Sigma-Aldrich Forms Translational Research PactBy
Sigma-Aldrich Corporation’s Research business unit has formed an alliance with VIB, a life-science research institute based in Flanders, Belgium, focused on translational research in medical, agricultural, and industrial applications. The alliance will focus on the commercialization and supply of new tools and technologies to help meet the evolving needs of translational researchers.
Beginning this year, Sigma-Aldrich and VIB will collaborate to provide tools and technologies for translational research and solutions to the challenges that scientists face. Using Sigma-Aldrich’s research and development and manufacturing capabilities, along with its global distribution network, the alliance will help to accelerate and enhance the commercial development and availability of VIB’s research tools and technologies for researchers.
The VIB collaboration is the second partnership of its kind that Sigma-Aldrich has made to expand its portfolio of new products. Sigma-Aldrich recently announced an agreement with Scripps Research Institute to accelerate the commercialization of research reagents.
