InforMax Installs GenoMax Software at AxCell Lab

Premium

NEWTOWN, Pa.--InforMax and AxCell Biosciences have completed a prototype software tool that enables visualization of AxCell's in-house database of protein-protein interactions. The two companies had agreed last December to develop technology that would allow them to jointly market the database as part of InforMax's enterprise bioinformatics product, GenoMax.

As part of the deal, InforMax also installed GenoMax at AxCell's laboratory here to help AxCell identify protein domains and ligands it uses for high throughput protein-protein interaction measurements.
