Pronota Utilizes Thermo Fisher Scientific’s New HeavyPeptide FasTrack Service

  • Thermo Fisher Scientific is helping Pronota discover and validate disease biomarkers with its new HeavyPeptide FasTrack™ service.  FasTrack speeds up the process of peptide selection and purification by providing a selection of crude heavy peptides to immediately begin developing protein assays, according to Thermo Fisher Scientific. The crude peptides are used in mass spec setup and initial analysis to identify the best proteotypic peptides.

    Once a customer has identified its candidates, Thermo Fisher uses retained crude stock to produce the final purified heavy peptides as Thermo Scientific HeavyPeptide AQUA kits.

    “Our new FasTrack service will improve our customers’ quantitative workflows, providing robust data faster while reducing costs,” said Joel Louette, commercial director for the Thermo Fisher Scientific biopolymers business. “By accelerating biomarker validation, we are helping our customers speed the development of new medicines and diagnostics for patients who need them.”
