TGR BioSciences Expands Alpha SureFire® Ultra™ Multiplex for Phosphoprotein detection

TGR BioSciences is proud to announce the global availability of Alpha Terbium SureFire® Ultra™ (TBSU) assay kits. These new kits can be easily combined with existing AlphaLISA® SureFire Ultra (ALSU) kits to provide high throughput capability of multiplexed phosphoprotein detection in a homogeneous assay format.

The new kits combine PerkinElmer, Inc.’s highly sensitive and homogeneous Alpha (Amplified Luminescent Proximity Homogenous Assay) detection chemistry with TGR’s patented CaptSure™ Multiplex technology to allow the measurement of two phosphoprotein targets in each assay well in a mix-and-read format. The portfolio is available exclusively through PerkinElmer.

This powerful combination of technologies means scientists now have an enhanced flexibility in selection of measurement of two phosphoproteins, through the pick-and-pack combination of virtually any two phosphoprotein targets from the AlphaLISA SureFire Ultra (ALSU, Europium wavelength channel) and Terbium SureFire Ultra (TBSU, terbium wavelength channel) kit portfolios. Over 1000 permutations of dual assay target measurement are possible with these products.

Scientists can decide at the time of experiment which targets they want to measure in Multiplex format, and pick their ALSU and TBSU kit targets on hand, rather than having to preselect targets days or weeks earlier. This will provide greatly enhanced levels of scientific discovery, contributing to scientific research and drug discovery efforts around the world. The ground-breaking assay system therefore provides not only high sensitivity, speed and simplicity, but also the potential for user-defined target selection.

TGR plans to further expand the portfolio of assay kits in the future, providing an even greater discovery capability in research and development applications.
