Drop. Read. Done.

Label-Free Assays in a Drop

The Octet® N1 System brings label-free analysis to individual researchers and is affordably priced to fit even the lowest budget, so that everyone can have one. With this personal assay system, you can run protein quantitation and kinetics experiments with just 4 µL of sample—right at your own lab bench.

  • Simple and rapid - The Octet® N1 System enables the detection of specific mAbs, even in unpurified samples, in as little as 30 seconds.
  • Save sample - Affinity, binding kinetics and concentration analysis can be measured right at the bench in a 4 µL drop of sample.
Instantly test for presence of protein

Detect the presence or absence of active proteins in just a drop of sample, and easily identify specific proteins in complex solutions. Data from the Octet® N1 System complements existing methods like blots and gels, and its real-time binding curves provides instant visual confirmation.

Faster protein quantitation

Measure protein concentration without labeling or secondary detection reagents — even in crude media. With a wide dynamic range and sensitivity down to a few ng/mL, the Octet® N1 System gives you accurate quantitation in seconds compared to traditional methods that can often take hours.

Easy reagent QC testing

Rapidly identifying specific proteins with immunoassay-based techniques like ELISA or HPLC add many hours to the process and delay results. With the Octet® N1 System, proteins and antibodies can be quantitated in a matter of seconds with high specificity and sensitivity, even in crude samples.

Effortless kinetics

Get rate and affinity constants for binding interactions in minutes using only 4µL of sample. With both a small price and a small size, the Octet® N1 System can be your own personal label-free kinetics system. Ready to go right out of the box, its simple workflows let you run assays right at your lab bench with ease.

Smarter assay development

Monitoring the effects of changing conditions on binding interactions in real time, the Octet® N1 System lets you develop better immunoassays in only a few minutes. Find the best antibody pairs, identify the best assay parameters, and even build and optimize an ELISA step by step.
