NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Thermo Fisher Scientific announced today that it has entered into a collaboration with Jackson ImmunoResearch Laboratories to facilitate the development of fluorescently labeled secondary antibodies for protein research and other applications.
Under the agreement, Jackson will have non-exclusive, global rights to use Thermo’s DyLight fluorescent dyes, which they plan to use in conjunction with Jackson’s secondary antibody line. The dyes are water-soluble, highly fluorescent, and photostable across a range of pH conditions.
Initially, Jackson plans to offer four of Thermo’s DyLight dyes conjugated to nearly 250 affinity-purified secondary antibodies, streptavidin, anti-biotin, anti-digoxin, anti-FITC, and purified immunoglobulins. The company is currently evaluating other DyLight dyes for potential use in its product line.
