Fast Cell Harvesting Without Using a Centrifuge

Clarification and sterile filtration of antibodies

Fast Cell Harvesting Without Using a Centrifuge

11/08/2018 - Whether employed in basic research or the production of biopharmaceuticals, monoclonal antibodies are used in an exceptionally wide range of applications. Until now, harvesting of mammalian cell cultures used to be time-consuming, especially at laboratory scale, and usually involved a centrifugation step. A new diatomaceous earth-based filtration solution now improves and accelerates this process significantly. read...

Determination of Process Contaminants in Fats and Edible Oils

10/23/2018 - In the refining process for edible oils conditions must be carefully controlled to avoid the formation of toxic process contaminants, such as 2-MCPD, 3-MCPD, Glycidol and their fatty acid esters. An automated GC/MS-method now enables highly efficient determination of these compounds based on standard methods. read...

How Bionic Prostheses Use Peripheral Nerve Transfers to Function

Modern prostheses offer patients who have had a hand amputated much greater capability in everyday life than was possible with previous prosthetic reconstructive techniques. Redundant nerves from the amputated extremity can be surgically transferred to provide a much better connection between the patient’s body and the prosthesis. read...

Loss in Genetic Diversity of Eastern Gorillas Has Occurred in Just a Few Generations

The critically endangered Grauer’s gorilla has recently lost genetic diversity and has experienced an increase in harmful mutations. These conclusions were reached by an international team of researchers who sequenced eleven genomes from eastern gorilla specimens collected up to 100 years ago, and compared these with genomes from present-day individuals. read...

There Was No Pause in Global Warming

In a recent study, researchers shed light on the debate about a pause in global warming. James S. Risbey from CSIRO in Australia, lead author of one of the new studies said that their findings showed that there is little or no statistical evidence for a pause in global warming. Neither current nor historical data support it. read...
