Prodesse Receives Biosearch Technologies License
News Mar 02, 2006
The company has been granted a world-wide, limited right and license to use Biosearch’s proprietary quenchers and fluorophores in DNA probes for commercial applications.
The technology gives Prodesse access to high quality dyes which will help allow the company to further expand development of its reagents that enable labs to develop multiplex real time detection assays.
Commenting on the agreement Dr. Ronald M. Cook, President and Chief Executive Officer of Biosearch said, "We are delighted Prodesse has been successful using our technology in developing reagents useful for labs and we look forward to expanding our relationship even further."
Prodesse’s Chief Science Officer, Dr. Steven Visuri remarked, "We have spent much time and effort finding a dye strategy that would accommodate our 4-plex real time products to work commonly on the Bio-Rad iCycler®, ABI 7500, Corbett Research Rotor-Gene™ 3000 and Cepheid SmartCycler® II."
"Since Biosearch has such a broad menu we have been able to source these products exclusively with them."
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
