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...

180 Million Year Old Ichthyosaur Fossil Reveals Whale-Like Blubber Under the Skin

Scientists of Lund University, Sweden, led the international collaboration that resulted in the most comprehensive and in-depth examination of a soft-tissue fossil ever undertaken. Among other things, the study reveals that the soft parts have fossilised so quickly that both the original cells and their internal contents are preserved. read...

Inactivating Genes Can Boost Genetic Diversity of Crops

Researchers from Cirad and Inra recently showed that inactivating a gene leads to a three-fold increase in recombination in crops such as rice, pea and tomato. The gene RECQ4 inhibits the exchange of genetic material via recombination (crossover) during the sexual reproduction process in crops. This discover, could speed up plant breeding and development of varieties better suited to specific environmental conditions such as disease resistance, adaptation to climate change. read...
