Predicant Licenses Caliper Microfluidics Technology for Proteomic Tests

NEW YORK, Jan. 6 (GenomeWeb News) - Predicant Biosciences has licensed microfluidics patents from Caliper Life Sciences for use in the analysis of proteins by mass spectrometry, the companies said today.


Under the non-exclusive licensing deal, Predicant, of South San Francisco, Calif., plans to use Caliper's microfluidics technology to separate proteins from blood for diagnostic tests based on protein patterns that it is developing.


The agreement is part of Caliper's new outlicensing strategy, "with the goal of permeating the life sciences, diagnostics and other industries with out microfluidics technologies," Caliper CEO Kevin Hrusovsky said in a company statement.
