Cyntellect Snares US Biopharma Customer for Cell Xpress Service

NEW YORK, Feb. 1 (GenomeWeb News) - San Diego-based Cyntellect said recently that an undisclosed US-based biotechnology company has entered into a formal agreement with Cyntellect to access its Cell Xpress service.


The agreement is the second one announced by Cyntellect since the service was launched in October 2004, when the company also said it had signed a partnership for Cell Xpress with Protein Design Labs.


Cyntellect's LEAP (Laser-Enabled Analysis and Processing) platform, which is part of the company's Cell Xpress service, allows researchers to image and measure protein secretions in situ in high-throughput on individual cells, as well as use laser-based elimination of undesired cells.
