Golden, Colorado—November 12, 2013—Vitro Diagnostics, Inc. (OTCQB: VODG), dba Vitro Biopharma, announced an interview of its CEO by Juan Costello of the Wall Street Analyst (http://thewallstreetanalyzer.com/vitro-diagnostics-otcbbvodg-ceo-interview). In the interview, our CEO elaborated on the effect of its planned merger with Neuromics, Inc. in greater detail and provided an overview of the near-term plans to accelerate growth. Completion of the merger would immediately expand revenues from research products by several-fold. While Vitro Biopharma’s research products are primarily focused on adult stem cells and related products, the addition of Neuromics product lines expands our offerings to include antibodies, an expansive number of products for proteomics, apoptosis (cell death) assays, molecular biology reagents, together with numerous cell-based assay products complementary to Vitro’s stem cell-based products.
In addition, Vitro Biopharma is developing a pipeline of products for use in drug discovery, development and toxicology based on stem cell-derived cell-based assays that replicate in-vivo cellular systems for high throughput analysis of key parameters. From the interview, Dr. Jim Musick, Vitro Biopharma’s CEO said, “Our uniqueness is that the cellular systems that we’re analyzing truly reflect what’s happening in the body because we use not only the drug target cells themselves and the media that the cells live in, but also proper extracellular matrices, the materials outside of the cells. All components are provided in high throughput configuration including an automated live cell assay system together with advanced digital read-out capabilities. We’ve recently purchased a new instrument that will allow us to generate the data needed to pursue this area.”
Additional growth prospects for revenue growth are presented in detail within the Wall Street Analyst interview (http://thewallstreetanalyzer.com/vitro-diagnostics-otcbbvodg-ceo-interview).
