Peakadilly receives multiple patents for breakthrough Protein biomarker discovery and identification technologies.
The patent offices of the United States of America and Canada have granted patents for Peakadillys core technology, Cofradic. Cofradic, initially developed at the University of Ghent, Belgium, allows the identification and quantification of proteins in any biological sample and represents the most important component of the companys Masstermind biomarker discovery engine. Peakadilly has already received patents for the technology in Europe.
Peakadilly’s proprietary proteomics technologies allow fast, automated and highly flexible and sensitive qualitative and quantitative proteomics without using gels and without the use of an affinity tag. The technology comprises a suite of chemistries and chromatographic methods to reduce the natural complexity of any protein mixture. Together with a novel serum depletion technology and state-of-the art mass spectrometry, Peakadillys Masstermind platform allows to analyse huge sets of proteins and posttranslational modified proteins in clinical samples like blood or sputum, offering unrivalled sensitivities and high content data unseen with genomics & transcriptomics. Using software tools developed in-house, the quantitative comparison of hundreds of samples is possible, making the technology suited for biomarker discovery within clinical trials. In collaboration with a big pharma company, the technology is currently being applied to distinguish responders from non-responders in a specific therapeutic regimen.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
