Quality and simplicity is what makes QGel® Products stand apart from other screening technologies. Capturing in vivo complexity of your cancer in vitro with QGel’s products is made easy with simple cell encapsulation steps, and with protocols for downstream analysis that are straightforward. QGel Products come in two formats: Vials for lab work and Assay Kits for high throughput screening campaigns.
QGel® Assay Kits are dimensioned to be compatible with standard laboratory automation systems. Caps can be removed robotically or manually depending on your assay.
Contains no cells
You only add your cell solution at the start of your assay. Each well of the QGel® Assay Kit is filled with a lyophilized powder. Kit shelf-life is 5-years at -20°C.
Barcode for tracking
High-throughput requires good tracking capabilities. Each QGel® Assay Kit has a unique reference to keep track of your automated screens.
QGel® Assay Kits are batch-manufactured to meet either GLP or GMP specifications in quantities that suit the needs of your screening application.
QGel® Vial products come packaged in standard 2R vials format. The caps can be easily removed by hand.
CONTAINS NO CELLS
You only add your cell solution at the start of your assay. Each QGel® Vial product is filled with a lyophilized powder. Shelf-life is 5-years at -20°C.
The 2R format is standard pharmaceutical format so whether working with 1 vial or 30, they will be compatible with existing lab ware and equipment.
QGel® products are batch-manufactured to meet either GLP or GMP specifications in quantities that suit the needs of your screening application.
QGel® Assay Kits are designed to be compatible with standard laboratory automation systems, but if you prefer, our kits can also be used with manual pipetting techniques.
As a general rule, any method you use for your cell-based assays today are compatible with QGel. If you need help, QGel scientists will help you get it right the first time.
Ready your cells
Prepare a cell solution with the right density of cells in a reservoir of choice. This cell solution will be added to the QGel® Assay Kit.
Add cells to QGel® Assay Kit
To start encapsulation, add the cell solution to the freeze-dried QGel powder. Your liquid handling robot will then dispense the liquid cell-QGel mixture to the assay plates before it hardens. This cell-QGel mixture hardens into a gel after a few minutes.
Encapsulate cells in Assay Plates
After dispensing the liquid cell-QGel mixture into the assay plates, the solution hardens into a gel and encapsulates the cells. Media-changes, drug testing and readouts can now be done at different timepoints.
