Yokogawa Electric Corporation and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) announce the signing of an agreement to cooperate in research and development activities to enhance the functions of the CellVoyager™ CV6000 drug discovery support system, which is used to screen candidate compounds for new drugs. This cooperative agreement brings together the DZNE’s knowledge and expertise in research on new targets in the field of neurodegenerative diseases and the advanced drug discovery support system technology developed by Yokogawa. With DZNE’s strong translational focus and an intense cooperation with to the universities and their clinics at all DZNE sites, the collaboration is expected to bring forward the translation of knowledge from fundamental discoveries into clinical applications. This will accelerate the discovery of new targets and the transfer of research results to clinical applications. Also the pharmaceutical industry is striving to increase the speed and efficiency of new drug development. To accomplish this, it is necessary to automate and accelerate the process of screening candidate compounds, which can number in the millions. This as well applies to advanced molecular research at academic institutions like the DZNE. The cooperation gives the DZNE the opportunity to carry out large-scale complex experiments, which in the past has been possible mainly in an industrial environment.

Yokogawa’s CellVoyager CV6000 is the world’s fastest cell function imaging screening system, and it produces clear images that are of the highest resolution. This high-throughput drug discovery support system boosts the efficiency of new drug development.

The DZNE’s mission is to understand the causes and risk factors that predispose to neurodegeneration and to develop new therapeutic and health care strategies. The DZNE is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the governments of the DZNE sites. Today, approximately 300 researchers work at the DZNE. "At the DZNE we are focusing our effort on building a scientific environment that fosters translational science in the field of neurodegeneration" says Dr. Eugenio Fava, DZNE’s Head of Research Services and Facilities. "In this context we have developed a state of the art assay development and screening facility that includes the CellVoyager CV6000. Working with Yokogawa to develop new technologies in the field of high-content screening provides unique opportunities to make new discoveries for neurodegenerative diseases. We are glad to be working with Yokogawa and we are looking forward to a highly productive collaboration."

Under the terms of this agreement, Yokogawa will acquire know-how on the development of sophisticated cellular assays that might find application in drug development processes and will use this to enhance certain functions in the CellVoyager CV6000 that will better meet the needs of researchers and improve ease of use. At DZNE, it will also give demonstrations of the CellVoyager system to potential clients. Through the use of the most sophisticated equipment and software, the DZNE will be able to more efficiently conduct research using, for example, primary neuron based cellular assays.

Toshiyuki Suzuki, head of Yokogawa's Life Science Headquarters, says, “We feel honored about and have high hopes for this joint development. Combining CellVoyager CV6000’s imaging and analysis technologies with the DZNE’s neurodegenerative disease research know-how will surely make significant progress in illuminating their development mechanism and identifying potential cures. We look forward to working with the DZNE researchers.”

Yokogawa is pleased to have been selected by DZNE, and this agreement helps pave the way for Yokogawa to become No.1 in the drug discovery support system market.
