Indi Molecular® and Sigma-Aldrich® Establish Collaboration to Explore Use of PCC Technology in Biological Tools

Press Release | 17 December 2014
CULVER CITY, CA — Indi Molecular, the maker of a synthetic replacement for monoclonal antibodies, today announced that it has entered into a co-development agreement with Sigma-Aldrich to explore the use of Indi Molecular’s PCC technology with Sigma-Aldrich’s line of biological tools. PCC (protein catalyzed capture) agent technology is a breakthrough process that produces synthetic peptide molecules capable of binding interactions that are equivalent or superior to molecular antibodies. Current systems employ antibody-based biological tools that are used to capture proteins and enable highly sensitive detection. The joint research and development project will explore the use of PCCs to specifically interact with proteins.
