Next-generation biosensors for drug discovery and life sciences

The Creoptix® WAVEsystem
Get superior affinity and kinetic data, even for the most challenging samples.

  • Measure interactions, not interference


    Engineered around a proprietary Grating-Coupled Interferometry (GCI) technology, the Creoptix® WAVE system builds on waveguide interferometry to achieve superior resolution in signal and time. With low limits of detection, the WAVEsystem generates accurate kinetic rates, affinity constants, and concentrations of label-free biomolecular interactions, even at low analyte abundance, with no loss of definition.

    Grating-Coupled Interferometry

    A distinguishing advantage of the WAVE is the patented Grating Coupled Interferometry (GCI) design. GCI is based on waveguide interferometry to determine kinetics, affinity, and concentrations of the interacting molecules.

  • Screening of crude reaction mixtures

    In this TechNote we show how the WAVEsystem provides a reliable environment to support optimisation of hits in fragment-based drug discovery. With high sensitivity and robust microfluidics, the WAVEsystem offers kinetic data in excellent agreement with Biacore T200 measurements. This is illustrated through a retrospectively measured Vernalis campaign to identify selective, potent inhibitors of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Kinase 2 (PDHK2) and Heat Shock Protein 90 (HSP90).

  • Pushing the boundaries in pharmaceutical hit discovery with the novel waveRAPID® kinetic assay

    In this TechNote, conducted by an HTS drug discovery group of our customer Idorsia Pharmaceuticals Ltd, we demonstrate the power of waveRAPID in streamlining the kinetic characterization of large numbers of drug hit compounds, with results comparable to traditional SPR and high reproducibility.
