“A specific assay with high through-put and simple readout is the key to receive improved enzyme variants in a reasonable time-frame”
– David Schönauer, Managing Director
SeSaM-Biotech integrates biological, physical and chemical expertise in the development of highly specific assays to screen enzyme mutant libraries.
Depending on the desired through-put, the assays are designed on the following platforms:
|low through-put||GC. HPLC||chromatogram(peaks)|
|medium through-put||TLC, tube arrays||colorimetric|
|high through-put||microtiter plate(48, 98, 384 well)||colorimetric, fluorometric|
|very high through-put||agar plate(semi-quantitative)||colorimetric, zone of clearance|
Assay development includes test trials plus optimization of assay parameters and conditions.

Assay development as part of the QuESt-service
SeSaM-Biotech has a wide variety of ready-to-use assay formats and systems available for most enzymes which are employed in the QuESt-service.
