Established in 2000, BioCarta is engaged in the development and commercialization of new technology for functional proteomics. The company offers more than 10,000 reagents for the study of protein function and is aiming to have probes for every possible gene. BioCarta's web-based communication and information tools aid scientists working on genomics and proteomics problems.

The scientist-moderated web sites are designed to provide immediate access to existing life science research and integrate new data as it emerges. The site provides information on gene function and proteomic pathways and an online scientific forum to encourage communication and collaboration between researchers, educators and students. BioCarta also offers an array of immunology, molecular biology and cell biology reagents for sale and provides custom antibody services via contract research organizations.

The company has a collaboration with Gene Logic Inc. to provide commercial databases. In Japan, BioCarta has a relationship with Wako, a subsidiary of Takeda Pharmaceuticals, to provide distribution services and reagents.


BioCarta has offices in San Diego; Hamburg, Germany; Oxford, United Kingdom; and Tokyo and Kobe, Japan, to facilitate scientific linkage around the globe. The company's customers include a large number of academic labs and pharmaceutical companies.
