Yamaha Motor Releases the Cell Picking & Imaging System CELL HANDLER(TM)

Jaa

Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:7272) (ISIN:JP3942800008) announced today that it has developed the cell picking/imaging system CELL HANDLER TM. This device performs part of the testing process to evaluate pharmaceutical efficacy, such as in the development of new drugs and anti-cancer agents. It will enable the development of high-efficacy therapeutic drugs sooner and at lower cost, which will in-turn contribute to reducing medical costs.

CELL HANDLER TM enables one-by-one selection of target cells and transfers them to a microplate, while simultaneously capturing/digitalizing images – a process that was very difficult with high throughput and accuracy using the conventional manual method.

Using Yamaha Motor’s applied surface mounter ultra high-speed and high-precision pick & place technology, newly developed picking & dispensing technology, and image processing technology work to process even small and fragile cells. A unique and specialized disposable tip and chamber have also been developed by Yamaha Motor to suit the CELL HANDLER TM system.

There is currently strong growth in the market for business utilizing cells, and with the number of cancer sufferers rising every year, there is a demand for further improvement in quality and work efficiency for anti-cancer sensitivity tests and biomarker tests. The development of the CELL HANDLER TM system is part of Yamaha Motor’s objective to accelerate and strengthen growth strategies under the three-year New Medium-Term Management Plan started in 2016.

The Geneva Association: Life Insurers Should Prepare for Implications of Genetics in Highly Fragmented Regulatory Landscape25.9.2017 15:00Tiedote

The Geneva Association, the leading international think tank of the insurance industry, has released the research paper Genetics and Life Insurance: A view into the microscope of regulation, in which it reviews key aspects of the use of genetic information in life insurance. The use of genetic information for life, disability, critical illness and long-term care insurance is likely to increase in spite of a highly fragmented regulatory environment. The growing availability of genetic testing at ever lower prices is already giving insureds the option to purchase online “direct-to-consumer” tests. One of the questions raised is whether policyholders should be required to share their genetic information with life insurers. The paper focuses specifically on the regulatory implications of genetic testing. Ronald Klein, Director of The Geneva Association’s Global Ageing res
