UK firms Proteome Sciences and Medical Solutions are entering into a co-marketing agreement to promote their technologies towards the use of protein biomarkers in diagnostic testing. Cobham, Surrey-based Proteome Sciences, uses its proprietary ProteoSHOP technology, comprising two-dimensional gel-based electrophoresis and gel-free protein sequence tagging to identify markers in body fluids and tissue. Medical Solutions targets diagnostic pathology products at the NHS and UK private sector. By combining their technologies, the firms hope to offer customers a "seamless workflow from biomarker discovery through to implementation in diagnostics and drug development".
