Emma and Beattie attended and presented at the NSF SBIR/STTR Phase I Grantee Workshop held on March 19th-21st, 2018 in Arlington, VA. The workshop included featured speakers, entrepreneurial networking, presentations, and the Phase I “Beat-the-Odds Boot Camp”. The NSF Boot Camp provides an immersive experience that pushes companies to develop stronger business models, market strategies, […]
PurSolutions, LLC financially contributed to the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA to help support the Motility and Cytoskeleton subgroup chaired by Carolyn Moores and Kristen Verhey.
Emma was invited to speak on behalf of life science startups in Tennessee to the Tennessee General Assembly Business and Utilities committee. She shared our story, successes, and hurdles encountered as a small business in the life science industry.
Good policy is critical to building the life science industry in Tennessee. Whether it be practical regulatory processes or access to capital, Life Science Tennessee and PurSolutions want to help shape the conversation and make our voices heard. During the annual LST “Day on the Hill” we shared our story with legislators and demonstrated how […]
PurSolutions, LLC opened its doors at the Cumberland Emerging Technologies (CET) Life Sciences Center in Nashville, TN. The CET Life Sciences Center is a business incubator facility that offers flexible wet lab, dry lab, and office space, as well as equipment and infrastructure to early-stage biomedical companies with a mission to help promising life sciences […]
PurSolutions, LLC was awarded funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop novel STEM education products that bridge the gap between biology and engineering. This project aims to encourage students to think on both the microscale and macroscale, and ask how they can harness molecular/biological principles to solve practical problems.
PurSolutions, LLC launched a subscription plan for lyophilized reagents coined “Recurring Reagent™.” Upon witnessing the frustrations and delays that researchers face in navigating their institutional procurement systems, PurSolutions designed this service to streamline the ordering process for its customers while also providing access to deep product discounts.
PurSolutions, LLC financially contributed to the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) Motile and Contractile Systems to help support the participation of students and postdocs with limited resources.
PurSolutions, LLC partnered with Biomol GmbH to distribute products internationally. Biomol is renowned for their curated collection of life science reagents from specialized manufacturers and exemplary logistical support. This partnership represents significant progress towards the goal of making cytoskeletal proteins easily accessible to all researchers.
PurSolutions, LLC added tubulin conjugated with Biotin-XX to its product line to cater to biophysicists and nanotechnologists studying self-assembling polymers. Tubulin functionalized with biotin permits immobilization of microtubules on streptavidin-coated solid surfaces such as glass coverslips and beads. As such, biotinylated tubulin is useful in a number of applications including in vitro optical traps, molecular […]
PurSolutions, LLC added two varieties of purified actin protein to its portfolio: Ultra-Pure Actin and Pure Actin. Differing in their degree of purity, these actin products give customers control over protein quality and price. This represents significant progress toward the goal of creating a focused product line of complementary reagents that cater to cytoskeletal researchers.
PurSolutions, LLC launched a new website focused on straightforward navigation and insightful content. Complete with protocols, datasheets, quote request forms, and a help desk, www.PureSoluble.com serves to directly link the company and its customers. The domain name, as well as the company name, speak to the purity and solubility of the cytoskeletal protein products.
PurSolutions, LLC added tubulin conjugated with Alexa Fluor® dyes to its product line with microscopists and biophysicists in mind. Tubulin functionalized with fluorescent dyes allows for optimal visualization of microtubules in real time, and is useful in a number of applications including in vitro microtubule gliding assays, single molecule motor assays, speckle microscopy in xenopus […]
PurSolutions, LLC emerged on the scene of life science suppliers with its offering of Cycled Tubulin. Purified from bovine neuronal tissue by subsequent rounds of polymerization and depolymerization, Cycled Tubulin boasts higher purity, activity, and solubility than any other tubulin protein product on the market. Cytoskeletal researchers that previously avoided commercial tubulin suppliers are now […]
PurSolutions, LLC was formed by co-founders Prashant Singh, Beattie Sturgill, and Dr. Emma Sturgill. PurSolutions was founded on a deep-rooted fascination with the cytoskeleton or the intracellular network of self-assembling protein filaments. The mission of PurSolutions is two-fold: supply premium quality cytoskeletal proteins as easily accessible reagents and harness the cytoskeleton for self-assembling materials and […]
