About Denator

Denator develops and sells products that stabilize biological tissues and fluids from the moment of sampling. Stabilization and standardization of sampling processes upstream significantly enhances the quality of data obtained from analytical techniques used downstream. In proteomic and peptidomic investigations, enhanced data quality increases the reliability of data interpretation and can reveal novel proteins and peptides that would be lost or undetectable when using conventional preparation techniques. Based upon the company’s proprietary heat-inactivation technology platform, Denator is developing solutions that enable scientists to stop sample degradation instantly and maintain the stability of sample components throughout the analytical workflow. Established in 2004, Denator is headquartered at the Biotech Center in Gothenburg, Sweden. For more information visit: or contact:
