The Molecular Profiling Institute, Inc. (Molecular Profiling) today announced the acquisition of the assets of NanoBiomics, Inc. NanoBiomics is an early-stage company whose mission is to develop and commercialize genomic-based diagnostics utilizing nanoscale-processing technologies created at the Applied Nanobioscience Center at ASU. Nanobiomics was recently recognized as the "Startup Biotechnology Company of the Year" from the Arizona BioIndustry Association at the Arizona Bio Expo 2005.
NanoBiomics was formed by the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and Arizona Technology Enterprises (AzTE) with the intention to commercialize technology from both organizations. Molecular Profiling, a collaboration between TGen and the International Genomics Consortium (IGC), is a specialty reference laboratory and a leader in using genetic signatures to help tailor medical therapy. Molecular Profiling is the first for-profit spin-off venture for TGen and IGC.
