The researchers are currently incorporating new technology that they say will shave an additional two to three weeks off their antibody generation workflow.

It will purchase AxioMx for $20 million followed by additional performance-based payments totaling up to $25 million to be paid over the next five years.

The deal gives Abcam exclusive access to more than 1,800 human diploid and haploid cell lines from Horizon's X-MAN collection.

Abcam was encouraged to buy Firefly BioWorks by its customers, who are more frequently complementing their protein analysis work with miRNA studies.

The all-cash deal gives Abcam access to Firefly's multiplex assay biomarker-detection platform.

Abcam, a Cambridge, UK-based provider of antibody microarrays, this week announced a series of management changes.

AB Sciex this week launched its new Academic Partnership Program, an initiative designed to support academic researchers in the 'omics fields.

Abcam paid $4.2 million in cash and issued $1.8 million in company stock for MitoSciences, which develops mitochondrial antibodies and assays.

The guidelines set reporting standards for researchers using column chromatography, capillary electrophoresis, and gel image informatics and also for commercial affinity reagents like antibodies, which have posed problems in proteomics research due to the lack of information provided by manufacturers.

Asterand will identify antibodies and characterize them for Abcam to sell for human use.
