Fast Cell Harvesting Without Using a Centrifuge

Clarification and sterile filtration of antibodies

Fast Cell Harvesting Without Using a Centrifuge

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...

Helping the Body to Regenerate Joint Cartilage

A study released in Stem Cells moves scientists a step closer to finding how to help the body regenerate joint cartilage ravaged by disease. Their work reveals a new method to quickly and efficiently produce virtually unlimited numbers of chondrocytes, the cells that form cartilage, from human skin cells converted to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). This could be good news for patients suffering from arthritis. read...

Printing Pure Gold Microparts

The Netherlands: 3D Printing

Printing Pure Gold Microparts

Thanks to a laser technique that ejects ultra-tiny droplets of metal, it is now possible to print 3D metal structures, not only simple ‘piles’ of droplets, but complex overhanging structures as well: like a helix of some microns in size, made of pure gold. Using this technique, it will be possible to print new 3D micro components for electronics or photonics. read...
