Cell Signaling Technology and LI-COR to Validate, Co-Market Cellular Assays

NEW YORK, June 1 (GenomeWeb News) - Cell Signaling Technology and LI-COR Biosciences said today that they have signed a joint marketing and validation agreement for CST's antibody reagents used with LI-COR's cellular assays.


The companies said they will validate LI-COR's In-Cell Western cellular imaging assays with CST's phospho-specific antibodies, which target signaling molecules such as kinases and apoptosis regulators. The firms plan to develop a set of validated assays for therapeutically relevant signaling pathway proteins that will allow customers to measure phosphorylation of these proteins in the cell.


The companies will validate the assays on LI-COR's Odyssey infrared imaging system.
