PR2 Series

Meso Scale Defense’s technology uses proprietary MULTI-ARRAY and MULTI-SPOT microplates with carbon electrodes integrated into the bottom of the plate. Biological reagents can be attached to the carbon simply by passive adsorption and retain a high level of biological activity. MSD assays use non-radioactive, stable electrochemiluminescent labels which emit light at 620 nm when electrochemically stimulated. Model 1800 is a reader-only configuration for high throughput applications. Model 1500 has automated sampling processing for aerosol sampling applications. Model 1900 has a fully automated laboratory workstation with sample handing interface.
