Whatman Schleicher & Schuell to Distribute Pepscan Systems Peptide Array

NEW YORK, Jan. 11 (GenomeWeb News) - Whatman Schleicher & Schuell will distribute Pepscan Systems' PepChip kinase substrate array products and services, the companies said today.

 

Whatman, currently based in Keene, NH, will distribute the peptide arrays in both the US and Europe, a company spokesperson said. Pepscan is based in The Netherlands.

 

Following its December acquisition of Schleicher & Schuell, Whatman will eventually be relocating its US manufacturing operations to Stanford, Maine, and its US sales and administrative offices to Florham Park, NJ, while maintaining a presence in Europe through Schleicher & Schuell's offices.

 

The PepChip array is a high-density peptide array that enables screening of kinase activity in complex mixtures, substrate profiling of known and unknown kinases, and specificity testing of kinase inhibitors. The chip allows researchers to profile over 80 percent of the human kinome, the companies said.
