Date:12/3/2008

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, December 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellectricon, a leading provider of screening solutions for drug discovery, today announced the signing of a collaborative agreement with The Automation Partnership (TAP) in the UK, manufacturers of advanced automated systems for cell culture, sample management and high throughput screening applications. Under the agreement TAP will co-develop and manufacture the Dynaflow(R)HT System, Cellectricon's next generation high throughput ion channel screening platform. Dynaflow(R)HT will be launched and commercially available in 2009.

Addressing the limitations of current ion channel screening technologies, the Dynaflow(R)HT yields an unmatched level of automated throughput while still delivering unique measurement data quality. The concept and technology has been developed and validated over the last three years by Cellectricon in partnership with AstraZeneca.

"We are excited to partner with TAP who are world-renowned for manufacturing industrial quality automation," says Jonas Ohlsson, CEO at Cellectricon. "To bring this fully automated state-of-the-art high throughput electrophysiology system to the market is a milestone for ion channel screening. The system offers unmatched throughput, cost per data point and reliability/predictability."

"The Automation Partnership (TAP) are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with Cellectricon in automating their unique high throughput microfluidic screening platform," says Andy Morffew Chief Executive Officer. "We are looking forward to supporting this system with a wide range of excellent technical and professional services, designed to ensure customers gain optimum return from their capital investment."
