Scienion, Maine Manufacturing Reach Distribution Deal for FAST Array Products

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Scienion and Maine Manufacturing today announced a non-exclusive distribution deal for Maine's FAST protein array products.

The deal includes worldwide marketing of the complete FAST Slide product line, which is built around the nitrocellulose coated FAST Slide. The product line includes the FAST Quant micro ELISA arrays with specific cytokine antibody panels, the Serum Biomarker Chip family of immunoassays for measuring cellular growth proteins, and accessories and consumables.

Financial and other terms of the deal were not announced.

Dortmund, Germany-based Scienion provides systems and services for the contact-free printing of biological and chemical agents for diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, veterinary, plant, and food analytics and research.

Maine, based in Sanford, Maine, provides solutions and specialty manufacturing for biological and immunoassay technologies, as well as plastic, filtration, and membrane technologies. It obtained the exclusive rights from GE to commercialize the FAST Protein Array product line earlier this year, as GenomeWeb Daily News' sister publication BioArray News reported.
