Unlocking the Protein World
Bringing low-cost high-throughput proteomics to your bench.
ProteoWise is founded by a seasoned team of scientists from the Strittmatter Lab at Yale University with a history of innovation.
We asked, “What will deliver the next wave in biotech?” High-throughput sequencing of DNA brought about the genomic revolution. But there’s been no similar advancement in proteomic technology, even though there’s more valuable information locked up in the world of proteins.
The gold standard for protein analysis remains 40-year old tech called “western blot”. It’s slow, cumbersome, expensive and only analyzes one or two proteins per sample. Every biology lab in the world uses it and everyone hates it.
We hate it too. That’s why we invented a proteomic technology that’s 50x faster, 50x smaller, 10x cheaper and gives 100x more data per sample. It will enable researchers to finally move beyond western blot and into easy, high-throughput bench-top proteomics.
Our Innovative Technology
The key to our tech is a nanoscale material we invented that’s being patented. We call it 3-Dimensional Nanoscale Protein Capture, or 3D-NPC.
By binding proteins covalently in a rigid nanoporous structure, 3D-NPC can be rapidly and repeatedly addressed with antibody probes. This solves all the problems of western blot while providing molecular weight and identity information that researchers need.
ProteoWise’s technology provides a unique combination of high information content, high throughput, and low cost - all while simplifying the western blot dramatically. This combination is what’s driving the genomic revolution and is needed for proteomics.
More data. Better data. Faster data. Cheaper data.
