KPL Licenses Expression Pathology s Protein-Extraction Tech for Use in Upcoming Products

NEW YORK, July 21 (GenomeWeb News) - As part of a license-and-supply agreement, Kirkegaard and Perry Laboratories (KPL) has gained exclusive rights to market protein immunodetection products based on Expression Pathology's Liquid Tissue technology in the life-science research market, the companies said today in a statement.

 

KPL will integrate Expression Pathology's technology, which enables protein extraction from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue samples, with its own immunodetection reagents, the companies said. The products will allow customers to create reverse-phase arrays and dot blots, and to characterize and validate protein biomarkers, the companies added.

 

KPL said it will launch protein-extraction and -detection products resulting from the partnership "later this year."
