BIND® ScannerSRU Biosystems
SRU Biosystems provides detection tools used in drug discovery and life sciences research. The company’s patented BIND® technology analyzes biomolecular interactions of cells, proteins, genomic materials, peptides, antibodies and small molecules, and completes this analysis quickly. The technology is a fundamental advance in monitoring biological interactions.
The PI team’s goal was to enclose this innovative technology in a housing that was streamlined and attractive and allowed user-friendly access to needed areas. Several concept designs and a series of color studies explored the best options for features and aesthetics. The final concept offers a front panel that is removable for access to the illuminator and a top cover that features masked and painted detail.
The BIND® Scanner is a first-of-its-kind, plate-based monitoring instrument with high read times and low cell numbers. It allows researchers to work with cell types that were previously difficult or impossible to analyze.
