Partnership to commercialize multiplex biomarker kits for life science research.

Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. and Myriad RBM, Inc. have announced that they have partnered to develop and distribute high-quality immunoassay kits.

Under the terms of the agreement, Myriad RBM grants Bio-Rad exclusive distribution rights, for research purposes, to the largest catalog of quantitative multiplexed immunoassays currently available to run on the Bio-Plex® 200, Bio-Plex® 3D, and Bio-Plex® MAGPIX™ instruments.

Myriad RBM's assays address researchers' needs for multiplex testing of samples with very low volumes when studying toxicology, oncology, immunology, and cardiovascular and other diseases. The new assays expand Bio-Rad's current suite of assays.

"Together we are able to provide hundreds of new biomarkers for both human and non-human panels to our Bio-Plex multiplex immunoassay system menu," said Brad Crutchfield, Bio-Rad Vice President and Group Manager, Life Science Group.

Crutchfield continued, "Moving forward, Myriad RBM and Bio-Rad will collaborate to design new products to meet the evolving requirements of our customers."

"This agreement combines Myriad RBM's industry-leading menu of multiplexed immunoassays with Bio-Rad's unrivaled global commercial distribution capabilities," said Craig Benson, President of Myriad RBM.

Benson continued, "Our partnership with Bio-Rad will help researchers and clinicians on the front lines of medicine to develop biomarker profiles that may predict, detect, or monitor disease progression in an effort to optimize treatment and improve patient care."
