Plato BioPharma and ADInstruments Enter Strategic Partnership for Pre-Clinical Research Laboratory Training


9/30/2010 11:23:47 AM

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - September 30, 2010) - ADInstruments and Plato BioPharma have established a strategic training partnership agreement centered on in vivo pre-clinical research techniques. This partnership will provide advanced education courses with hands-on instruction in a state-of-the-art facility, featuring the latest in life science research equipment technologies.

Dr. Craig Plato, CEO and founder of Plato BioPharma, has used ADInstruments PowerLab and LabChart software extensively since 2003 with 6 systems actively used at the lab bench. Research focus has been primarily diverse organ function including the cardiovascular, renal and pulmonary systems in support of drug discovery. Dr. Plato's approach in the lab is straightforward about project efficiency, "In this fast-paced, dynamic environment, we need flexibility to respond to changing project demands and ease of use so we may rapidly cross-train our staff, all while maintaining the precision and standardization to enable throughput to support project decisions -- the PowerLab with LabChart systems allow the best of both worlds."

A willingness to open the doors to Dr. Plato's new company to researchers stems from a long-term appreciation of bench scientists requirements for high calibre data acquisition and analysis systems. "Being able to evaluate waveforms and organ system performance in real-time allows on-the-fly adjustments to efficiently produce very high quality data and the software's powerful data interface allows rapid, but careful and thorough data analysis and archiving."

An educational partnership between the two companies grew from many years of engaging open dialog on ever changing application of hardware and software. It was only natural to extend this dialog to others for the betterment of the cardiovascular sciences. Dr. Plato's feels his expert staff will pair nicely with ADInstruments for the planned series of workshops. "We find ADInstruments sales and technical support staff extremely helpful and engaged to help our team solve any hardware or software related challenges. We welcome the opportunity to display the ease and utility of ADInstruments' PowerLab system and LabChart software to enable robust, state-of-the-art pre-clinical research."
