NETPark based Stream Bio launches new range of molecular probes

Stream Bio, a company that develops and manufactures a range of revolutionary bioimaging molecular probes, has launched its new range of Streptavidin-linked CPNs™ onto the market. These Streptavidin Conjugates can be used for the detection of various biomolecules and will complement Stream’s current portfolio of CPN™ molecular probes.

Stream Bio’s CPNs™ have applications in diagnostics and therapeutics, and have the potential to be used for imaging tumours and fluorescence-guided surgery. These highly fluorescent, non-toxic nanoparticles are set to transform the bioimaging market with their unique brightness, exceptional stability, magnetic capability and suitability to be conjugated with a wide variety of molecules.

The new range of molecular probes from Stream Bio have streptavidin covalently attached to fluorescent CPNs™. This allows the intense fluorescence of the CPN™ to be readily linked to a wide array of targeting molecules. Streptavidin is a protein with an extraordinarily high binding affinity for biotin and is commonly used to link fluorophores to primary or secondary antibodies for specific detection of a variety of proteins, protein motifs, nucleic acids, and other biomolecules. Some of the detection protocols the Streptavidin-linked CPNs™ can be used with include flow cytometry, Western Blots, microplate assays, imaging and microscopy.

The Streptavidin linked CPNs™ are available in four wavelengths; 475nm, 510nm, 550nm and 680nm. They can be purchased from distributors 2B Scientific in the UK, Clinisciences in France, and Biotrends in Germany.

Andrew Chaloner, Founding Director and CEO of Stream Bio, commented: “We are delighted to be releasing our most recent range of CPNs™. Seeing our products develop and be successfully brought to market is a justification of all the hard work put in by the team here at Stream Bio. I am excited to see the opportunities that this new range will bring and what the future holds for our products.”

The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.

Dr Neil Loxley, - Chief executive, IBEX

The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.

Dr Arnab Basu, - CEO, Kromek

When looking for premises which would support our growth, whilst we’d looked at other locations nothing came close to NETPark. The office is modern and well serviced and reflects the type of company we are.

Paul Ashley , - Co-Founder, PNTS

We’re delighted to have opened our new site at NETPark.  This will make it easier for us to attract the best engineering talent to the Tharsus team so that we can continue to deliver game-changing robotic systems for our customers.

Brian Palmer , - CEO, Tharsus

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.

Ken Williamson, - COO, PragmatIC Printing

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.

Dr Jon Helliwell, - Director of Printable Electronics, CPI

It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.

Stuart Wilson, - CEO, Ascarii

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
