Production of Recombinant Proteins and R&D of Novel Pathogen DiagnosticsDetails
Protean is a leading Contract Research Organisation (CRO) specializing in the production of artificial and native recombinant proteins and enzymes, as well as cutting-edge R&D of innovative pathogen diagnostics.
Protean’s wide portfolio of innovative products includes recombinant proteins, enzymes, antibodies, cytokines, transcription factors, antigens, cancer markers, bacterial toxins, fluorescent proteins, assays, and a special SARS-CoV-2 range of products.
Production of recombinant proteins and enzymes
As an original producer of recombinant proteins and enzymes operating in a certified environment under ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 international standards, Protean offers the best quality and price ratio for your specific needs.
All recombinant products in Protean’s broad portfolio are fully qualified for various applications in downstream GMP-certified processes including recombinant protein-based therapeutics, vaccines, and diagnostic reagents.
Based on 25 years of experience and strong international academic and industrial experience, Protean’s scientists believe that by using advanced technologies, the near limitless amino acid sequence space may be harnessed for the development of novel proteins with any desired properties.
High-quality antigens for production of IVD diagnostic kits
Protean’s high-quality antigens serve as the foundation for the production of reliable, ultra-competitive, and cost-effective IVD diagnostic kits.
Protean produces antigens from wild-type Borrelia strains for the development of a new generation of IVD tests for Lyme disease diagnostics. The company is focused on the development of rapid in vitro evolution technology for the production of high affinity protein binders.
Isothermal Amplification technology for pathogen detection and DNA/RNA sequences
Protean’s proprietary isothermal amplification technology (LAMP/RT-LAMP) for simple detection of various pathogens and specific DNA and RNA sequences, benefits from in-house production of amplification enzymes BstI DNA polymerase and ProRT Reverse Transcriptase and is fully compliant with CE IVD certification standards.
The novel isothermal amplification technology offers major advantages for laboratories, including faster results and sizable cost reduction over traditional PCR assays whilst providing the same sensitivity and specificity. The patent application has been filed in September 2020.
The company’s new AUMED test kit RT-LAMP Assay SARS-CoV2 is developed for diagnostics of SARS-CoV-2 virus in isolated viral RNA samples. The test can also detect primary samples without RNA isolation.
Custom protein expression solutions
Protean’s experienced scientists will work with you to help meet your specific project needs. The company provides subcloning of optimised sequence into any expression vector followed by the production of excellent quality pure recombinant protein ( >95% by PAGE). Protean supports fast and flexible production services to meet your deadlines and demand and deliver highly pure and biologically active proteins on time and on budget.
Protean is a leading ISO 9001 & ISO 13485 certified CRO with 25 years of experience in R&D of revolutionary pathogen diagnostics and production of recombinant proteins & enzymes with advanced properties.
Originating from Greek mythology, the company name Protean comes from the sea god Proteus, who knew all things—past, present, and future, and was able to assume different shapes, symbolizing the original matter from which the world was created. The adjective “Protean” means changeable in shape or form, variable, universal, or adaptive.
With its highly knowledgeable team, decades-long experience and flexible solutions, Protean is the ideal CRO for pharmaceutical, biotech, and diagnostics companies.
