Reaction Biology Wins $940K SBIR for Radioisotope Microarray Kinase Screening Tech

NEW YORK, June 20 (GenomeWeb News) - Reaction Biology said today that the National Cancer Institute has awarded it a $940,000 SBIR grant to create a kinase profiling and high-throughput screening method using radioisotopes and microarrays.


Specifically, the grant will be used to adapt current well-plate radioisotope methods to Reaction Biology's DiscoveryDot nanoliter screening platform.


"Due to our nanoscale format, the amount of radioisotope used in the process should be minimal," Reaction Biology CTO Haiching Ma said in a statement. "This should lead to far fewer disposal and handling problems, and reduced cost overall."
