Cell Robotics Work Station Designed to Identify, Isolate and Research Key Pathogenic Agents Including Anthrax, Small Pox, Botulism and Cancer
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SIPP International Industries, Inc. (OTCBB: SIPN), a diversified company, parent to several divisions in the food and biotechnologies industries, is pleased to announce the acquisition of the cutting-edge Cell Robotics Imaging Work Station. The acquisition was completed through the purchase of a secured note which later went into default.
The Cell Robotics Imaging Work Station will be used to combat the rising rate of global biological terrorism by remotely identifying, isolating single bacterium, and researching key pathogenic agents including anthrax, small pox and botulism. This technology will also be integrated into the company's Z-CAC Controlled Atmosphere Cargo Container. The Cell Robotic Imaging Work Station has many additional uses for investigators, physicians and pathologists, including early detection of cancer and monitoring patients before, during and after medical treatments.
The newly acquired technology upgrades the already successful Cell Robotics Work Station with the addition of an analytical imaging software package and new, more powerful Laser Scissors. The new software provides state-of-the-art image analysis and data management capabilities. "SIPP is planning to work diligently to improve and enhance these products," states Gregg Pearson, Chairman of SIPP International Industries, Inc.
The Imaging Work Station still includes the well-known optical trapping laser and Laser Tweezers, but now offers a choice of three available cutting lasers, or Laser Scissors modules. The increased power of the newest Laser Scissors module will allow researchers to easily dissect fresh, frozen, or fixed tissue sections, in addition to live cells, useful for molecular analysis of biopsies. The Cell Robotics Imaging Work Station is designed for investigators in both basic and applied research, working with stem cells, transgenic animal production and cloning, and functional genomics or proteomics. Additional imaging upgrades are available to include automated cell identification and deconvolution.
"We are very excited about the Cell Robotics Imaging Work Station. This cutting-edge technology will further help the medical community at large as well as assist investigators in combatting the rising use and threat of biological terrorism. We anticipate this acquisition to accelerate our revenues in the near-term," states Gregg Pearson. "The technology also provides a perfect synergy with the Cell Robotics Pathology Work Station. As the industry is evolving toward molecular medicine, the goal of modern physicians and pathologists is to precisely monitor a patient before, during and after treatment. The Cell Robotics Pathology Work Station is designed to provide pathologists with new tools for the retrieval of specific cells to allow molecular analysis of biopsies. Once the specimen of interest is identified by the pathologist, the laser automatically cuts around it using the new auto-cut software," says Pearson.
