WPI Expands EVOM™ Auto for High-Throughput TEER Measurements in Drug Discovery
Tuesday, October 24, 2023
World Precision Instruments (WPI) has extended the capabilities of the EVOM™ Auto, now providing a single platform with both 24 and 96 multiwell capacity. The EVOM™ Auto is a powerful tool for quickly and reliably measuring Transepithelial Electrical Resistance (TEER), a widely accepted method for evaluating epithelial and endothelial cells and tissues.
This expansion marries TEER technology with high throughput screening capabilities, automating measurements of tissue and monolayer barrier integrity, cell permeability, and cell confluency.
The EVOM™ Auto is tailored to examine the physiological properties of critical barrier tissues like the blood-brain barrier, gastrointestinal tract, lung, and skin, offering a swift and efficient platform for research spanning from basic studies to drug development.
With this enhancement, researchers can now conduct automated TEER measurements using the EVOM™ Auto in both 24 and 96 well plate formats. The 24-well plates are often employed in 3D tissue models and cell therapies, making the EVOM™ Auto an invaluable tool for swiftly and non-invasively assessing barrier integrity and cell confluence
