NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ, USA, February 1, 2011 -- Nanion welcomes Dr. Joerg Oestreich to the team. With Dr. Oestreich’s strong background in electrophysiology screening assays, Nanion continues to offer premium support for the US-market.
Dr. Joerg Oestreich, previously Study Director at Chantest Corporation, Cleveland, OH, has a solid background in electrophysiology and high throughput drug discovery. Dr. Oestreich received his Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Austin, and continued with post-doc studies at Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA within the field of electrophysiology. Having experience with a multitude of ion channels targets and cellular assays, Dr. Oestreich is a great match for the Nanion team.
Rodolfo Haedo, General Manager of Nanion Inc., says: “With the rapidly growing number of Patchliner and Port-a-Patch customers, Dr. Oestreich is a needed and welcome contribution to the US-team. I am convinced that his valuable expertise and professional experience will come very handy for covering the ever-increasing demand of product demonstrations, workshops and assay support.”
Joerg Oestreich says: “I find Nanion’s vision and product portfolio very convincing; the Port-a-Patch and Patchliner are excellent and important research platforms that are not only suited for industrial ion channel research, but also for academia due to their unmatched flexibility and data quality. They are greatly complemented by the SyncroPatch 96, a screening platform covering the industry’s need for higher throughput and quality in safety testing and drug screening efforts. In addition, Nanion has a very innovative, dynamic, and dedicated team that if required will go through tremendous efforts to support their customers, and on a personal level is also very pleasant to work with."
Niels Fertig, CEO continues: “I am happy to welcome Dr. Joerg Oestreich to the team! Despite of the global economic crisis, we see a clearly positive trend in the US sales of our robotic platforms. 2011 will be a very exciting year, especially on the US- and Asian markets with the upcoming installations of the SyncroPatch 96.”
