Lyophilized reagent beads

Biofortuna offer custom lyophilized beads

As global experts in freeze-drying, Biofortuna  can support a range of lyophilization formats including freeze-drying in glass and plastic vials as well as custom vessels/ devices.

We also offer bespoke lyophilized reagent beads. Spheres of customizable lyophilized material that contain a specific volume of material per reaction while maximising surface area for rapid reconstitution.

For many assays lyophilized reagent beads are the best solution.

Benefits of beads include;

Long term stability at ambient temperatures. No freezer or fridge is required and no temperature control for shipping.
More reproducible results, less risk of pipetting errors and contamination.
Reduction in assay turnaround time (eg. ELISA).
Ease of handling.
Less incubation steps.
Tested and verified for real time quantitative PCR.
