About Frontier Scientific Inc. (FSI)
This acquisition bolsters the late 2007 FSI acquisition of Echelon Biosciences Inc. (EBI), a Utah-based life science company. FSI’s investment in EBI opened the doors for expanded research with the aim to further the science of lipid cell signaling and critical metabolic enzymes, providing new and viable targets for the development of potential drugs and diagnostics for cancer, diabetes, inflammation, infections, and cardiovascular disease. Since 1997, EBI has strengthened its commitment to developing novel assays and reagents for lipid research and beyond. (www.echelon-inc.com)
Although a common management team will guide the portfolio companies of Frontier Scientific Services, Frontier Scientific, and Echelon Biosciences, the companies will be run independently yet will offer common products and services where appropriate to best serve its customers.
