The SensoSpot® product line consists of Microarray Analyzers for fast-read out and analysis of multiplexed assays based on planar, low-density microarrays. Fluorescent microarrays can be read in two or three channels using the SensoSpot® Fluorescence. A wide range of fluorescent dyes are compatible.

SensoSpot® Colorimetry analyzes colorimetric microarrays on transparent or opaque surfaces.

The SensoSpot® Microarray Analyzers are specifically designed for flexibility: customized printing by one of our partners offers open configuration of panels and custom definition of consumables. The compact SensoSpot® platform is equipped with a built-in PC, touchscreen and Sensovation‘s powerful ArrayReader Software. All instruments are developed and manufactured under ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 and are prepared for certification of your IVD product.

The instrument comes standard - at no extra cost - with Sensovation’s ArrayReader Software, a powerful and intelligent “on-board” instrument-control and array-analysis software. The microarrays are analyzed directly during measurement. Intelligent spot-finding- and analysis- algorithms ensure that each spot of the microarray is measured based on special spot characteristics.

SensoSpot® Microarray Analyzers employ a solid state camera-based concept which is different to the scanning technology used in standard microarray laser scanners. The SensoSpot® is equipped with a high-sensitive, low-noise CCD camera for detection. Illumination and fluorescence excitation is done with high power LEDs.

As the entire microarray image is captured with one camera shot, image acquisition and result calculation is faster than with laser scanning technology. No moving optical parts are needed which makes the SensoSpot® tremendously robust – no need for time-consuming installation and alignment or recalibration after transportation.

To be closer to our customers and offer perfect support, Sensovation partners with local representatives for selected countries. These representatives are responsible for sales and support of our SensoSpot® Microarray Analyzer product line. For development projects, other products and other countries please contact the worldwide headquarter.

SensoSpot®

Product variants

SensoSpot® Fluorescence is a fully integrated, standalone instrument with touchscreen and built-in PC. It has been designed especially for the fast and easy read-out and analysis of low density fluorescent microarrays with a minimum spot diameter of 50 µm.

SensoSpot® Fluorescence is an open platform reader capable of reading and analyzing arrays in various formats, such as slides, 96-well plates, or other proprietary formats not exceeding the dimensions of an SBS microplate. 

Two instrument versions are available:

  • Two channel excitation
    SensoSpot® Fluorescence green/red
  • Three channel excitation
    SensoSpot® Fluorescene green/red/blue whereby the colors indicate the excitation wavelengths.

SensoSpot® Fluorescence is available as a stand-alone unit or on an OEM basis and can be easily integrated with standard laboratory automation systems.

Typical applications are multiplexed ELISAs and genotyping assays.
