Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCMKTS:PBIO) on Wednesday unveiled its latest addition to its product line based on a patented and powerful pressure cycling technology ("PCT") platform, the Barocycler 2320EXTREME ("2320EXT").
The product unveiling took place during the recent annual conference of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry ("ASMS") in San Antonio, Texas.
Pressure BioSciences also announced that scientists from six separate research groups made presentations on the company's PCT-based product line at the same international conference.
Results presented indicated that the company's PCT-based instruments and consumables, when used in the preparation of samples for mass spectrometric analysis, resulted in critically enabling qualitative and quantitative improvements and/or improved time or cost efficiency.
Presentations were made by scientists from the Children's Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition - Food and Drug Administration (FDA/CFSAN), Northwestern University, and Pressure BioSciences together with Protifi LLC.
The ASMS Conference is one of the largest annual meetings of mass spectrometry professionals worldwide. The Company took advantage of this opportunity to unveil the Barocycler 2320EXTREME. This addition to PBI's product line was designed with a number of new and enhanced features and benefits that should enable scientists better access to the biomolecules (e.g., proteins, lipids, nucleic acids) in samples being studied, with the potential to result in new biological insights and discoveries, and rapid growth for PBI. The Barocycler 2320EXT is expected to become the centerpiece of the recently announced co-marketing agreement with global life sciences analytical technologies leader SCIEX.
"Our participation in the recent ASMS Conference greatly exceeded our expectations, both in relation to the unveiling of the new Barocycler 2320EXT, and to the number and content of presentations by well-respected scientific groups on the advantages/benefits of our PCT-based product line when used in the critical area of sample preparation," said Dr. Nate Lawrence, Vice President of Marketing and Sales.
"We had nearly 1,000 attendees visit our exhibition booth and hospitality suite. A number of these visitors were genuinely interested in learning about the advantages of PCT, and the features and benefits of the new Barocycler 2320EXT. We are actively following up with these contacts, and expect that some of these scientists/groups will become PBI customers in the near future," he added.
