"We tested PreOmics' iST Kit and were amazed by the results. The number of identified peptides and proteins was 20-30% higher compared to what is achieved using our standard lab procedure. Using the iST Kit enables you to start processing your samples in the morning and have them ready for LC-MS in the afternoon."

"Using this new sample preparation technology, we increased the efficiency of tryptic peptide cleavage and obtained better identification rates in our samples. In addition, the short hands-on-time for the entire workflow, as well as the comparatively low amounts of starting material, now enable us to process more and be more time-efficient."

"Our researchers happily rely on the PreOmics iST kit knowing that they will have stabilized the sources of technical variations, permitting them to focus on the biology of our precious samples. The PreOmics team has worked closely with our researchers to consult with us on our unique biological questions and concerns"

"In the Core Facility Proteomics, we recently used the new PreOmics sample preparation kit to process blood plasma or serum samples. The kit drastically reduced the hands-on-time as well as the necessary amounts of starting material in comparison to standard protocols. We appreciate the high reproducibility and easy applicability of this kit for experienced as well as inexperienced users."

“Our results clearly indicate that the PreOmics' kit outperformed our standard method in terms of both identification and quantification rates of proteins as well as peptides. In addition, we are convinced by the high reproducibility and efficiency of the approach. The complete protocol was fast, very easy to follow and the identification rates and sample quality exceeded our expectation!”

IMP, IMBA and GMI
“As a core facility we often receive samples of unknown quality. To ensure the contaminants in these samples don’t end up clogging our precious equipment and leading to extensive downtime we needed to find a reliable and robust workflow we could trust. The iST sample preparation workflow from PreOmics is our trusted option for global sample preparation. The kit produces clean desalted samples which absolutely decrease downtime of our instruments. The kit is even suitable for in-experienced users who may have never done a tryptic digest before. We are really happy with the ease-of-use and reproducibility and are recommending the PreOmics’ kit to our core facility colleagues and collaborators.”

"We have just set up our first high resolution MS for proteomic workflows in the lab, and the highly efficient digestion, speed, simplicity and reproducibility of the IST 8x and 96x kits have really allowed us to hit the ground running. Knowing the sample preparation was taken care of, we could focus on study design, data analysis and the LC-MS itself. We could quickly turn around our first study results including for tougher matrices such as skin."

UCSF & Gladstone Institutes
"PreOmics' kits are like a mini-prep for proteomics! Not only are these kits easy to use, but the resulting samples and MS data are of high quality. We quickly realized that these kits were so easy to use and required equipment common to any lab, that we could now confidently have collaborators purchase the kits and prepare their own samples. It has saved us a lot of time, and now we can focus on more important aspects of our research."
Danielle Swaney, PhD, Assistant Professor at UCSF, San Francisco, USARead the customer spotlight
"After stress testing the iST kits, we quickly found that they reproducibly provide superior quality data in a fraction of the time compared to conventional bottom-up sample preparation protocols. We were also excited to see the breadth of protocols established by PreOmics for the variety of biological material we routinely process and utilize for our work."
Ghaith Hamza, Senior Proteomics Scientist at AstraZeneca, Boston, USARead the customer spotlight
"We rely on efficient, fast and robust sample preparation. After evaluation, we immediately adopted the PreOmics' iST solutions, which enabled us to improve our results, especially when working with small amounts of samples such as skin micro-biopsies. Very importantly this workflow allowed us to improve our machine uptime through improved purification. In PreOmics we have found more than a supplier, we have found a partner who is always ready to exchange ideas. Ultimately this partnership ensures Phylogene can pass on the benefits of improved machine uptime, savings in sample-prep time, and improved quality, to its customers."
Jean-Marc Monneuse, Mass Spectrometry Manager at Phylogene S.A, FranceRead the customer spotlight
"I am absolutely floored by how good the iST technology is! It works so well and is so easy to use - I have taught folks with absolutely no LC-MS sample prep experience to generate samples which look amazing on the LC-MS. It has also allowed us to change our direction and pursue higher throughput paths for our drug screening/study questions allowing us to get useful data so quickly. We even have a procedure where someone can start the experiment in the morning and by the time they come in the next day, we already have results searched and ready to go - it's hard to express how great this is. I have recommended PreOmics' kits to many friends and colleagues in the Bay Area (and Beyond) too."
