Scienion, Anteo Partner on Reagents for Protein Microarrays

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Scienion and Australian reagent maker Anteo Technologies today announced a partnership to develop reagents to improve the functionality and shelf-life of protein microarrays.

Under the terms of the agreement, the partners will combine Anteo's Mix&Go surface consumables with Scienion's precision spotting sciFlexarrayer. The first products the firms will collaborate on are reagents for activated glass and polymer slides.

The expertise of both companies is "very complementary," Scienion CEO Holger Eickhoff said in a statement. "Anteo's new coating technology will enable us to provide an even higher level of customer application support via unprecedented combinations of materials, surfaces, and deposition technology. The perfect pairing of the right surface with the right dispensing is key to a successful application where a biological molecule is deposited to become attached to a surface."

Financial and other details of the agreement were not disclosed.

Scienion's sciFlexarrayer is an ultra low-volume liquid handling instrument. Last month, the German firm partnered with QuantuMDx to combine the sciFlexarrayer with QuantuMDx's multiplexed nanowire array technology.
