KinTek President, Dr. Kenneth A. Johnson

Kenneth Johnson

Founded in 1987 by Dr. Kenneth A. Johnson, KinTek Corporation is the world's leader in precision Stopped-Flow and Quench-Flow instruments for rapid transient reaction kinetics. KinTek Corporation has supplied hundreds of instruments to research laboratories around the world, establishing its leadership in transient kinetics instrumentation.

Dr. Johnson is recognized worldwide as the leader in transient-state kinetic analysis especially as applied to enzyme reaction mechanisms. He is the author of over 160 publications and numerous review articles. His reviews on transient-state kinetics methods have been extremely useful and important to investigators using these methods. In particular, Dr. Johnson's 1992 publication in The Enzymes illuminated the beauty and simplicity of transient-state kinetic analysis, and is highly recommended:

Johnson, K.A. (1992) "Transient State Kinetic Analysis of Enzyme Reaction Pathways." The Enzymes, XX, 1-61.

Dr. Johnsonrecently edited a book in the Oxford University Press Practical Approach Series, entitled, "Kinetic Analysis of Macromolecules". In this text, experts in various fields, many of whom are KinTek users, describe the key kinetic methods needed to examine the functions of proteins and nucleic acids.

Today, KinTek Corporation meets the most demanding standards for research instruments, currently producing several instruments including two flagship instruments, the SF-300X Stopped-Flow, and the RQF-3 Rapid Quench-Flow. These instruments have been designed to provide years of trouble-free use, are backed by a two-year warranty, and are supported by KinTek Corporation's experienced technical factory staff.

As you adventure into the millisecond magic of transient-state kinetics, there are a number of special services available to the customers of KinTek Corporation. Dr. Johnson provides consultation to support your special research needs by providing tutorials on the use of the instruments, workshops, and short courses on the theory and practice of transient-state kinetic methods.
