NextGen Sciences Licenses Protein Production Technology from Oxford Brookes University

NEW YORK, Jan. 10 (GenomeWeb News) - NextGen Sciences has licensed a new protein production technology from OxfordBrookesUniversityand is making it commercially available, the Cambridgeshire, UK-based company said today.

 

The technology, called FlashBAC, speeds up the production of recombinant proteins in insect cells. It does so by eliminating the need to separate recombinant baculoviruses from parental viruses.

 

FlashBAC is immediately available to customers, a NextGen Sciences spokesman told GenomeWeb News.

 

The company did not disclose financial information about the licensing deal.
