Axxora Life Science to Distribute ProteoHook Sample Prep Kits

  • Proteopure established a distribution agreement for its ProteoHook™ Protein Sample Preparation Kits with Axxora Life Sciences. “Our bead-based protein capture technology gives researchers a great new tool for protein sample preparation in biomarker and proteomic research,” points out Richard Ekstrom, president of Proteopure.

    "The relationship with Axxora,” Ekstrom adds, “will greatly increase the visibility of Proteopure's new proteomic sample preparation kits, especially in Europe where considerable proteomic research is underway.”
