We are happy to deliver and install the White FOx 1.0 Fiber Optic SPR microplate reader at the Fujirebio
Europe labs in Ghent, Belgium.
FO-SPR uses optical fibers for Surface Plasmon Resonance measurements. This unique technology
enables characterization of protein-protein interactions in complex samples with a simple dip and
read, eliminating the need for microfluidics. http://www.foxbiosystems.com/technology1.html
Paul Vandeponseele at Fujirebio Europe says that the unique combination of label free and fast
sensitive assays is a great tool for bio-assay development.
Congratulations to Paul, Mario Denoyette and their colleagues with their new lab tool. We wish you
success with your projects for developing new products. It’s our pleasure to work with this enthusiastic
About Fujirebio Europe N.V.: Fujirebio is a global leader in the field of IVD testing with more than 50
years’ experience in the conception, development, production and worldwide commercialization of
robust IVD products. These span the range from specialized testing to fully automated routine clinical

About FOx Biosystems: FOx Biosystems is a spin-off of the University of Leuven, located at the Bioville
campus in Diepenbeek (Hasselt) Belgium. FOx biosystems is specialized in Fiber Optic SPR sensing
offering accessible innovative biomolecular characterisation solutions.
Bernd Peeters recently obtained his PhD in Bioscience Engineering in the research group of Prof. Jeroen Lammertyn (KU Leuven), working on the FOx technology. His research focused on the search for innovative nucleic acid based strategies for FO-SPR biosensor design.
More specifically, he designed different FO-SPR biosensors, enabling detection of:
(i) celery DNA (important allergen which requires continuous tracing in the food industry).
(ii) mobile colistin resistance gene (indicating antimicrobial resistance of certain bacteria, relevant in health care and livestock applications).

Congratulations, Bernd Peeters, for obtaining your PhD!
