NEW YORK, Dec. 3 (GenomeWeb News) - Protiveris has licensed rights to sensor technologies from UT-Batelle, as part of its development of bioMEMS biochips for protein research, the Rockville, Md. Company said today.
The technologies, developed by scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, allow users to measure biomolecular interactions with microcantilevers, the company said. Protiveris already has biochips that use arrays of microcantilevers as biosensors.
Under the agreement, the company will be working with ORNL scientists to further develop this system, the VeriScan 3000.
"We are extremely pleased to have acquired the commercial rights to these technologies and to be working closely with Oak Ridge National Laboratory on their commercial development," Robert Menzi, Chief Operating Officer of Protiveris, said in a statement.
