Abstract:
FEI (NASDAQ: FEIC), a scientific instruments company, marked the official launch of the new Living Lab for Structural Biology during an event on the NIH campus today.

FEI Launches ‘Living Lab’ for Structural Biology Research at NIH: Official launch of Living Lab scientific program takes place May 23 on the NIH campus.

Hillsboro, OR | Posted on May 23rd, 2012

"This event commences the FEI-NIH Living Lab joint scientific projects. FEI has installed the Titan Krios™ transmission electron microscope (TEM), the world's most powerful commercially-available electron microscope for structural biology, and our onsite team is assembled, including experts in sample preparation, cryo-electron microscopy applications, and Titan Krios operation. We are excited about this program and the great results we expect it will yield for the structural biology research community," stated FEI's President and CEO Dr. Don Kania.

The multi-faceted research program of the Living Lab at NIH includes participation from leading scientists, such as Dr. Sriram Subramaniam, director of the NIH component of the Living Lab, with expertise in cryo-electron microscopy and tomography; Drs. Adriaan Bax and G. Marius Clore, with expertise in NMR spectroscopy; Drs. Fred Dyda and Alex Wlodawer, with expertise in X-ray crystallography; and Drs. Suresh Ambudkar and Stuart Le Grice, with expertise in biochemistry. The capabilities of the Titan Krios for advanced cryo-electron microscopy are expected to effectively complement the work being done at NIH with NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography and help accelerate important medical discoveries relevant to global health challenges such as HIV/AIDS, diabetes and cancer.

FEI Safe Harbor Statement

This news release contains forward-looking statements that include statements regarding the performance capabilities and benefits of the Living Lab for Structural Biology. Factors that could affect these forward-looking statements include but are not limited to: failure of the anticipated Living Lab collaboration to function as expected across multiple technologies to accelerate research and development on certain important life sciences issues; failure to manufacture, ship and deliver the tools or software as expected; other specific product or technology failures that could undermine the aims and outcomes of the collaboration; failure of the collaborative team to work together effectively; failure to develop the applications and software required for the collaboration to achieve its research goals or a change in assigned research personnel. Please also refer to our Form 10-K, Forms 10-Q, Forms 8-K and other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for additional information on these factors and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements.
