for unrivalled productivity, ensuring optimum performance for low concentration high-throughput screening. The versatility of Bruker’s
software allows integration with Nextval’s screening technology to maximize sample density and reduce sample analysis costs.
screening technology is based on novel surface chemistries coupled with unique microarray acoustic deposition methods (EDC Biosystems & BioSero LLC) that address critical needs in several industries including the pharmaceutical, testing and industrial markets.
Dr. Matthew Greving, CSO of Nextval, stated: “The
is an invaluable tool for Nextval because it combines the sensitivity and throughput needed for our
customers, enabling fast accurate screening of potential drug candidates and enzyme activity.” Nextval recently has been awarded a Phase II SBIR grant to further develop and commercialize their
technology for high-throughput enzyme assays.
Dr. Paul Speir, Senior Vice President of Bruker Daltonics stated: “We are excited by the combination of Nextval’s
technology with the information rich, high throughput capabilities provided by the
. Moreover, we are pleased to support Nextval in their efforts to develop this important technology for the rapid
economical screening of drug candidates.”
