“The OpenSPR is being used everyday in our department and we love it because it’s user-friendly, and we get the data we need from our own bench!”

He (Grace) Gu,
Biochemistry, Cellular & Molecular Biology Ph.D. Student, Johns Hopkins University

_Kyinno Biotechnology_Customer_Testimonials

“We spent many hours trying to run our protein-protein interaction on the Biacore with no success. After running the same experiment on the OpenSPR, we immediately got the data we needed.”

Dr. Ning, CEO, Kyinno Biotechnology


“What impressed me most about the OpenSPR was the ease of use and relative low cost combined with a sophisticated, modern technology that was portable and did not require dedicated personnel for its operation.”

Dr. George Espie, 
Professor of Biology, University of Toronto



“OpenSPR offers the perfect combination of performance and affordability, which will accelerate our research while saving our lab money.”

Dr. Thorsten Dieckmann, 
Associate Professor & Associate Chair of Chemistry, University of Waterloo



“The team at Nicoya has been very helpful, promptly answering any questions, helping me analyze data, troubleshooting issues, and helping me learn the ins and outs of how the instruments works. The initial training was very fast and simple.”

Ember Tota,Chemistry Graduate Student, University of California San Diego



“The OpenSPR is a very versatile and affordable system that has allowed us to accurately measure protein-protein and protein-peptide interactions without the need to label the interacting molecules.”

Dr. Guy Guillemette,Associate Professor of Chemistry, University of Waterloo



“The OpenSPR data was critical for getting our research published because it allowed us to experimentally quantify protein-protein interaction, which would otherwise not be possible with pull-down assays. OpenSPR provided us with a cost-effective method to obtain large amounts of accurate data using small amounts of sample!”

Maryam Moazami-Goudarzi, Biology Graduate Student, University of Toronto Mississauga

“Nicoya has a very helpful and insightful training session! After one session, I was able to run my experiments immediately using the LIP chips and look at protein binding to different lipid mixtures. The data is beautiful and the instrument is by far one of the easiest and user-friendly that I have ever used!”

Dr. Tonya N. Zeczycki, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, East Carolina University
