Human cell-based assays can accurately predict toxicity levels in human beings. A Visiongain report predicts that the world market for cell-based assay products and cell-based assay services is set to grow at a rapid pace. The report, published in January 2012, also forecast that the cell-based assay services submarket will grow faster than the overall market at a compound annual growth rate of 15.9% to 2016. Further, cell-based assays used for toxicity testing is expected to drive market growth over the next decade.

ChemWell TWhen it comes to precise and cost-effective assays, few products can rival the ChemWell T from Awareness Technologies, Inc. Designed for biochemistry and immuno-turbidimetric assays in lower throughput laboratories, this product is far from a mini version of a high throughput analyzer. A PC-controlled random access open system, it offers optimal quality, speed, dependability, and economy. Its cuvettes are easy to load and unload and reusable after washing. Other useful features:

  • Delivers 5mL to 450mL with typical precision of 2% CV or better
  • Oscillates to mix, detects liquid surface, and measures remaining volume
  • Retracts if probe encounters an obstacle
  • Features automatic washing capability
  • Calculates and edits curves for a wide variety of assays
  • Provides checks and error messages
  • One year warranty

The system features a full QC package with tracking options for calibrators and controls. This fully automated, random access analyzer is also an ideal backup option. Improving process flow in labs and yielding results with enhanced diagnostics value, the ChemWell T 4610 PC Controlled Chemistry and Turbidimetric Analyzer is a valuable addition to any lower throughput lab performing end-point and kinetic assays.
