Velocity11 and NEXUS Biosystems Partner

Velocity11 and NEXUS Biosystems Partner to Provide Fully Integrated Sample Management
Solution for AstraZeneca’s Global Compound Collection

Poway, Calif. & Menlo Park, Calif.  -- April 11, 2007 -- NEXUS Biosystems and Velocity11 announced that AstraZeneca recently selected the combination of NEXUS Biosystems’ Universal LabStore and Velocity11’s BioCel Automation System to serve as their Charnwood site’s repository for maintaining, managing, and processing their plate based compound collection.

The BioCel – Universal LabStore combination system will become a key element of AstraZeneca Charnwood’s HTS Centre, enabling AstraZeneca to support its current and future screening demand. The combination of Velocity11 and NEXUS technologies and products offers customers an unprecedented solution in terms of sample storage format flexibility, processing speed, sample handling accuracy, and space efficiency. The AstraZeneca system has unique features including integration of conventional liquid handling technology with contact-free acoustic dispensing, as well as proprietary AstraZeneca innovations in storage labware design.

“The Universal LabStore offers a unique combination of speed, flexibility, expandability, and functionality for smaller library sizes that, when combined with Velocity11’s BioCel platform, provides customers with a complete solution for sample management and processing,” said Tommy Bui, VP of Business Development at NEXUS. “We are extremely pleased AstraZeneca again selected the BioCel platform for the sample processing portion of the system based on its speed, throughput, flexibility and our proven track record of successful deployments at AstraZeneca,” said Rob Nail, Founder and CEO at Velocity11.

“We are excited to work closely with Velocity11 and NEXUS to deploy their systems for compound storage and management,” said Dr. Philip Spencer, Compound Management Team Leader at AstraZeneca. “Based on the successful implementation of several BioCel systems at a number of the key AstraZeneca sites coupled with an extensive evaluation of the solutions currently available, we found the capabilities of the NEXUS Universal LabStore in combination with the Velocity11 platform to be uniquely suited to offer both robust efficiency and adaptability to remain competitive throughout their life cycles and address our long-term strategic needs.”

Velocity11 and NEXUS have recently established a partnership to combine both companies’ best-in-class platforms to deliver an extraordinarily effective and seamless solution to its customers. The two companies are in the process of delivering several systems for compound management, maintenance, and high-speed sample processing to leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology research organizations.
