Proteomics & Biochemistry Equipment
While genes are static, proteins may experience numerous modifications that change their shape and function. Post-translational adaptations, splice variants, and tertiary and quaternary structures have recently been found to play important roles in both normal physiological processes, as well as disease states. Additionally, protein biomarkers circulating in human serum are being studied to develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. These “large molecule” treatments offer alternatives to the more traditional medicines.
Below, Terra Universal has assembled a comprehensive collection of laboratory equipment to assist biochemists with their proteomics research, whether performing small-scale Western Blot experiments, high-throughput ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) screening, or result analysis using spectrophotometers. Protein preparations and homogenizations often require high-speed centrifuges and specialized homogenization equipment. Moreover, high-throughput screening is made more cost effective by automation of certain steps in the protocol, such as liquid handling.
