Brooks Automation and BioCision Announce Strategic Collaboration

Brooks Automation, Inc. and BioCision, LLC announced they have established a relationship to support the development of technologies to improve temperature control and standardization in the use of biomaterials across multiple industries, including pre-clinical and clinical research and product development. Under the terms of the agreement, Brooks Automation has made a $4 million equity investment in BioCision. This new collaboration will leverage BioCision's proven expertise in the development of unique mobile temperature management products and technologies together with Brooks Automation's advanced research and production capabilities in automated systems for sample storage. The research and product design and engineering teams from both companies will work together to advance development of new, highly adaptable and scalable products to support a range of needs in biomaterial sample handling and biobanking, including products that are fully compatible with existing automated systems and that can serve as stand-alone solutions.

BioCision and ATCC Agree to Develop and Distribute Line of Coolproducts(Tm) for Use in Broad Range of Biomaterial Sample Storage and Handling Procedures

BioCision announced a new collaboration with ATCC, the world's leading provider of authenticated biological material. ATCC debuted the first product in this collaboration, the alcohol-free CoolCell(R) LX cell cryopreservation container, at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) 2013 meeting in April. BioCision and ATCC are exploring additional custom-design ATCC branded products from the BioCision's CoolProducts(TM) platform, which may be used and distributed by ATCC. BioCision's CoolProduct devices are specially designed and engineered to achieve temperature uniformity when cooling, freezing, thawing, and handling biomedical samples, ensuring reproducible temperature profiles and instantly standardizing temperature-sensitive lab procedures. All ATCC cell-freezing protocols are being updated to recommend the use of CoolCell LX containers to maintain the optimal controlled freezing rate when cryopreserving a variety of cells and cell lines for archival storage. ATCC supplies characterized, authenticated cells, bacteria, fungi, viruses, and reagents, along with services for characterization, authentication, mycoplasma detection, and repository management to the world-wide life science community. ATCC has been associated with high quality throughout its long tenure, and in 2007 it was the first biological resource center to become accredited by the American National Standards Institute, as a standards development organization. Standardization of lab practices is paramount to ATCC's work and mission.
