ProSearch International Australia Pty Ltd
Diabetes, Medical Research, Clinical Trials
ProSearch is a small medical R&D facility dedicated to supporting the medical research community in radioisotopic laboratory procedures such as radioimmunoassay(RIA), radioreceptor assays and autoradiographic localization of receptors and enzymes. We custom radioiodinate (125I) peptides, proteins and other substances, supply or raise specific antibodies including secondaries and develop in-house RIAs for any substance right through to validation if necessary. We also assay samples for research and clinical trials using our suite of previously developed in-house RIAs e.g. AngI, AngII, Ang(1-7), AVP, EGF, ANP, ppANP, PRA, and PRC including tissue renins.
Our association can be collaborative or as a confidential service but as a privately funded facility we must recoup our running and infrastructure costs. Our fee for analysis is $15 per specimen assayed in duplicate against a standard curve in duplicate ($30 for PRA and PRC if the blank is assayed for subtraction). There is a $200 curve set-up fee and $600 custom iodination fee to prepare fresh tracer. This would not be required for subsequent assays during the 4-6 week life of the tracer. We can assay for any other substance e.g. aldosterone, provided you are happy to substitute the iodination fee for the cost of a commercial kit. Samples requiring tissue homogenization, extraction, etc. are subject to a fee of $150 per hour of preparation. All prices are ex GST. Our company is the sole Australian agent for a Swiss company which makes tritiated products and offers a custom tritiation service at very competitive prices.
