Many years of development and the expertise of highly qualified scientists from Randox has been invested to create the Biochip Array Technology (BAT) – a multi-analyte testing platform facilitating the simultaneous quantitative or qualitative detection of a wide range of analytes from a single sample. Biochip Array Technology provides a unique platform for assessment of biological samples in a rapid, accurate and easy to use format and users can have the utmost confidence in this proven technology.
A chemically activated 9x9mm ceramic biochip acts as a solid phase reaction vessel. Biochips are pre-fabricated with discrete test regions (DTR’s); a different antibody/oligonucleotide is immobilised at each spatially distinct DTR. Up to 49 individual DTR’s can be arrayed on to a single biochip with one biochip per sample used to generate multiple results simultaneously. This eliminates the need to run costly, time consuming and sample intensive single analyte assays. The biochip detection is based on a chemiluminescent signal emitting light, without heat, as a result of a chemical reaction. The light emitted is simultaneously detected and quantified using a CCD camera.
