Cellectricon Launches World's First System for High Throughput RNAi Screening

    GOTHENBERG, Sweden, March 27 /CNW/ - Cellectricon, a leading provider of
screening solutions for drug discovery, today announced the launch of the new
Cellaxess(R)HT System. The world's first fully automated high throughput
transfection system enables reagent-free delivery of genetic material to a
wide range of biologically relevant cell types. The system will be introduced
at the SBS 14th Annual Conference and Meeting in St. Louis, MO, USA, April 6 -
    Cellectricon has developed Cellaxess(R)HT in close collaboration with
leading research groups to meet the increasing demand for a technology capable
of genome-wide RNAi screening.
    "We are very pleased to meet the industry's demand by bringing this
state-of-the-art system to the market," says Dr. Mattias Karlsson, CEO of
Cellectricon. "Cellaxess(R)HT will revolutionize target discovery by opening
the door to using more biologically relevant cell types in genome-wide RNAi

    About the Cellaxess(R)HT system

    Cellaxess(R)HT addresses the critical need for high throughput delivery
of siRNA and cDNA to hard to transfect cells in several cell-based screening
assays. Cellaxess(R)HT is the only fully automated system on the market
allowing for high throughput transfection of cells in culture directly in
384-well microplates. The system enables reagent-free delivery to a wide range
of biologically relevant cell types with excellent efficiency and viability at
a throughput of 50 000 wells per day.
