Nexus, Bruker Renew Protein Crystallography Marketing Agreement

NEW YORK, May 5 (GenomeWeb News) - Nexus Biosystems said today that it has renewed an existing agreement with Bruker AXS under which Bruker AXS will continue to globally market its Crystal Farm line of protein crystallography products.


The Crystal Farm product line includes a high-resolution imaging system as well as system-control and image-analysis modules.


Nexus Biosystems was formed in December 2005 by the management buy-out of certain assets from Discovery Partners.


Nexus acquired Discovery Partners' Crystal Farm automated protein crystallization business, as well as its IRORI chemical synthesis systems business and Universal Store compound storage systems business.


Discovery Partners and Bruker AXS initially entered into a distribution agreement for the Crystal Farm product line in 2003.
