Unchained Labs just can't get enough, acquires Avid Nano, rocks out the new pUNk!

PLEASANTON, Calif., July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Unchained Labs just can't get enough biologics stability tools, today announcing its acquisition of Avid Nano. Avid Nano designs, develops and manufactures highly sensitive dynamic light scattering (DLS) systems.   

Also today, Unchained Labs UNcaged the pUNk, the world's smallest, fastest and easiest to use protein sizing system. The pUNk is a high-performance DLS system that measures a protein's hydrodynamic size, size distribution, aggregation population and molecular weight. Its speed and ease of use is all made possible by the low-cost BladeCell consumable, which is single use and only requires 5 μL of sample. The pUNk's killer sensitivity comes from a proprietary optical design and distinct use of algorithms.

The Unchained Labs biologics stability tools line-up is quickly becoming one of the most enabling portfolios out there. First they nabbed the UNit, the only system that can simultaneously measure melting and aggregation onset temperatures. Next they captured the HUNK, the first fully automated platform that can predict if and how aggregation will occur. Today they snagged the pUNk, a highly sensitive tool for measuring protein size and aggregation.

"Wow! We have now acquired 3 product lines in 3 acquisitions in less than 5 months and we aren't even close to done," said Tim Harkness, CEO and Founder of Unchained Labs. "With this unique portfolio of tools we believe we can truly help researchers UNlock biologics stability. "

"I really look forward to joining the Unchained team," said Ken Cunningham, Founder and CEO of Avid Nano. "DLS fits perfectly in the Unchained Labs portfolio and I am optimistic about where we can take the technology next."
