Plexera Signs Early-Access Customer for ProteomicProcessor

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Plexera said today it has inked an agreement with an undisclosed early-access customer for its antibody discovery system, which it expects to launch in May 2008. 
Plexera said the partner, a therapeutic antibody company, intends to purchase one of the ProteomicProcessor Systems when the platform is commercially available.
The company said the system combines surface plasmon resonance technology with microarray multiplex capabilities to detect and monitor biomolecular binding kinetics for as many as 5,000 antigen-antibody interactions in one run.
Plexera, a subsidiary of Lumera, said its platform combines antibody screening and analysis of binding properties, concentration, and kinetics into a single process that can help speed up drug discovery research.
