Lunaphore expands flexible spatial biology offering with the launch of secondary antibodies for COMET™

LAUSANNE, Switzerland – March 7, 2023 – 4:00 pm (CET)Lunaphore, a Swiss life sciences company developing technology to enable spatial biology in every laboratory, announced today the launch of its secondary antibodies portfolio. Lunaphore provides the necessary components to unlock the full potential of spatial biology, from instrumentation to secondary antibodies for detection as well as other required reagents.

Lunaphore’s COMET™ is the only fully automated, high-throughput, hyperplex platform with superior tissue profiling capabilities, facilitating the analysis of 40 different spatial markers per run on a tissue slide. With the introduction of the secondary antibodies portfolio, the company continues to empower researchers to perform successful spatial biology experiments by providing ready-to-use secondary antibodies on the COMET™ platform, minimizing variability.

Lunaphore secondary antibodies have been conjugated to Alexa Fluor™ Plus, comprising key features to yield optimal staining and image quality on COMET™. The Lunaphore pre-adsorbed antibodies ensure low species cross-reactivity. They undergo stringent quality control measures to provide lot-to-lot consistency and integrate into existing experiments with ease to allow high-quality and reproducible results.

“It is critical to listen to our customers: we strive to enhance our product offering and versatile capabilities to ensure that new services integrate seamlessly into existing workflows while providing the highest level of confidence,” said Déborah Heintze, Chief Marketing Officer at Lunaphore. “The new secondary antibody kits have been extensively tested to continue delivering the strong stainings and powerful insights that our customers have come to expect. As we expand Lunaphore’s portfolio, we aim to be a vital partner and provider of the best instruments, secondary antibodies, and more so researchers can focus on addressing pressing scientific questions.”
