Celliance Acquires Gene-Expression Technology from Innovata

NEW YORK, Oct. 3 (GenomeWeb News) - Celliance has acquired a gene-expression technology from Innovata for an undisclosed amount, the wholly owned Serologicals subsidiary said today.

 

The so-called ubiquitous chromatin opening element technology allows researchers to improve the yield, consistency, and stability of protein production in cultured mammalian cells. Other applications include gene therapy, transgenics, and the generation of cell lines for drug screening, according to Celliance.

 

The technology has been licensed by a number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, including Medarex and Maxygen.
