Medicyte, inventors of the upcyte® technology announced today BioTag Ltd. as their distributor in Israel.

"We are happy to distribute for Medicyte, because we were immediately excited about their cutting edge technology and products!" stated Yossi Doron, Business Development Manager at BioTag Ltd.

"Biotag's technical knowledge and practical expertise immediately convinced us that we should work together. The biotech market in Israel is growing and we cannot keep track of it from afar. We are happy that we have found such a highly professional partner to distribute our products in Israel" commented Marion Dumitraskovic, Sales and Marketing Manager at Medicyte.

About Upcyte® Technology

Currently, the supply of commercially available primary cells is sporadic, and their low proliferative capacity limits their use in higher throughput cell-based assays. The use of immortalized cell lines to predict human effects, on the other hand, is compromised by their transformed and non-healthy phenotype.

Using Medicyte´s innovative upcyte® technology, primary cells are driven into proliferation, thus allowing controlled cell proliferation without inducing immortalization, uncontrolled cell growth or changing the typical characteristics. Therefore, upcyte® cells that are available in sufficient quantities with a consistent quality can be applied to cell-based assays for use in research, screening and drug development.

About Medicyte

Medicyte is specialised in the controlled generation and standardisation of human primary cell products in virtually unlimited quantities and of highest quality for cell therapy and cell- based R&D. Medicyte's proprietary technologies "upcyte®" and "vericyte®" enable the expansion of human hepatocytes and other cell types from different donors in a standardized manner, thereby, for the first time, making these cells commercially available in high quantities and consistent quality. Already, pharmaceutical companies are considering using upcyte® hepatocytes for in vitro ADMET testing as alternatives to primary human cells.
