ChemPartner and Active Motif Form an Epigenetic Biochemical Technology Alliance


December 2, 2014 – ChemPartner and Active Motif have formed a strategic alliance to develop technology for epigenetic biochemical assays that will significantly boost enzyme activity and reference potency.

The technology alliance will combine ChemPartner’s enzyme activity assay technology and project data with Active Motif’s protein solutions. The strategic partnership will expand the epigenetic panel service and also provide more comprehensive data for epigenetic enzyme quality control for drug screening applications. Biotech companies globally can take advantage of the combined solutions offered through the partnership to speed up their research projects and lower their cost, avoiding the huge upfront investment incurred in instrumentation and labor.

“Active Motif is the best epigenetic protein and reagent provider around the world; we are very glad to establish a collaboration with Active Motif. We believe our partnership will more effectively strengthen the benefit for our respective customers”, commented Mr. Michael Hui, Chairman and CEO of ChemPartner.

To date, Active Motif and ChemPartner have successfully collaborated on over 37 epigenetic targets.

"Active Motif is very proud and enthusiastic about embarking on a partnership with such a prestigious CRO like ChemPartner. I believe that this is a strong endorsement of the quality of our protein expression group“, commented Joseph M. Fernandez, CEO of Active Motif.
