RayBiotech and AnaSpec Sign Licensing Agreement for HiLyte™ Dyes
News Sep 16, 2008
AnaSpec and RayBiotech have announced a licensing agreement that will allow RayBiotech to label antibodies with AnaSpec HiLytePlus™ and HiLyte Fluor™ dyes and integrate into protein and antibody arrays.
HiLytePlus™ and HiLyte Fluor™ are AnaSpec's proprietary series of high performance fluorescent dyes optimized for long wavelength biomarker labeling.
"RayBiotech is a respected provider of innovative products for life science research," noted Dr. Anita Hong, AnaSpec's president. "In collaboration with RayBiotech, we are pleased to extend the performance advantages of our HiLyte™ dyes to a broader spectrum of researchers."
"Knowing the full spectrum of fluorescent dye options available, we have incorporated the HiLytePlus™ and HiLyte Fluor™ series of fluorescent dyes into our antibodies, protein and antibody arrays," stated Dr. Ray (Ruo-Pan) Huang, Ray Biotech’s president. "We are pleased to work with AnaSpec to add the additional value of high-performance labeling options and detection method to our customers."
Inside cells, where DNA is packed tightly in the nucleus and rigid proteins keep intricate transport systems on track, some molecules can simply self-organize, find one another in crowded spaces, and quickly coalesce into droplets. Now, new research shows how proteins that organize into liquid droplets inside cells make certain biological functions possible.
About 422 million people around the world, including more than 30 million Americans, have diabetes. Obesity is the most significant risk factor for type 2 diabetes. yet about 30 percent of obese people do not develop type 2 diabetes or other metabolic conditions. New research aims to understand on a cellular level, how this separation occurs.READ MORE
