The kit also enables high quality data to be generated from small sample volumes, requiring 10 times less sample compared to ELISA. Additionally, minimal matrix interference reduces the need for dilution, increasing sensitivity and accuracy.
“We’re excited to introduce the Gyrolab p24 Kit to our growing portfolio of ready-to-use kits, which are rapidly being adopted by researchers for the automated analysis of bioprocess samples," commented Dan Calvo, CEO and president, Gyros Protein Technologies. "Our customers in the cell and gene therapy market value the workflow efficiency enabled by Gyrolab solutions and we look forward to further supporting their efforts to develop the breakthrough therapies they are producing.”
“Efficient bioprocessing, bioanalytical development, and manufacture of lentivirus vectors is vital for the advancing field of cell and gene therapy, which is creating an array of potential new treatment options for patients," said Kyriacos Mitrophanous PhD, CSO, Oxford Biomedica. "A recent report highlighted that there are currently 289 novel cell and gene therapies in development for a variety of diseases and conditions, around 40 percent of which are targeting cancers. We’re pleased to see Gyros Protein Technologies developing vital products to support this field.”
