South Carolina-based IMCS, Tymora Analytical partner to streamline exosome research

August 10, 2023

Integrated Micro-Chromatography Systems, Inc. (“IMCS”), a leader in automating laboratory workflows, and Tymora Analytical, an authority in exosome purification and proteomics services, have announced a significant enhancement to their ongoing collaboration to advance exosome research.

The partnership began in 2017 with phosphoproteomics, where Tymora’s unique chemistries were packaged in IMCStips, a pipette-based purification tool to promote automated phosphopeptide enrichment workflows in biopharma and biotech industries. As a continuation of this ongoing collaboration, IMCS will promote Tymora’s premiere exosome proteomics services as part of its expanding marketing efforts.

Exosomes, tiny extracellular vesicles secreted by cells, have gained immense attention in biomedical research due to their role in intercellular communication and potential as diagnostic and therapeutic tools. However, purifying exosomes from biological samples is challenging, requiring sophisticated methods to ensure consistency, purity, and integrity of the isolated exosomes.
