Customizable Phenotype MicroArray Microplates


Phenotype MicroArrays are designed to enable a comprehensive characterization of a cell’s physiological pathways for processing nutrients and handling stress.

They interrogate metabolic pathways and chemical sensitivity properties of cells, allowing you to discover ways to optimize, inhibit or simply compare cellular behavior. ​

​Tailor plates for your experiments by selecting from over 1,200 chemicals in Biolog’s library. Dive deeper into your research by designing custom microplates to ask the most relevant questions. Interrogate thousands of metabolic pathways based on your experimental needs.​

Compound Categories

Create Customized Phenotype MicroArray™ microplates for microbial, yeast, fungi, or mammalian cells by selecting compounds across 5 categories:

  • Bacterial metabolic
  • Bacterial inhibitor
  • Fungal inhibitor
  • Mammalian metabolic
  • Mammalian inhibitor
Checking for Growth with odin

See what’s happening in two ways.

Odin measures a reporter dye over time at one wavelength to measure NADH production, effectively reporting the rate of metabolic respiration.

It also measures optical density (OD) at a second wavelength to determine how quickly the microbes are dividing. Taken together, you get a full picture of how your microbes grow best over time.

If you’re focused on cell growth, just leave the dye out. Odin automatically compares cell growth and metabolic activity curves to provide you with a clearer picture of how fast or slow your microbes are growing.
