Dualsystems-Biotech-Switzerland-Flow-TriCEPS-Pretest-Vizualization-function

Flow-TriCEPS (for flow cytometry) and TAMRA-TriCEPS technology (for microscopy) are tools to perform pretests prior your target identification studies on the living cells for drug candidates/ligands such as peptides, antibodies, ADC’s, proteins and small molecules. The TriCEPS variants we use (Flow-TriCEPS and TAMRA-TriCEPS) are very similar to the TriCEPS/HATRIC molecules used for the identification experiment. The only difference is that we have a visualization function instead of a pull out function. Further, since cells are not oxidized the glycans of the cell surface do not react with TRICEPS thus the observed binding is due to the interaction of the ligand of interest with the unknown targets. Pretest TriCEPS molecules are used to

  • Determine the best cell type to use in your target identification experiment
  • Define the optimal binding conditions on the living cells (time, temperature, pH)
  • Identify co-factors needed for binding to the cells of your drug candidates

Perform functional assays with Flow-TriCEPS coupled drug candidates/ligands.

Flow-TriCEPS with flow cytometry



Dualsystems-Biotech-Switzerland-Flow-TriCEPS-Principle-1

Utilize Flow-TriCEPS to visualize the binding of TriCEPS coupled ligands to the unknown target(s) at the cell membrane by flow cytometry. Optimize the binding conditions by varying different parameters (pH, temperature, time, co-factors etc.) to define the best conditions for the identification studies using the LRC platforms.


TAMRA-TriCEPS for microscopy



Dualsystems-Biotech-Switzerland-TAMRA

Use TAMRA-TriCEPS to visualize the binding of TriCEPS coupled ligand to the unknown target(s) at the cell membrane by microscopy. Test different binding conditions (pH, temperature, time, co-factors etc.) to find the optimal parameters for the identification experiments with the LRC platforms.

It was a pleasure working with Paul Helbling and his team. I was impressed by their attention to detail, and optimization of all cell conditions to produce the most reliable possible results. They kept me informed at every stage of the process and shared data as soon as they were able to. Using their LRC-TriCEPS platform, we were able to follow leading candidates as binding partners for our cardiac targeting peptide and identified the most likely binding partner.

The team from DualSystems Biotech AG has been extremely helpful in delivering scientific advice for CuroNZ’s target identification journey. The quick turnaround time and the precision of NRP2945’s target identification in regard to the utilization of their TRICEPS technology impressed us very much. Meanwhile we could identify another NRP2945 receptor target that was identified by DualSystems as being recruited to the NRP2945-activated membrane receptor complex. An absolute pleasure to work with Paul Helbling’s team.

The University of Oklahoma – Health Sciences Center

I was very pleased with my collaboration with the team at Dualsystems. We had to work with difficult cells and the team helped us develop modifications to the original protocol to be able to use the TriCEPS approach with our cells. The whole team was very responsive, involved, and knowledgeable and this led to a successful identification of a receptor for our ligand of interest. We have since then confirmed the interaction and we are now getting ready to publish this study, which will have implications in the treatment of ocular injuries.
