EWING, N.J., Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Essential Pharmaceuticals, LLC has launched a new website for its novel tissue transport and preservation media - Clin-Ess®. Clin-Ess is a chemically-defined, non-toxic and animal component free medium that preserves tissue and enzymatic activity within cells. Clin-Ess holds cells in stasis for several days at 4°C so that downstream applications can be performed when convenient. Clin-Ess also enhances flexibility by maintaining sample viability during shipment and storage without crosslinking proteins or flash freezing.
Biopsy tissue taken from patients during different stages of disease yields a wealth of phenotypic and metabolic information used to understand disease mechanisms. The tissue sample is priceless and often cannot be easily replaced. A consequence of having to stabilize the sample immediately is that scientists are forced to choose a single media, which is often a fixative such as formalin. Even though formalin fixation is simple and inexpensive, it limits many downstream bioassays that can be used, including antibodies used for detection of cellular proteins. Flash freezing is an alternative, but is also problematic to conduct cell culture or test active cytoplasmic enzymes.
Clin-Ess provides flexibility to scientists and pathologists who study tissues, and the new website is designed with them in mind. The intuitive website navigation of the new site enables visitors to quickly find data that speaks to the unique challenges of tissue transport and analysis. In addition, Clin-Ess is available for purchase through the Essential Pharmaceuticals online marketplace, which can also be found on the site.
"Clin-Ess is a novel approach to tissue preservation that will change how scientists ship tissue and study disease states," says Allan Weber, CEO. "This new website was created to improve the experience for scientists and pathologists to review the information and decide if Clin-Ess is a fit for them."
