NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Grace Bio-Labs today announced a manufacturing and distribution deal for Avantra Biosciences' Path protein microarray ultra-thin non-porous nitrocellulose slides.
The Path Slides provide many of the benefits of nitrocellulose "in a thin film that allows very low background fluorescence and excellent signal-to-noise ratio," Grace Bio-Labs said in a statement. The Bend, Ore., firm also offers its own Oncyte porous nitrocellulose thin film slides, which it says offers the highest binding capacity for protein applications.
Grace Bio-Labs will sell the Path slides directly from its website and through a distribution agreement with Sigma-Aldrich, which also distributes other Grace Bio-Labs products.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not released.
Grace Bio-Labs develops and manufactures products for protein and cell analysis research.
