Gentel Biosciences started sales this week of its APiX Disease Profiling Kit, a single-capture antibody array and detection kit that the company said can be used for profiling hundreds of disease-related proteins across multiple disease states.

The kit works with the Gentel Proteomics Multi-System and AthenaQuant software suite and can be used for studying tumor-associated antigens, comparing proteomic and transcriptomic data, and performing target identification and validation, the company said.


GE Healthcare launched this week its Biacore T200 system for the measurement of kinetic, affinity, concentration, specificity, and thermodynamic interaction data for the characterization of biomolecular interactions.

The system allows for guided workflows and the analysis of up to 384 samples in unattended runs. It also offers calibration-free concentration analysis that enables measurement of active protein concentrations whether or not a standard is available, the company said.
