Upstate Group Expands Scottish Kinase Production and Screening Facility

NEW YORK, March 8 (GenomeWeb News) - Upstate Group, a subsidiary of Serologicals, today opened its newly expanded facility for kinase production and screening in Dundee, Scotland.

 

The new facility will generate and support Upstate's kinase screening panel, which provides quantitative characterization of compounds against a panel of 191 kinases in optimized assays. Upstate said that it plans to add more than 100 new kinases to the panel in 2005.

 

A Serologicals spokesperson told GenomeWeb News that although no new employees have been hired for the expanded facility, the company plans to increase its Dundee-based workforce from about 75 to more than 100 by the end of 2005.
