Arkion® Life Sciences LLC of New Castle, Delaware, formed in July 2001 to purchase the Life Sciences Group of DCV, Inc. Additionally, a goal was to advance their development work in biotechnology and life sciences. With the acquisition, Arkion® acquired all of DCV’s intellectual property. Most importantly, this included over 400 patents and patent applications and retained all key employees. Arkion has grown it’s number of patents to over 550 since the acquisition.
DCV, Inc. formed in 1987 as a group of joint ventures between DuPont and ConAgra. At that time, both companies shared the vision of bringing their technological capabilities together and diversity into the Life Sciences area. In August of 1997, the DCV management group and Windward Capital bought the joint ventures from DuPont and ConAgra.
