Kreatech Says ISB Collaboration Will Result in New Labeling Kits

NEW YORK, Sept. 21 (GenomeWeb News) - An ongoing collaboration between Kreatech Biotechnology and the Institute of Systems Biology will result in two new nucleic acid labeling kits, the Dutch company said today.


ISB has optimized Kreatech's kits, which are based on its Universal Linkage System technology, for bacterial expression profiling and chromatin immunoprecipitation microarray (ChIP-on-chip) assays.


Brent Keller, Kreatech's vice president of commercial applications, told GenomeWeb News today that the company "will be coming out with ULS kits for these applications" based on the ISB collaboration. Keller did not provide a timeline for the commercial release of the new kits, however.


The company previously released kits for array comparative genome hybridization applications and gene-expression analysis.


Amsterdam-based Kreatech recently opened a US location in San Diego.
