Hepregen Corporation Key Developments
BioTime, Inc. Announces Joint Venture with Hepregen Corporation
Nov 9 15
BioTime, Inc. and Hepregen Corporation have formed a joint venture company Ascendance Biotechnology, Inc. focused on the in vitro cell biology. As part of the transaction, Ascendance combines Hepregen's application-directed, cellular micro-patterning drug and chemical screening technologies with BioTime's ESI BIO research products and proprietary stem cell technologies. Ascendance will offer a portfolio of current and new stem-cell-derived assays and other products and services to pharmaceutical and chemical companies. In exchange for its contribution of certain assets relating to its research products and related patents and technology, BioTime will acquire a majority equity position in Ascendance. Ascendance will continue to market Hepregen's well-known HepatoPac(R) and HepatoMune(R) micro-patterned liver products, and plans to develop new and unique cell-based and micro-patterned products using BioTime's stem cell technologies and broad intellectual property and product portfolio, including BioTime's PureStem(R) embryonic progenitors and ESI embryonic stem cells. Ascendance also expects to develop additional stem-cell-derived products that will be useful for toxicity testing in the cosmetic, environmental, and food industries.
SOLVO Biotechnology and Hepregen Corp. Sign Co-Marketing Pact
Jun 26 15
SOLVO Biotechnology and Hepregen Corp. reported the Study of Xenobiotics, a co-marketing agreement between the companies. This agreement provides for the European marketing of Hepregen's human, monkey, rat and dog application-directed HepatoPac and HepatoMune kits, which are used for liver metabolite analysis, transport studies and predictive and mechanistic toxicology studies. These kits contain human or animal hepatocytes (liver cells) in Hepregen's proprietary micro-patterned, co-culture microtiter tissue culture plates. This agreement provides SOLVO with the opportunity to make services available to its customers using these Hepregen products as well as HepatoPac B-CLEAR products co-developed by Hepregen and Qualyst Transporter Solutions.
Hepregen Corporation Launches First Dog HepatoPac Assay Kit to Evaluate Metabolism in the Laboratory
Jan 29 15
Hepregen Corporation announced the commercial launch of the company's first dog HepatoPac kit designed specifically for metabolite identification and profiling applications. Each kit contains one or more standard 24-well tissue culture plates featuring uniquely configured micro-patterned dog liver cells co-cultured with specially selected stromal cells that support the high level of performance observed in Hepregen's micro-patterned co-culture platform. The dog liver cells (hepatocytes) on these plates mirror the behavior of liver cells in live animals, enabling scientists to generate data that can be useful for evaluation of the metabolism of chemical agents, including drug candidates, improving the design of preclinical experiments. The remarkable flexibility of Hepregen's micro-patterned HepatoPac® platform allowed Hepregen scientists to develop a dog product that provides investigators with uniquely stable canine hepatocytes. The tissue culture maintains functionality and morphology for weeks, enabling experiments not previously possible.
