Streamlined workflow

An overlooked time-consuming aspect of ELISpot was data analysis. With pre-calibrated settings and handy analysis tools, the time from data acquisition to ready-made analysis has been reduced to a minimum.


Precise spot counting

The software for Mabtech ASTOR is based on our patented RAWspot™ technology. The refined spot center localization lays the foundation for accurate spot counting. This can be confirmed, for example, by how linear the counting is in correlation to a cell dilution. Mabtech ASTOR provides linear spot counting with more than 3,000 spots per well, allowing correct spot processing for a multitude of setups including positive controls.


Read now, analyze later

Select default settings for quick data acquisition. Preferred spot size, plate layout, and image setups can be easily applied after plate reading, without affecting the original data. 
Find out how Mabtech ASTOR meets the requirements of CFR21 part 11 (FDA guidelines on electronic records in clinical investigations).
