					 Oxford Expression Technologies Launch Revolutionary Baculovirus
                 Extraction and Quantification Kit
Oxford Expression Technologies (OET), the award-winning specialist provider of baculovirus-
  based protein expression solutions, launches baculoQUANT ALL-IN-ONE™, a baculovirus
                                 extraction and titration kit.

Oxford, UK, March 26, 2012 - Oxford Expression Technologies (OET), the award-winning specialist
provider of baculovirus-based protein expression solutions, launches baculoQUANT ALL-IN-
ONE™, a baculovirus extraction and titration kit. The new kit has been developed together with
PCR reagent and equipment specialists Agilent Technologies as a continued theme to provide ease
of use to scientists. baculoQUANT ALL-IN-ONE contains all the necessary components for
baculovirus extraction and quantification and provides significant advantages over traditional
methods.

The new kit represents a significant step forward for baculovirus quantification as it bypasses the
need for DNA extraction spin columns, plaque assays, ELISA and immuno assays that current
methods rely on. It also boasts a host of new features including viral DNA extraction and titration
in less than three hours, less than 1 hour hands on time, increased accuracy and one step DNA
extraction.

Passing comment, Richard Broadhead, Sales and Marketing Manager at Oxford Expression
Technologies said, “We are pleased to announce the launch of the baculoQUANT ALL-IN-ONE™
baculovirus quantification kit, it represents our continued commitment to provide innovation and
ease of use to our customers and scientists involved in recombinant protein expression,” he
continued, “We have increased the speed and simplified a key part of any baculovirus workflow,
the quantification of virus, we are delighted that our customers can benefit from these
improvements.”

Agilent Technologies’ Paige Weis, Manager Custom and Bulk Services commented, “ We are very
pleased to collaborate with Oxford Expression Technologies in the development of the new
baculoQUANT ALL-IN-ONE™kit, Agilent Technologies is a global leader in PCR technologies and we
are delighted to contribute our high performance and easy to use PCR components to this
exciting new kit.”
