cell-based assays

The deal calls for ATCC to produce and authenticate cell banks and production lots of engineered and stock cell lines for use as cellular reagents as Promega creates a line of new cell-based assay systems for biologics.

The grant from NIGMS will be used to develop assays and databases to identify the most clinically significant drug-to-drug interactions involving membrane transporters.

Seahorse Extracellular and Flux Analyzers provide a kinetic method of measuring mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis, the two major energy-producing pathways, in living cells in a microplate, the company said.

Advion is opening a new services facility in Indianapolis, and Eli Lilly will transition its drug discovery bioanalytical capability to the firm.

The partnership comprises Iota Pharmaceuticals, protein research firm KinaseDetect, and drug discovery firm SARomics Biostructures.

The acquisition of the chemical proteomics firm allows Evotec it "to take earlier educated decisions on drug efficacy, safety, and response in patients."

BioCat will distribute the firm's LightSwitch Luciferase Assay System in select European countries.

The firm will use its in vitro transporter technology platform to examine drug-dietary supplement interactions.

The German-based company expects to file its test for FFPE within the next few months, and to start a clinical trial for its cytology test by mid-year.

In return for access to Forma's compound library and cell-based screening platforms, Eisai will pay $20 million upfront and in committed funding over three years, plus potential milestone and royalty payments.
