ChanTest Launches New Business to Provide Validated Ion Channel Expressing Cell Lines to the Research Community
Date:8/6/2008

Company expands beyond core business of discovery and safety services to meet the evolving needs of the drug discovery and development community

BOSTON and CLEVELAND, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- ChanTest, the world-leading provider of validated ion channel-expressing cell lines and services for drug-discovery and development applications, will make a selection of its fully validated cell lines available to researchers through a new Web site: http://www.chantestchannels.com. ChanTest Founder and CEO Arthur ("Buzz") Brown announced the new business offering today at the Drug Discovery & Development Innovative Technologies conference in Boston. ChanTest's initial launch will be of nine cell lines that the company has validated on the major ion channel platforms, including manual patch clamp, PatchXpress(R), QPatch, IonWorks(R), Quattro(TM), and FLIPR-Tetra(R). Optimization on all platforms is in progress. According to Dr. Brown, the company will expand the number of cell lines available during 2008 to 64.

"As the preeminent ion channel company, our goal is to serve all the ion channel needs of pharmaceutical and biotech customers -- from early functional screens for profiling drug candidates or ranking within profiles during the drug-discovery process -- to a complete set of in vitro GLP service products for cardiac risk assessment," said Dr. Brown. "However, some companies prefer to maintain testing in house. For those customers, we're pleased to offer a new way that researchers can benefit from ChanTest's ion channel expertise and exhaustive study of the characteristics of our ion channel library -- by purchasing our validated cell lines. We want to ensure that all researchers have the best opportunity to identify ion channels as pharmaceutically relevant targets and accelerate work on providing new drugs to those targets."
