Bond-x is a flexible immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining system with walk-away capabilities. Bond-max adds onboard dewaxing and epitope retrieval, as well as IHC and in situ hybridization (ISH).
Bond's unique covertile technology enables small volumes of reagent (as little as 100 µL per slide) to be uniformly applied over the tissue sections on a slide.
Vacuum-controlled flow ensures even dispersal, providing high-quality, reproducible staining.
Optimized reagents, including the Bond Polymer Detection System and Novocastra brand primary antibodies, further enhance staining quality.
Bond is the first staining system to offer continuous batch processing , allowing independent start and finish times for each batch of 10 slides as well as different protocols on each of the 30 slides.
This facilitates staggered workflow demands and increases laboratory productivity.
Bond's state-of-the-art reagent tracking and management features onboard liquid level sensing .
This ensures accurate monitoring of reagent inventory and usage, and provides highly optimized reagent dispensing.
Reagent volumes and waste levels are automatically communicated to the operator.
The Bond system's advanced slide imaging system enables customers to use human-readable characters on their slide labels; it uses OCR technology and provides functionality and flexibility not achievable with bar coding technology.
Bond is modular ; each system has a host computer that can control up to five Bond-x or Bond-max instruments.
Each instrument having a 30-slide capacity, a complete Bond system is capable of processing 150 slides.
The Bond system can include a combination of Bond-x and Bond-max instruments, and because of its modularity can grow with you as your business grows.
