Expression Pathology Licenses Harvard’s AQUA Technology for Protein Quantification

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Expression Pathology said last week that it has licensed the patent rights to the AQUA protein quantification technology from Harvard University.
AQUA, a shortened form of “absolute quantification,” uses labeled peptide standards “to achieve absolute quantitation of target proteins in biological samples by mass spectrometry,” Expression Pathology said in a statement.
The company said it will combine AQUA with its own technologies for extracting proteins from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues to develop new research and diagnostic applications.
Financial terms of the licensing agreement were not disclosed.
