Proteome analysis

Fermentation is a widely used technique using enzymes and microorganisms to change a substrate into the desired product. Fermentation for alternative proteins is an industry in rapid growth. Various fermentation methods are used in the food industry, e.g., traditional fermentation in cheese production, biomass fermentation for mycelium-based steak, and precision fermentation for vegan dairy products. Proteomics can provide various insights into the fermentation process, from investigating the biological mechanism to estimating parameters for the process.

If you’d like to learn more, we are happy to discuss your project and help you get the most out of your fermentation analysis.

Let’s discuss your project

Guiding you from sample to biology

Our experts are ready to help you with your fermentation project. Ideally, we set up an online meeting where we get to learn about your project. Here, we discuss the different options to reach your aim.

Sample preparation and Mass Spectrometry

A tailored workflow for fermentation analysis

Mass spectrometry offers many different opportunities to investigate different areas of the fermentation process. Our experts will tailor your workflow, as we most often experience that the methods are vastly different. At Biogenity, we will work with you to narrow down which methods are relevant for your research questions and discuss the potential results, ensuring the analysis is tailored to answer the right questions.

Fermentation samples of various forms and content

At Biogenity, we assist in finding the best protein extraction method or conducting the complete extraction for you. If you are trying to investigate different fermentation processes, map a fermentation process or analyze the product, your samples can be of various forms and content. We are transparent in our expectations for the result and risk assessment, allowing you to choose the best strategy for your fermented samples.

The latest equipment from Thermo Fisher Scientific

We pride ourselves on being able to offer the latest equipment on the market. Our collaborating proteomics laboratory has the latest equipment from Thermo Fisher, ensuring a deep coverage. If you’d like to see the complete platform list, follow this link.

The right approach and instrument for the task

At Biogenity, we offer targeted and discovery-based options for mass spectrometry of fermentation products. We can help investigate a target product, measure the concentration, or discover and map the fermentation process. With instruments from Thermo Fisher Scientific, including the robust Exactive Classic, the most recent Orbitrap Exploris 480, and the Orbitrap Eclipse Tribrid Mass Spectrometer, Biogenity can ensure you the right instrument for your fermentation analysis.

Data analysis, including report, figures, and tables

Visualisation of your fermentation analysis

Data analysis is where you get the overview of your fermentation analysis. You will receive an easy-to-follow report describing the data analysis and results hereof, step-by-step, together with a folder containing all tables and figures. To ensure that you have the material needed, we always provide a vast number of figures and tables.

Data analysis to display the area of interest

Biogenity will tailor your data analysis, whether the focus is biological process mapping, process optimization, concentration calculations, or comparison of different fermentation methods. Our data analysis will get you the results you need to evaluate your fermentation.

Interactive plots to highlight signaling pathways

With our bioinformatic data analysis, you will also get interactive plots that allow you to explore the signaling pathways that are enriched in your data. It lets you take the regulated proteins into perspective, showing which biological pathways or biological processes are potentially up or down-regulated. This helps you get a good understanding of what is happening in the different conditions.

Bioinformatical data analysis of fermentation data

Bioinformatics allows for much deeper data analysis of your fermentation data to identify pathways, biological processes, molecular functions, cellular components that are changing in your data. The bioinformatic data analysis includes enrichment analysis, comparative figures, and network mapping.

Delivery and discussion

Delivered directly to your inbox

When your fermentation analysis is ready, we deliver it directly to your inbox. Your data and reports are easy to access and secured with encryption and password protection.

You can receive your sample leftovers sent by courier, or Biogenity can safely destroy them after project completion. It is entirely up to you.

Plant a tree with Biogenity and One Tree Planted

Partnering with One Tree Planted, we want to work towards a brighter future with better treatment for diseases and a healthy planet to enjoy life. For us, our children, grandchildren, and the generations to come.

Biogenity donates a dozen trees for every project delivered to support local communities, reforestation in the Amazon rainforest, and reduce CO2 emissions. See how we are making a difference together.

Post-consultation and discussion

It is important to us that you get the most out of your experiment, which is why we always offer a post-consultation where you can ask all your questions about the results. Together, we ensure that you have the best prerequisite for your further research. The consultation can also be used to explore the next step, whether you are looking to expand the project with additional omics studies or validate the results.

What you can expect:

  • Explanation of the different steps in the sample analysis
  • Discussion of the data
  • Explanation of the different steps in the data analysis
  • Q&A to the report
