Quantum-Si demonstrates a pathway to enable >70% coverage of the human proteome and identification of up to 90% of proteins, including post-translational modifications
Company continues to advance core technology as it moves towards commercialization of its Platinum™ protein sequencing platform later this year
GUILFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– June 1, 2022 — Quantum-Si Incorporated (Nasdaq: QSI) (“Quantum-Si”, “QSI” or the “Company”), a life sciences company marketing single-molecule protein sequencing, announced that Brian Reed, Ph.D., head of research at Quantum-Si, presented an update on the company’s technological advances at the Next-Generation Protein Analysis and Detection, a VIB Tools & Technologies conference, in Ghent, Belgium. The presentation is available in the Investors section of the Quantum-Si website under Events and Presentations.
Dr. Reed discussed progress in Quantum-Si research and development, including the expansion of the technology to interrogate more of the human proteome and its estimated 1,000,000+ proteoforms. This is essential for researchers to better understand how protein changes affect disease states. Reed also provided an overview of Quantum-Si’s protein sequencing technology platform, including Platinum™, which uses a proprietary and novel approach called Time Domain Sequencing™ to accurately decode the order of amino acids in a protein and interrogate changes for identification of a new drug. diagnostic targets and biomarkers. The ability to directly sequence proteins from a variety of sample types will generate new applications in disciplines such as oncology, neurology and cardiology.
“We have invested heavily in protein engineering and directed evolution approaches to accelerate the development of amino acid recognizers and increase the proportion of the proteome that we can detect,” Reed said. “To date, we have made significant progress towards commercial launch, having now demonstrated successful on-chip recognition of 15 of the 20 amino acids. These 15 amino acids represent a pathway to more than 70% coverage of the human proteome, identification of up to 90% of proteins, as well as a better understanding of protein sequence variation and post-translational modifications. Future developments of the platform will increase the accessibility of proteomics studies and enable new discoveries in biological and clinical research.
