Porvair Sciences has collaborated with Persomics to develop and supply ANSI/SLAS format arrays as an OEM product for its ImagineArray platform.
On the Persomics ImagineArray platform, traditional microplate wells are replaced with contact-printed spots on a slide which is mounted into an SLAS/ANSI format frame. Each spot is a unique experiment that edits or silences a single gene in cells growing above the RNA spot. Each spot encapsulates an individual or pooled gRNA, siRNA or miRNA and all the reagents needed for transfection. ImagineArrays enable researchers to edit or silence thousands of genes on a single slide making them the perfect tool for cell-based screening as well as advanced experiments such as drug/gene interaction screens and synthetic lethality. This proprietary technology reduces the time and cost of drug discovery by double digit factors.
Working closely with Porvair Sciences, Persomics refined its spotted arrays and was able to have them successfully embedded in the frames made and assembled by Porvair to its demanding specification.
