Depixus Takes Home SLAS Ignite Award for Revolutionary MAGNA One Technology

Depixus, a pioneering company in the field of interactomics, has received the prestigious Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) Ignite Award at the society’s annual International Conference and Exhibition in Boston, MA. This accolade was given in recognition of their groundbreaking MAGNA™ technology, which was also unveiled at the conference alongside the launch of Depixus’ MAGNA One™ instrument.

The Ignite Award is presented to companies that are revolutionizing the life sciences with their innovative technologies. To be considered for this award, companies were evaluated on various criteria including excellence in innovation, marketing presence, impact, funding, and balanced leadership. Out of 16 participating companies, Depixus was one of the eight finalists chosen for the Ignite Award.

MAGNA One is based on magnetic force spectroscopy and enables high-throughput analysis of dynamic biomolecular interactions. It is the first technology to offer real-time measurements from thousands of individual molecules simultaneously, making it particularly useful for exploring challenging targets such as RNA and protein-protein interactions. The technology provides valuable insights into disease mechanisms and accelerates the development of novel therapeutics.

Depixus CEO Gordon Hamilton expressed his excitement about winning the Ignite Award, emphasizing the company’s innovative technology and its potential to impact the understanding and treatment of diseases where new treatments are urgently needed. Chief Commercial Officer Steve Klose added that this award coincides with the launch of their technology access program and commercial rollout of MAGNA One, marking a significant moment for the company.
