Personal assay BLItz System

Label-free assays in a drop

Drop. Read. Done.

The BLItz® System brings label-free analysis to individual researchers, and is affordably priced so everyone can have one. With this personal assay system, you can run protein quantitation and kinetics experiments in only 4 µL of sample—right at your own lab bench.

Label-Free Analysis on BLItz SystemLabel-Free Analysis on BLItz System
  •  

    Simple and rapid

    The BLItz System enables the detection of specific mAbs, even in unpurified samples, in as little as 30 seconds.

  •  

    Save sample

    Affinity, concentration, and binding kinetics can be measured right at the bench in a 4 µL drop of sample.

  • Instant protein presence

    Detect the presence or absence of active proteins in just a drop of sample, and easily identify specific proteins in complex solutions. Data from the BLItz System complements existing methods like blots and gels, and its real-time binding curves give instant visual confirmation.

  • Faster protein quantitation

    Measure protein concentration without labeling or secondary reagents — even in crude media. With a wide dynamic range and sensitivity down to a few ng/mL, the BLItz System gives you accurate quantitation in seconds compared to traditional methods that can often take hours.

  • Easy reagent QC testing

    Rapidly identifying specific proteins with immunoassay-based techniques like ELISA or HPLC add many hours to the process and delay results. With the BLItz System, proteins and antibodies can be quantitated in a matter of seconds with high specificity and sensitivity, even in crude samples.

  • Effortless kinetics

    Get rate and affinity constants for binding interactions (ka, kd, KD) in minutes using only 4µL of sample. With both a small price and a small size, the BLItz System can be your own personal label-free kinetics system. Ready to go right out of the box, its simple workflows let you run assays right at your lab bench with ease.

  • Smarter assay development

    Monitoring the effects of changing conditions on binding interactions in real time, the BLItz System lets you develop better immunoassays in only a few minutes. Find the best antibody pairs, identify the best assay parameters, and even build and optimize an ELISA step by step.

Application Note Fast Quantitation of Proteins and Antibodies Using the BLItz System

Traditional techniques for determining concentration of a target protein such as ELISA and HPLC are both elaborate and timeconsuming, especially when analyzing complex matrices. For bioprocess development and production applications, the use of more rapid protein analysis techniques enables timely, informed process decisions.
