SILVER SPRING, Md. and SINGAPORE, Oct. 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvilex, Inc. (OTCQB:NVLX), an international biotechnology provider of cell and gene therapy solutions, announced today its wholly-owned subsidiary, Austrianova Singapore Pte Ltd (ASPL) will attend this year's AusBiotech event.

The annual AusBiotech event this year will be held from October 30 - November 2 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia. It has earned a reputation as the industry's premier biotechnology conference for the Asia Pacific region and has successfully expanded its relevance to the Australian and International Biotechnology industries by attracting more than 1100 participants from over 20 countries.

Dr Brian Salmons, CEO of ASPL said, "AusBiotech has grown in stature over the past several years. In prior years, we entered agreements with companies and found it to be one of the most valuable events for networking with new contacts. We anticipate meeting with companies with proprietary therapeutic cells, such as stem cells, that can leverage their technology with our Cell-in-a-Box® delivery system. We believe the new contacts we make will expand our customer base and increase the use of cell and gene therapy for making therapeutic products and treating diseases. We will also be promoting our Bac-in-a-Box® technology for the first time at this meeting and anticipate generating interest around its potential."

The Chief Executive of Nuvilex, Dr. Robert Ryan, stated "Attendance at this important biotech event in Australia and within easy reach of Southeast Asia will enable us to have increased exposure for our Cell-in-a-Box® and Bac-in-a-Box® live cell encapsulation technology and to showcase its immense versatility, thus providing our companies greater visibility at a time that such capabilities are becoming more important in the marketplace. It is our goal to bring more projects to fruition from this meeting as more companies today are looking to bring cellular-based therapy and product creation from the drawing board to reality and into regular use."
