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.

I was very pleased with my collaboration with the team at Dualsystems. We had to work with difficult cells and the team helped our lab 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 this interaction and we are now getting ready to publish this study, which will have implications in the treatment of ocular injuries.University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center-Logo

The identification of a T cell co-receptor for staphylococcal superantigens had been challenging due to the structural features of the interaction and its kinetics.  However, working with Dualstystems Biotech AG, and with Dr. Paul Helbling in particular, and using the LRC-TriCEPS technology, we were able to identify a candidate that was subsequently corroborated by biochemical and functional assays.   We are very happy with this collaboration , and sincerely recommend it for the identification of novel receptor or co-receptor candidates.LABioMed-Logo(Quim) Madrenas, MD, PhD, FCAHS

“With the help of the team at Dualsystems we confirmed a potential receptor which has lead to a Nature paper submission and successful funding of a research grant. The LRC-TriCEPS experiment was straightforward and the process was cost effective. We look forward to using TriCEPS in the future.”QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute LogoAnita Burgess  |  PhD

We are very pleased with the experience and interaction on very high professional level with Dualsystems Biotech. As a result of such collaboration the new receptor MUC5B was identified in human chondrosarcoma cells for the first time for antiproliferative neuropeptide PRP-1. Read more
I would like to thank once again the company and, particularly, Dr Helbling for his attention and collaboration.

Every aspect of our experience with Dualsystems Biotech was outstanding.  They provided excellent customer service and technical support throughout the entire process.  Their LRC-TriCEPS technology allowed us to identify several new candidate receptors for our protein of interest in rat primary neurons, and this has created new and exciting avenues for our research.

“We are very pleased with the work product of Dualsystems Biotech. The TriCEPS reagent allowed us to identify a novel ligand-extracellular matrix protein receptor interaction, which was not possible using traditional techniques. The Dualsystems team were very helpful in tailoring the experimental conditions to fit our biological question.”rockefeller-university-logoManish Ponda, M.D., M.S.

For the ligand sample two unique receptors were identified. Flow cytometry analysis with siRNA induced knockdown of these proteins confirmed that the presence of the protein is needed for CTRP3 binding to occur. CONCLUSION The LRC-TriCEPS methodology was successful in identifying the receptor for CTRP3.Logo East Tennessee State UniversityJonathan M Peterson
