Stemina Biomarker Discovery (Stemina) and Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, announced today that they have signed a collaborative research agreement.

Under the collaboration, Stemina will use its proprietary metabolomics platform and expertise in discovery and validation of small molecules to identify biomarkers associated with specific plant traits.

"Pioneer is a world leader in plant genetics; Stemina is a leader in metabolomics," said Stemina CSO Dr. Gabriela Cezar. "Under this collaboration Stemina and Pioneer will study the small molecule biomarkers that are part of a plant's metabolism in response to certain conditions or that are indicative of the plant's phenotype."

"Pioneer is identifying leading technology companies with which to collaborate on a shared goal of increased agricultural productivity," said Barbara Mazur, vice president of Research Strategy - DuPont Agricultural Biotechnology. "Stemina has an excellent technology platform that will complement our internal research programs."

Stemina Biomarker Discovery is a metabolomics company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of molecular biomarkers to improve drug safety, life sciences products and human health.

Among several platforms, Stemina's cell-based assays arise from the strategic convergence of two cutting edge technologies: hES cells and metabolomics. Stemina uses mass spectrometry to analyze the small molecules secreted by hES cells, and differentiated cells such as heart and neural cells made from hES cells, in response to drugs, injury or disease.

Stemina opened its state-of-the-art facilities for hES cell culture and mass spectrometry in the UW Research Park in Madison, Wisconsin on November 1, 2007.
