Cisbio Installs CyBio's Workstation

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The French assay services company Cisbio has installed CyBio's robotic workstation in its laboratory to use in its assay development services.

Cisbio said on Tuesday that using the CyBio workstation will help to reinforce its custom assay development services for creating and optimizing homogenous time-resolved fluorescence assays.

The CyBio HTRF workstation is a customized, modular automation platform for high-throughput applications, which allows for testing under different assay conditions and applied research using high-density plate formats. It is used to help detect molecular interactions for the high-throughput screening phase of drug development.

Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
