GlycoSeLect and IonDx Inc., Collaborating on High-throughput Glycoprotein Analyses
Monterey, CA, USA and Dublin Ireland ‐ 16 November, 2020 – GlycoSeLect Ltd and IonDx Inc. are actively engaged in a research collaboration to evaluate the use of Recombinant Prokaryotic Lectins (RPLs) and IonDx’s Ion Mobility Spectrometry technology as a new way to screen glycoproteins rapidly.
“GlycoSeLect’s glycan specific lectins provide a high degree of specificity that will improve detection, monitoring and profiling of glycosylation within a wide range of biotherapeutics. Hence, we are excited to join GlycoSeLect and apply our ion mobility technology to all phases of biotherapeutic production and help manufacturers streamline this analytical bottleneck”, said Ms. Ananya Dubey Kelsoe, Executive Director of Business and Corporate Development at IonDx Inc.
Robert Dunne, GlycoSeLect CEO commented that “The GlycoSeLect team is pleased to work with our friends in IonDx. Our RPL technology has been shown to be highly specific in detecting glycan structures which is vital for the analysis of biotherapeutic products. The IonDx team has developed impressive ion mobility technology and applications potential for fast routine batch to batch screening or clone selection. The combination of our technologies bodes well for developing a more efficient workflow for biotherapeutic analytics”.
