Tips for using the SMCxPRO® Platform

All SMC® kits are run on the ultrasensitive, fluidics-free SMCxPRO® immunoassay platform. Check out these articles for tips on correctly using this platform to get the most out of your precious samples.

Tricks to Enhance SMC® Workflows

Explore articles full of tricks that will optimize your SMC® workflows to your specific research needs.

Ensure Thorough Plate Washing

Use ancillary equipment and kits specifically designed for SMC® technology. For example:

Workflow Automation

Help reduce sources of variability and error from manual labor by automating the SMC® immunoassay workflow with the Hamilton Microlab® STARlet liquid handling workstation.

Data Analysis

Easily evaluate your assay data at the single assay level, over multiple plates, or over multiple lots with Belysa® Immunoassay Curve Fitting Software.
