Nuclea Biotechnologies

Headed by Nuclea's former Founder and CEO Patrick Muraca, NanoMolecular aims to commercialize cancer diagnostics including Nuclea's Her2/neu assay.

Nuclea's trustee has requested the court approve sale of its assets, which failed to sell at auction, to a firm run by Nuclea's former CEO Patrick Muraca.

Set for Jan. 18, 2017, the sale will feature assets including its HER-2/neu assay, a blood-based test for monitoring women with metastatic breast cancer.

Under the partnership the two companies will develop assays for insulin, proinsulin, and c-peptide on clinical sample cohorts at both Nuclea and IRCM's facilities.

The company will focus largely on applying mass spec to relatively established protein markers for which existing immunoassay-based tests have poor performance.

The arrangement will join Nuclea's expertise in proteomics with Aelan's genomics know-how.

The firm is now clinically validating a mass spec-based test for quantifying native insulin and its therapeutic analogs and another test for type 2 diabetes. 

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Thermo Fisher Scientific and Nuclea Biotechnologies said this week they are collaborating on mass spec-based assays for quantification of native insulin and its therapeutic analogs.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Nuclea Biotechnologies and Thermo Fisher Scientific said today that they are collaborating on multiplexed mass spec assays for quantifying native insulin and its therapeutic analogs.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Nuclea Biotechnologies today said it has inked an agreement with Clinical Reference Laboratory to validate three of Nuclea's tests.
