ImmunoReagents and ProteoVec Transform Antibody Purification with Kit Announcement

News Release, Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 11:25 AM Eastern Daylight Time

RALEIGH, NC, USA – April 21, 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 announce commercial availability of the first of a series of PV-Pure Ig™ microscale antibody purification kits for use by researchers in the diagnostics, academic, pharmaceutical and life-science fields.

“This first kit can be used for many human and mouse immune globulins, some of which are poorly bound by Protein A”, said ProteoVec’s CEO Dr. David Spencer. “New kits in the near future will broaden use even further, across a wide range of species.”

“The ability to selectively capture antibodies from both cell culture media and serum with a resin using a non-protein-affinity ligand is a substantial step forward for antibody researchers,” said ImmunoReagents CEO Dr. Ann Black. “We think the gentle elution conditions and ability to capture a broad range of antibodies will make PV-Pure Ig a new first-line analytical tool.”
