HTS Flux Assays
Aurora employs proprietary flux assay technology in which non-radioactive ions are used as tracers for specific ion channels and transporters. Tracer ions are loaded into either cells or extracellular solutions. High-throughput screens are offered on Aurora’s flux assay-based ICR 8000 and ICR12000 systems. Results obtained by our flux-based screens are comparable to results generated by the gold standard patch clamp.
