NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Australian government-run research agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Livestock Industries, has become an early access user of Denator's tissue stabilization platform and is using the technology in its animal proteomics research programs.
The Australian research agency has integrated the Stabilizor T1 system into its proteomics workflows, and it will have access to new products for stabilizing biological samples, according to the Swedish firm.
The Stabilizor platform is used to stabilize tissue samples from the moment of sampling, and it eliminates the activity of degradative enzymes and does not require additives, Denator said.
"CSIRO conducts a number of proteomics research projects, complementing our genomic efforts to benefit Australia's livestock industry and improve human health," CSIRO Senior Research Scientist Michelle Colgrave said in a statement. "Our evaluation of this novel stabilization device, Stabilizor T1, has demonstrated its utility in maintaining sample integrity in frozen hypothalamic tissue."
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
