Press Release

July 14, 2013

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada – Precision NanoSystems, Inc. (PNI), a privately held biotechnology company developing proprietary microfluidic-based manufacturing technology for the use and development of cutting edge nanomedicines, today launched its commercial NanoAssemblrTM Benchtop Instrument at the Annual Controlled Release Society (CRS) meeting.  The Annual CRS meeting is the industry leading conference for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic drug developers to discuss nanomedicine and other drug delivery technologies.

Additionally at the conference, Dr. Colin Walsh, a University of British Columbia (UBC) post-doc funded through joint PNI-UBC industry grant, was invited to give a talk on the NanoAssemblrTM platform’s technology entitled “The NanoAssemblrTM Platform : Microfluidics-Based Manufacture of siRNA Nanoparticles”.

Dr. Euan Ramsay, Chief Operating Officer of PNI, commented, “The CRS meeting is a conference of industry and academic leaders in nanomedicine developers.  The NanoAssemblrTM Benchtop Instrument allows nanomedicine developers to create cutting edge nanomedicines faster and more reliably.   The invitation for Precision NanoSystems to give a presentation highlights the novelty of the microfluidic approach and the latent need for this advancement in the field.  We appreciate the support of the CRS committee and of the nanomedicine community in general.”
