IRVINE, Calif., July 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Nanommune Inc. and Velox Biosystems, Inc. have announced a partnership to bring to market rapid, high-throughput laboratory testing and consulting services for clinicians, laboratories, and researchers to accelerate their use and adoption of cutting-edge high plex microarray products worldwide.
The launch of the partnership addresses an unmet need in the market at a crucial time. Researchers are working around the clock to understand and develop treatments against COVID-19 and use of high plex microarrays for SARS-CoV-2 research is gaining rapid adoption, however, many labs lack the capacity to perform the tests in an accurate and high-throughput manner. Nanommune and Velox have years of experience developing breakthrough diagnostic technologies and have created this partnership in order to provide end-to-end testing and consulting services for their clients.
"We are excited to partner with Velox on this project. The team at Velox is extremely experienced and brings a wealth of scientific and technical expertise that our clients will benefit from immensely," said Chris Magill, CEO of Nanommune Inc. "This collaboration will open the door for researchers to fully realize the efficiency and benefit of the microarray antibody and antigen assays."
"This partnership between Nanommune and Velox can make an immediate impact in the fight against the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak," said Dr. Byron Shen, CEO of Velox Biosystems, Inc. "There is excellent synergy between our two companies and we are working closely to launch the COVID-19 immune profiling service, as well as develop additional products and tools based on this exciting microarray platform."
