Evotec Technologies provides EVOscreen® and Opera to Korea

Hamburg, Germany - Evotec Technologies GmbH (Evotec), a supplier of innovative tools and technologies for life sciences and pharmaceutical drug discovery, today announced the successful set-up of Evotec's ultra high throughput screening system in the Institut Pasteur Korea which will contribute to a strong forth quarter for the Company.
Evotec has delivered and successfully acceptance tested its uHTS system EVOscreen® as well as two high content imaging readers Opera(TM) in Korea. The combination of both platforms for industrial drug discovery allows high content analysis at ultra high-throughput. State-of-the-art, novel biochemical, cellular and whole organism assays can be run. EVOscreen® can perform assays down to 1 microlitre, providing unique advantages in compound saving and unrivalled data quality. It has been fully validated to run unattended, which qualifies this platform as the only uHTS system worldwide that may be operated in P3 security level laboratories.
"We are extremely proud to be the partner of choice of the Institut Pasteur Korea, a brand new life science research centre with outstanding biological expertise. The delivery of an EVOscreen® system is a cornerstone for Evotec Technologies since it is its first installation in Asia, and the first in an academic environment ever, giving us clear visibility of our products in the rapidly growing Asian market. It also demonstrates that EVOscreen® has become a very attractive tool for academia to adopt revolutionary, new experimental strategies," stated Dr Rolf Günther, CSO at Evotec Technologies GmbH.
