NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Millipore and the University of Dundee have signed a five-year extension of an exclusive license agreement to market cell signaling materials for research applications.
The collaboration began in 1995 between the university and Upstate Biotechnology, which is now part of Millipore. Research tools derived from the collaboration will be sold to researchers worldwide by Millipore, which already sells reagents derived from the collaboration as part of its KinaseProfiler and PhosphataseProfiler selectivity screening services.
As part of the extended license, Millipore will have access to new research products developed by researchers at the Medical Research Council Protein Phosphorylation Unit, which, in collaboration with the University of Dundee, has developed specific kinase and phosphatase methods and reagents for studying cell signaling.
Financial terms of the licensing pact were not disclosed.
