eBioscience Announces Commercial Launch of eFluor Organic Dye Line
(Nanowerk News) eBioscience Corporation, a leading
global provider of innovative, high-quality cell analysis reagents, announced
today the expansion of its eFluor™ brand with the commercial launch of the
eFluor™ Organic Dye product line.
"We are very pleased to announce the addition of several novel organic
dyes to our eFluor™ brand," said Todd R. Nelson Ph.D., CEO of eBioscience.
"The development and commercialization of innovative, high-quality, multicolor
cellular analysis research reagents remains a cornerstone of eBioscience's
business," Nelson continued. "The addition of the organic dyes to our
eFluor™ brand product line serves to both diversify our customer base and
extend our reach into a rapidly growing segment of the market focused on
"We are particularly excited about our ability to offer an increasing
number of products, such as our eFluor™ 450 Organic Dye, as a replacement
for Pacific Blue(R), providing our customers greater flexibility when choosing
reagents for use in multicolor flow cytometry experiments," commented Tony
Ward, VP Commercial Operations for eBioscience. "In addition, we are also
launching a series of new APC eFluor™ 780 tandem conjugates that, because
they have greater fluorescence intensity than competitor products, provide
significant benefit to researchers designing multicolor cellular analysis
experiments," Ward continued. Mike Boyer, Ph.D., eBioscience's Director of
Marketing commented, "Taken together our rapidly expanding portfolio of
eFluor™ Organic Dyes and nanocrystal reagents, when combined with our
leading edge portfolio of biological content, facilitates our ability to keep
eBioscience's customers at the forefront of scientific discovery."
With the launch of over 40 eFluor™ Organic Dye products, eBioscience
Corporation is well positioned to offer to its customers an increasingly broad
array of novel products that employ proprietary technologies optimized for use
with standard reagents. Importantly, eFluor™ Organic Dyes have been
designed and optimized for use with a variety of existing organic
fluorochromes and nanocrystal technologies, including eBioscience's own
eFluor™ Nanocrystals product line, and as such, provide optimal flexibility
to researchers when designing multicolor experiments in the areas of flow
cytometry, in vivo imaging and microscopy.
