Bayer donates equipment to Children's Hospital, Oakland for infectious disease research

Oakland, CA March 16, 2005-- The Berkeley, CA division of Bayer Biological Products (BP), a division of Bayer HealthCare, has donated several sophisticated laboratory instrumentation devices valued at more than $100,000 to enhance infectious disease research at Children's Hospital & Research Center at Oakland's research center known as Children's Hospital Research Institute (CHORI).

Housed inside the research institute's new Center for Immunobiology and Vaccine Development (CIVD), the equipment includes a Flow Cytometer and two high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) systems. The CIVD, which opened last month, is a $5.6 million, state-of-the-art facility that brings together a variety of research programs focused on understanding the immunology of infectious diseases, both existing and emerging, and developing vaccines to prevent them. The equipment donated by Bayer BP will enhance the capacity for detailed investigations and research studies at the CIVD.

"Because this equipment is so specialized, it is usually only available at much larger research institutions," said Gregory Moe, PhD, research scientist at Children's Research Center, also known as the Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI). "Here at CHORI, the equipment will increase our capabilities to search for new vaccine candidates and study the effectiveness of vaccines for preventing disease caused by bacterial pathogens," he said.

The equipment provided by Bayer's Berkeley Facility will be used for biological sample separation and testing, nucleic acid analysis, pipetting robotics and high precision cell characterization. Also included with the gift are standard equipment needed for routine laboratory functions: microscopes, centrifuges, pipettors, electronic scales and power supplies.

"The equipment will allow us to study interactions between antibodies and cells, purify molecules and measure binding interactions between molecules that are available
