- Protein functional and interaction analysis
Biotechnology Equipment for Clinical Diagnostics
Bio-Rad's Clinical Diagnostics Group develops, manufactures, sells, and supports a large portfolio of biotechnology equipment for laboratory diagnostics: products for the detection, identification, and quantification of biomolecules in bodily fluids and tissue. Bio-Rad is a leading specialty diagnostics company with an extensive range of biotechnology equipment for low-, medium-, and high-volume clinical applications in the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of diseases and other medical conditions. Bio-Rad products are recognized as the gold standard for diabetes monitoring and quality control (QC) systems. Our advanced biotechnology equipment features platforms for fully automated, random-access, multiplex testing for clinical diagnostic assays including bead-based immunoassays, microplate assays, readers and washers, and western blot processing.
Clinical diagnostics applications include:
- Autoimmunity testing
- Blood typing and blood-borne disease assays
- Diabetes testing
- Genetic testing
- Microbiology testing
- Newborn screening
- Quality control systems
Biotechnology Equipment for Process Separations
Process-scale separation systems, mainly high-volume chromatography systems, are among the most crucial biotechnology equipment in the modern biopharmaceutical industry. Applications of process chromatography include:
- Recombinant protein purification
- IgG purification and virus removal
- Monoclonal antibody (mAb) purification
- Purification of serum proteins and enzymes
From pilot to production scale, Bio-Rad offers a full line of process chromatography hardware that is directly scalable and includes quality documentation for regulatory support and compliance with U.S and European regulations. Our extensive experience in separation technology allows us to quickly implement custom solutions for new applications.
