Simoa® Homebrew Custom Assay Development

Expand the limits of biomarker exploration with custom Simoa homebrew assays

Homebrew is Quanterix's unique custom assay development solution that leverages the power of ultrasensitive Simoa technology to address specific research applications of interest. Utilizing a lab's own antibodies, custom assays can be developed in the most efficient manner possible. Homebrew kit components and instructions have been carefully optimized and validated to maximize ease-of-use and success developing assays capable of achieving a level of sensitivity well beyond conventional immunoassays.

Key Features

High-performing assays designed to your specifications

Simoa Accelerator Laboratory


Study your analyte of choice using your own antibodies and customized assay protocols. Homebrew kits are available on both our bead and planar platforms, allowing you to run assays on the HD-1, HD-X, SR-X or SP-X instruments you already own. Don't have an instrument? Our Accelerator Laboratory has you covered! 

NF-Light Assay


Homebrew assays rely on the ultrasensitive power of Simoa technology. In general, a 2-3 log improvement in sensitivity can be expected for bead-based custom assays compared to conventional ELISAs, and homebrew performance enhancements can be achieved within 2-3 days.

Simoa Homebrew Assays


Interested in measuring more than one target simultaneously? Homebrew assays on our bead platform can be customized to detect up to 4 analytes in a single sample. 

Achieve Breakthroughs from Discovery to Diagnostics
