Cultivation of a PER.C6 EpCAM Cell line in CDM4PERMab Powder Medium Reconstituted with Arium pro UF WaterJanuary 23, 2013 2:33 pm | by Anil Kumar Rathod, Sheokant Diwakar & Dr. Ashok Mundrigi, Sartorius Stedim India; Dr. Elmar Herbig, Sartorius | Articles | Comments
Water is a major component of all cell culture media and is therefore needed to prepare media, buffers, and additives, and as well as to serve many ancillary functions, such as heating, cooling, cleaning and rinsing. Thus, water quality plays an important role in the outcome of cell culture experiments.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB) launched the Sartoguard NF prefilter series, completing its range of Sartoguard prefilters. These new prefilters feature a combination of high performance polyethersulfone (PES) membranes and nanofleece technology. This is the first time that PES nanofleece material is being used for liquid prefiltration applications in biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
The Porvair Filtration Group Biofil Plus range of microbial-rated cartridges have been developed and manufactured for the filtration of complex biological liquids found in biopharmaceutical, biotechnologym and other critical applications.
Porex launched a line of glass fiber designed to deliver precision, accuracy and reliability when used in filtration, separation, extraction, and purification procedures.
Thermo Fisher Scientific introduced new products for the purification of GST- and His-tagged fusion proteins. These products include Thermo Scientific Pierce Glutathione Spin Plates and the Thermo Scientific HisPur Ni-NTA Spin Plates.
The new ElectroPrep System from Harvard Apparatus is a patented sample prep technology based on electro-dialysis. The ElectroPrep can be used for electro-dialysis, electro-elution, electro-filtration, electro-fractionation or electro-concentration for running a sample simultaneously into multiple molecular weight cut off (MWCO) fractions in as little as three minutes.
Meissner’s new inline UltraCap H.D. high capacity capsule filter offers seamless integration into SUS for pharmaceutical and biomanufacturing applications. The robust inline UltraCap H.D. withstands rough handling conditions and demanding environments, while providing high flow rates and high throughput.
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments introduces the TOC-L Series of analyzers for total organic carbon testing in aqueous samples. With a wide sample range from 4 ?g/L to 30,000 mg/L, the TOC-L is suitable for analyzing ultra-pure to highly contaminated samples of wastewater, brine water, seawater, drinking water and pharmaceutical water.
Phenomenex introduces the Phenex-GF/NY dual-membrane syringe filter for viscous, particulate-laden samples. The new filter incorporates a glass layer, through which the sample passes first for elimination of heavy particulates, increasing the effectiveness of the second, nylon fiber membrane.
Spectrum Laboratories introduces modified polyethersulfone (mPES) hollow fiber filters for tangential flow filtration. Modified polyethersulfone is an advanced hydrophilic membrane chemistry that provides higher flux rates for faster processing, selectivity for separation applications, and low protein binding for higher production yields.
Spectronics’ Spectroline XX-15NF ultaviolet lamp is a long-wave/short-wave unit can be used as a stand-alone lamp where wide-area, high-intensity UV coverage is necessary or as a component of the CL-150 UV viewing and photo documentation system.
The Sartocheck product family from Sartorius Stedim Biotech is designed for automatic integrity testing of membrane filter systems. The newly developed Sartocheck 4 plus features an optional scanner that enables important information to be read into the test unit.
Spectrum Laboratories introduces the new KrosFlo Research IIi Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF) System. This updated system—ideal for R&D scale microfiltration and ultrafiltration processing—comes with the Digital Pressure Monitor integrated into the peristaltic pump.
Meissner’s Steridyne 50 (PVDF) and Ultradyne 50 (PTFE) are multipurpose 50 mm filters for small volume venting, gas, and solvent filtration. The filters are offered with stepped hose barb inlet/outlet connections. Designed and supported for bi-directional flow, the 0.2 ?m-rated filters serve as a hydrophobic vent filter.
