pBDi

The Bruker pBDi is a portable detection platform for on-site identification of biothreat agents. Developed for use by non-scientific personnel, the pBDi can be operated while working in protective equipment under extreme conditions. Fully portable and operating from internal batteries, pBDi can be used in the hot zone.The pBDi employs a electrochemical biochip technology for multiplex ELISA-based detection of biothreat agents. The pBDi builds on the technology of the Bruker portable Toxin Detector and offers new features such as integration with a mobile suitcase, battery operation, Bluetooth connection to a ruggedized tablet PC and assays for bacteria, viruses and toxins identification.
