NEW YORK, Nov. 15 (GenomeWeb News) - Covalys Biosciences and Fisher Biosciences unit Pierce Biotechnology will jointly develop and promote products related to Covalys' SNAP-tag technology, Pierce said today.
Under the agreement, Pierce and Covalys will promote products for protein-chemistry applications. Pierce will develop products based on Covalys' biotin SNAP-tag ligands in combination with its streptavidin and NeutrAvidin-coated microplates.
The Basel, Switzerland-based company's SNAP-tag is a self-labeling protein tag that links chemical probes to any protein of interest without prior purification and with high stability.
