Ameritox and Wake Forest University Form Research Partnership

Foundations of Human Genome Mapping Explored for Toxicology Testing

WINSTON SALEM, N.C., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wake Forest University and Ameritox, Ltd. today announced that Ameritox is supporting research at Wake Forest that could break new ground in developing technologies for medication monitoring and toxicology testing.

"Ameritox, the nation's leader in medication monitoring with a state-of-the-art laboratory in Greensboro, and Wake Forest University are just 25 miles apart, facilitating this cutting edge exploration," said Jay Zimmerman, chief operating officer of Ameritox.

Ameritox pioneered the field of pain medication monitoring, offering physicians tools that give them crucial information to help keep their patients and the communities they live in safe. Wake Forest University is among the nation's top universities, ranked 27th in the most recent U.S. News and World Report "Best Colleges" guide.

The Wake Forest-Ameritox partnership aims to build on the foundation of the science behind the mapping of the human genome to create a new standard in toxicology testing.

"Ameritox is excited to support work with Wake Forest University towards new discoveries for everyday use in commercial toxicology testing and analysis," Zimmerman said.  "The researchers and the chemistry department at Wake Forest are recognized nationally for expertise in the science and methods that are advancing the work done in laboratories like those run by Ameritox."

"Wake Forest University has been active in the development of new technologies and analytical methods that have the potential to improve toxicology testing," said Dr. Christa Colyer, chairperson of the Chemistry Department at Wake Forest University. "Being located close to Ameritox's Greensboro laboratories will make it that much easier to collaborate and exchange ideas to realize testing breakthroughs. I am confident that, working with Ameritox, Wake Forest's chemistry department can help to provide even greater overall laboratory performance and success to industry leaders like Ameritox."
