Hopkinton Company Expands Industry-wide Licensing of Product
Caliper’s Optical Imaging Patent Suite Enhances Drug Discovery Efforts

August 13, 2007 -- Caliper Life Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: CALP) today announced that pharmaceutical giant Novartis has signed a multi-year license to Caliper’s patented non-invasive optical imaging methods.

     Non-invasive optical imaging, an increasingly critical technology for drug discovery and development, allows scientists to visualize, track and quantify biological processes at the molecular level in living animals with high throughput and relatively low cost.

     Caliper, the industry leader in small animal optical imaging solutions, provides commercial and academic customers with an impressive selection of in vivo offerings including imaging systems, reagents, applications, proprietary methods and services that improve drug discovery and development efforts. This method replaces surgery in tracking the effects of a proposed new drug on a laboratory animal, such as a mouse.
     “This multi-year agreement further validates the importance and relevance of Caliper’s optical imaging technology and intellectual property,” said Kevin Hrusovsky (File photo), chief executive officer, Caliper Life Sciences. “More than 70% of major pharmaceutical companies, and 60% of major biotech companies, now hold a license to the Caliper Optical Imaging Patent Suite, and smaller biotechs are following suit in increasing numbers.” Hrusovsky added, “Our recent notification of allowance of patent claims for conjugate fluorescence imaging methods from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has significantly increased the value of Caliper’s intellectual property estate and complements Caliper’s aggressive investment in conjugate probe development.”
     Caliper’s Xenogen family of IVIS® instrument systems, reagents, and proprietary methods deliver noninvasive in vivo imaging along with high sensitivity, ease of use and exceptional data quality. Caliper has placed over 450 units to date and recently launched the new Xenogen IVIS Spectrum™ system, the first system to provide state-of-the-art bioluminescence and fluorescence capability in a single unit.

Serious Crash on Route 95 in Salisbury

Driver NOT wearing seatbelt partially ejected - seriously injured


Yesterday, August 11, 2007, at approximately 7:24 p.m. troopers assigned to the State Police Barracks in Newbury responded to a one-vehicle crash on the ramp from Route 95 North to Route 286 (exit 60) in Salisbury that resulted in one serious injury.


Preliminary investigation by Trooper Joshua Ulrich indicates 19-year old Stephen M. Boy of Newburyport was operating a 2005 Honda Civic on Route 95 North and attempted to take the ramp to Route 286 when he lost control of the vehicle and traveled off the left shoulder of roadway and into the wood-line. Boy was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash and was partially ejected from the vehicle. He sustained serious injuries in the crash and was transported by medical helicopter to Beth Israel Hospital.


This crash remains under investigation with the assistance of the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section. The Salisbury Police Department, the Salisbury Fire Department and Mass Highway assisted troopers at the scene.

Three Strikes

Above, Hopkinton Police as well as Upton Police and Massachusetts State Police enter the property of a Lakeshore Drive home Saturday evening to disperse the party goers, who were not leaving willingly.


August 12, 2007 — The first complaints related to a party at a Lakeshore Drive home were made about parking concerns, even though Sandy Beach Parking lot was nearly filled with the vehicles of the guests. Other complaints were about the noise from the party in this neighborhood of lakeside homes closely situated to one another, and came from people wanting to put their kids to bed.

        The party quieted down, according to neighbors, for about 20 minutes after a visit by the police, but then started up again. On the second noise call, a man was arrested for Disorderly Conduct, and Assault and Battery, and a woman was placed into Protective Custody. At that time, both Hopkinton shifts stayed active — one was due to sign off — and Upton Police and Massachusetts State Police were called to help disperse the crowd of mostly young people. Almost all left without further incident.
