News Sep 23, 2008
GWC Technologies Inc. of Madison has announced an agreement with Cybeles Life Science under which Cybeles will distribute GWC’s label-free array systems in South East Asia. GWC’s products are used in proteomics analysis, drug discovery research and diagnostics development.
A key distinction of GWC’s analysis systems is their superior throughput and greater experimental rigor, which results from their flexible array format.
GWC selected Cybeles Life Sciences based on Cybeles’ successful experience distributing products and providing quality service in GWC’s target markets. Cybeles will now be able to offer GWC’s versatile label-free detection systems to researchers throughout Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, delivering powerful and affordable solutions for the most growing areas of life science research.
According to Georg Gottmann, CEO of Cybeles, “We are proud to have the responsibility for the GWC product line. It will enable Cybeles to expand its business into the protein analysis market, delivering urgently needed capabilities to our expanding base of life science and medical researchers.”
Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
