NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Cisbio Bioassays said today that under a new partnership it has integrated Promega's protein labeling technology for use with its Tag-Lite platform.
The Tag-Lite platform combines homogenous time-resolved fluorescence and cell protein labeling technologies. The French firm said that researchers will now be able to use Promega's HaloTag orthogonal system for labeling protein in living cells and in vitro on the Tag-Lite platform, providing researchers with an additional tool for cell surface receptor heterodimerization.
The HaloTag protein is derived from a prokaryotic hydrolase and it can allow for highly specific labeling of expressed fusion proteins.
The combination of the HaloTag and Tag-lite offerings provides industry and academic researchers with "a simple, rapid, and robust technology for cell surface receptor investigation," François Degorce, Cisbio's director of marketing and communications, said in a statement.
