Billingham, UK/Camelford, UK – 27th May 2014: Cambridge Research Biochemicals (“CRB”) and Key Organics Limited (“Key Organics”) today announced that they have entered into an exclusive supply & marketing agreement.
Since CRB was established in 1980, the Company quickly became a global leader in the supply of custom–made peptides and has recently expanded its premises in Billingham, UK. CRB continues to develop the range of products and services offered and can supply all flavours of peptides. This encompasses simple to heavily modified targets and various labels including stable-isotopes, radio-isotopes and fluorescent dyes can be incorporated. Milligram to gram-scale quantities are offered at the highest levels of purity.
Within its BIONET brand, Key Organics offers an extensive range of over 74,000 screening compounds, intermediates, building blocks and biochemicals to the international pharmaceutical, biotechnology and agrochemical industries. With new premises near Boston, USA, Key Organics is able to supply its BIONET products to the North American market.
As an innovator within the peptide industry, CRB wishes to expand the market range of its growing peptide product portfolio. Key Organics has access to a global customer base within the life sciences sector, excellent customer service and compound handling infrastructure that ensures that products are dispatched on the same day. The alliance will allow both companies to offer an increasing range of products to a wider market audience.
Emily Humphrys, Commercial Director at CRB commented: “Our partnership with Key Organics will allow us to access the catalogue peptide market, which we have not served since the early nineties. We will continue to focus on our core peptide activities, serving our key customers with bespoke custom-made peptides, whilst Key Organics sells our new catalogue peptide range.”
