RedShiftBio is proud to introduce our 2021 Grant Program, utilizing the new StructIR Lab™ for sample processing.

The StructIR Lab Grant is an excellent opportunity for industry and academic researchers to apply the sensitivity and speed of Microfluidic Modulation Spectroscopy (MMS) to their formulation workflow and measure previously undetectable biomolecule structural changes.

  • Two grant winners will be selected
  • Grants will be open to organizations in North America, the United Kingdom,  and Europe
  • Winners will be able to run up to 10 samples with our in-house MMS expert

Important Dates

    • Grant submissions accepted between October 6- November 15, 2021
    • Winners will be selected on November 22, 2021
    • Sample intake will take place December 6- 17, 2021

StructIR Lab utilizes the groundbreaking  AQS³pro powered by Microfluidic Modulation Spectroscopy, a next-generation IR-based spectroscopy platform for biomolecule structure characterization.

Key features of the AQS³pro:

  • 24 and 96 well plate formats for throughput flexibility
  • Automated, low-interference with real-time buffer referencing
  • Detects <2% change in secondary structure
  • Adjusts formulation based on indicators of aggregation

Microfluidic Modulation Spectroscopy is an efficient technique for biomolecule analysis that directly addresses the limitations of spectroscopy-based technologies. This technology provides drift-free, background subtracted, high-sensitivity measurements of protein secondary structure across four decades of concentration.
