Quanterix Corporation a leader in high definition diagnostics delivering ultrasensitive single molecule measurement for the benefit of human health today announced that RayBiotech Inc. of Norcross GA has adopted its Simoa technology to deploy as part of their innovative solutions for biomarker discovery and testing.
“Given RayBiotech’s longstanding reputation as a leader in the development of protein detection products it is only fitting to work with Quanterix” said Dr. Ray Ruopan Huang Co-founder and CEO RayBiotech. “With Simoa’s 100 to 1000 fold increase in sensitivity over standard protein detection techniques coupled with RayBiotech’s target specific content this service has the potential to transform our understanding of numerous diseases. We look forward to using the Simoa platform as a new tool at RayBiotech for the ultrasensitive detection of protein biomarkers.”
RayBiotech will leverage its extensive catalog of antibodies and experience with developing protein assays to offer its customers services that complement Quanterix’ own Simoa Accelerator offering based in Lexington MA. The Simoa Accelerator lab allows researchers to access its technology to run their samples on Simoa assays convert their existing assays to Simoa for greater sensitivity or to have custom assays developed by the Quanterix team for specific markers of interest.
“Understanding the incredible role of quantifying ultra-low concentrations of protein biomarkers in human samples and their linkage to the complex mechanisms of a disease has the potential to revolutionize the field of medicine as we know it” said Kevin Hrusovsky CEO and Executive Chairman Quanterix. “We are very pleased to be collaborating with RayBiotech and to work together to provide access to these important new developments in healthcare.”
