Novel Protein Precipitation Method for Whole Blood Using Automated Tip-on-Tip Technology

Purpose Introduce innovative automated multi-purpose INTip filtration technologyDemonstrate the feasibility of a novel and rapid protein precipitation method, often referred to as “protein crash”.This method can be extended to many areas of science, including drug discovery, metabolomics, and clinical trial studies.This automated procedure could be applied to applications such as gelatin removal from drug formulations or processing cell lysates. All sample preparation was performed on a Hamilton NIMBUS96 platform.  This study shows that efficient protein precipitation using an automated liquid handler [...]

Automated Extraction of Catecholamines and Metanephrines in Urine

Introduction: The catecholamines are bioamines that play an integral role as neurotransmitters in the central and peripheral nervous system. Screening for catecholamines and their O-methylated metabolites is a widely accepted approach for diagnosis of catecholamine-secreting tumors. Generally, these tumors are benign, but the potent effects on the cardiovascular system caused by excess catecholamines can have potentially fatal outcomes. Correct, timely diagnosis is crucial. Unlike plasma, it is recommended that both metanephrines and catecholamines be measured in urine. Urine analysis is [...]

MSACL 2019

DPX Technologies at MSACL We are excited to showcase our new Tip-on-Tip Technology at the MSACL conference this year. About Tip-on-Tip Technology Tip-on-Tip (ToT) is a patent pending technology that was designed to promote the simplification and automation of complex sample preparation. The ToT technology has two main methodologies: ToT Filtration and ToT SPE. This technology provides a fast, automated INTip solution for a variety of applications. ToT Filtration ToT Filtration combines a conductive wide bore top tip with a [...]
