WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. -- GeneThera Inc. has chosen the Tecan Freedom EVO(TM) system to aid in its test process for mad cow disease as well as other veterinary diseases.



The system will be installed in its Wheat Ridge, Colo., lab as well as in each testing facility the GenaThera opens in the future.



"The Tecan product is a superior system that will allow GeneThera to streamline our live animal blood testing and allow us to automatically run our tests with 100-percent accuracy," said Tony Milici, CEO.

All training will be done in our Wheat Ridge facility prior to sending each new system to our international labs."



Jeff Aufmann, Tecan's vice president of sales, said, "We are proud to have GeneThera select Tecan as their equipment and testing partner. To have the opportunity to advance GeneThera's live animal testing assay with our product and to work with Dr. Milici throughout GeneThera's labs is of great importance to our company."
