Tempe-based biotechnology company Biosensing Instrument said its BI-4500 received the prestigious R&D 100 Award from R&D Magazine for innovative new products at the 54th annual R&D 100 Awards and Technology Conference earlier this month in Washington, D.C.
The BI-4500 is a surface plasmon resonance system used in life science research to study the interactions between molecules in real time without requiring fluorescent labels. The systems measure biomolecular kinetics, molecular adsorption and similar molecular features.
“We are thrilled with this honor,” Dr. Tianwei Jing, president of BI and three-time R&D 100 winner, said. “We have a long track record of introducing novel technology to the market, and this award is a testimony of BI’s commitment to advance biosensing research.”
The R&D 100 Awards celebrate significant technology inventions each year. The R&D Top 100 list began in 1963 and since its inception, has recognized various products such as analytical test equipment, biomedical products, software and biotechnology.
