sigma-aldrich (SIAL) Key Developments

BioReliance Licenses B-CLEAR Technology from Qualyst Transporter Solutions for Drug Transporter Studies

BioReliance, Sigma-Aldrich Corporation's biologics and early-development services business under SAFC Commercial announced a non-exclusive license agreement with Qualyst Transporter Solutions for its proprietary B-CLEAR technology. Used in conjunction with BioReliance technologies, B-CLEAR enables researchers to assess drug disposition and drug interactions within complex, whole-cell liver systems. When applied to properly functioning hepatic cells, B-CLEAR opens the bile pockets (analogous to bile canaliculi in vivo), allowing material that has been transported from inside the cell into the bile pocket to be measured. The efflux measurements can then facilitate evaluation of biliary clearance, transporter interactions and intracellular concentration. Until now, the study of the individual role of a transporter in primary hepatocytes and HepaRG cells, which express all of the hepatic transporters, was very difficult. However, by using Sigma-Aldrich CompoZr Zinc Finger Nuclease (ZFN) technology, HepaRG transporter knockout cell lines have been created empowering more accurate research investigations of liver transporters. The B-CLEAR technology enables effective measurement of uptake and efflux into the bile pocket, and the overall integrated effect of transporters and metabolism can also be evaluated.
