Charles River Labs to Shut Down Proteomics Service Joint Venture with Proteome Systems

NEW YORK, Dec. 9 (GenomeWeb News) - Charles River Laboratories will close its proteomics joint venture with Proteome Systems, the company said yesterday.

 

The company decided to close Charles River Proteomic Sevices after less than two years of operation because it "has not achieved its strategic goals," according to a company statement.

 

The closure is part of a reorganization of Charles River's Worcester-based division and the integration of its preclinical services organization.
