Seahorse Bioscience, Inc. Acquires BioProcessors Corp.
Date:3/9/2009

Market Vision, Engineering Know-how, and Smart Plastics Expertise Combine

to bring Practical Cell Technologies to the Life Sciences

N. BILLERICA, Mass., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Seahorse Bioscience, Inc., manufacturer of instruments and consumables for cell based metabolic assays today announced the acquisition of BioProcessors Corp., manufacturer of systems for optimizing biologic drug manufacturing. The two companies will be integrated and operate under the Seahorse name.

A concurrent $6MM financing included Commonwealth Capital, Oxford Bioscience, Flagship Ventures, Life Sciences Partners, FLIR Systems Inc, Healthcare Ventures, New Science Ventures and HLM Venture Partners.

Seahorse applies its expertise in engineering and biology to modernize cell-based science using "smart plastic" consumables and easy to use instruments. Its XF series instruments measure energy consumption and mitochondrial function in cells in a 24 or 96 well microplate with precision and throughput far better than any previous technology. It has enabled new insights into the metabolic deficiencies underlying many neurological diseases, obesity, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease, as well as an early indication of potential toxicities of candidate drug compounds.

The BioProcessors "SimCell" technology modernizes biologic drug manufacturing scale-up and optimization using plastic, microplate-sized cards with six small bioreactors. One technician can run tens, hundreds or even 1,000 simultaneous experiments for weeks or months to select clones, optimize medium, or determine the best process conditions for protein manufacturing. The system offers Biopharmaceutical and CMO customers a strong competitive advantage in developing and optimizing production of biologic products from mammalian cell culture.

"Both the XF and SimCell technologies have reached a key milestone where thought-lea
