Singulex Erenna® Immunoassay Instrument
Singulex® Erenna® Instrument with SMC™ technology quantifies low-abundance biomarkers, on the bench top.
The Erenna® Immunoassay system, originally developed by Singulex®, Inc., accurately, precisely and reliably quantifies low-abundance biomarkers at femtogram/mL concentrations. Ultrasensitive Single Molecule Counting (SMC™) technology enables better science by providing better sensitivity.

Scientists use the Erenna® Immunoassay System when they need:
  • Quantification of analyte concentration differences, especially at ultrasensitive levels.
  • Data for biomarkers that were previously undetectable or unquantifiable with traditional immunoassay formats.
  • Unparalleled precision and accuracy, with lower sample volumes and lower analyte concentrations.
  • A method to rapidly develop their own assays with their proprietary antibodies and targets.
  • An enthusiastic partner who will work with them to build assays to suit their discovery needs.
The Erenna® Immunoassay System includes fully integrated benchtop analytical instrumentation with dedicated software for automated data analysis.

SMC™ Immunoassay Kits & Reagents

Singulex Erenna® Immunoassay Kits
SMC™ Immunoassay Kits combine a familiar immunoassay workflow, with a 96-well plate option, with Single Molecule Counting technology
SMC™ Immunoassay Kits using Single Molecule Counting (SMC™) technology (developed by Singulex, Inc.) enable you to reach the highest levels of sensitivity possible in an immunoassay format. SMC™ kits contain all reagents required to perform assays on the Erenna® Immunoassay System. These assays take advantage of a standard immunoassay workflow and may be configured with a proprietary paramagnetic microparticle solid phase capture for ultrasensitive biomarker quantification, or in a standard plate format when extreme sensitivity is not required.

Assay protocols are similar to existing sandwich ELISA methods with two key differences:
  1. Elution buffer disrupts the sandwich, separating the labeled detection antibody for quantification.
  2. SMC™ Immunoassay System detects analytes using Single Molecule Counting (SMC™) technology.
The workflow similarities to a standard ELISA means that a laboratory can convert to SMC™ technology with relative ease. Studies have been performed to demonstrate the ease of conversion from a traditional ELISA to SMC™ immunoassay and the resultant impacts on assay performance, sample requirements, and cost.
