Irish Institute to be Reference Center for Denator Technology

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Gothenburg, Sweden-based Denator today said that the Proteome Research Centre at the UCD Conway Institute in Dublin will become a reference center for the firm's Stabilizor T1 system for stabilizing tissue samples.

The center will demonstrate the Stabilizor technology to other potential customers and gain early access to new products for stabilizing biological samples.

"Degradation begins seconds after sampling, thereby distorting the composition of the in vivo proteome," Michael Dunn, of the Proteome Research Centre, said in a statement. "Denator's rapid heat inactivation technology ensures complete elimination of enzymatic activity, thereby preserving the intact proteome."
