Cost Comparisons

HTD96b consumable assay cost per well 8x-25x less than competitors

Devices for equilibrium dialysis fall into two distinct categories: disposable and reusable. Among currently available commercial devices, disposable units process 96 samples simultaneously, while reusable devices process 20 samples simultaneously. In contrast, the HTD 96b is a reusable device that allows simultaneous processing of 96 samples, a unique combination.

A comparison of assay costs underscores the advantages of the HTD 96b system. All cost comparisons are based on publicly available list prices for devices and consumable supplies.

Figure 1 illustrates the efficiency of the HTDialysis 96b system compared with both disposable and reusable models expressed as the number of assays that can be performed for a $1000 expenditure on consumables. Expressed more directly in the table below is the cost per well of each system.

Cost Per Well

Number of Disposable assays

Figure 2 shows the number of 96-well disposable units (Harvard Biosciences or Pierce RED system), required to completely amortize the capital cost of a HTD 96b. All subsequent assays using the HTD 96b realize the substantial cost per assay savings shown in Figure 1 above. The ease of use and automation compatibility of the HTD 96b are additional advantages beyond the favorable consumable costs.
