Alfa Wasserman, Pressure Bio to Develop Sample-Prep Tools for Low-Abundance Proteins

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Alfa Wasserman Proteomic Technologies and Pressure BioSciences plan to jointly develop sample-preparation methodologies that can enrich low-abundance proteins and subcellular organelles, AWPT said today.
Under the agreement, AWPT will develop cell disruption techniques for sample preparation by using Pressure Bio’s pressure cycling technology, which uses hydrostatic pressure to control biomolecular reactions.
AWPT will use the sample-prep system on a broad range of cells and tissues in conjunction with its own Promatix technology, which fractionates organelles and sub-cellular moieties.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
