The power of real-time kinetic binding data is back in your hands with AGILE R100, a novel orthogonal assay for small molecule and fragment-based drug discovery. Based on breakthrough Field Effect Biosensing (FEB) technology, AGILE R100 detects small molecules and fragments with no lower size limit, ≤10% DMSO using as little as 10 µL, giving you control over the complete characterization of your biomolecules.

Accelerate your research with a novel approach for hit validation and lead optimization!

Graphene biosensor AGILE R100 chip

Biosensor Chips


With breakthrough all-electronic graphene-based technology, AGILE R100 Biosensor Chips help you fully characterize and explore your biomolecules to make better decisions earlier. The surface of the biosensor chip is made of graphene, platinum, and glass – biologically inert materials that will not react with your experiment.

Each biosensor chip is built with graphene transistors which provide a minimum of 10 replicate data points per measurement for strong internal reproducibility and technical control. Depending on the stability of the immobilized molecule, each chip can be regenerated up to 10 times, providing 10 measurements a chip.



The AGILE R100 reader (not shown) houses the majority of the system’s electronic components. The cartridge holds the biosensor chip and biological materials. It is easy to clean, and an included clear cover reduces liquid evaporation.

The Direct Connect cartridge connects directly to the AGILE R100 reader for compact use and can be separated from the reader post-experiment for easy decontamination with standard protocols.

The Cable Connect cartridge attaches to the reader via a one-meter-long high density cable. This enables additional use of the cartridge in a wide range of experimental settings (ex: with a temperature controlled incubator or in a biosafety cabinet) that may otherwise damage the reader. The Cable Connect cartridge is also easily decontaminated post-experiment with standard protocols.

Both cartridges are compatible with the AGILE reader. While one is included with the AGILE R100 system purchase, additional cartridges are available as accessories.

AGILE R100 training



We are committed to helping you capture the best data possible with your AGILE R100 platform. Highly-trained and qualified Field Applications Scientists partner with you at your lab or facility to train any size party on how to use AGILE R100 to generate high-quality kinetic binding and affinity data at your bench.

The agenda is customizable to your needs, and topics can include the basics of AGILE technology, assay development with AGILE R100, data acquisition and analysis software use, analysis interpretation, maintenance, cleaning, and troubleshooting.
