QRET Technologies, Inc. is a Turku, Finland, based manufacturer and provider of innovative technologies, reagents and turnkey tools for biological and biomedical research, research and development of pharmaceuticals and clinical diagnostics.
Their products and services focus primarily on time-resolved luminescence-based assay technologies and reagents, and nucleic acid extraction technologies.
Time-resolved luminescence assays and reagents
QRET Technologies is the provider of lanthanide chelates and related assay reagents. The current portfolio of assays focuses on GTPases and growth factors. Assays are homogeneous single-label concepts without labelling of target receptors in a high throughput format using 384 microtiter plates. Kits provide you with high sensitivity assays in a novel technology format.
QRET also offer services for assay development including labelling of proteins, small molecules, aptamers with lanthanide chelates and fluorochromes.
- GTPase association assay kit
- GTPase hydrolysis assay kit
- Europium labelled GTP (various positions)
- Europium chelate labels
- GTP-specific antibody
- VEGF and bFGF aptamer assay kit
Protein aggregation and interaction
The Protein-Probe assay concept is revolutionizing biomedical research, due to its high sensitivity and ease of use. Using time-resolved luminescence as the detection technique, the Protein-Probe can detect protein (antibody) aggregation below 0.1% outperforming the sensitivity of existing technologies 100-fold. Protein-Probe external dye approach is highly applicable to protein-ligand interaction studies providing a tool for biochemical studies without labelling of protein and ligand.
