Refeyn, the mass photometry pioneer, offers new capabilities to characterise the function, structural composition and dynamics of biomolecules. Refeyn instruments measure the mass of individual molecules directly in solution, quickly and simply revealing the true behaviour of molecules in near-native environments. The diverse applications of mass photometry include quantitative analysis of sample purity and homogeneity, biomolecular complex assembly and disassembly, the strength and kinetics of molecular interactions, and more. Refeyn was spun out of Oxford University in 2018 to make mass photometry available globally. Its technology has now been rapidly adopted across academia and industry, where it is transforming biomolecular characterisation.  The TwoMP, Refeyn’s mass photometer, brings the technology into everyday laboratory life, enabling molecular measurements with unprecedented speed and simplicity. It uses proprietary technology to detect the light scattered by single molecules in solution, delivering label-free mass measurements over a broad mass range with high precision and exquisite sensitivity.

The Netherlands X-omics Initiative is a National Roadmap Large-Scale Research Infrastructure, partially funded by NWO with a total budget of 40 million euro.

X-omics aims to establish a X-omics research infrastructure across the Netherlands, by combining technologies in the field of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and data analysis, integration & stewardship. With this infrastructure biomedical problems can be solved using an integrated approach.

Two major goals are:

1. Advance X-omics technologies far beyond state-of-art,

2. Realize an integrated X-omics infrastructure in the Netherlands.

A central helpdesk has been created to provide access to all the services of the facilities involved in the X-omics research infrastructure. Via this helpdesk, researchers can request genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and data analysis, integration & stewardship services or get into contact with experts for advice on multi-omics approaches.

A proof of principle of the X-omics approach will be provided by starting 3 demonstrator projects on different levels (cellular, individual and population). 

During the project, training schools will be set up for new ‘omics’ users and for ‘omics’ practitioners.

To allow communications between the users of the infrastructure a X-omics community will be established. This community will interact via meetings, newsletters and social media.

We make Electrospray Ionization for Mass Spectrometry, proteomics, metabolomics, and volatilomics.

We are experts in electro-fluidic mechanics and we make the finest ionization systems at the service of molecular biology scientists.

o             At Evosep we aim to improve quality of life and patient care by radically innovating how protein based clinical diagnostics are performed, initially through collaborations with world-leading scientists about developing new technologies and solutions to make sample separation 10 times faster and 100 times more robust than todays’ alternatives.

o             Proteomics is about the study of proteins in a biological mechanism, both their individual function and their combined interactions. For clinical proteomics the goal is to be able to quickly and efficiently compare a biological sample against a profile panel of selected proteins in order to deliver a diagnose / verdict of healthy or diseased (within given statistical margins). Such a profile is typically called a biomarker and for official approval, it must be demonstrated successfully on a large population.

o             This calls for fast sample processing and because such clinical samples, in the form of blood or biopsies, are much more crude that the relatively clean cell cultures used in basic research, very robust protocols and consumables are also required.

At Biognosys, we believe that deep proteome insights hold the key to breakthrough discoveries that can dramatically improve human health. We enable life science researchers and drug hunters to look at the proteome from every angle with our versatile portfolio of proprietary next-generation proteomics services, software, and kits, including the TrueDiscovery™, TrueTarget™, and TrueSignature™ platforms and flagship software Spectronaut™. These solutions provide a multi-dimensional view of protein expression, function, and structure in all biological species and sample types. Biognosys’ unique, patented technologies utilize high-resolution mass spectrometry to quantify thousands of proteins across thousands of samples with industry-leading precision, depth, and throughput. Through advanced data analytics, Biognosys translates data into actionable insights for R&D and clinical research. For more information, visit biognosys.com.

Syft Technologies develops and manufactures the proprietary technology “Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS)” for real-time quantitative analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and permanent gases in food, flavour, pharma, environment, consumer goods, material testing and cleanroom applications. 

 

The technology is based on soft-CI with the choice of eight selectable reagent ions. These reactants exhibit a significant variety of ion-molecule reactions and react in a different way with each compound, and thus enhance specificity and allow detection of a wide range of VOC, including the separation of isomers. Utilizing a library of more than 1500 compounds with known rate coefficients, the software identifies the analytes and instantaneously calculates each analyte’s absolute concentration from the specific reagent and product ion count rates. This enables real-time monitoring of dynamic processes or high-throughput lab analysis without the need for sample preparation, pre-concentration or chromatographic separation. 

 

Syft instruments deliver a combination of unique analytical attributes as high selectivity, limits of detection in the pptv range, high sample throughput (min to seconds), robustness and ease of use. Our users are enabled to measure significantly more than previously possible, resulting in a greater understanding of their products and control of their processes.

JEOL is a global leader in instrumentation for scientific research and industrial applications, providing innovative technologies and products for mass spectrometry, NMR and electron microscopy.
