UK-based SME offers expertise in the development of cell lines for drug discovery work

Summary

A UK-based SME offers its capabilities and experience in cell line development to companies, research groups and universities. The SME will work with partners to develop cell lines expressing the recombinant protein of choice in the amounts and quality required for their drug target and drug discovery work. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of commercial agreements with technical assistance, manufacturing agreements or technical cooperation agreements.

Partner sought

The UK SME is looking to partner with companies, universities and research organisations that are working in the fields of drug discovery. The SME will work with these partners to generate proteins of relevance to their programmes with the partner expected to provide feedback on the performance to inform the SME's internal development programme. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of a commercial agreement with technical assistance, manufacturing agreement or a technical cooperation agreement depending on the particular situation of the partner.

Description

Cell lines are a vitally important tool in life sciences research, especially in the understanding of disease processes and so in developing treatments. However developing cell lines that express the right proteins in the right quantities and that are stable enough to work with is a difficult task. A UK-based SME has specific expertise in the development of cell lines for research. These cell lines have the characteristics required for research, such as expression of key proteins in the amounts and quality required for a particular research project. The SME's cell lines are also stable, meaning that they retain the ability to express the required protein over time making them suitable for longer term research projects. The SME is looking to partner with companies, universities and research organisations conducting research that would utilise cell lines. The SME would develop the cell line with the required characteristics for the partner and would expect the partner to provide information on performance in order for the SME to improve its technology and offer. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of commercial agreements with technical assistance, manufacturing agreements or technical cooperation agreements. This will depend on the nature of the project and the specific situation of the partner.
