ProteinSimple Charges Ahead with the Simple Western

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ProteinSimple today introduced Peggy as the next member of the Simple Western product family.  Peggy is the first Simple Western product to not only replace the traditional slow, inconsistent Western Blot, but to enable further in-depth characterization of proteins via charge-based separation. 


The Simple Western is a Western with none of the hassle.  No messy gels, no transfer tanks, no blots, no imaging and no manual analysis.  Simply load up to 96 samples, push a button, walk away and come back to fully analyzed data.  The system automates everything.  Now, with Peggy, the Simple Western system separates proteins by size or charge, detects your target proteins and tells you their molecular weight or pI.    

In today's instrumentation market, researchers are forced to choose between platforms that perform individual assays.  Peggy eliminates that painful decision by enabling two distinct assays in a single high throughput system.  With Peggy, a biopharmaceutical researcher can perform 96 Simple Westerns in a single automated experiment to identify lead candidates and further characterize any heterogeneity in those candidates using Peggy's dual-mode capability.  The ability to combine analytical approaches within a single automated instrument is of tremendous value.  

"Peggy brings together two critical requirements in biopharmaceutical research, identification and characterization," commented Tim Harkness, CEO at ProteinSimple. "The dual-mode capability of Peggy will further simplify protein research and we are extremely proud and excited to offer a product that delivers enhanced sample characterization in the fully automated, quantitative format our customers expect from us." 

Meet Peggy and the Simple Western family on October 13-17 at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana or visit
