THUNDER™ - The efficiency of TR-FRET technology accessible to all

Over the past few years, TR-FRET technology has established itself as the tool of choice in industry for cellular target quantification.

With their new range of THUNDER™ kits, BioAuxiulium are changing the world of TR-FRET by providing a flexible, efficient and robust tools accessible for all.

What is the THUNDER™ TR-FRET technology?

The THUNDER™  TR-FRET assay platform is based on the use of the best compatible TR-FRET pair available on the market:

  • Long-lifetime and highly stable Europium chelate (Eu) as the donor fluorophore
  • Small, unique far-red fluorophore (FR) as the acceptor

Resulting in an exceptional spectral compatibility and TR-FRET signal at 665nm.

In addition, the high resistance of the Eu chelate to photobleaching and very long signal stability allows the reading of assays as many times as needed.

These long-lived fluorescent signals are read in a time resolved manner to: minimize assay interference, which increases assay performance.

For all THUNDER™ assays, the antibody pair are rigorously selected based on their target specificity and the final concentration of fluorophore-labeled antibodies are carefully optimized to further minimize assay background and maximize the S/B ratio.

Discover the broad THUNDER™ TR-FRET product range

Simple and rapid detection of either a specific phosphorylated target protein (Phospho-protein kit) and/or total protein in cell lysates (Total protein kit). All kits includes positive contols.
(e.g : Phospho SLP76 / EGFR / STAT6 / AKT…)

Cell Signalling Assay Kits

Assays to easy and quickly quantitate pro-inflammatory human cytokines in cell supernatants (e.g. IFN / IL-2 / IL-6…) Biomarker assay kits

These assay kits provide a simple, rapid, robust and affordable tool to measure intracellular cAMP changes following G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) activation
