Biacore launches new generation system for protein interaction analysis

17.02.2005


Unmatched performance of Biacore T100 supports critical decision-making from research through to manufacturing and QC



Uppsala, Sweden, February 7, 2005. Biacore International AB (Biacore) (SSE: BCOR) today announced the launch of Biacore T100, a new generation system for protein interaction analysis.

Biacore T100 provides comprehensive information about how proteins interact with other molecules. The unique information generated by Biacore T100 is invaluable for many applications such as elucidation of disease pathways, definition of therapeutic targets, selection of drug candidates and decisions on the safety of a protein therapeutic.


Biacore T100 sets the performance standard for protein interaction analysis, from research through drug discovery and development to manufacturing and QC, providing the highest quality data to support decisions that ensure productive research and development. From a single instrument, scientists can determine affinity and rate constants, binding specificity, concentration and thermodynamic parameters. In this way, applications as time-consuming as antibody characterization, which could take weeks by conventional methods, can be completed in days with Biacore T100. Software wizards assist with the analysis of every interaction parameter, making the system straightforward to use and suitable for both novice and experienced users.

Initially acknowledged as essential in basic research, the unique data provided by Biacore systems are now widely used by biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to make well-informed decisions at critical stages throughout the development and manufacture of novel therapeutics. To fulfill stringent regulatory requirements, Biacore T100 has been designed with a high level of in-built GLP/GMP/GCP support and 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. An optional GxP support package will save users significant time during validation.

Erik Walldén, Biacore’s President and CEO commented:

“Biacore T100 is our new flagship system, the fruit of our skills and expertise gained through 15 years of experience since we introduced real time protein interaction analysis into the life science market. We are confident that both existing and new Biacore users will benefit from the system’s unmatched performance and ease-of-use. Biacore T100 offers even greater opportunities for scientists to benefit from real time protein interaction analysis wherever they work in the life sciences.“

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
