Sloning BioTechnology

Sloning BioTechnology announced late last week it now is offering a custom mutant library construction service. SlonoMax libraries are made up exclusively of desired mutant proteins in defined proportions.
In a statement, Sloning said that the production of such protein variant libraries has typically resulted in the presence of undesirable mutations and unequal representation of desired variants.
SlonoMax uses Slonomics technology, which enables the parallel construction of variants based on the use of triplet building blocks, the company said. This allows for the targeted assembly of proteins “with the desired codons at each sequence position.”
