pioneering proteins launch

We are proud to launch our Pioneering Protein range! A range of modified proteins have been carefully developed by world leading academic laboratories, licenced through Cambridge Enterprise, and then manufactured to our high purity and bioactivity standards, bringing together academic innovation with high level manufacturing purity. Folloistatin-resistant activin A (FRACTA) has been developed by our [...]

Implementing animal-free recombinant proteins into stem cell supply chains

Most industries today are under pressure to switch to more ethical and sustainable animal-free alternatives, and now the trend is coming to stem cell labs. As stem cell applications accelerate towards the clinic, novel drug discovery platforms are rapidly scaled, and new transformative stem cell-based technologies such as cultured meat arise, there is [...]

Video: Growth factor purity and its implications for stem cell culture

Presentation by Luana Ferrara, Senior Protein Scientist Video script Slide 1: Introduction  Hello! My name is Luana Ferrara and I am a senior protein scientist at Qkine. In this short video, I’ll be presenting a comparative analysis of the purity of recombinant Activin A from different suppliers and highlighting why it's important to consider the biochemical quality of growth factors for your stem cell culture.   Slide 2: The role of [...]

Building next generation growth factors for organoid-driven precision medicine: a protein engineering project co-funded by Innovate UK

We were delighted to be awarded Innovate UK funding to address issues of quality and availability of growth factors for use in organoid technologies. The Qkine R&D team are applying a combination of protein expression, refolding optimisation and structure-guided protein engineering to improve the biological properties and quality of proteins such as R-spondins, TGFβ1, members of the BMP and FGF family proteins.
