Adarza BioSystems to reveal ZIVA platform at AAI 2019

Adarza BioSystems to reveal ZIVA platform at AAI 2019:
a fully automated protein multiplex detection system

ST. LOUIS (May 2, 2019) — Biotech startup Adarza Biosystems, Inc. announced today that it will reveal its new protein multiplex instrument ZIVA at Immunology 2019, the annual meeting of the American Association of Immunologists (AAI) from May 9 – 13. Using a simple, time-saving workflow, the new automated system can simultaneously measure, analyze and report on up to 200 biomarkers.

Designed to be user-friendly for clinical researchers, academic medical centers, pharmaceutical companies, government scientists, and clinical labs, Adarza’s multiplexing ZIVA platform relies on its proprietary AIR™ technology to create and analyze arrays of biologically active molecules on miniature biosensors.

Unlike other technologies on the market, Adarza allows for

  • capability to measure from 1 to as many as 200 biomarkers from a single sample with results in less than 25 minutes for a complete 96-well plate
  • testing a variety of biological targets including proteins, autoantibodies, DNA/RNA, viruses and bacteria
  • greater flexibility with label-free assays which simplifies workflow and reduces reagent amount and costs
  • customization to quickly and effectively create new biosensors or add new content to existing biosensors

According to Adarza CEO Bryan Witherbee: “Adarza and its new ZIVA platform will make life easier for labs looking to reduce complexity while providing reliability and flexibility, whether they’re studying disease biomarkers or developing new drugs.”

In addition to offering a menu of cytokines and inflammation biomarkers at full commercial launch in 2020, ZIVA assay offerings will expand to include oncology, metabolic, cardiovascular, and other relevant clinical protein targets. Because of the flexibility of Adarza’s AIR™ technology, future offerings will enable researchers to detect biomarkers for autoimmune disease and allergy testing and help with development of personalized medicine.

Adarza will demonstrate ZIVA’s capabilities at Booth #730 at Immunology 2019, from May 9 – 13 at the San Diego Convention Center.
