Know What’s In Your Protein, Cell and Gene Therapies
Characterizing biopharmaceutical products is no easy task, and traditional "counting techniques" just won't cut it. Regulatory agencies are calling for a more holistic approach—that's now possible with FMM, a particle-identifying technology exclusively available on Aura.
Now you can get 100% sampling efficiency at unparalleled speeds, making it possible to characterize and differentiate anything from a single aggregate protein or cell to tens of millions of particles in under two hours.
How FMM Works
Solution Phase Stain
A fluorescent dye reagent is mixed with the sample in a test tube prior to applying it to a backgrounded plate. BMI and FMM measurements can then be taken.
Membrane Phase Stain
Microscopic particles are captured on the membrane surface and labeled with a fluorescent reagent. This can be accomplished using normal BMI steps with 40 µL of fluorescent reagent added to the sample with a second vacuum applied so the FMM measurement can be taken.
