s biological function without toxic side effects."

"We intend to expand our transfection reagent offerings, plus we have sublicenses available for companies needing a highly efficient vector with low toxicity to aid in their drug discovery," says Akers. "Techulon has strong developmental and synthetic capabilities headed up by Joshua Bryson, who studied under world-renowned biomaterials researcher Theresa Reineke at the University of Cincinnati. Techulon will work in partnerships to tailor our delivery vehicles for optimal effectiveness of novel genetic tools and drugs."

Bryson, principal scientist at Techulon, adds, "The exceptional delivery, high gene expression, and low toxicity of GlycofectTM are particularly evident in primary cells. This is of great benefit to biological and medical research because current transfection reagents do not work well with primary cells and these cell types are very costly and difficult to obtain."

GlycofectTM has been sampled to a number of medical research laboratories that have identified a broad spectrum of applications. In some cases, Techulon is cooperating with researchers to tailor the GlycofectTM formulations to optimize results for a variety of applications including siRNA delivery. GlycofectTM will be available for purchase as a transfection reagent for research applications on April 1, 2010. Techulon also plans to sublicense GlycofectTM for therapeutic development.
