Caliper to Market Molecular Probes' Fluorescence Kits for In Vivo Imaging

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Invitrogen subsidiary Molecular Probes and Caliper Life Sciences plan to develop and distribute fluorescence labeling kits to work with Caliper’s in vivo imaging systems, Caliper said today.
 
The kits are produced by Molecular Probes and will be marketed by Caliper. They use Invitrogen dyes to leverage the in vivo system to identify and tag particular antibodies, proteins, and peptides.
 
Caliper said each kit allows for three conjugations and will work on 60-90 small animals. The kits also allow for in vivo assessment of the spread of disease in real-time, Caliper said.  
 
Financial terms of the deal were not released.
