World Precision Instruments Expands EVOM™ Auto With Both 24 And 96 Multiwell Plate Capability, Combining Transepithelial Electrical Resistance (TEER) Measurements With A High Throughput Format For Drug Discovery

Sarasota, FL /PRNewswire/ - World Precision Instruments (WPI) is excited to expand the capability of the EVOM™ Auto, now offering both 24 and 96 multiwell capacity in one single platform. The EVOM™ Auto enables rapid and reproducible measurements of Transepithelial Electrical Resistance (TEER), a well-established, non-invasive and widely accepted method of evaluating epithelial and endothelial cells and tissues.

WPI's EVOM™ Auto combines TEER technology, with high throughput screening capabilities, resulting in automated measurements of tissue and monolayer barrier integrity, cell permeability, and cell confluency. The EVOM™ Auto is designed to readout the critical physiology of barrier tissues such as the blood-brain barrier, the gastrointestinal tract, the lung, and the skin, providing a fast and efficient platform for studies from basic research through drug development.

"As we continue to enhance our TEER product offerings, we are excited to offer the additional capability to perform automated TEER measurements on the EVOM™ Auto in both 24 and 96 well plate formats. 24-well plates are commonly used for 3D tissue models and cell therapies, and EVOM™ Auto enables our customers to perform rapid, non-invasive measurements of barrier integrity and cell confluence," noted Dr. Adrienne Watson, Chief Scientific Officer of WPI.

Dr. Watson continued, "Our EVOM™ Auto is a foundational tool in high-throughput laboratories, and as a result, we will continue to invest in enhancing this platform with innovative technologies to accelerate drug development."

Additional features of the EVOM™ include compatibility with all market leading 24 and 96 multiwell cell culture plates, electrode disinfection capability during measurement, wireless device control, and the ability to fit inside a sterile cell culture hood or an incubator.

WPI will be at AAPS
