Promega

The companies plan to co-develop a genomic DNA isolation system for large-volume blood samples.

Promega's luciferase reporters will be used in SABiosciences' assays.

The company purchased its partner in bioluminescent technologies.

Terms of the deal, which will run for "at least" the next six months, call for Promega to provide certain of its cell-based assays and instruments, and for Stemina to provide its expertise growing and monitoring hESCs.

Promega's ability to make hepatocytes is limited, so it made sense to partner with a company such as Celsis IVT that specializes in providing cells and other in vitro testing products, a Promega official said.
