SYGNIS AG Signs Supply Agreement with US Biological for the Lightning-Link Antibody Labelling Technology
News Nov 28, 2017
Heikki Lanckriet, CEO and CSO of SYGNIS AG, commented: “We are delighted that US Biological has chosen Lighting-Link® as its preferred method for antibody labelling. The technology has clear advantages in terms of simplicity and reproducibility, which will ultimately benefit US Biological’s customers by increasing the range of products available.”
US Biological is a global manufacturer and distributor of bioreagents, offering world-wide distribution of over 1,000,000 antibodies, biochemicals, biologicals, cell culture media, research kits and molecular biology bioreagents. The Company will use Lightning-Link as its preferred antibody conjugation technology to expand its existing catalogue by enabling the production of additional labels, and allowing the company to address a broader range of markets. In addition to core labels for the Lightning-Link range (horseradish peroxidase, alkaline phosphatase, and Fluorescein), the agreement gives US Biological the option to access the full range of Innova-branded products, including Europium and gold nanoparticles.
Lightning-Link antibody and protein labelling technology provides the world’s fastest, easiest to use and most efficient method of antibody conjugation, offering highly stable antibody and protein conjugation with only 30 seconds hands-on time, and no separation steps. Lightning-Link can make a range of assays easier, quicker and more sensitive, and contribute to reduced project costs. Lightning-Link technology offers consistently high quality and easy scalability, with excellent batch-to-batch reproducibility, leading to reduced manufacturing costs.

Human Malaria Parasites Grown for the First Time in Dormant FormNews
One of the biggest obstacles to eradicating malaria is a dormant form of the parasite which is resistant to most antimalarial drugs and can reawaken years later, causing disease relapse. Researchers have shown they can grow the dormant parasite in engineered human liver tissue for several weeks, allowing them to closely study how the parasite becomes dormant, what vulnerabilities it may have, and how it springs back to life.READ MORE
Innovative Nanomaterial Made From Natural SubstancesNews
Protein nanofibres often have outstanding properties such as a high stability, biodegradability, or antibacterial effect. Artificially creating these fibres is not easy, much less assigning them specific functions. That and how fibres with new properties can be successfully created is now being reported by materials scientists in a new study.READ MORE
