General Intermediates Canada announced today that they have perfected work on the production of Ultra-Pure Nucleosides for use in the pharmaceutical and high-tech sensor industries.
“This is exciting stuff for us,” said Dr. Glenn Weagle, EVP of Technology for GIC. “We have confirmed our ability to produce nucleosides at greater than 99% purity. Our ultra-pure nucleosides have passed all bacterial and endotoxin standards for tissue culture.”
Nucleosides are commonly used as anti-viral and anti-cancer agents.
“The technology we use to produce these nucleosides is something we are looking to license to others in industry,” said GIC spokesman Allan Danroth. “We see this as a game-changer for both the tech and pharma industries and something that is unique to us. This is part of the work that GIC’s founder, Dr. Kleiner, did over the years that is just now getting out to the broader business community.”
