Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced the launch of its fully-automated analyzers specifically designed for enzyme assay applications.
Multi-enzyme analysis can now reportedly be achieved through a single, fully-automated enzyme analyzer, benefitting industrial enzyme manufacturers and enzyme users in the food, beverage, biopharmaceutical, fuel ethanol and chemical, and solid waste management industries.
According to Thermo Fisher, the new Thermo Scientific Gallery Enzyme Master and Thermo Scientific Gallery Plus Enzyme Master analyzers are the first automated discrete analyzers designed specifically for enzyme assay applications. The systems combine hardware and new custom-designed software to deliver fully automated incubation settings, reagent additions and precise measurement calculations, all at the touch of a button. By automating these critical steps, the analyzers streamline method development and deliver reliable results for enzyme analysis.
“Traditional enzyme assays involve a manual process that can generate inconsistent results,” says Dino Alfano, vice president and general manager, ion chromatography and sample preparation, of Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Manual methods are usually only suitable for a few samples or limited enzyme types. Therefore, there is a growing need for a single, automated instrument to modernize enzyme analysis. These new enzyme analyzers were developed to effectively manage many enzymes, substrates and methods in a single instrument, and deliver reproducible and dependable results with minimal user input required.”
According to Thermo Fisher, the Gallery Enzyme Master systems can effectively handle many different enzyme assays and measuring conditions. The analyzers offer efficient and reliable enzyme analysis across a wide range of industries — from enzyme manufacturers to the animal feed and pet food industry — and have the flexibility to be used in applications from method development to routine analysis.
“When considering an alternative for our aging population of discrete analyzers, we decided to replace them with the new Thermo Scientific Gallery Plus Enzyme Master,” says Erica Fritse, Thermo Fisher’s global QC governance manager, DSM. “This system ensures we can continue with temperature-controlled measurement of the activity of our enzymes. We use the Gallery Plus Enzyme Master for R&D and QC release on one, easy-to-use, automated system. A big advantage is the central, global management of the measuring protocols. This makes it easier than ever to assure the use of the latest updated methods.”
