Magellan Biosciences Announces Agreement with Bruker to Provide Microbiology Tools to Battle Drug Resistance
Date:4/13/2011

CHELMSFORD, Mass., April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Magellan Biosciences, a global manufacturer of products designed to make diagnostic testing easier, more cost-effective, and less labor intensive, today announced an agreement with Bruker Corporation (NASDAQ: BRKR) to deliver microbial identification from cultures using MALDI-TOF proteomic finger-printing, along with Magellan's TREK-brand susceptibility tests to clinical, research, and veterinary laboratory customers. The compatible product offerings are expected to improve the microbiology laboratory workflow, offering fast, reliable results that enable clinicians to make more-informed treatment decisions. Prescribing the right antimicrobial drug at the lowest possible dose to eradicate a bacterial, fungal, or yeast infection is not only important to the specific patient's health, but also critical to the global efforts to combat the burgeoning problem of drug resistance.

Under the terms of the agreement, Magellan will develop and test an integrated cross-platform software interface that will enable microbial identification information gathered on the Bruker MALDI Biotyper mass spectrometry-based proteomic finger-printing system to be combined with Magellan's Sensititre® susceptibility results. The software will allow laboratories to generate custom expert rules, which can guide laboratory and clinical action upon receipt of results from both systems. Magellan's U.S. microbiology sales force will then promote the complementary product offerings.

"We are pleased to offer these enhanced microbiology tools that will deliver complete, actionable information to improve patient care and fight deadly drug resistance," said Magellan President and Chief Executive Officer Hiroshi Uchida, Ph.D. "We can soon combine the MALDI Biotyper's rapid
