Lumera Signs Up ISB to Develop Label-Free Protein Array System

NEW YORK, Feb. 14 (GenomeWeb News) - Lumera will collaborate with the Institute for Systems Biology to develop a label-free protein microarray platform, the Bothell, Wash.-based company said today.


The platform will include Lumera's NanoCapture microarrays and its ProteomicProcessor reader, which does not require molecular labels. The new system will enable researchers to perform real-time kinetic measurements of protein-protein, protein-drug, and protein-DNA interactions.


Lumera plans to bring the technology to market "as quickly as possible," according to a company statement.
