The next generation of protein interaction assays

“Next Interaction’s NGIS screening with mutant and wild-type version of a gene implicated in hearing disorders revealed distinct interactions that may underlie observed phenotypes. These initial findings were crucial to our current research.”
Nicolas Grillet, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Stanford University, USA
“With Next Interactions we were able to map candidate interactors to a novel protein epitope, allowing us to reach pivotal conclusions for our project. Great customer care and turnaround!”
Gregor Andelfinger, MD, FRCPC, Université of Montréal, Canada
“Next Interactions is the ideal partner in molecular engineering and screening of synthetic proteins.  This is an excellent team with such dedication, knowledge and enthusiasm.“
Shuguang Zhang, Ph.D., Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

Next Generation Screening and Precision Mapping (NGIS) Services for Protein-Protein Interactions

Next Interactions, Inc. is a proteomics services company that delivers more complete, sensitive, and precise measurements of protein-protein interactions to our clients in the biopharmaceutical and agricultural fields. Our Next Generation Interaction Screening and Precision Mapping platform technology (NGIS) combines yeast two hybrid with next generation sequencing  (NGS-Y2H), bringing conventional yeast two hybrid to the level of mass spectrometry approach thus perfectly complementing it. Our NGIS platform integrates the latest innovations in sequencing, yeast-based protein interaction mapping techniques, and quantitative cell-based reporters. Using cloud-based data delivery, our quantitative protein-protein interaction screens give scientists information-rich data sets with visualizations and bioinformatics analyses that are clear and actionable.

Our mission is to bring the most precise, reliable and comprehensive tool to answer your protein interactions questions, whether precision mapping of known functional interactions, screening for novel protein interactions for basic research, in search of a new drug target, or high throughput compound screening for disrupting known interactions. Using our assays, you would need to do less validation of the protein hits downstream. Ultimately, we accelerate the R&D process for you, save you time & money and get you the results you need.

What are a protein-protein interactions or PPIs?

Protein–protein interactions are the physical contacts of high specificity established between two or more protein molecules. Protein-protein interactions fundamentally underlie the function of biological systems.

Why does measuring protein-protein interactions matter?

Measuring protein-protein interactions is central to understanding the biological basis of disease and for enabling biotechnology to produce products ranging from safer and more effective therapeutics to next-generation foods, materials, and fuels.


Protein Interaction Screening Challenges

Understanding protein interactions can be powerful, but conventional protein interaction screens needed to be improved. Why?

Interaction Coverage

Complete coverage of the interaction space requires analyzing thousands of interaction pairs.

Quantitative measurements are needed to assess the significance of the results.

Conventional Y2H results in too many false positives. Repetition of screens and background controls for statistical rigor reduces false positives.
