  • The future belongs to multiplex

    The future belongs
    to multiplex.

    Meet the Microblot–Array.
    Multiplex diagnostics
    in microtiter plate format.

Microblot–Array.
Brings ELISA’s
high throughput to BLOT testing

Microblot-Array. Multiplex diagnostics in microtiter plate format.

Microblot–Array (MBA) is a new generation of unique, immunoblot array in a microtiter plate format. It is designed for efficient multiplex diagnostics, enabling the simultaneous detection of multiple markers which can save time and lower costs.
The technology eliminates the limited capacity of traditional BLOT strips and opens the opportunity for high throughput testing.
Processing can be performed automatically using open ELISA analysers. The evaluation is performed by the Microblot–Array Reader and software (SW). Results can be exported in various formats and the system can be connected to LIS.

How it works?
Microblot–Array method at a glance.

Microblot-Array method at a glance

The Microblot–Array uses the same principle as immunoblot but in a microplate format rather than a strip.
During the test, specific antibodies in the sample bind with antigens in a well. Next, the wells are incubated with a conjugate and bound antibodies react with the alkaline phosphatase labeled antibody. Visualisation of this reaction is achieved thanks to incubation with substrate solution. Distilled water is then added to stop the reaction. The Reader measures the colour change of the spots and the results are evaluated by interactive software.


The well contains control spots to both check for the presence of the appropriate conjugate and to confirm the reaction has been performed correctly. Calibration spots are used to generate a calibration curve, which allows quantification of the specific antibodies in the sample.

Method & principle Multiplex.
So much to discover – in a single well.

Up to 5 BLOT tests in 1 ELISA–like well Method & principle

All in one. Perfected!
Tripled spots in MBA well left
no room for mistake.

Breakable wells for flexible testing. Every spot in triplicate:
Reference spots – used to orientate the SW during evaluation
Test control – checks the functionality of the test
Conjugate control – verifies presence of conjugate
4 calibration spots – creates a calibration curve for quantitative evaluation
Diagnostic spots – unique, highly specific antigens

Turn diagnostics into a symphony

Microblot–Array kit

Ready to use reagents: Positive control – solution containing specific antibodies
Conjugate – solution containing alkaline phosphatase labeled animal immunoglobulin
Substrate solution – buffer with BCIP and NBT
Universal solution – buffer for sample dilution and strip washing

Microplate Recombinant antigens are spotted in triplicate on a nitrocellulose membrane and fixed at the bottom of each well.
The microplate consists of 96 breakable wells, with each well representing one test. On the outside of the bottom of each well is a barcode for automatic identification by the reader.

Color–coded wells to distinguish between antibody classes:
IgG – blueIgA – greenIgM – red
