Harnessing Cytoskeletal Proteins for Self-Assembling Innovations
PurSolutions is a startup biotechnology company located in Nashville, TN at the Cumberland Emerging Technologies Life Science Center. We operate under the premise that nature has devised the most powerful and efficient mechanisms imaginable, and work at the intersection of biology and engineering to harness natural phenomena for synthetic applications. Our focus is on the cytoskeleton, or the cellular network of self-assembling protein filaments. We work to supply premium quality cytoskeletal proteins as easily accessible reagents and harness the cytoskeleton for self-assembling materials and devices.
We are resolved to providing cytoskeletal proteins as easily accessible and reliable reagents for researchers in the academic, pharmaceutical, and industrial sectors. As the cytoskeleton functions at the center of many essential eukaryotic processes, it serves as an entry point for the therapeutic intervention of a number of human diseases. We relieve researchers of the time requirements and uncertainties that accompany tubulin and actin purifications by offering a focused product line with an emphasis on quality and consistency. Our manufacturing facility grants us a strong command over the production pipeline as well as full transparency into the process. Researchers that have avoided commercial suppliers of cytoskeletal proteins in the past are trusting our products in their experiments. We take that to be the ultimate testament of quality. Ultimately, by offering quality products and outstanding customer service, we aim to accelerate cytoskeletal research and drug discovery efforts.
Research & Development
Cytoskeletal proteins polymerize by a process termed “self-assembly”. Crafted by billions of years of evolution, this natural phenomenon represents one of the most precise, scalable, and tunable manufacturing strategies. Our mission is to harness self-assembly for synthetic applications in order to engineer electronics, robotics, and medicines as robust as nature itself.
