Under the agreement, the two companies will work to develop affinity-based products for use in the production processes for protein-based pharmaceuticals. The development of these products will be based on Affibodies™, a novel class of small, robust affinity proteins designed to bind desired protein targets. Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.
“The use of Affibodies™ opens up new possibilities for large-scale protein purification for production of protein based pharmaceuticals. We are very pleased that we can continue to build value through our successful collaboration with Affibody”, said Peter Ehrenheim, Vice President of Protein Separations at Amersham Biosciences.
Affibody and Amersham Biosciences have a successful ongoing collaboration, which was initiated two years ago. For Amersham Biosciences, the newly initiated collaboration entails an expansion of the Company’s research portfolio regarding products for purification, i.e. affinity chromatography.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
