PhoenixBio’s Response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

March 26th, 2020

Dear Valued Customers, Collaborators and Partners,


We are writing this letter to ensure you that the PhoenixBio Group continues to operate at full capacity and is committed to assisting our customers, collaborators and partners with their research needs during this extraordinary time.

We are monitoring, around the clock, the global outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are taking all the appropriate measures to mitigate the potential impact of the unprecedented circumstances on our services and the health of our employees.

PXB-mouse/PXB-cells Production and Research Service Operations

  • Our main PXB-mouse/PXB-cells production facility, study service site, laboratories, and the headquarters are located in Higashi Hiroshima City in Hiroshima, Japan, which is considered to be a low-risk zone as no COVID-19 positive patients have been reported as of March 26th, 2020.
  • Our CRO partners in Japan and North America are currently operational with no disruption in their study service capacity. PhoenixBio also has a supportive PXB-mouse/PXB-cells production facility in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
  • There is no disruption in the import of test materials & export study service samples. Shipping & receiving is currently fully operational at all of our locations.
  • Therefore, at this moment we do not have any significant concerns in the production of both PXB-mice and PXB-cells, as well as the operations of our research services.

Business and Alliance Operations

  • Although the main functions of PhoenixBio’s Research Planning & Business Development are located in New York City, NY, USA, where the virus is widely spreading, we implemented full remote work of all the staff on March 10th, 2020, prior to the start of mass outbreak of the virus in New York City.
  • PhoenixBio also maintains marketing functions in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with staff having remotely working since March 16th, 2020.
  • We have halted any in-person meetings at this moment and are proceeding with teleconferencing communications and consultation with our customers, collaborators and partners.
  • We are dedicated to providing full-scale business and alliance operations, while protecting the health of our customers, collaborators and partners as well as employees, under this current situation.

PhoenixBio continues to take all the necessary steps to prevent potential future infection of the COVID-19 virus to our employees and optimize the business operations under the current situation. We continue to operate at full capacity and are committed to assisting our customers, collaborators and partners with their research needs.

We thank you very much for your trust during this dynamic situation.

PhoenixBio Receives “Top 10% most cited” Recognition from PLOS ONE

PhoenixBio is pleased to announce that “Generation of Novel Chimeric Mice with Humanized Livers by Using Hemizygous cDNA-uPA/SCID Mice” is in the top 10% most cited PLOS ONE papers published in 2015.

The paper describes the humanized liver chimeric mice (PXB-mouseR) generated on PhoenixBio’s proprietary cDNA-uPA/SCID genetic background. The newly developed cDNA-uPA/SCID background allows significant improvements in the robustness and quality of the PXB-mouseR model, which has seen increased usage in a wide range of research fields, including Viral Hepatitis, Toxicity, Drug Metabolism & Pharmacokinetics, Metabolic Liver Disease, Oligonucleotide Therapeutics, and Gene Therapy.

The recognition by PLOS ONE demonstrates the utility of the PXB-mouseR across various biomedical fields and indicates the support for the model by both academic and industrial researchers. PhoenixBio is committed to contributing to the Life Sciences and will continue working with members in the Biomedical field to further their research goals.
