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 SUB9KITSTM reagents at the Society for Neuroscience (SFN) meeting. The Annual SFN meeting is the industry leading conference for molecular neuroscientists, attracting over 30,000 scientists and industry leaders.
PNI will be launching its Neuro9KIT, specifically designed for the study of genes in diseases of the brain. Additionally, PNI has been invited to present data on the Neuro9KIT at the conference in a talk entitled “ApoE-Enhanced Lipid Nanoparticle Delivery of siRNA Silences Neuronal Gene Expression in vitro & in vivo”. PNI will provide interested customers demonstration Neuro9KITS that fluoresce when administered into neuronal cells, allowing users to rapidly assess the effectiveness of the kit in their given model of disease.
Dr. James Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of PNI, commented, “The Annual SFN conference is the largest scientific meeting related to the brain and the neuroscience. PNI is very excited to launch our neuroscience specific SUB9KITTM, the Neuro9KIT, at the conference and to begin working with neuroscientists to accelerate their understanding of the brain diseases that greatly affect our society. The invitation by the SFN committee to give a podium presentation highlights the latent need for innovative tools, like the Neuro9KIT, to accelerate molecular neuroscience research.”
About Precision NanoSystems, Inc.
At Precision NanoSystems we are creating innovative tools for the development and manufacture of best-in-class nanoparticles for use as medicines, and in medical research.

SUB9KITSTM enable medical researchers to study the role of genes in disease faster and more effectively. SUB9KITSTM deliver genetic materials, like DNA and RNA, into to cells to turn genes under study on or off in models of disease. This allows medical researchers to reverse engineer the cellular pathways that, when genetically changed, cause disease. Adapted from nanomedicine technology currently in clinical trials, SUB9KITSTM allow delivery in models of disease that are more reflective of human illness, including models cancers, neurodegneration, rare genetic disorders, and others. SUB9KITSTM is a Precision NanoSystems brand. For more information please visit: http://sub9kits.com/
About the 2013 Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting
Neuroscience 2013 is the world’s largest meeting focused on scientific discovery related to the brain and nervous system.
