IHC and IF

IHC and IF

Manual cell staining techniques are often tedious and time consuming, and require many optimizations of the various steps (for example, fixation techniques, adequate blocking reagents, and appropriate antibody concentrations, washing and optimized incubation times). Automating these processes helps to address these pitfalls and provides increased productivity, throughput and reproducibility. Automation allows researchers to accelerate their assay development and aids in the discovery of new biomarkers that could be successful candidates for new therapies.

Hamilton offers high-quality and flexible automated solutions that require less setup time than manual processes and are less prone to user error, thus allowing reliable and reproducible methods, quality data and good science.
