GenNext & SCIEX to Co-Market an Advanced High Order Structure Analysis (HOS) Workflow for Biopharmaceutical Research
Together, the companies will spread the adoption of the latest HOS and Mass Spec technologies to help scientists improve the safety, stability, and effectiveness of biotherapeutics.
Half Moon Bay, CA and Framingham, MA – September 14, 2023 – GenNext Technologies, Inc., provider of novel instrumentation, software, and services for structural biology research, revealed their agreement to co-market a robust workflow for Hydroxyl Radical Protein Footprinting (HRPF) studies with SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies. The announcement was made at the 2023 California Separation Science Society combined Mass Spectrometry and Higher Order Structure (CASSS MS/HOS) meetings.
The agreement leverages each company’s products to create a novel structural biology workflow to advance higher order structure analysis of biotherapeutics. GenNext’s Flash Oxidation (Fox®) Protein Footprinting System performs covalent labeling of biotherapeutic products. Mass spectrometry analysis is then performed on the ZenoTOF 7600 system from SCIEX, followed by high resolution data analysis to be done by GenNext’s FoxWare® Data Processing Software.
GenNext’s Fox System easily performs higher order structure studies for biotherapeutic discovery and development that previously required complicated, expensive, and lasers or beamline sources. Pairing the FOX system to the ZenoTOF 7600 system enables the acquisition of high-resolution mass spectrometry data. The powerful MS/MS sensitivity and enhanced ion fragmentation technology of the ZenoTOF 7600 system allows for localization of challenging PTMs and more comprehensive understanding of protein structure.
Data generated from the workflow collaboration will be showcased during the CASSS MS meeting at the poster presentation “Improving TNFα’s Epitope Identification with Residue Level Hydroxyl Radical Protein Footprinting using the ZenoTOF 7600 system,” presented by Emily Chea, of GenNext Technologies.
“We are proud to co-market with SCIEX, a top-tier innovator of high-resolution MS equipment,” said Scot Weinberger, CEO of GenNext Technologies. “The combined power of both companies’ products will help improve therapeutic efficacy and safety, accelerate biotherapeutic development.”
“The ZenoTOF 7600 system is a strong fit with the GenNext HOS system,” states Jose Castro-Perez, Senior Director Global Market Development at SCIEX. “Novel fragmentation with electron activate dissociation (EAD) technology on the system adds another dimension for structural characterization, providing information with the speed and accuracy needed to confidently accelerate biopharmaceutical and biosimilar development.”
This optimized GenNext/SCIEX workflow will help make the study of protein HOS more accessible, impactful, and transformative for biopharmaceutical researchers.
