Lunaphore’s COMET™ platform is the only fully automated, high-throughput, hyperplex platform with superior tissue profiling capabilities. Its capacity allows the generation of high-quality and reproducible data on large cohorts of samples in days. In contrast to other spatial biology solutions, COMET™ works with off-the-shelf, label-free primary antibodies, enabling customers to use their trusted antibodies and making panel design fast and flexible. Thanks to its versatility, COMET™ has a wide range of research applications across multiple disciplines and all stages of research and drug development.
Sirona Dx is a highly-specialized technical CRO and pioneer of single-cell and spatial biology, having launched ultra-high parameter, multiplexed single-cell services to biopharma in 2018. Their innovative, technology-agnostic service capabilities contributed to their selection as a Top 10 CRO of 2021 by Medhealth Outlook.
“Platform selection is one of the most important decisions to make when developing multiplexed tissue imaging panels for our clients”, said Andrew Brown, Ph.D., Chief Commercial Officer at Sirona Dx. “We are extremely pleased to partner with Lunaphore to integrate the COMET™ platform into our spatial-omics operations. The ability to select off-the-shelf, label-free primary antibodies is highly advantageous and reduces the time required to develop robust, highly reproducible assays.
“The deployment of COMET™ at Sirona Dx is particularly meaningful for Lunaphore as it helps to address the large demand from US-based biotech and biopharmaceutical companies to access highly reproducible hyperplex data,” said Déborah Heintze, Chief Marketing Officer at Lunaphore. “Furthermore, Sirona Dx’s CLIA certification and deep understanding of pharmaceutical regulatory requirements add significant value for scientists looking to adopt spatial biology tools to accelerate translational research”.

AriBio Co., Ltd. to Present Biomarker Data for AR1001 from the Mild to Moderate Alzheimer’s Disease Phase 2 Study at the International Conference on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases and Related Neurological Disorders (AD/PD™ 2023)31.3.2023 19:00:00 EEST | Press release
AriBio Co., Ltd. announced that David Greeley MD, Chief Medical Officer at AriBio, will present biomarker data from the completed phase 2 study in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease who were treated with 10mg and 30mg of AR1001. AR1001 is a potent PDE5 inhibitor with preliminary efficacy in cognition, and preclinical effects on neuron apoptosis inhibition, promotion of neurogenesis, increase in neuroplasticity, and stimulation of autophagy to remove toxic proteins. The phase 2 study was a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-center trial to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of AR1001 over 26 and 52 weeks of treatment in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. The trial enrolled 210 patients at 21 research centers in the United States. Plasma collected from patients at baseline, week 26 and week 52 was analyzed by Quantarix using the Simoa HD-X analyzer. Meaningful, statistically significant changes were found over 52 weeks of treatm
