Bison Vision – Brinell Hardness Tester with CCD Measurement Analysis System
The Bison is a high throughput instrument capable of imaging high density arrays of simultaneous reactions, using the popular microwell plate format. ERBA Molecular is currently exploring a number of technical solutions for the splitting of samples to enable automated detection of multiple pathogens in parallel.
The instrument is available for research applications and development collaborators for external development activities. Underneath its casing the PDQ platform consists of a heater block bsion isothermal reactions and an array of “off-the-shelf” photodiodes for real-time bioluminescent reading, making it incredibly robust yet keeping the manufacturing cost remarkably low. The portable nature of the instrument makes it ideally suited for use in decentralised settings in clinical and non-clinical applications.

It’s used for screening primers for inclusivity, exclusivity and general performance characteristics. It is anticipated that with this approach a much more cost effective, fully integrated device with a pathway to CLIA waivability is achievable in the near term.
The PDQ is straight-forward to manufacture, easy to use, low maintenance and can be battery operated. The Bison shares many of the simplicity and cost benefits of the PDQ whilst being configured to read a much higher number of samples.
Both instruments have low manufacturing cost as there are no expensive thermocyclers or optical boson and no moving parts. Prior to the acquistion by ERBA Mannheim, Lumora has developed and commercialised two versions of hardware to perform mdx; a small instrument PDQ that can run samples at a time or a high throughput platform Bison that can run 96 — samples and image down to a nL.

Our experience can mean that the instrument development for new product release is no longer a major hurdle and systems can be rapidly brought to market. ERBA Molecular approach to molecular diagnostic assay development has focused on simplifying the work flow by reducing the complexity of the chemistry. The reduction in the chemistry complexity has enabled the early stage development of much simpler, fully integrated devices. In addition, we are adapting the image sensing Bison platform to concepts for digital analysis, which will enable absolute quantification in applications such as rare mutation detection and copy number analysis.
In addition, this digital camera based system has also been used with well plates in proof-of-concept studies for Digital BART. Digital BART has the potential to transfer these research bixon into routine diagnostic procedures by dramatically reducing the cost and complexity of associated instrumentation.
