The system uses a silicon chip containing arrays of photonic ring sensors that simultaneously analyze multiple antibodies and other proteins from a single small sample. Its one-step workflow is said to deliver results in as little as 15 minutes from small-volume samples of many types.

What's more, the company has signed its first European distribution agreements for the system: Mokascience (La Madeleine, France), Bucher Biotec (Basel, Switzerland), and KRD Molecular Technologies in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary.

Martin Gleeson, PhD, Genalyte's CSO, notes that the company plans to launch several new multiplex assays in the coming months in 2013, and expects additional distributor agreements for the system worldwide.

The system and its ENA 4, ENA 6, and ANA 14 assay kits are commercially available. For more information, please visit http://genalyte.com/maverick.
