"Maven welcomes the support of the NIH to bring our platform to market," says Chief Technology Officer David Ralin. "LFIRETM's label-free, multiplexed capabilities and inherent simplicity will directly benefit our customers, delivering better results in less time and with lower costs." Target applications for the technology include - but are not limited to - immunoassays in the research and diagnostics markets, cell-based studies, high-throughput pharmaceuticals screening and the established label-free applications in biomolecular interaction analysis.

Chief Engineering Officer Jeffrey Chongsathien M.A. Cantab. adds, "We look forward to creating a robust, flexible and modular product portfolio of laboratory instrumentation and consumables, built on LFIRETM." The initial instrument will be a desktop microplate reader, with a set of 'alpha' evaluation units expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2011 and made available for use by key academic collaborators and strategic industry partners.

Company Founder and CEO William Rassman M.D. noted that the grant will 'jump-start' the commercializat
