NEW YORK, April 12 (GenomeWeb News) - Fqubed said today that it has received from Pharmacopeia a worldwide exclusive license to intellectual property related to multiplexed fluid dispensing through a novel valveless delivery system, fluid processing, and automated soft materials product collection.

 

Fqubed said that it has also licensed from Pharmacopeia two high-throughput experimentation instruments related to the technology. The company added that the technology was invented to streamline a solvent processing step in Pharmacopeia's discovery chemistry workflow, but that new application possibilities have been identified.
