RainDance and Scripps to Collaborate on Targeted Sequencing for 'Wellderly' Study
Date:8/28/2008

LEXINGTON, Mass., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- RainDance Technologies, Inc., a provider of innovative droplet-based solutions for human health and disease research, today announced a collaboration with the Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI) to utilize RainDance's new RainStorm(TM) technology as a solution to a key bottleneck in large-scale targeted sequencing studies.

"RainDance is proud to support STSI in its exciting effort to discover inherited genetic variations that may play a role in preserving health," said Chris McNary, President and Chief Executive Officer, RainDance Technologies. "We believe our collaboration will accelerate the completion of the program's research objectives by using RainDance's Sequence Enrichment application to enhance the efficiency of STSI's next-generation sequencing technology. In addition, our participation will help optimize experimental procedures as we prepare for release of our platform in the fourth quarter," McNary said.

STSI's genomic researchers are now looking to America's healthy elderly, known as the wellderly -- those 80 years and older with no history of chronic disease -- to help them unlock the genetic secrets behind lifelong health. The Wellderly Study is currently recruiting volunteers from across America to donate their DNA to the project's gene bank. These samples will be studied by STSI researchers to uncover the protective elements of the human genetic code. RainDance's initial work will be a proof-of-principle study to show the effectiveness of its RainStorm technology for amplifying a large number of genomic loci across a diverse set of samples.

"Looking at the genes of healthy elderly people is a unique approach to understanding the underpinning biology of health," said Eric J. Topol, M.D., Director of Scripps Translational Science Institute. "This new technology will assist us in our effort to unlock these genetic secrets of lifelong health."
