Pasadena Bio Collaborative acquires new lab equipment

Pasadena Bio Collaborative has recently acquired a new Bio-Rad CFX96 with C1000 RT-PCR Detection System. Continually updating our equipment is important to meeting current tenant needs, attracting new tenants, & providing training opportunities.

“Poseidon is a pre-clinical stage start-up biotechnology company with a patented platform-technology to develop new biological therapeutics using an alternative protein modality. The latest addition to Pasadena Bio communal equipment is the BioRad RT- PCR machine. This machine will help us to validate our lead candidates for IND enabling studies with a well-defined assay. The assay has the capability to define the candidates with development potential, drastically shortening the candidate selection time and cost.”Rajika Perera, CEO
