OMass Technologies secures INNOVATE UK funding in collaboration with the University of Oxford

June 15, 2018

Oxford, 15 June 2017 – OMass Technologies (“OMass”), a biotechnology company using structural mass spectrometry to drive drug discovery, today announced that it has secured an Innovate UK Grant of £461,000.

The funds have been awarded to develop a sample delivery platform for analysing intact receptor-drug complexes using mass spectrometry (MS). The project is being run in collaboration with the laboratory of OMass founder, Prof Dame Carol Robinson at the University of Oxford. The new platform holds promise of being able to automate native MS screening efforts, using picomole amounts of material for each acquisition. A recent publication in Angewandte Chemie from Prof. Robinson’s research group demonstrate a range of potential applications for the technology.

OMass specialises in applying state-of-the-art mass spectrometry platforms to characterising intact protein assemblies. By providing both access to technology and expertise through collaborations with world-leading pharmaceutical companies, the company is focussed on studying some of the most challenging protein targets in drug discovery.
