NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Cambridge Research Biochemicals will distribute Bio-Nobile Products and Services' QuickAllAssay labeling reagents under a deal announced today.
The reagents are for labeling proteins, antibodies, and small molecules with a Europium chelate. According to CRB, the reagents are "unique" as only one kit is needed to label all assay formats including TR FRET (Time-Resolved Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer) and QRET (Quenched Resonance Energy Transfer assays), as well as separation-based enhanced time-resolved fluorescence assays.
QuickAllAssay kits can offer dual and triple label separation-based assays, CRB said, adding that lanthanides offer the possibility of creating multi-label measurements within the same well, making them "the perfect choice of label" for building such assays.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"We believe having a unique kit for both homogeneous and separation assays which is significantly more sensitive and has a broader dynamic range in one easy to use kit will be of significant benefit to researchers," CRB Commercial Director Emily Humphrys said in a statement.
Based in Cleveland, UK, CRB manufactures and supplies specialized custom peptides and antibodies. Bio-Nobile is headquartered in Turku, Finland and manufactures, sells, and distributes sample preparation and data mining products targeting the genomics, proteomics, drug discovery, clinical chemistry, and cell biology markets.
