Dow AgroSciences announces licensing agreement with Critical Path Services

Dow AgroSciences announces licensing agreement with Critical Path Services. | QATARISBOOMING.COM
Critical Path Services now has a non-exclusive license to Dow AgroSciences’ patented intellectual property that includes a high throughput method for detecting multiple proteins in plants using mass spectroscopy.

The agreement aim to provide both companies to contract research organizations and government regulators to more efficiently identify proteins in plant samples both naturally occurring and from trait introgression.

Aiming to meet the growing need, Dow AgroSciences has created a more efficient, high throughput method using liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectroscopy (LC/MS/MS) to multiplex the measurement of increasing numbers of proteins in plants of interest to companies and government regulators. This technology referred to as Plextein, is being licensed to Critical Path Services in a non-exclusive agreement.

“Plextein has the potential to accelerate the discovery and development of novel plant traits by simplifying the analysis of complex samples which ultimately benefits farmers with new products,” Dow AgroSciences Global Seeds Discovery Leader Tom Meade said. “Our intent to broadly license this high throughput solution reflects our commitment to sharing the benefits of our innovation with third parties, including contract research and service companies such as Critical Path Services.”
