Cirascan™ Imager & Cirasoft™ Analysis
The Ciraplex® assay enables multiplex efficiencies with ELISA performance. CiraPlex arrays are precisely printed in a circular pattern, allowing for up to 12 analytes per well. This design requires less sample volume per test than ELISA and provides significantly improved sensitivity, reproducibility, dynamic range, and accuracy. Ciraplex® offers a full menu of multiple validated biomarker assays across 7 species — all of which offer ELISA-level sensitivity and reproducibility. Aushon’s menu covers a wide breadth of critical therapeutic areas, including inflammation, oncology, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and obesity/diabetes. You can choose from various human blood biomarkers including:
- Cytokine receptors
- Angiogenesis factors
- Cell adhesion molecules
- Matrix Metalloproteinases
For preclinical work, Aushon provides the analytes from the following species:
- Non-human primate
Ciraplex® assays provide researchers with the convenience and productivity of multiplexing without compromising the sensitivity and consistency of singleplex ELISA.
Cirascan™ is a specially designed imager that captures multiple images from a Ciraplex® array, using an astronomy-grade cooled CCD camera with high-end optics. The imager uses a patent pending multiple exposure image acquisition algorithm to produce a high resolution composite image of each chemiluminescent array plate. An easy to use interface allows new users to operate Cirascan with minimal training. Simply prep samples using familiar ELISA protocols, place the plate into the compact, benchtop imager, and receive fully analyzed results within minutes!
Cirascan’s intuitive Apple iPad touch screen user interface allows researchers to select a plate layout created at their desktop computer and enter it on Cirascan via a network connection, Sample identification information can be entered directly into a plate layout with the optional Cira™ barcode reader.
Save analysis time with Cirasoft™ and Cirareports™
To make reporting easy, Cirasoft™ automatically identifies the exact coordinates of each array spot, creates standard curves, and calculates the protein concentration of each analyte for unknown samples. The software provides accurate raw, tabulated, and graphical data of your Ciraplex® arrays within minutes.
For large studies, Aushon offers Cirareports, the ultimate in bioinformatics. This optional software package aggregates data across all plates for instant viewing of data in your chosen format. Cirareports will save days of analysis for multi-plate users.
