  SYSTEMS BIOLOGY: GENOMICS, PROTEOMICS and GLYCOMICS SOLUTIONS
                        @ Molecular, cellular, individual organism (clinical) and population levels of study

Over the last 25 plus years, primary business focus of KamTek staff has been to offer meaningful highly professional support to promote biomedical/biotech research by complementing clients research lab operations with our specialized state-of-the-art facilities and services. This support could be in the form of:

  • high cost facility such as a bio-repository, operating under 21CFR Section 211 compliance;

  • BSL2 cell culture lab operations such as transformation of primary cultures into continuously growing cultures, &

  • Laboratory setup for performing molecular biology and immunological assays including high throughput operations with biochips custom printed at KamTek.

  • KamTek extends this support to biotech communities in academia, government research labs, pharmaceutical and biotech companies for epidemiological studies, molecular diagnostics for disease, and drug/vaccine efficacy. The researchers may be engaged in basic and/or applied research of medical, veterinary and agricultural importance.

    Services are performed by staff with deep understanding of bio-repository operations and strong scientific background.

                  


                        

    BIO-REPOSITORY FACILITY AND SERVICES

    KamTek safeguards biological samples and preserves their functional and identity integrity through their life cycle by two types of operations.

    1) Establishing biorepository provisions such as:     

    • uninterrupted energy supply
          
    • liquid nitrogen (LN2) supply
          
    • automatic 24/7 monitoring systems for crucial equipment     performance as well as facility security and environment
          
    • redundant communication systems
          
    • secure redundant data recording and storage systems

    2) Using certified and calibrated laboratory equipment and establishing cGMP & bio-safety compliant SOPs for bio-sample storage, processing and management operations including inventory sample tracking and cold-chain custody during transport.


    CELL CULTURES AND RELATED SERVICES

    Cell culture related services are offered for a variety of investigations including those utilizing high-thru-put microarray tools. EBV transformation of B-cells which are excellent resource of sample DNA for genetic studies as well as for human monoclonal antibodies of diagnostic and therapeutic value. Hybridoma development & growth to produce monoclonal antibodies as well as cell based general immunological studies, immune-diagnostics for single-plex investigations. In addition, monoclonal antibodies are a great resource for high throughput assays using protein/glycoprotein microarray systems.


    CUSTOM MICROARRAYS(BIOCHIP)

    These services include custom microarray printing of biopolymers such as nucleic acids, proteins, glycoproteins, antibodies, lectins, sugars glycans or glyco-lipids on a variety of microarray surfaces. A variety of hybridization or binding assays can be performed on such microarrays. KamTek offers any combination of Microarray Printing, Binding or Hybridization assays, Scan and Basic Image Analysis Services.


    RELATED MOLECULAR BIOLOGY LAB SERVICES

    Services such as plasmid growth and DNA isolation, DNA/ RNA isolation from cultured cells or PBMCs, PCR or RT-PCR reaction, to generate the biopolymers for microarrays or for any research project, are offered to complement other services performed at KamTek.

    Often times, a variety of biotech laboratory assays are performed to evaluate specimen integrity of samples in storage and/or for scientific investigations or development of custom products required for biotech research.
