Huntsville, Ala. — Trideum Corporation, a Huntsville solutions and services provider, is expanding its newly formed Biosciences division to HudsonAlpha. Trideum’s new division includes laboratory testing, developing custom biologicals and scientific consultation.
Founded in 2005 by president and CEO Van Sullivan, Trideum has an experienced staff of more than 100 professionals who are experts in modeling and simulation, operations research, system engineering, software engineering and technical integration.
In the company’s biosciences services division, Sullivan said, Trideum employs a uniquely tailored approach for providing scientific solutions to clients, such as cost-effective, high-quality, custom DNA for diagnostic assay development and validation.
“Our goal with coming to HudsonAlpha is to become integrated with the life sciences community in Huntsville and to build a local network with the experts at the institute,” said Sullivan.
Directing the biosciences team at Trideum is Mina Izadjoo, Ph.D. Dr. Izadjoo’s research has mostly focused on developing and evaluating novel diagnostics and therapeutics.
The Trideum Biosciences team has expertise in conducting various testing and evaluation studies including anti-biofilm efficacy testing; conducting antibody and cell-based assays, and extracting high quality genomic material from infectious agents. Additionally, Trideum offers scientific consultation and partnerships in scientific grant writing.
Trideum will continue the existing operations in laboratories in Maryland while expanding operations at HudsonAlpha.
