- Flexible: design an assay with up to 16 arrays per slide or up to 96 wells in a microplate to add powerful new dimensions to your assays
- Fast: 96 well plate imaged in less than ten minutes, with full image processing for all 96 samples achieved in less than 20 minutes – significantly faster than competitive fluorescence-based systems
- Friendly: easy to use, stand-alone system with integrated PC interface; compatible with liquid handling instrumentation
The Vidia Microarray Imaging System is an easy-to-use, fluorescence-based imaging system for multiplexed assays. Vidia is compatible with both 96-well plates and standard slides, making it one of the most versatile microarray imaging system on the market! Only one other microarray scanner can analyze both plates and slides, but it costs 2x as much as Vidia. As a true 2D imaging system, and not a standard rastering instrument, it is also much faster than microarray scanners.

Multiplexing immunoassays immediately saves valuable time, reagents and samples. With an entire assay (array) in each well of a 96-well plate or multi-well slide, much less coating material is required per assay compared to standard ELISA. Read dozens of data points and test a multitude of markers simultaneously to increase throughput in your lab.
Vidia is built to ensure reproducible results and low maintenance operation in a compact design. High-power LEDs are utilized for excitation of fluorescent dyes and a sensitive CCD camera provides detection for this 2-channel green/red (e.g. Cy3/Cy5) imaging system. No moving parts in the optical system along with our user-friendly software ensure each spot is found and analyzed properly, assay after assay.
