• Author: brian wang

.... On Target Laboratories LLC is working to advance its revolutionary fluorescent imaging technology that could help surgeons pinpoint and remove more cancerous tissues than has ever been possible while preserving more healthy tissue for patients.

Headquartered at Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette, the company is developing a series of molecules, which, when administered intravenously, show promise in targeting many types of cancer cells, said Dr. Sumith Kularatne, On Target's vice president of research and development.

"In addition to our current U.S. patents, we have 11 more either filed or pending in the U.S.," Kularatne said. "We have another 33 patents pending worldwide. These patents are very important in helping us move our discoveries to the public where they can help people."
