RALEIGH, NC, USA – March 16, 2015 – Leading Life Science Reagent Manufacturer ImmunoReagents joins forces with Bioseparations Technology Innovator ProteoVec to transform antibody purification. As part of a strategic corporate alliance, the two companies plan to market PV-Pure Ig™ microscale antibody purification kits for use by researchers in the diagnostics, academic, pharmaceutical and life-science fields.

“Our goal is to replace the use of Proteins A and G in antibody purification”, said ProteoVec’s COO/CSO Dr. David Spencer. “Current technology is too limiting because of low binding densities and inability to purify immune globulins from several species. PV-Pure Ig uses novel, highly stable molecules to very selectively bind and elute an unprecedented range of antibodies.”

“The research community has been waiting decades for a real innovation in the field of antibody purification,” said ImmunoReagents CEO Dr. Ann Black. “Working with ProteoVec, ImmunoReagents will, over the next weeks and months launch a series of innovative antibody purification kits with substantial advantages over current technologies.”
