Microbix to Develop Virus Vectors for GE Healthcare Cell Analysis Platforms

NEW YORK, July 26 (GenomeWeb News) - Microbix Biosystems will develop a portfolio of recombinant adenoviruses for use with GE Healthcare's sub-cellular imaging instruments, the company said today.


Under the terms of the agreement, Microbix will develop the vectors for the IN Cell Analyzer 3000 and 1000, which GE Healthcare added to its portfolio following its April acquisition of Amersham. According to an official statement, "a range of ready-to-use assays will be developed to enable researchers to study key cellular events in real time and in a cell line of choice."


Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
