The CurelineGroup and Cellecta, Inc. today announced the launch of Tissue 2 Target™ , a new strategic partnership to combine the companies’ core strengths in human biospecimen (HBS) management and molecular analysis of cells and tissues to offer services that streamline workflows for pre-clinical and translational research laboratories focusing on gene target and biomarker discovery.

The Tissue 2 Target partnership will provide a one-stop shop for researchers interested in molecular characterization of highly qualified human biospecimens to improve efficiency of pre-clinical and translational research workflows. The fusion of The Cureline Group’s foundation in human biospecimen (HBS) management with Cellecta’s capabilities in functional genomics techniques for drug target validation and biomarker discovery facilitates evidence-based decision-making to improve outcomes of translational and pre-clinical programs. 

“I am very excited about our new partnership with Cellecta. Cureline’s global capabilities in HBS management and Cellecta’s exceptional assay development expertise will provide new great opportunities to our clients working on human disease biomarker R&D,” stated Olga Potapova, Ph.D., chief executive officer and scientific director of The Cureline Group.

Cellecta is pleased to partner with The Cureline Group to provide a streamlined workflow for translational medicine and pre-clinical research. Our experience in genetic analysis, adaptive immune repertoire profiling, and related functional genomic techniques perfectly complement Cureline’s biospecimen expertise to provide researchers with a fast track to successful outcomes,” noted Alex Chenchik, Ph.D., Cellecta president and chief scientific officer.

With Tissue 2 Target services, researchers will gain access to a complete discovery and validation workflow including sample collection and management, best-in-class assays for drug target and biomarker discovery and validation, and a data analysis pipeline. Working together, The Cureline Group and Cellecta, Inc. will ensure that pre-clinical and translational research workflows are efficient and reliable, enabling researchers to focus on meeting study goals and key milestones.
