LE PERRAY-EN-YVELINES, France
- Oct. 24, 2014
-- tebu-bio (Le Perray, France) has signed an agreement with Spirochrome to bring European researchers access to Spirochrome’
s live cell imaging tools through their network of local offices in 9 countries.
Spirochrome (Stein am Rhein, Switzerland)
has developed higly innovative tools to stain F-actin and microtubules in living cells.
Dr. Ali El Bayâ (tebu-bio, Sales Manager – Proteins & Protein based Products & Services) says "Spirochrome’
s tools will perfectly complement tebu-bio's offer in the cytoskeleton field. Up to now only time consuming and indirect systems to stain the main cytoskeleton structures in living cells based on expression vectors were available on the market. SiR actin and SiR tubulin respresent non-toxic tools which are taken up by cells and allow direct staining of F actin and microtubules."
Dr. Stefan Pitsch (CEO of Spirochrome)
adds: "I am very optimistic that our cooperation with tebu-bio will broaden our access to the European research community and accelerate the propagation of our dyes".

tebu-bio is a pan-European company with 9 local offices throughout Europe, specialised in providing innovative reagents and laboratory services in Life Sciences. For more than ten years now, tebu-bio's own laboratories operating in France provide researchers with an ever-growing offer of standard or custom lab services.
tebu-bio is an active member of recognised professional networks and clusters (Medicen, Cosmetic Valley...), and received the PM’up award in the Health/Life Sciences sector, attributed to dynamic, high-potential companies by the “Région Ile-de-France”
(regional French government). tebu-bio regularly signs new European distribution agreements, proof of the company’s dynamism and professional drive. To find out more about Spirochrome’

s mission is to provide the scientific community with fluorescent probes for the imaging of biological structures in living cells without transfections, without phototoxicity, without tedious washing protocols and without unspecific background staining. Based on a new class of fluorophores introduced in two landmark papers published in Nature Chemistry and Nature Methods, Spirochrome has already introduced two products, SiR-actin and SiR-tubulin that permit imaging of the cytoskeleton in living cells with unprecedented resolution.
