WELLESLEY, Mass., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Xceed Molecular, a pioneer in the development of cost-effective, easy-to-use gene-expression analysis systems, announced that the company will launch its Ziplex Automated Gene-Expression System for research use only at the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) Annual Meeting and Exhibit, which opens today at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. The first integrated system designed for automated gene-expression analysis, the Ziplex System comprises an automated workstation, TipChip consumable arrays, and reagents.
Xceed designed the Ziplex System to make routine molecular diagnostics both feasible and affordable. "The routine clinical laboratory will require a system that is reliable and easy to operate," said Xceed's President and CEO, David Deems. "As a fully automated and integrated platform, the Ziplex System is unmatched for both its ease-of-use and reliability of results, delivering superior accuracy, reproducibility, speed, and scalability at significantly lower cost than conventional array- or PCR-based systems. The Ziplex System allows researchers to perform testing at approximately one-third the cost and in one-third the time of conventional platforms. After the sample preparation has been completed, the hands-on time to process eight samples is approximately 20 minutes. We believe our System will help make the promise of personalized medicine a reality."
While today is the official launch of the Ziplex System, biomedical
researchers across the country are already familiar with the system's
performance, according to Deems. The company has been offering Expression
Services for the last year, and has presented data at a number of important
conferences. Deems continued, "Xceed is developing a pipeline of diagnostic
assays for use on th
