Technology Overview and Workflow
The nHance™ PCS 96‐Well Plate features a thin film layer at the bottom of each well. The thin‐film structure is composed of a nano‐sized pore network tailored to the size of peptides. Peptides enter pores but larger proteins and other molecules remain in solution. Unwanted molecules and large debris are removed during the washing procedures. Peptides of interest are extracted for subsequent identification and quantification. Through nHance™ PCS peptide pH modulation, a peptide’s interaction with the nanoporous layer of the nHance™ PCS can be manipulated to provide superior peptide extraction.
nHance™ Workflow Summary
NMS has multiple patents and applications on its nanoporous technologies covering the basic technology and product-specific implementations including the 96-well plate configuration. The basic patents were issued with wide claims and additional applications are pending internationally.
