Proteomic and Biotechnology Companies Collaborate

Thursday, 02 November, 2000

Sydney-based company, Proteome Systems and Australian biotechnology company Gradipore have announced a collaborative agreement to develop and manufacture two-dimensional gel technologies for the proteomics market.

A challenge facing the science of proteomics is developing tools to analyse proteins more quickly and economically. Gel technology is an important component for carrying out proteomics research.

To meet this challenge, Proteome Systems would source Gradipore 2D gels for use in its own programs and for its sales and marketing initiative in proteome platform technologies.

This announcement also offers Gradipore a new market. For example, Proteome's proprietary `chemical printing' technology links gels to mass spectrometry and represents a development that has been missing in proteomics.

As a result of this collaboration, Gradipore and Proteome Systems will combine their skills in developing new 2D gel technologies.
