New collaboration between Amersham Biosciences and Affibody increases potential in protein purification

06.03.2002


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.


“The agreement validates the commercial value of Affibody’s technology and is an important milestone for us. This also shows that Affibody is an attractive business partner. Our collaboration with Amersham Biosciences has been very fruitful so far, and has already resulted in royalty revenues,” says Torben Jørgensen, CEO of Affibody.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
