“The Colorado BioScience Association’s Rising Star award recognizes early stage growth companies that have made great strides over the current year. ViroCyt was selected not only because their innovations are changing the landscape of virus detection technologies, but also because they are committed to delivering meaningful improvements to vaccines and antiviral development,” said April Giles, President and CEO of the Colorado BioScience Association.
“We are delighted to have been recognized by the industry as an innovator, especially with the growing awareness of the threat posed by emerging infectious diseases, such as Ebola, and the critical need to accelerate the pace of vaccine development,” stated Robert Kline, President and CEO of ViroCyt. “By replacing outdated and time-consuming methods, the Virus Counter technology is shortening the time to market for these life-saving products.”
The third generation of the Virus Counter, the 3100, was launched in March of 2014 with the primary goal of providing a system capable of withstanding the rigors of biologics manufacturing environments. This includes increased stability, GMP compliance and the addition of an autosampler for walkaway processing of up to 96 samples per run.
