Telesis Bio Releases BioXp® Select Kits to Enable DNA Amplification and Scale-up

New Releases Extend the BioXp® Select Product Line, Further Expanding the Utility, Speed, and Impact of the BioXp® Automated Synthetic Biology Workstation

SAN DIEGO, March 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Telesis Bio Inc. (NASDAQ: TBIO), a leader in automated multi-omic and synthetic biology solutions, today announced continued expansion of the BioXp® Select Kit product line, releasing two novel kits to enable DNA amplification and scale-up.

The BioXp® Select DNA Cloning and Amplification Kit and the BioXp® Select Plasmid Amplification Kit enable on-demand and automated synthesis and amplification of transfection-scale DNA beginning from the customers own DNA fragments or plasmid DNA, overnight and at the push of a button. This is expected to enable researchers to optimize their discovery workflows by reducing the time and steps for cloning and scale-up of DNA required for their testing and analysis.

“Common to many workflows is the need to scale DNA constructs to transfection-scale quantities. The BioXp® System enables one to automate cell-free DNA amplification and scale-up, reducing time and eliminating manual bacterial steps. We believe this can accelerate discovery, particularly in the areas of screening large number of lead candidates in antibody discovery, cellular immunotherapy, and protein engineering,” said Daniel Gibson, Ph.D., CTO and Co-founder of Telesis Bio.

“These releases represent our commitment to open our platform and provide scientists the flexibility to adapt the BioXp® System to their process and begin with their own materials. We believe that enabling scientists to begin the cloning, amplification, and mRNA synthesis process from their own linear DNA or plasmid DNA will empower them to advance their research and accelerate their discoveries. Throughout 2023, we plan to release additional BioXp® kits that enable cloning and DNA amplification, as well as to automate NGS Library Preparation and CRISPR gRNA synthesis,” said Todd R. Nelson, Ph.D., CEO and Founder of Telesis Bio.

Marco Tognon wins the Superyacht Chef Competition at the Yacht Club de Monaco

MONACO, March 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Marco Tognon won the Superyacht Chef Competition at the Yacht Club de Monaco. The event was held for the fourth year at the YCM in partnership with Bluewater and under the aegis of YCM’s La Belle Classe Academy training centre and the Monaco, Capital of Advanced Yachting approach. The culinary competition aimed to put the spotlight on gourmet cuisine at sea as being another facet of yachting professions. “It’s very important to us at the Yacht Club de Monaco to be a meeting platform for the industry and at the same time be able to combine the young generation with the owners. The network aspect is also very relevant in this kind of event,” said YCM secretary general, Bernard d’Alessandri. The award ceremony was held at the presence of the Prince Albert II of Monaco, president of the YCM.

Tognon, who is 29 years old and from Padua, has been cooking on yachts since 2017. He is currently the chef of Planet Nine, a 73-metre megayacht. He won the competition with a main course of lobster and a dessert of pineapple and mascarpone cream. “I am very happy to have joined this competition and I felt confident I could win. When I cook I am pragmatic and haven’t focused as much on what other people were doing as much as challenging myself,” he said.

The participants had to deal with a mystery basket and ‘last-minute’ ingredients chosen by the public. Chairing the 2023 edition was the two time three Michelin star chef Yannick Alléno, considered by many to be one of the world’s greatest chefs, with a strong focus on French cuisine and its heritage. He is also globally recognised for master-minding Modern Cuisine, a movement he initiated in 2013.  “You have to be very creative. When you are on board you have to cook breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea. It’s a huge work in a very small kitchen. I think it’s the most difficult position in the chef industry. In the competition we can see how they’re so creative. They don’t know the product and they only have 40 minutes to cook so they have to be very quick. We have to think about the waste. The food is so precious today so we have to think about it, of course,” added Alleno.

Among the professionals that came to judge the competition there were Chef Nicolas Petit (M/Y Latitude), winner in 2022, Chef Benoît Nicolas, ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’ 2015 in the gastronomic cuisine category, and Chef Cristina Bowerman, traditional Italian cuisine specialist influenced by her many experiences abroad. “I am glad to be here to be part of this jury. Many chef that I know have actually switched career from regular kitchens at the restaurant to board on yachts. You have to be very well organized and be very sensitive to every single ingredients in the kitchen. What I expected was not only a combination of flavors but also attention to sustainability. They’re sensitive to different way of cooking and saving plastic as well. I am certified plastic free and hope that everybody is gonna follow that trend and is going to be sensitive to this topic which is very important right now,” said Bowerman.

This year the nine superyacht chefs had to comply with anti-waste criteria requiring contestants to use every single ingredient in the mystery basket or receive a penalty, applied in accordance with an external scoring grid. British Chef Duncan Biggs who officiates on superyachts was in charge of this aspect of the competition.

Junshi Biosciences Announces 2022 Full Year Financial Results and Provides Corporate Updates

SHANGHAI, China, March 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Shanghai Junshi Biosciences Co., Ltd (“Junshi Biosciences”, HKEX: 1877; SSE: 688180), a leading innovation-driven biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the discovery, development, and commercialization of novel therapies, announced financial results for the 2022 full year and provided corporate updates.


  • Total revenue was approximately RMB 1,453 million during 2022. Sales revenue from TUOYI® (toripalimab) alone was approximately RMB 736 million, representing an increase of approximately 79% compared to 2021. With the increase in commercialization capability, as well as the approval and launch of two more significant indications for TUOYI® in 2022, the company’s sales in the domestic market are gradually entering a positive cycle.
  • Total research and development (“R&D”) expenses were approximately RMB 2,384 million in 2022, representing an increase of approximately 15% compared to 2021. The increase in R&D expenses was mainly due to (i) the continuous increase in R&D investment and product pipeline enrichment; (ii) the acceleration in the progress of current clinical projects and development of reserved R&D projects; and (iii) the reservation of the R&D team.
  • Net cash from financing activities was approximately RMB 4,643 million in 2022, which was mainly attributable to the successful issuance of the company’s new A shares on the STAR Market of the Shanghai Stock Exchange on December 2nd, 2022. Net cash inflow from the issuance was RMB 3,748 million and new bank borrowings contributed a net cash inflow of RMB 840 million. These net cash inflows from financing activities fully covered the cash outflows from operating and investing activities, leading to the increase of RMB 2,492 million in bank balances and cash.
  • Loss attributable to the owners of the company was RMB 2,386 million in 2022, representing an increase of RMB 1,667 million compared to 2021. This increase was mainly due to out-licensing, which resulted in the decline of revenue.


During 2022, we focused on addressing “unmet clinical needs” and have made original, innovative and breakthrough progress in the discovery, R&D, production and commercialization of innovative therapies and drugs. Our efforts have filled various gaps domestically and have positioned us as global leaders in some fields. The following are some of our greatest achievements and milestones in 2022:

  • Advancements in pipeline: The company’s innovative R&D field has expanded from monoclonal antibodies to the development of various drug modalities, including small molecules drugs, polypeptide drugs, antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), bi-specific or multi-specific antibodies and nucleic acid drugs, as well as the exploration of next-generation innovative therapies for cancer and autoimmune diseases. Product pipelines cover five major therapeutic areas, including malignant tumors, autoimmune diseases, chronic metabolic diseases, neurologic diseases and infectious diseases. In 2022, a total of four drugs (TUOYI®, JUNMAIKANG®, MINDEWEI (民得維®) and etesevimab) were commercialized in China or abroad, around 30 assets are undergoing clinical trials with ongericimab, bevacizumab and PARP inhibitor under Phase III clinical trials, and over 20 drug candidates are under pre-clinical drug development.

“Constellation + Tastemade Studios” launches to move the wine & spirits category forward through a modern, video-led marketing approach to engage consumers globally.

“Street Somm,” an original series following a sommelier’s travels and meals across the U.S., will premiere on the Tastemade streaming channel this year.

SAN FRANCISCO, March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE: STZ), a leading beverage alcohol company, announced today that it has formed a multi-year, multi-million dollar partnership with Tastemade, a modern media company, to launch a first-of-its-kind content studio that will create and distribute social and streaming content to drive consumer engagement globally for Constellation Brands Wine & Spirits.

“Constellation + Tastemade Studios” will drive elevated storytelling to introduce a new, highly-engaged generation of LDA consumers to the wine and spirits category, through Constellation’s leading brands, including Robert Mondavi Winery, The Prisoner Wine Company, High West Whiskey, Kim Crawford, SIMI, Schrader Cellars, Double Diamond, To Kalon Vineyard Company, Ruffino Estates, Lingua Franca and others. The partnership will create a new slate of original and powerful series, inspired by these winning brands, that break through, inspire, and advance global wine and spirits culture with innovative storytelling formats spanning native social video and streaming television, as well as brand experiences. Key components of the deal include:

  • Originals for streamers: the development and sale of original series to streamers.
  • Originals for the Tastemade streaming channel: the development and distribution of longform shows, including Street Somm, on Tastemade’s streaming channel.
  • Talent, community, content management, and innovation: the development of a tailored approach to curating key brand storytellers and building an engaged community through content and experiences; the architecture of experiential activations, creator and talent partnerships, and platform innovation.
  • Native social video content: branded original social video content to drive awareness and increase sales.

The first streaming show resulting from the partnership will be, Street Somm, an on-the-go travel series that sends a curious, outgoing sommelier traveling around the country with one goal in mind: to explore mouthwatering eats, learn the story behind them, and find unexpected wine pairings around every corner. In each episode, the “Street Somm” journeys to a new U.S. city where they will meet an in-the-know local to eat and pair in creative and surprising ways – putting a fun twist on the “right” way to pair wine and challenging any preconceived notions about wine and food.
