   If I remember correctly one other company which sells this technology is
Chiron Mimotopes. I don't have a phone number or email address for them but
I'm sure your purchasing department can track them down. Mario Geysen used to
work for Chiron but I heard that he has moved to Glaxo; perhaps he could give
you some advice.
