Press release formEisai London Research Laboratories Licenses OriGene’s FlagArrayTM for Genome-Wide
Rockville, MD August 1, 2005 – OriGene Technologies Inc. today announced that Eisai London Research
Laboratories has licensed OriGene’s FlagArray platform for high-throughput drug target discovery.
"We are pleased to formalize our relationship with OriGene,” said Yukio Nishizawa, PhD, Director of
Research for Eisai London Research Labs. “We believe OriGene’s FlagArray to be an innovative
technology that will prove an excellent platform for use in our discovery programs."
The OriGene FlagArray(s) are expression-ready arrays of full-length cDNA plasmids for use in high-
throughput, genome wide target identification and validation. The arrays allow scientists to easily query
thousands of genes and their roles in disease phenotypes and pathways. This platform has been used
by several leading pharmaceutical companies providing numerous discoveries. One example of the
power of this system can be seen in Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., 2005, pp 1927-32.
"OriGene’s mission is to build the most comprehensive collection of human full-length cDNAs in
expression ready vectors and to apply this collection to systematic studies of human gene functions to all
researchers,” said Karl Kovacs PhD, Vice President of Alliance Management at OriGene. “We are
pleased to support the drug discovery and target validation efforts at Eisai with the FlagArray platform.
The ability to over-express and test the effects of thousands of proteins will provide important leads to
understanding complex intra-cellular interactions.”
