Create you own custom heliX® biochip to meet your experimental needs using the new heliX® MIX&RUN app.
Free app that will make your work in the lab easier.
The heliX® MIX&RUN app determines the volumes of your ligand(s) and Adapter-dye strands in order to create a biochip surface with your desired ligand densities.
The heliX® Adapter Biochip features 2 spots (4 signals) with 2 different anchor sequences for DNA-encoded addressing:
Spot 1: measurement spot in red and green
Spot 2: reference/measurement spot in red and green
Ligand strands and Adapter strands can be easily exchanged by hybridization to surface-immobilized Anchor strands.
Get ready for your experiment in five easy steps.

Adjusting different ligand densities on a heliX® Adapter Chip is easier than preparing a decent Vodka Martini:
- Mix ligand and adapter strands at the desired ratio.
- Shake or stir, it doesn’t really matter. Place vial in autosampler.
As the heliX® instrument pumps the hybridization solution across the sensor, the pre-defined stoichiometry adjusts on the surface. Every time.
