ANN ARBOR, MI, August 10, 2020 — Cayman and GenScript have come together to create a complete package of neoantigen discovery services. Through combined efforts, MHC-associated peptides are identified and verified as immunogenic to guide peptide synthesis for vaccine development. “Cayman provides a complete workflow enabling the identification of peptide sequences as putative neoantigens. We are excited to add GenScript’s technical means and experience to synthesize peptides for our clients’ downstream applications and potential vaccine development,” said Dr. Michael Pisano, VP of Business Development and Contract Services at Cayman.


This service has wide applicability for neoantigen discovery projects, ranging from functional screening of candidates for T cell receptor therapy to clinical-stage peptide vaccine testing. “GenScript is excited to start this partnership with Cayman to provide a full immunopeptidome discovery and production service. By combining Cayman’s industry-leading expertise in immunopeptidome profiling with GenScript’s reliable service for difficult neoantigen peptide synthesis, we can offer a full-spectrum platform for the personalized immuno-oncology community,” said Dr. Samantha Zaroff, Product Manager of Neoantigen Peptides at GenScript.


By pooling resources, Cayman and GenScript have created a complementary partnership to deliver the highest quality and convenience to their customers. Visit to learn more about this service.
