Fluidic Analytics Showcases Protein Interaction Technology
Fluidic Analytics Ltd will attend a number of events this Autumn to showcase its technology for studying protein interactions. At each event across Europe, the team will present data from its pre-release instrument – the Fluidity One-W – which allows researchers to assess on-target protein interactions in solution and even in crude biological backgrounds.
The Fluidity One-W opens up the possibilities for detailed protein analysis in near-native states and natural environments, providing researchers with accurate and complete protein interaction data. Its ability to generate absolute size measurements through the proprietary method of microfluidic diffusional sizing (MDS) ensures confidence in the data collected and allows users to control for off-target binding and false-positive measurements. Detailed protein interaction information including binding kinetics, KD calculations and stoichiometries can be generated, allowing researchers to gain the best insight into a protein’s behavior in the cell. The Fluidity One-W is also easy-to-use, operating on a pipette, plug and play basis with minimal sample preparation to reduce time and costs and allow analysis at the earliest possible stage.
Dr Sean Devenish, Head of R&D at Fluidic Analytics commented: “We’re really looking forward to presenting new data and showcasing our newest instrument, the Fluidity One-W, ahead of its release later in the year. It’s a really exciting platform, that has a whole range of applications from neurobiology and structural biology to drug discovery. With its unique capabilities in-solution, the Fluidity One-W is the best option for analyzing difficult-to-study proteins like amyloid fibrils and large complexes, and so having one in the laboratory can really expand the types of proteins and systems that can be investigated.”
