Wheaton and Irvine Scientific have collaborated to introduce a high yield, small-scale solution for bioproduction. The solution consists of a Wheaton CELLine bioreactor flask paired with Irvine Scientific’s BalanCD CHO Growth A animal component-free, chemically-defined medium.
Prior’s newest stage technology, the HLD117 Linear Motor Stages, offers repeatability of 0.15μm, scanning speeds of up to 300mm per second and low velocity ripple at speeds down to one micron per second. The low profile, flat top design and ultra quiet operation make the stage especially well suited for high end OEM and end user applications
The C5011 hollow fiber bioreactor cartridge from FiberCell Systems is optimized for maximum antibody production when used with the new FiberCell Systems Duet pump. This module can produce from 10 mgs to 100 mgs of antibody from a hybridoma cell line every two days, in a total volume of 20 mls, for as long as 6 months of continuous production or more.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB) offers UniVessel SU, the second generation of its single-use bioreactor. This single-use stirred tank bioreactor can be operated in a choice of working volumes ranging from 0.6L to 2L, and is suitable for the cultivation of mammalian cells, including stem cells, insect, and plant cells.
Leica Microsystems offers cameras that are designed for routine brightfield or fluorescence applications. The cameras are equipped with sensors dedicated to the respective applications that allow live images of up to 30 frames per second and a USB 3.0 interface for fast data transfer.
Hamilton Robotics offers the Decapping Microlab STAR Workstation, a fully automated tube tracking, decapping and recapping workstation that features up to eight decapping modules for safe and secure sample preparation. The manual process of opening and closing capped tubes slows research with labor-intensive steps and leaves room for errors.
Andor Technology offers back-illuminated, deep-depletion CCD technology on the iDus platform. This new technology offers a combination of sensitivity in the near-infrared (NIR) and resolution, opening new possibilities for faster, higher resolution Raman, photoluminescence, plasmonics, or broadband absorption without the need for Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) use.
Waters expanded its family of CORTECS Columns with the introduction of a new line of 2.7 micron silica-based, solid-core particle columns. Designed for analytical scientists who need to maximize performance on their existing LC systems, CORTECS 2.7 micron Columns run at lower pressures while delivering high efficiencies.
Princeton offers the NIRvana 640ST InGaAs imaging camera. The company’s scientific-grade NIRvana camera series utilize a deep-cooled indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) focal plane array for research. The NIRvana 640ST has been designed for scientific imaging applications in the shortwave infrared (SWIR).
GE Healthcare offers Xuri IL-2 growth factor for the reliable activation and expansion of T-lymphocytes. Xuri IL-2 is a dedicated cell therapy ancillary product for the ex vivo cultivation of T-lymphocytes. Xuri IL-2’s defined level of biological activity removes the need for revalidation of each lot and strongly improves reproducibility, thereby minimizing process development time and improving scale out capacity.
Artemis CCD announces an upgrade in performance and enhanced lens compatibility for the VS range of cameras. The VS design is aimed at Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of integrated imaging systems as well as low light microscopy users.
QImaging offers the optiMOS Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera for fluorescence microscopy. An alternative to traditional CCD cameras, optiMOS captures fast cellular dynamic events across a larger field of view without compromising sensitivity.
Oxford Gene Technology (OGT) released a new microarray designed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of cancer research. The CytoSure Cancer +SNP array (4x180k) combines long oligo array comparative genomic hybridisation (aCGH) probes with fully validated single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) content.
Harvard Apparatus released of the Pump 11 Elite Glucose Clamp Infusion System for academic euglycemic or hyperglycemic glucose clamp studies. The Pump 11 Elite Glucose Clamp Infusion System is designed as a time saving syringe pump enhancement that offers set-up using a touch screen display. The built-in software capabilities reduce the potential for error by providing accurate fluid delivery.
