    DPX supporting higher education institutions and research facilities see more

    DPX Technologies, a manufacturer of laboratory consumable products for sample preparation, has awarded over $400,000 to researchers over the last several years. This amount is a combination of product donated and money awarded for researchers to use towards travel and presentations for industry specific scientific tradeshows or publications. DPX products have been featured in scientific publications including: Journal of Analytical Toxicology, Journal of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, and Journal of Chromatography.

    DPX manufactures patented sample preparation products and specializes in custom workflows for a diverse client base. The INTipTM products have attracted the attention of researchers for years. “We often get contacted by researchers that want to develop and publish new methods that use our technology. We welcome that collaboration,” says Dr. Kaylee Mastrianni.

    DPX wants to take a formalized approach in supporting higher education institutions and research facilities by awarding research grants to support the use of INTip sample preparation products as tools for education or discovery. DPX now has a form on their website to apply for research grants.

    Grants will be awarded based on the novelty and scientific impact of the research described in the application. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year by the DPX scientific review board and recipients can be awarded up to $1000 per year. DPX Technologies will notify the winners by email and/or telephone. Multiple forms may be submitted by the same applicant, college/university or facility as long as the need demonstrated is for different applications.

    DPX publishes new application note see more

    DPX recently published a new application note “Automated Method for High-Throughput LC-MS/MS Quantitation of Testosterone from Serum: An Improved Validated Method” where a new ultra pure grade filtration tip was introduced. The method for the extraction of testosterone from serum used Low Porosity Filtration Tips- Ultra Pure (LPFT-UP) and incorporated a ZnSOsolution in addition to acetonitrile on a Hamilton Heater Shaker (HHS) for improved recovery and precision during protein precipitation. The LPFT-UP provide a high purity filtration media for methods with very low detection limits.

    Patient samples had a calculated recovery of testosterone at 99.5% with no detected matrix effects. This demonstrates that the use of ZnSO4 and acetonitrile is very efficient in extracting testosterone, and the use of ultra pure grade tips (LPFT-UP) resulted in negligible losses. The introduction of Low Porosity Filtration tips- Ultra Pure provides a new product for low detection level methods.

    “We are really excited to expand our product offering for steroid testing,” said Carmen Adamson, brand manager. DPX plans to expand on the research and development to include a full panel of steroids. “Testosterone imbalance can signal a problem in both men and women. This method provides an accurate and precise tool to aid in that determination,” said Evan DiVirgilio, application scientist. DPX continues to provide methods for efficient sample processing for clinical and forensic laboratories.

    DPX Technologies manufactures patented sample preparation products and specializes in custom workflows for a diverse client base including clinical, forensic, food safety, and pharmaceutical industries. Their products offer INTip™ sample preparation solutions that are compatible with semi-automated and fully automated liquid handling systems. This enables high sample throughput and high laboratory efficiency.
