DIGILAB'S PREP SERVICES USED FOR DIABETES RESEARCH.
"We evaluated reproducible sample preparation methodologies that could generate pools of candidate substrates for interrogation against any target protease of interest. Fractionation technology from Digilab Biovision GmbH, Hanover, Germany, was adopted for the isolation of low molecular weight peptides (typically <15,000 Da) from human plasma ultrafiltrate." N.A. Yates et al., Int. J. Mass Spectrom. (2006), doi:10.1016/j.ijms.2006.09.020
Digilab's sample preparation procedure offered provided a high enrichment of peptides in biological samples while eliminating high molecular weight protein content, thus enabling a uniquely high sensitivity for peptides in mass spectrometric analyses. Details of the service offer can be found on the website of Digilab "peptidomics.com" http://www.biovision-discovery.de/content/peptide_extraction_services.htm
David Giddings, president and CEO of Digilab, Inc. commented on the publication: "We are pleased our peptidomics sample prep services have proven so beneficial to drug discovery and development work. We look forward to extending these services to other Digilab life sciences industry".
As a global leader in molecular spectroscopy systems for almost 40 years, Digilab develops innovative and differentiated products and services for the life sciences research and in-vitro diagnostics markets. The company's pioneering work for the U.S. Government in 1969 led to the development, manufacture, sales and service of the first commercial Fourier-Transform InfraRed (FTIR) spectrometer. In the fall of 2004, Digilab sold its FTIR molecular spectroscopy assets to Varian Inc. Since then, the company has remained focused on novel and proprietary sample prep, bioinformatics, and spectroscopy detection/analysis devices that can be integrated into solutions for research and diagnostics applications.
In February 2006 Digilab acquired BioVisioN, AG in Hannover, Germany. Digilab is globally commercializing Digilab BioVisioN GmbH's patented Peptidomics(R) products and services and generating IP in this space. Digilab works with companies from the pharmaceutical and diagnostics sectors; analytical instrumentation hardware, software, and consumables suppliers; and academic institutions and government agencies. Digilab has had engagements to discover new biomarkers or drug targets with Astra Zeneca, Boehringer Ingelheim, Novartis, Novo Nordisk, Roche Diagnostics, Abbott Laboratories, Johnson and Johnson, and Solvay Pharmaceuticals.
