Gyros, George Washington University, Extend Collaboration on CD-Based Protein Quantitation

NEW YORK, Dec. 17 (GenomeWeb News) - Gyros of Uppsala, Sweden, said today it is extending a collaboration with George Washington University for evaluation of its Bioaffy protein quantitation technology.


Under the collaboration, Benjamin Dickens, an associate research professor at George Washington University will expand his studies on the Bioaffy system from mouse to human samples.


The system, which comprises CD microlaboratories for protein immunoasays, is designed for use of nanoliter-scale samples.


"Preliminary data was very promising and assay development appears to be fast and straightforward, so we are extending the study to human samples and focusing on the potential to monitor multiple analytes in a single sample," Dickens said in a statement.
