Pressure Biosciences, Inc. (South Easton, Massachusetts) has entered into an exclusive patent license agreement with the Battelle Memorial Institute (Columbus, Ohio. A patent application filed by Battelle describes a method and system for improving the analysis of protein samples using an automated, in-line system that employs pressure and a preselected agent to obtain a digested sample faster than current methods without sacrificing sample integrity. According to Pressure Biosciences, combining its pressure cycling technology with the described approach will enable automation of sample preparation techniques and may lead to development of instrumentation that could be integrated with HPLC and mass spectrometry equipment for protein processing from sample preparation to final result.
