Strategic Diagnostics to Supply Antibodies for SAIC, NCI Proteomic Studies

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Strategic Diagnostics said yesterday that it will provide monoclonal antibodies for a proteomic study being conducted by Science Applications International Corporation – Frederick and the National Cancer Institute.
SDI’s antibodies will be used as reference reagents for the Proteomics Reagents & Resources component of the National Cancer Institute’s Clinical Proteomic Technologies for Cancer initiative.
“As the study of proteins increases in importance to the research community, we foresee a continued and sustained need for SDI’s expertise in antibodies as they continue to be the most widely used tools for understanding the molecular dynamics underlying disease,” said Matthew Knight, SDI’s president and CEO, in a statement.
