EPPENDORF INDIA LAUNCHES NEW 5.0 ML TUBES WITH SCREW CAP
The introduction of this new screw cap container represents the latest significant innovation within the Eppendorf Tubes 5.0 mL system . This tube will complement the application spectrum of sample processing in the medium volume range : in addition to sample processing the 5.0 mL screw cap tube is ideally suited for secure transport , long term storage at temperatures as low as - 86 ° C as well as sample incubation at up to 100 ° C . In addition to a secure seal , the grooved and multi-surface side contours of the newly designed screw cap ensure a slip-free grip . To accommodate the demands of individual laboratory protocols , the Eppendorf Tubes 5.0 mL with screw cap are available in the certified purity grades " Eppendorf Quality ", " PCR clean " and " Sterile ".
BOSTON SCIENTIFIC CONDUCTS AWARENESS AND SCREENING CAMPS
Over 1000 people received free check-ups and counselling for digestive problems at patient screening camps that were held in nine cities ( Delhi , Kolkata , Bengaluru , Kollam , Hyderabad , Manipal , Kota , Ahmedabad and Indore ). In these camps , leading medical devices company Boston Scientific India offered free check-ups and counselling for people with any digestive tract problems .
Mr Prabal Chakraborty , Vice President and Managing Director , Boston Scientific India said , " Our mission " Advancing science for life " accurately reflects what we do for patients , physicians , and healthcare systems globally . Our intent behind this initiative was to encourage people to come forward and take charge of their digestive health , which is an often ignored and misunderstood area . For example , many individuals do not understand that a heartburn has nothing to do with the heart but is a form of indigestion .”
1000 patients attended the awareness and screening camps . The gastrointestinal problems investigated were : Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease ( GERD ) that results in burning chest pain because of stomach acid backing up into the esophagus ; Inflammatory Bowel Diseases ( IBD ) such as Crohn ' s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis that cause abdominal pain , diarrhea , rectal bleeding , weight loss and fever . At the screening camp doctors also shared tips on how to maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract and explained the need for procedures such as an endoscopy when it came to diagnosis .
FREE-FLOWING LAB DATA WITH A NEW LABX INSTRUMENTS
The proper METTLER TOLEDO instruments outfitted with LabX can connect roughly one-third of available laboratory instrument types to one management system . This ability to connect and archive data helps to eliminate administrative bottlenecks and the risk of transcription and recalculation error inherent in manual processing . It can also help ensure that all data produced by lab
equipment meets fundamental quality elements and criteria for scientific soundness to meet Good Manufacturing Practice ( GMP ) 21 CFR 211 .
Making it possible for analytical instruments to send data electronically , LabX automates the whole process of data generation , plausibility checks , and data transfer . This saves a significant amount of time , allows automatic results evaluation , and stores complete data sets — including meta data — for later reference and use , which can be particularly important for a quality or regulatory audit . Additionally , data transfer occurs through one point , which can further minimize effort expended on IT infrastructure .
AGILENT INTRODUCES NEW ATOMIC SPECTROSCOPY PLATFORM
Agilent Technologies has introduced a new addition to its lineup of inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometers . The Agilent 5110 ICP-OES will enable scientists to perform faster , more precise ICP- OES analysis than ever before in food , environmental and pharmaceutical testing as well as for mining and industrial applications . The new system builds on the company ' s breakthrough 5100 ICP-OES , which captures axial and radial views of plasma in a single measurement , enabling laboratories to use half as much argon in the process , saving both time and money . The new system is also a dualview system . Unlike ICP-OES systems from other vendors , the 5110 enables laboratories to increase throughput without compromising on precision . " The Agilent 5100 revolutionized the ICP-OES market , delivering significant value in terms of cost of ownership , performance , and ease of use ," said Mr Philip Binns , Agilent ' s vice president of spectroscopy products . " The new Agilent 5110 extends that revolution with more cutting-edge innovations ." The 5110 includes advances , A fully integrated Advanced Valve System with unique hardware and software technologies that enable ultra-high throughput with excellent precision and ease of use , IntelliQuant measurement for rapid sample screening and simple method development and New diagnostic capabilities that maximize instrument uptime and simplify troubleshooting .
THERMO FISHER INTRODUCES BIOPHARMA SPECIFIC NEW PRODUCTS
Thermo Fisher Scientific highlighted its bioprocessing production capabilities " built for biopharma ," at the International Pharmaceutical Expo ( INTERPHEX ) to support its expanding customer base of global biopharmaceutical manufacturers . New products at the show include innovations in single-use technologies , cell culture , protein purification and mass spectrometry .
Thermo Fisher has developed a comprehensive protein analytics platform to support microbial and process quality when accuracy and time-to-results are critical . The Applied Biosystems ProteinSEQ Protein Quantitation System , a breakthrough immuno-PCR platform for residual host-cell protein ( HCP ) and protein A quantitation , is designed for sensitive and robust protein quantitation with dynamic range , providing four orders of magnitude of greater confidence and quality of data throughout the production process . Glycosylation is one of the key critical quality attributes of monoclonal antibody-based biotherapeutics , affecting a biological drug ' s safety , efficacy , clearance and immunogenicity . The new Applied Biosystems GlycanAssure Glycan Analysis and Quantitation System is the first solution to combine highthroughput and high-data quality in an integrated platform . This helps save labor , time and analysis cost by using a simple sample preparation , a multi-capillary CE instrument and assay-specific software . To enhance productivity while improving protein quality , Thermo Fisher introduced Gibco GlycanTune , a feeding supplement engineered to provide precision and control in predictively shifting glycan profiles . Based on EfficientFeed technology , the feed also enables a multi-fold increase in titers and maximizes bioreactor utilization .
