NEW YORK, April 3 - Charles River Laboratories International and Proteome Systems have opened a new contract laboratory designed for proteomic research services.
The new services, called Charles River Proteomic Services, will offer proteomic research services on a fee-for-service, contract basis to pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients worldwide. A grand opening of the Worcester, Mass., facility will take place April 29.
The service is the product of a joint venture the two companies created last October. The JV operates from Charles River's Discovery and Development Services facility in Worcester, near Proteome Systems' US base in Woburn. Charles River Laboratories maintains an 80 percent ownership in the JV.
