New Partnership with German Based Company

Aug 25 2009 Read 1398 Times

BioFocus DPI a provider of gene-to-candidate discovery services are partnering with German-based biotech TET Systems Holding to apply its inducible gene technology in high-throughput drug discovery screening
campaigns performed for BioFocus DPI’s customers. This approach enables control of individual genes both quantitatively and reversibly in cellular assays and is particularly powerful in cases where the target is not
well tolerated in the cells, since the protein will not be expressed until required for screening. “The TET Technology allows us to build on the proven compound screening service that we offer clients. This powerful approach will benefit discovery programmes that are hindered by difficult to express targets. Using this technology, we will be able to perform more efficient, extensive compound screening on these problematic targets,” commented Dr. Kate Hilyard, VP Biological Sciences, BioFocus DPI.

“We are very pleased to sign this agreement with BioFocus DPI, one of the leading drug discovery service providers worldwide. TET Technology has been used successfully for many years by most of the major
pharmaceutical companies. Through this new partnership with BioFocus DPI, a broader range of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies will gain access to TET System’s gene expression technology,” stated Dr Ernst Boehnlein, CEO of TET Systems Holding and IP Merchandisers.
