Proteomic und Genomic Sciences

Complete Turnkey Lab Solutions.

Mass spectrometry is still hard. We don't care who tells you differently. With us, you don't have to go alone.

This is some of what we do

Science Lab

Complete Antibody Characterization Labs

Antibody based drugs are the present and future of medicine. Tired of paying to have your monoclonal antibodies and antibody drug conjugates characterized? Complete mAB and MAM packages are avialable in Q1 of 2020.

Science

Metabolomics Solutions

Nothing gets you closer to your phenotype than the metabolome. We can provide you with complete metabolomics labs packages. From the sample prep and QC through the data processing output. Prices start lower than what you're probably considering paying for a mass spectrometer.

Our beliefs

The traditional way to begin a journey into mass spectrometry is for a researcher to purchase the best instrument they can afford and to master it on their own. We've been there. However, we believe that if one lab takes this route and a second lab has 3 years of unlimited support, albeit with perhaps less cutting edge instruments -- the second lab will have more to show for it at the end of those 3 years. More publications. More successful grant applications. Happier customers. There is a learning curve to mass spectrometry. Let us accelerate your path to mastery.

Revealing the mechanisms behind mental disorders

We're thrilled to report our first collaboration with Johns Hopkins and PITT researchers was just released by the American Journal of Psychiatry. Validation of these biomarkers is currently underway.

BOLT -- Time to really take proteomics to the Cloud.

The files generated by today's proteomics instruments contain hundreds of times more data than they did just 10 or 20 years ago. OptysTech has developed BOLT -- the world's first friendly GUI based cloud based proteomics solution. We're helping them explore what BOLT can do to further medicine.

Further metrics to define data quality

Synchronous precursor selection (SPS) is a common method for quantitative labeled proteomics strategies such as TMT and iTRAQ. We have evaluated multiple studies employing this technique and directly assessed the accuracy of the SPS selection process.

Rapid Universal Methods for Determining Counterfeit....well...anything!

Could you determine whether a food or medical product has been counterfeited or contaminated without adding dramatic cost to the producer or customer? Yes. And rapid UHPLC high resolution mass spectrometry (with smart statistics) is the answer.  Our first BiorXIV preprint deals with the identification of counterfeit cannabis products. More is one the way.

Is this really the best a triple quadrupole can do?

The quadrupole mass analyzer has been in use for decades now. Has the technology reached an apex? Or....
