BioGenex has a rich history of innovation in the field of Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and In situ Hybridization (ISH) and a strong intellectual portfolio, consisting of several US and foreign-issued patents, which not only revolutionize precision medicine but also support the environment by promoting the use of Green non-toxic reagents and reducing toxic waste and include:

 

1. Deparaffinization – The EZ-DeWax deparaffinization solutions is a “one-step” product that simultaneously enables the removal of paraffin and allows rehydration of the tissue with a single reagent. In the past, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections were traditionally deparaffinized with highly toxic, noxious chemicals (i.e. xylene, equivalents).

2. Antigen retrieval - BioGenex is the inventor of Antigen Retrieval enabling technology. Antigen Retrieval is an effective way of unmasking antigenic epitopes on the surface of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections using microwave heating. BioGenex Antigen Retrieval Solutions have unique superheating properties that prevent damage to tissues, allow fast uniform heating and cooling which allow shorter protocols and are non-hazardous, non-flammable, odorless, safe and Eco-Friendly.

3. Reaction micro-chamber Technology - BioGenex key technology differentiators, including the eXACT temperature control and reaction micro-chamber, not only enable the automation of any slide-based assays (e.g: IHC, ISH, FISH, IF, IS-PCR, SS) but at the same time reduce use of micro-reagent consumption by up to 90% thus significantly reducing the use of toxic and cancer inducing chemicals such as Formamide and Methanol.

4. Automated Molecular Pathology Solutions - BioGenex Xmatrx staining systems contain liquid level sensor for accurate reagent dispensing and are the only staining systems in the market to allow wide reagent of dispensing volumes (10 μL to 900 μL) thus minimizing waste and reducing cost. These systems were designed to use BioGenex DeWax and Antigen Retrieval solutions for an Eco-friendly operation.

BioGenex is committed to continued innovation in Green technologies and to providing non-toxic, environmentally friendly high-quality products for the clinical diagnostics, life science research, and drug discovery markets.
