GE Healthcare Life Sciences has signed up with the scientific equipment sharing and booking platform Clustermarket to give wider access to specialised life sciences and biotech equipment. MediSieve, a University College London spin-out, has already taken full advantage of the move by using GE Healthcare’s Biacore T200 surface plasmon resonance system to enable it to carry out research into interactions between antibodies and their targets. Owners of GE Health Life Sciences instruments will now be able to hire out specialist life sciences and biotech equipment on Clustermarket’s platform.
Chief Executive Officer and Founder of MediSieve, George Frodsham, said: “The Biacore T200 surface plasmon resonance system has helped us to better understand the molecular interaction occurring between an antibody and its target enabling the development of our potentially life-changing technology to advance. Clustermarket has been invaluable from the beginning in sourcing the equipment and services we need to develop our technology.”
