Thursday, April 30th, 2015

RALEIGH, NC, USA – April 28, 2015 – Leading Life Science Reagent Manufacturer ImmunoReagents joins forces with Shenandoah Biotechnology, the industry’s leading manufacturing of recombinant proteins.

“New proteins are being identified every day by research labs around the world. To determine the significance of these proteins, the researchers need the proper tools,” said Dr. Ann Black. “That is why our relationship with Shenandoah Biotechnology is so important. We are now able to provide precise antibody tools needed to support ongoing, cutting edge research. Working with Shenandoah Biotech, ImmunoReagents will continue to expand our line of primary research antibodies for use in a variety of Immunoassay formats.”

Pamela De Lacy at Shenandoah talks about the partnership, "Shenandoah is discontinuing our antibody line of products because we want to be able to solely focus on what we excel at--world class recombinant proteins. By transferring our antibody product line to ImmunoReagents Inc, we can focus exclusively on bringing new high quality recombinant proteins to the research market while expanding ImmunoReagents offerings of high quality antibodies. Working together to expand a complete line of antigens, antibodies and ELISA kits in future collaborative projects, the partnership will benefit our customers by providing all of the tools a scientist needs to paint a complete scientific picture."
