Quanterix announces the Simoa Success Grant Program in support of investigators based in the United States who are studying critical topics at the intersection of laboratory and clinical research in Infectious Diseases and Immunology to introduce them to the benefits of Simoa assays for protein biomarker analysis.
Simoa Success Sample Analysis Awards
One proposal will be awarded placement of a Quanterix SR-X Instrument, Simoa Microplate Washer, and Simoa Microplate Shaker, plus all necessary assay kits and consumables to run the proposed study. Awardee will be trained by a Quanterix FAS and supported through completion of the study. Awardee will have the option to keep the instrument on-site permanently with a commitment to purchasing at least $50K in consumables during the 12 month period following completion of the study.
Four proposals will be awarded a free of charge sample analysis at Quanterix headquarters to complete the proposed study. Awardee’s must send samples to Quanterix in Billerica, MA for analysis.

The awardee will be responsible for appropriate packing and shipping of samples to Quanterix within 1 month of award notification. Sample processing timelines will be communicated upon sample receipt.
Applicants are encouraged to present an experimental plan for sample testing utilizing current Simoa assays to measure specific analyte levels. Preferred projects will address a basic or pre-clinical question aimed at demonstrating the use of specific protein biomarkers in diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment efficacy studies for diseases engaging the immune system. Up to 130 samples may be submitted for analysis with one assay kit, or up to 65 samples may be submitted for analysis with two assay kits. Appendix A lists the assay kits available for this grant.
