Caliper and HistoRx to collaborate on new protein analysis platform
April 2011
SHARING OPTIONS:

HOPKINTON, Mass.A new collaboration between Caliper Life Sciences Inc. and HistoRx Inc. is underway with the goal of co-developing tissue-based imaging and analysis solutions, ones that will provide quantitative measurements of proteins within tissue samples. According to the companies, the collaboration will combine Caliper's Vectra, an automated multiplexed tissue-imaging platform, with HistoRx's AQUA technology, an image analysis system, and will give researchers a new platform for identifying new drug targets and assessing drug response. Within the life sciences research market, Caliper will hold exclusive worldwide distribution rights for the integrated platform as the two companies examine further mutual research opportunities. The platform will offer a suite of tools to aid in the correlation of protein expressions within the progression of diseases. The AQUA-enabled Vectra program is scheduled to launch in August.
 
"The Vectra system from Caliper represents a significant move forward for researchers interested in digital pathology with multispectral, brightfield and fluorescent capabilities," Bill Sullivan, HistoRx's senior vice president of operations. "By matching AQUA technology's intensity-based quantitative measurement with Caliper's market-leading multispectral imaging capabilities, users will be afforded a level of quality and performance that is unparalleled. Caliper is therefore a natural partner for HistoRx in bringing reproducible and truly quantitative immunohistochemistry to the anatomic pathology laboratory."
