21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CDI Laboratories (CDI) has granted exclusive worldwide distribution rights of its collection of over 2500 transcription factor monospecific monoclonal antibodies to NeoBiotechnologies. The antibodies were developed through
CDI's participation in the NIH Protein Capture Reagents Program. The antibodies have been certified monospecific using the CDI HuProt™ microarray which contains 75% of the human proteome. The agreement also includes future antibodies against critical cancer diagnostic markers developed by CDI (using its Fast-MAb® monoclonal antibody development technology) and specificity validation on the HuProt microarray. NeoBiotechnologies will be evaluating all antibodies for use in immunohistochemistry (IHC) and will distribute through NeoBiotechnologies extensive worldwide channels.

According to CDI Vice President Scott Paschke, "NeoBiotechnologies is a perfect partner for CDI.  Atul Tandon – Neobiotechnologies CEO – has deep experience in the research antibody market and is an expert in characterizing antibodies in IHC.  Also, NeoBiotechnologies places a high value on quality and understands that proteome microarray specificity testing is an industry game-changer."

NeoBiotechnologies CEO Atul Tandon stated, "The partnership between CDI and NeoBiotechnologies will be mutually beneficial. We will test CDI's >2,500 monospecific MAbs for staining of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded normal and cancerous human tissues. The antibodies will also be tested for other biochemical applications on endogenous proteins. Soon, researchers worldwide will have access to thousands of fully-validated monospecific monoclonal antibodies."
