SQI Diagnostics Launches SQiDliteTM Multiplexing System at AAPS

SQiDlite improves efficiency of drug development, clinical trials and immunogenicity testing

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SQI Diagnostics Inc. (TSX-V: SQD), a life sciences and diagnostics company that develops and commercializes proprietary technologies and products for advanced microarray diagnostics, today announced that its global launch of its SQiDlite Multiplexing System will take place at the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Annual Meeting and Exposition taking place in Chicago IL, October 14-18. SQiDlite was developed to address the multiplex testing needs of clinical diagnostic laboratories, pharmaceutical drug development and Contract Research Organizations (CRO) performing bioanalytical and immunogenicity testing.

SQI Diagnostics has successfully cleared multiplex diagnostic assays to run on its other fully automated system, SQiDworks, a high-throughput microarray platform that can perform qualitative or quantitative testing for multiple biomarkers simultaneously.

The SQiDlite System offers laboratories of all sizes flexible, configurable, fully automated workflow solutions from dilutions through reporting to run protein and antibody multiplexed immunoassays. The SQiDlite integrates fluidics, washer, dryer, scanner and analyzing functions in a user-friendly bench-top footprint.

“We believe that the SQiDlite System is the perfect complement to our custom assay business in that it is a completely automated, small footprint bench-top platform with total load-and-go capabilities” said Claude Ricks, CEO of SQI Diagnostics. “With its user-friendly assay development software and LIS interface combined with its ability to significantly reduce cost and labour, SQiDlite is positioned to become a platform of choice for bioanalytics and immunogenicity labs around the world.”

SQI Diagnostics is an exhibitor at this year’s AAPS Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL. SQI science and commercial teams will be demonstrating the advanced functionality of this bench-top system and its software functionalities created to speed assay development in booth #1244.
