Cell Projects licenses Electroporation Technologies from Queen’s University, Canada
News Oct 15, 2008
Cell Projects has entered into a wide ranging commercial license and joint development agreement with Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada, covering several new Electroporation platform technologies for Adherent and InSitu Cell Electroporation.
The technology allows DNA, peptides, siRNA and many other molecules to be gently transported into cultured, adherent cells while the cells are still attached to their growing surface. The data shows dramatic improvements of sensitivity and operation over existing methodologies.
Tom Hole MD at Cell Projects says “the InSitu technology will enable a greater understanding of specific cellular activities that to date have been difficult to analyze yet are known to be important in further understanding the mechanism of cancer, and other biological problems”.
Scientists at McGill have found the answer to a question that perplexed Charles Darwin; if natural selection works at the level of the individual, fighting for survival and reproduction, how can a single colony produce worker ants that are so dramatically different in size – from “minor” workers to large-headed soldiers with huge mandibles – especially if they are sterile?
