Life sciences company Eppendorf is presenting its research prize for the 26th time. The independent Award Jury chaired by Prof. Reinhard Jahn announced Dr. Tanmay Bharat, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom as the winner of the Eppendorf Award for European Investigators 2021.
Antibiotikaresistente Bakterien bedrohen weltweit jedes Jahr das Leben hunderttausender Menschen. Besonders gefährlich sind so genannte Biofilme. Ihnen hat ein junger Forscher aus Großbritannien den Kampf angesagt und ist für seine Forschung jetzt mit dem Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators 2021 ausgezeichnet worden.
Nearly all of us have in one way or another come into contact with PCR tests in recent months. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) only requires a small DNA sample of the virus to detect an infection with Covid-19. In recent weeks and months, companies have successfully launched ever faster test kits — some of which we are presenting in this article.
Four additional variants have been added to Eppendorf’s line-up of Move It adjustable tip spacing pipettes. With adjustable cone distances, these pipettes allow scientists to accelerate and simplify their workflow when pipetting between different vessel formats such as from tubes to plates.
By re-designing the Cryo Cube F570 (all voltages), Eppendorf now offers this standard-sized ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezer completely equipped with future-proof green cooling liquids and green insulation foam as well as better performance.
A new bioprocess control unit for single-use bioreactors has been developed for pilot and production scales. In this way, Eppendorf wants to enable the seamless scaling of processes from R&D laboratories to pilot and production facilities.
