Westase, manufactured by Ozeki Corporation in Japan, is prepared from the liquid culture supernatant of Streptomyces rochei DB-34. The product has complex lytic activity in yeast cells mainly consisting of -1,6 glucanase and -1,3 glucanase activity.
The Microsart @media line of agar media dishes is for microbial limits testing according to the USP (Chapter <61>) and EP (Chapter 2.6.12). They are pre-filled with various agar media types, such as Tryptic Soy Agar or R2A Agar, sterile packaged and ready to use in combination with Microsart @filter units.
Cell culture vessels, extending from open to closed systems, are available in various formats from Corning to meet research needs and support bioproduction.
How do you alter the inside of a closed bag without opening it? It’s not a trick question, as researchers in Braunschweig, Germany, have achieved just that.
The OneWell Plate from Greiner Bio-One is an adherent cell culture treated plate. It is suitable for larger scale cultivation of cells in an SBS footprint format that is compatible with many automated systems.
Foetal Bovine Serum Gold from PAA is completely defined but is not a synthetic product, and contains no additives from other sera.
The RAFT system, from TAP Biosystems, comprises a RAFT plate, reagents, plate heater and protocol for the production of collagen-based 3D cell cultures in a simple, consistent and reproducible format.
Neogen has developed a fast method to accurately detect yeast and mould in food products. The test can detect one colony forming unit (CFU) of yeast or mould per vial in 48 h or less - conventional methods take up to five days.
Sigma-Aldrich has announced that its custom manufacturing and services business unit, SAFC, is launching the CHOZN Platform system, a CHO (Chinese hamster ovary) cell expression system that allows for faster, simpler selection and scale-up of high-producing clones for the production of recombinant protein drugs.
Lonza, with extensive experience in protein and nucleic acid electrophoresis, has an extensive range of products optimised for the unique requirements of most critical molecular biology techniques.
Lonza has available primary, diseased primary and stem cells. Research shows that non-transformed, non-immortalised cells isolated directly from tissue provide conditions that closely simulate a living model and yield more physiologically significant results.
Clonetics NHAC-kn-Normal Human Articular Chondrocytes are performance tested and positive for type ll collagen and sulfated proteoglycans after differentiation.
When culturing cells, not only is the constitution of the media significant, so is the solid, physical environment. By using different patterned surfaces, researchers have found that they can use the surface itself to instruct the cells, which could be really useful for growing cells on a larger scale and differentiating them under defined conditions.
Sigma Life Science has expanded its CompoZr Oncology Disease Model portfolio with the release of the first in its collection of breast cancer-specific knockout and knockin cell lines for drug discovery and research.
EZ-Accu Shot from Microbiologics is a quantitative microorganism preparation designed for performing growth promotion testing of culture media with ease.
