Resonance

Top three barriers limiting the discoveries of thousands of researchers globally

High Cost

Capital costs to purchasing traditional SPR devices often exceed grant funding sizes. Also, operational and maintenance costs are limiting the use of the technique despite growing demand.

Narrow Applications

SPR has been almost exclusively focused on drug discovery despite increasing demand for more flexible and open instrumentation for emerging applications such as (bio)sensing and advanced materials.

Required Expertise

The complexity and high cost of operation of traditional SPR devices require the instrumentation to be in centralized labs operated by dedicated highly trained personnel.

our solution

The P4SPR is one of the world’s most compact multi-channel SPR device. This book-size device is designed for rapid testing. Convert your real-time data into meaningful results within minutes. Tested in crowded lab spaces and in open fields, the versatile P4SPR is your perfect companion for biomolecular interaction investigation, clinical assay optimization, and even environmental testing. Contact us to see how the P4SPR can accelerate your discoveries.

Monitoring therapeutic drugs for dosage optimization

The emergence of personalized and stratified medicine is changing the landscape of clinical testing, driving the need for new point-of-care devices. Innovative diagnostic devices are essential for realizing these emerging trends. 

Label-free affinity biosensors are widely considered to be the technological solution to address these challenges. Together with academic and clinical research institutions, we strive to accelerate the commercialization of high-potential discoveries into the global market.
