FortéBio Octet RED96e

FortéBio Octet RED96e

High sensitivity 8-channel BLI system with unmatched versatility and flexibility for rapid assay development

Analyse samples in crude matrix 

The fluidics-free Dip and Read technology with samples in a 96-well plate format, combined with ready-to-use biosensors allows for high flexibility in sample type.

Sensitivity for small molecule analysis

The Octet RED96e system enables the measurement of interactions between small molecules down to 150 Da in size, and their larger binding partners to determine accurate kinetics rates.

High performance quantitation and binding kinetics 

Quantitate up to 96 samples in 32 minutes and perform kinetic screens of up to 64 samples in 1.5 hrs.

GxP compliant

The Octet RED96e system has been developed to operate reliably in a regulated environment. FortéBio offers 21 CFR Part 11 software and a full line of GxP compliance products.


The versatile 8-channel Octet RED96e system provides flexibility for rapid assay development. Analysis can be done using a single channel or up to eight channels, enabling flexibility in sample throughput based on need. The Octet RED96e offers superior sensitivity over the QKe, possessing 8 spectrometers, each assigned to a dedicated channel. 

High-quality kinetic screening and affinity characterisation

As with all FortéBio BLI systems, the Octet RED96e monitors binding events in real time to calculate on rates (ka), off rates (kd), and affinity constants (KD).

Eight parallel, independent channels for maximum speed and flexibility

Each channel is independent of the others, allowing for analysis of different sample types simultaneously. Analysis can be done using a single channel or up to eight channels.

High sensitivity and versatility to detect a wide range of molecules

The high sensitivity Octet RED96e system detects a diverse range of biomolecules from molecules as small as 150 Da, to proteins to mammalian cells.

Sample plate cooling for temperature sensitive proteins

The Octet RED96e operates with a wide range in temperature (15 – 40 °C). An optional microplate evaporation cover minimises sample loss, enabling up to 12 hours of unattended run time.

Perfectly suited to operate in GxP-regulated environments

ForteBio offers an optional 21 CFR Part 11 software for the Octet RED96e system. In addition, installation and qualification (IQOQ) and performance qualification (PQ) kits are available for GxP users.

Fluidics-free Dip and Read format reduces assay time and maintenance cost

As with all FortéBio BLI systems, the Octet RED96e utilises FortéBio’s Dip and Read technology, with biosensors dipping into samples in a 96-well plate format. With no fluidics involved, all Octet systems including the RED96e are highly robust.
