Companies mentioned in this article: Cambridge Isotope Laboratories, Inc.

BOSTON -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Cambridge Isotope Laboratories, Inc. (CIL), the world's leading supplier of stable isotopes and stable isotope-enriched small molecules, is working together with Nexomics Biosciences, a structural biology and protein production contract research organization, to provide isotope-labeled proteins to life science research organizations.

Scientific research guided by stable-isotope-enriched protein reagents has become common place in academic and biopharmaceutical research. CIL and Nexomics will address this demand by producing and offering catalog and custom isotope-enriched proteins.

Under the terms of the agreement Nexomics will provide protein production services, while CIL will provide global sales and marketing support. "We are very excited to enter into agreement with CIL, one of the most respected names in the field of stable-isotope reagents for biomedical research. These reagents have a wide range of applications. In addition to producing catalog proteins, our extensive experience in producing isotope-enriched proteins will be invaluable to our clients," says Gaetano Montelione, CEO of Nexomics Biosciences.

"Nexomics' success in developing techniques to determine protein structure using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy nicely complements CIL's mission to offer isotope enriched reagents used to produce labeled recombinant protein. The capabilities that Nexomics offers, such as the production and NMR analysis of isotope-enriched protein,will enhance and expand CIL's current product offering," says Joel Bradley, CEO of Cambridge Isotope Laboratories.
