November 5, 2013 – Oss, The Netherlands. ModiQuest Research BV, the Dutch antibody generation services company, today announced that it has expanded its research collaboration with Dako – an Agilent Technologies company.  After the successful generation of monoclonal antibodies by ModiQuest against a proprietary target selected by Dako earlier this year, both parties have extended their collaboration with three additional targets for monoclonal antibody generation by ModiQuest. During the collaboration, ModiQuest will make use of its proprietary hybridoma-electrofusion technology (ModiFuseTM).  Financials details of the collaboration were not disclosed.
