BASi Announces First-of-Its-Kind Pivotal Study with Data Sciences
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- December 07, 2012
BASi (Bioanalytical Systems, Inc.) (NASDAQ: BASI) today announced that it is
collaborating with Data Sciences International (DSI), a biomedical research
company focused on preclinical systems physiology and pharmacology, to conduct
a first-of-its-kind study combining BASi’s Culex^®-L automated sampling system
with DSI’s newest large animal telemetry technology, PhysioTel^™ Digital.
In this pivotal study, BASi’s Culex^®-L automated in vivo sampling system will
simultaneously collect biological samples at pre-programmed intervals while
DSI telemetry devices will collect heart rate, blood pressure and other
cardiovascular information. Previously, gathering all of these types of data
required two separate experiments and only discontinuous data collection was
“By combining Culex^® with telemetry, the automated blood sampling and
telemetry (ABST) system will reduce costs, the number of test subjects,
subject stress levels, and deliver better data, which will lead to better
decisions,” said Jacqueline M. Lemke, interim president & CEO and CFO of BASi.
“This study lays the groundwork for additional safety pharmacology studies
that further complement BASi’s long-established and well-respected CRO
“We’re responding to customers’ requests for more and better pharmacokinetic
data. We know how important these data are for early decision-making in the
drug discovery process. Combining DSI’s telemetry with BASi’s automation is a
natural fit,” said Dr. Dusty Sarazan, Vice President and CSO of DSI.
