AnaSpec to Manufacture Dyes for BD

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – AnaSpec will manufacture and supply Becton Dickinson with fluorescent dyes for labeling of proteins and cells, the San Jose, Calif.-based firm said Thursday.
The dyes that AnaSpec will make for BD are H7, calcein AM, and DilC12(3). The H7 dye is used for general labeling of protein amine groups, while the calcein AM dye is used to fluorescently pre- and post-label viable cells to perform kinetic and endpoint experiments. The DilC12(3) dye is used to label viable cells for assays.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
