We aim to identify the ligand of a receptor, but due to the low affinity of the interaction other approaches that have been tried failed. Paul Helbling and the DualSystem team provided a great support and critical insights for performing the ligand identification using the LCR-TriCEPS technology. We found now a candidate ligand that we are currently validating with promising results. DualSystem team has been really professional and of great support in this process and we plan to work again with them in the future.

We needed to identify the target of an antibody from a phenotypic screening approach using a difficult iPSC-derived cell line and reached-out to DualSystems and their LRC-TriCEPS technology after an earlier attempt at target deconvolution using an array of membrane targets had failed.  The support I got from Paul Helbling and his team was great and as someone who was unfamiliar with the approach, I really appreciated the advice and guidance that I got. At the end of the process the top candidate from the analysis was confirmed as the target of the antibody – a brilliant result! Overall, a really positive experience and I would definitely recommend DualSystems.

“DualSystems LRC-TriCEPS platform helped us in the identification of a novel allergen receptor. This finding was central to our recently published work and funded grant! DualSystems was very helpful during the entire process, if you are considering using this platform, do not hesitate. The process is straightforward and the support is excellent!”

DualSystems’ LRC-TriCEPS platform was exactly what we needed to identify potential targets and guide us in mechanism of action studies for our peptide program. They helped us every step of the way — from understanding their capabilities, to guiding study design, and supporting sample preparation. The report they delivered exceeded our expectations and truly stands out from data reports we’ve received from other companies. They were readily available to answer questions and discuss concerns or outcomes. We are very encouraged by the results and are currently following up on the targets identified. We highly recommend working with DualSystems and incorporating the LRC-TriCEPS platform into your program. We look forward to working with the DualSystems team again in the future.

Using LRC-TriCEPS, we aimed to identify novel direct cell surface receptors of our ligand of interest.
At any time, we experienced great support of Dualsystems Biotech. They kindly helped to find optimal conditions for our purposes and provided help with any kind of question before, during and after the experiment. LRC-TriCEPS allowed us to identify novel cell surface receptors of our ligand, which we could successfully validate in different cell types and with different biochemical assays. We can fully recommend Dualsystems Biotech and are looking forward to perform further analyses using LRC-TriCEPS.

We appreciate the support of Dualsystems Biotech and their LRC-TriCEPS technology we were able to identify a binding protein for our>INSotropic peptide

We wanted to use LRC-TriCEPS to characterise the mechanism of action of our ligand of interest. Not only were several candidate targets identified but we have successfully validated two of these receptors in>INS producing beta cells. DualSystems Biotech were very helpful and involved from study design, to experiments and reporting. Even after the initial report, DualSystems Biotech have answered follow up queries and provided assistance regarding publications. I highly recommend the LRC-TriCEPS technology and DualSystems Biotech and Paul Helbling and his team to work with.

“We had a challenging project where we aimed to discover the receptor of our ligand of interest in primary human cells. Dualsystems Biotech took the challenge and provided outstanding support throughout the entire process, from the experimental design to data analysis. Using their LRC-TriCEPS technology, we could identify a candidate receptor and additional downstream interacting partners that we have now validated. We look forward to new collaborations and discoveries with Dr Paul Helbling and his team”. – Prof Carola Vinuesa, ANU

We used DualSystems to help identify a potential novel receptor for a ligand that despite being studied for decades had unclear catabolism mechanisms involving its receptor mediated uptake. The DualSystems team will walk you through the process, including early validation of your ligand being used for this technology, data collection and analysis, and provide an easy to follow report on the findings. For anyone interested in receptor-ligand interactions, DualSystems and the TriCEPS approach is worth strongly considering involving in your research program, as it can quickly help identify receptors that would have been very difficult to do so without.

“It was my great pleasure to collaborate with Dualsystems Biotech. We have been tested various proteomic analysis to identify the specific receptor for our secreted ligand. But, only LRC-TriCEPS experiment successfully gave us a right answer, because this receptor and ligand interactions were indeed relatively weaker than other general receptor and ligand interactions. The team very kindly consulted the whole experimental steps from the experimental design to the final data analysis. We are now going to use TriCEPS  again for several other secreted ligands with a great hope for discovery of new receptors. Best Regards, Ho Min Kim”
