Sidekick™ Offline Biosensor Immobilization Station

The Sidekick station enables simultaneous and uniform reagent loading onto all 96 biosensors in a biosensor tray. Target analyte and other reagents that do not require online signal monitoring can be loaded onto biosensors on the Sidekick, freeing the Octet® instrument for other users. This accessory can be installed beside an Octet system and used in collaboration with it, or can be used independently.

  • Offline loading of reagents on biosensors
  • Simultaneous loading on up to 96 biosensors
  • Automation compatibility
  • Small and portable
  • Ideal for creating large batches of custom biosensors
  • Decreases incubation times; increases assay precision and sensitivity

When preparing custom biosensors, shaking the biosensors with the samples on the Sidekick station halves the required incubation time, thereby doubling the biosensor preparation productivity. Further efficiency can be obtained by using the Sidekick station in conjunction with a liquid-handling robotic workstation to automate the custom biosensor preparation. The Sidekick station enables robust, multi-step Octet sandwich assays by decreasing incubation times during sample capture and simultaneously increasing assay precision due to its unique shaking routine.
