FAST® Protein Arrays Are Ideal For Multiple Applications
Protein arrays are now recognized as a key tool for proteomics research. FAST slides offer unmatched binding capacity, sensitivity and reproducibility ideal for all of your protein array applications. GVS Life Sciences provides a full line of products and services that allow you to apply the FAST Slide technology to any multiplex need.
The high reproducibility and microporous structure of FAST Slides make them excellent for protein arrays used to diagnose infection and autoimmune diseases and for vaccine development and immunity monitoring. In protein arrays, a purified protein is spotted on the FAST Slide surface and the array is used to detect the presence of antibodies or other binding proteins in clinical or experimental samples.
Reverse Phase Protein Arrays (RPPAs)
The high binding capacity, sensitivity and reproducibility of FAST Slides make them ideal for Reverse Phase Protein Arrays (RPPAs) used for biomarker discovery and characterization and in clinical trials to monitor drug effectiveness and disease progression. FAST Slides allow quantitative binding across the broad dynamic range of protein concentration found in complex biological samples, such as cell lysates or tumor aspirates, arrayed directly onto the slides. The expression of specific proteins is detected with antibodies to the biomarkers of interest. GVS Life Sciences’ quality controlled FAST Slide production ensures a consistent surface that allows multiple clinical samples to be interrogated with a variety of antibodies simultaneously.
Antibody Arrays or Micro-Spot ELISA
FAST slides are arrayed with multiple antibodies and the presence of specific proteins is detected by applying a complex biological sample to the slide. When used in combination with a standard curve, the unsurpassed binding capacity that retains the native conformation of proteins bound on FAST Slides allows detection and quantitationof multiple proteins in a single sample.
Fast Slides provide an optimum immunoassay surface
The high binding capacity over a broad dynamic range results from the surfaces sensitivity during quantitative protein recovery from complex biological samples.
Fast Slides offer long-term stability
FAST Slides provide a stabilizing environment such that proteins arrayed with the GVS Life Sciences Protein Arraying Buffer retain their binding characteristics for more that a year. As shown, there is no deterioration in the fluorescent signal on a FAST Slide from 3-12 months in storage. The long-term stability offers the flexibility of being ready whenever you are.
Fast Slides are a broadly compatible open platform
FAST Slides are ready for printing (arraying) right out of the box with no activation. They come in different pad formats and are compatible with contact and non-contact printing methods and with existing manual arrayers, robots, scanners and all methods of detection including fluorescence, chemiluminescence, colorimetric and isotopic. Their compatibility make FAST Slides easy to set up and use with low costs and minimal start-up time.Our focus on quality at GVS Life Sciences (registered to the ISO:9001 standard) ensures production of the most consistent surface possible providing the most reproducible results with every slide, every time. The FAST line from GVS Life Sciences provides an unparalleled set of quantitative and non-quantitative multiplexed assays.
