Application Notes

Application Note 1001
  • Improving Triolein Measurement Accuracy in Mass Spectrometry Assays
    This application note describes the use of the HENDRIX SM100 ultrasonic fluid processor to release Triolein from the cell membrane bilayer and the RapidFire® technology to accurately detect native molecules. The combination showed significant improvements in MS assays triolein measurement accuracy.

Application Note 1002
  • High-Quality Acoustic Instruments Compound Screening Duet
    This application note summarizes the high-quality compound screening process roadmap combining the use of HENDRIX SM100 ultrasonic fluid processor and high-throughput acoustic dispensers. HENDRIX SM100 protocol settings for common acoustic-friendly compound storage plate types are also available in this note.


DNA Shearing
  • High-Throughput Ultrasonic DNA Shearing for NGS Sample Preparation
    This poster shows DNA and Chromatin fragmentation data generated by the Microsonics ST300 system™.

  • A Duet of NGS Sample Preparation Techniques
    The Microsonics ST300™ system and the Fragment Analyzer™ system provide a high-throughput NGS sample preparation solution. This powerful duet avoids the excessive use of expensive consumables , offers great flexibility and provides considerably higher throughput than others.

  • Compound solubilization
    • Improve the integrity of your fragment library for fragment-based drug discovery
      The data presented in this poster shows that the HENDRIX SM100 ultrasonic fluid processor can be used to recover precipitated fragment samples back into solution, and increase the sample concentration and thereby improve the accuracy of the screening results.

    • Ultrasonic mixing & solubilization data
      This study performed by AstraZeneca shows that the HENDRIX SM100 ultrasonic fluid processor improves compound solubility and assay reproducibility. The HENDRIX increases compound potency in lead profiling and the total number of active compounds identified. These advantages led to the conclusion of implementing the HENDRIX SM100 in Compound Management and HTS at AstraZeneca.
