PHILADELPHIA-(PR NEWSWIRE)-Integral Molecular, the industry leader in membrane protein solutions, today announced the expansion of its two proprietary antibody characterization platforms, Shotgun Mutagenesis Epitope Mapping and the Membrane Proteome Array (MPA). Integral Molecular recently acquired office and laboratory space, which enabled the company to double its antibody characterization capabilities.
“Businesses like Integral Molecular are creating jobs and contributing to the vibrancy of Philadelphia’s biosector. We’re thrilled that Integral Molecular has chosen to start, grow, and expand right here at uCity Square,” says Steve Zarrilli, President & CEO of University City Science Center. “Integral Molecular’s trajectory exemplifies the services and support offered by the Science Center and facilities available at uCity Square.”
The expansion is being driven by recent MPA Target Discovery partnerships and a surge of Shotgun Mutagenesis Epitope Mapping projects, prompting the need for additional space and personnel.
