BOND RX – Fully Automated Research Stainer

Find Breakthroughs Faster with the Freedom to Discover

Speed up your next big discovery. Use the BOND RX to confidently complete IHCISHFISH, CTC, multiplexing and other tests. Explore your ideas in a variety of ways via open reagents, open detection kits, and customizable protocols. The BOND RX provides an easy way for labs to fully automate tests and accelerate research programs.

  • Flexible Protocols Help Turn Theories Into Action

BOND RX lets researchers fully automate emerging technologies (including new molecular applications), customize all protocol segments and put theories into action.

  • Get Started Right Away

BOND RX makes it easy to run the unique reagents you’re working with and quickly automate innovative tests. In fact, you can simply pipette directly into open containers to get your antibody or probe onto the BOND RX.

  • Do More in Less Time with BOND RX

BOND RX helps research labs work more efficiently because it streamlines the test management process and makes it more flexible

  • Be Confident In Results With Proprietary Covertile Technology

The BOND Covertile protects tissue morphology and enables gentle and consistent reagent application, unlike competitors who may not use a Covertile at all, or not for all steps of the process.

  • Commercialize Your Discovery

You gain tools to customize protocols and streamline the transition to clinical. The shared core technology provides you with a clear path from research to clinical.

  • Fully Transparent Operations

Researchers are in full control with BOND RX. It provides the insight you need to have a complete understanding of each test. You can view reagent application, monitor protocol progress, receive comprehensive reports and more.
