ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 17, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- MIR Preclinical Services (MIR) has relocated to a state of the art facility at 800 Technology Drive in Ann Arbor, MI. This 20,000 sq. ft. facility was specially designed for the efficient and flexible application of imaging technologies to preclinical research problems. In addition to allowing a 5-fold expansion of MIR's research capacity, the new facility will provide an improved research environment. All imaging technologies will be housed directly within the HEPA-filtered vivarium, providing an unusually clean imaging environment and improved efficiency. The vivarium is contiguous to laboratory support space, equipped for chemistry, molecular biology, and cellular biology research activities. The building will also accommodate our newly formed in vitro services section. The move will also allow the company to become an entirely self-sufficient facility with the addition of a cage wash on a clean/dirty corridor system.
