The deal encompasses about 190 products that supplement PROGEN’s portfolio of proprietary immunochemicals.
The purchase is part of PROGEN’s expansion in the cell biology research antibody market. Dr. Sven Kuhlendahl, General Manager of PROGEN: “It is a pleasure to announce the integration of EuroProxima’s high-class antibodies into our own portfolio of over 500 antibodies.

We are now in an excellent position to serve research laboratories worldwide with a broad variety of immunochemical tools.”
PROGEN reaches out to potential partners in its endeavor to further expand its research reagents business. This includes monoclonal and recombinant antibodies as well as immunochemical tests supporting the validity of cell biology experiments.

Standing for premium quality, PROGEN’s newly acquired antibodies will adhere to the highest standards that warrant dependable specificity and reproducibility. The acquired product line is already available in the company’s web shop (www.progen.com).
Since 1983, PROGEN has been an established manufacturer and supplier of premium antibodies, in vitro diagnostics, and reagents for the global life science research community.

Building on its core-competency in immunochemistry, the company has expanded its collaborations and business in recent years to access new research markets with innovative immunological products. The activities of the DIN EN ISO 13485 certified company focus on the development of ELISA tests for the determination of adeno-associated virus titers in gene therapy research and development.
