Thermo Fisher Scientific is seeking partners and opportunities to further develop and commercialize technologies for enhanced signal detection with antibodies. This includes technologies that provide greater sensitivity and stability over current dyes, labels (i.e. enyzmes), and chemistries. Candidates are desired for use in Western blotting, immunofluorescence on cells and tissues and flow cytometry.
Dyes and antibody labels are extremely important tools to help visualize and quantify protein abundance in complex samples. The development of new dyes over the past 10–20 years, including our InvitrogenTM Alexa FluorTM dyes, has made a big impact on the scientific community expanding the utility and capacity of antibodies to be used in a wide variety of applications. Thermo Fisher Scientific continues to innovate in this space and can partner to work with our scientific teams to incorporate new, better-performing dyes. We are also very interested in new conjugation chemistries that enable more efficient, scalable methods to conjugate dyes and labels to antibodies. There is also great interest in conjugation chemistries that enable enhanced signals.
The technologies ideally will display the following properties:
