This compact device has been designed to enhance performance and customer convenience. And with its multiple functions, we expect the IntelliPlex platform to have a significant impact in the Taiwan clinical market and beyond.”
PlexBio’s πCode™ MicroDisc technology is currently the largest multiplexing platform commercially available, capable of generating over 16,000 circular image patterns. Each image pattern corresponds to an individual target which can be detected simultaneously via the advanced optical imaging and fluorescence capabilities of the PlexBio™ 100. Prior to detection, the assay undergoes hybridization, washing, adding of fluorescence steps by using IntelliPlex™ 1000.
By using this higher order multiplexing platform, PlexBio is able to offer highly sensitive and specific results for both immuno and molecular diagnostic formats from very low input sample volumes - which saves time and labor. Multiple tests are currently undergoing clinical evaluation in hospital and clinical labs in the APAC region and the company expects the IntelliPlex™ and DigiPlex instrument systems to achieve the CE-Mark in the second half of 2017.
