TGR BioSciences is proud to announce the global availability of Alpha SureFire® Ultra™ Multiplex, the first homogeneous multiplexing assay kit for phosphoprotein research. The new kits combine PerkinElmer Inc.’s highly sensitive and homogeneous Alpha (Amplified Luminescent Proximity Homogenous Assay) detection chemistry with TGR’s patented CaptSure™ technology to allow the measurement of two targets in each assay well in a mix-and-read format. The portfolio is available exclusively through PerkinElmer.
This powerful combination of technologies means double the data information per assay point, with the potential for users to mix-and-match target selection for the dual measurement from the expanding list of PerkinElmer’s AlphaLISA® SureFire® Ultra™ research kits.
The first products on-market are phospho/total assay kits. Measuring endogenous cellular phosphoproteins plus the total levels can now be achieved in all types of cellular extracts, including cultured cells, tissue lysates, and in samples containing high levels of antibodies. Such samples include those where antibody biotherapeutics are being evaluated for efficacy.
TGR plans to continue integrating PerkinElmer technology to expand the portfolio to measure two phosphoproteins at the same time. The ground-breaking assay system provides not only high sensitivity, speed and simplicity, but also the potential for user-defined target selection.
