Real confirmation of potentially deadly samples

Biological Detection

Brukers pBDi uses a sandwich electrochemical ELISA procedure for the highly sensitive and fully automated detection of all kinds of biothreat agents (bacteria, viruses and toxins). Antibodies immobilized on gold electrodes attached to electrodes of a biochip facilitate the specific capture of corresponding biothreat agents from an applied sample.  

The detection of the captive biothreat agents is realized by measuring the electrical current of an enzymatic redox reaction.The current correlates to the amount of target bound to the specific antibodies. Up to 6 biothreat agents can be rapidly detected in parallel within 20 minutes assay time.
