Montreal’s MédiMabs to distribute reagent antibodies to international market
July 17, 2018 – Toronto, ON, Canada – The Centre for the Commercialization of Antibodies and Biologics (CCAB) and MédiMabs Antibodies have signed an agreement for the distribution of CCAB’s reagent antibodies. The agreement marks the launch of a new business segment for CCAB and allows MédiMabs to expand its portfolio to include human synthetic antibodies.
“CCAB is enthusiastic to be working with MédiMabs and benefit from its experience in antibody distribution,” Robert Verhagen, CEO of CCAB said. “This collaboration will not only help both organizations expand their businesses, it will benefit the research community by offering a unique set of reagent antibodies that is currently limited in the market.”
Through CCAB’s rigorous selection process, the company has developed a portfolio of monoclonal research-grade antibodies against an array of human proteins involved in various diseases such as cancer and autoimmune disorders. The antibodies exhibit competitive properties for reagent use primarily by Flow Cytometry and ELISA applications.
“MédiMabs is looking forward to working with CCAB since our organizations have great synergy and compatible technologies,” Martin Wong, MédiMabs Chairman said. “We are confident that this partnership will be a win-win for both companies and together we can deliver new and unique antibodies to life sciences researchers.”
MédiMabs will distribute the CCAB reagent antibodies to an international market. They are now available on MédiMabs’ new website.
