Bionas has launched new adcon reader for impedance-based cellular analysis. The company said that the reader technology is based on real-time monitoring of cellular impedance, thus giving real-time data about cell adhesion, membrane integrity, cellular morphology and cell proliferation for applications in toxicology, oncology, receptor signaling as well as the quality management of cells.

Bionas claimed that the technology allows for the analysis of cellular behavior in real-time without the use of any dyes or antibodies, thus avoiding the result being biased by the manipulation of the cells during the assay.

The Bionas adcon reader comes with Bionas plate station, Bionas analyzer and a control unit (PC) and offers handling in 96-well format for laboratory research and HTS applications.

Bionas also expects to launch the Bionas 15002 RtU-Transporter system, an advancement of the existing two-channel Bionas 15002 analyzing system, but especially adapted for the analysis of membrane transport mechanisms and their role in multidrug resistances.

According to Bionas 15002 RtU-Transporter system is the first automatic, label-free test system in the area of membrane transporter research, measuring impedance, O2-consumption and acidification.

With the new analyzing systems, Bionas is responding to the increasing demand of the life science community for label-free, real-time assays. Bionas is convinced that the recognized Bionas 2500 analyzing system, for real-time monitoring of impedance (adhesion), acidification and O2 consumption, will be perfectly complemented by the new Bionas adcon reader and the Bionas 15002 RtU-Transporter system.

With the expansion of its product portfolio and the resulting applications, Bionas continuous to offer solutions and applications to its customers at the same time building on the advantage of label-free technology.
