Proteomics Start-up Finds Home in Pittsburgh Incubator

NEW YORK, March 4 (GenomeWeb News) - Proteomics start-up ProteoPure is one of four new tenants to move into the Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse, the Pennsylvania-based incubator said today.

 

ProteoPure, which was spun out of CarnegieMellonUniversity, has developed a technology that enables researchers to increase the number of proteins that can be separated and purified for diagnostic and drug-discovery applications. It was founded by LaunchCyte, a two-year old company that "creates, seeds, and harvests" life science companies.
