Meet 17-year-old Eric Wang, our youngest OpenSPR user.
USCD graduate student Ember Tota next to Nicoya’s benchtop OpenSPR (previous model).
Tell us about the exciting work you do.
Glycans cover the surfaces of cells and they often act as important receptors for different growth factors involved in cell signaling, differentiation, communication, and many other important functions. It is important for us to characterize the interactions between our mimetics and these growth factors of interest.
How has OpenSPR been the key to getting your results?
With no prior knowledge or experience using SPR, how helpful was the OpenSPR training process?
"The team at Nicoya has been very helpful, promptly answering any questions, helping me analyze data, troubleshooting issues, and helping me learn the ins and outs of how the instruments works. The initial training was very fast and simple; the longest portion has been optimization for my own system." – Ember Tota
