Avacta selects Trinean’s DropSense96® for purified protein QC

Trinean announced that its DropSense96® droplet reader has been chosen by Avacta for High Throughput analysis of their purified Affimer proteins.

Avacta has established facilities capable of expressing and purifying 15,000 of their proprietary Affimer proteins every 6 weeks. These affinity reagents, which can be thought of as artificial antibodies, will be incorporated into very high complexity protein microarrays designed to revolutionize the discovery and validation of disease biomarkers. “The high complexity of the protein arrays means that the Affimers have to be produced to very high standards of purity and yield." said Paul Ko Ferrigno, Head of Discovery Technology at Avacta, "Our challenge is that quality control becomes a rate-limiting step when working at this high throughput .We currently have plates of purified Affimers stacked waiting for analysis by traditional methods. Once the Trinean DropSense96® is introduced into the workflow, quality control will become as automated as the purification protocols, allowing the development team to go from bacterial colony to purified protein of known concentration within 2 days, processing one thousand proteins at a time."

Philippe Stas, CEO of Trinean, added: "The decision by Avacta to use our DropSense96® droplet reader further validates our instruments to deliver high quality UV/Vis spectral absorbance data. The DropSense96® was designed to meet the requirements of protein purification labs by combining speed and minimal sample usage. Our unmatched large measurement range allows quantification of undiluted protein samples in real-time thereby significantly shortening the purification process.

Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications
The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Individuals' Medical Histories Predicted by their Noncoding Genomes
Researchers have found that analyzing mutations in regions of the genome that control genes can predict medical conditions such as hypertension, narcolepsy and heart problems.
'Molecular Movie' Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments
An international team of scientists led by the University of Liverpool has produced a 'structural movie' revealing the step-by-step creation of an important naturally occurring chemical in the body that plays a role in some cancers.
Custom Tuning Knobs to Turn Off Any Gene
Factory managers can improve productivity by telling workers to speed up, slow down or stop doing tangential tasks while assembling widgets. Unfortunately for synthetic biologists attempting to produce pharmaceuticals, microbes don’t respond to direction like human personnel.
Unique Mechanism for a High-Risk Leukemia
Researchers uncovered the aberrant mechanism underlying a notoriously treatment-resistant acute lymphoblastic leukemia subtype; findings offer lessons for understanding all cancers.
