The MaxCyte STX Scalable Transfection System to be Launched at the SBS Symposium on Cell-Based Assays

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- MaxCyte, Inc., the pioneer in scalable, high performance cell loading systems, announces that it will be launching the MaxCyte STX Scalable Transfection System at the Society for Biomolecular Sciences (SBS) Symposium "Cell Based Assays: Innovations in Reagents, Technology, and Screening," to be held in King of Prussia, PA, on Thursday and Friday, October 23-24, 2008. In addition, MaxCyte will sponsor the scientific session "Assay Development - Present Realities" on Thursday afternoon, October 23, 2008.

"MaxCyte is pleased to have this opportunity to support the Society for Biomolecular Sciences in promoting scientific discussion on the challenges in cell based assays," says Dr. Madhusudan Peshwa, Vice President of Research and Development at MaxCyte. "We believe that the MaxCyte STX Scalable Transfection System addresses many of these challenges, including reducing the time and expense to develop relevant assays for high throughput screening. The MaxCyte STX technology enables the large

scale transfection of primary cells, cell lines, and stem cells with multiple loading agents at the same time, resulting in more relevant screening systems. This scale and capability can reduce bottlenecks and

improve the productivity of drug discovery groups."

According to MaxCyte CEO Doug Doerfler, "The MaxCyte STX is being viewed by the pharmaceutical industry as an enabling technology for cell modification for both research and larger scale cell-based applications in drug discovery. The MaxCyte STX can produce a large number of transfected cells in minutes compared to current time-consuming and inconsistent methods. More assays can be developed and performed in a shorter period of time, increasing the likelihood of finding a successful drug candidate."

MaxCyte scientists will be available at the SBS Meeting to answer any technical questions relative to the performance and operation of the MaxCyte STX Scalable Transfection System.

About MaxCyte

MaxCyte specializes in cell modification technologies to enable the discovery, development, manufacturing, and delivery of innovative therapeutic products. The MaxCyte transfection technology was originally developed as an enabling technology for cell therapy and is currently being used in a number of clinical trials around the world. Drawing upon this expertise in cell loading for cell therapy, MaxCyte introduced this transfection technology into drug discovery applications as the MaxCyte STX Scalable Transfection System. The MaxCyte STX allows for the rapid, scalable, and reagent-free cell transfection for cell based assays, preclinical protein production, and other cell-based applications.
