EMD Millipore Corporation Key Developments
EMD Millipore Introduces Magna Chirp™ RNA Interactome Kits for the Analysis of Chromatin-Associated RNAs
Apr 23 15
EMD Millipore introduced Magna ChIRP™ RNA Interactome Kits, which allow researchers to more easily identify, recover and analyze regions of chromatin that interact with chromatin-associated RNAs such as long non-coding RNA (lncRNA). The highly effective multiprobe-based capture strategy uses cross-linked chromatin to provide reliable detection and discovery of RNA-associated genomic DNA sequences, RNA sequences and proteins. The new kits use the ChIRP method (Chromatin Isolation by RNA Purification) to isolate chromatin complexes using RNA as the target, allowing researchers to pinpoint specific sites of genomic interaction for chromatin-associated RNAs. The kits simplify the ChIRP method, providing all necessary buffers, enzymes and reagents in one validated kit, as well as a negative control probe set and detailed protocol with capture probe design guidelines. In addition, first-time users can opt for the EZ-Magna ChIRP™ kit, which includes a positive control capture probe set and detection primers that make it easier to validate an experiment's success. The kits guide researchers through a process in which they cross-link and lyse cells, sonicate chromatin and hybridize biotinylated capture oligos, which bind to the complementary RNA sequence. Then, EMD Millipore's PureProteome™ Streptavidin magnetic beads are added, which are included in the kits to allow robust pull down of any chromatin binding to the target RNA. After the beads are washed, the DNA, RNA, and protein components can be isolated for further analysis. The protocol eliminates non-specific signals by utilizing split pools of capture probes (even/odd) to allow unambiguous identification of specific interactions.
EMD Millipore Announces Agreement with Precision Biologics, Inc. to Provide Upstream Process Development Services
Feb 2 15
EMD Millipore announced an agreement for providing upstream process development services for Precision Biologics Inc. to advance a preclinical monoclonal antibody. The antibody, NEO-201, binds to a tumor-specific antigen found in several forms of cancer, offering therapeutic potential across multiple cancer types, including colorectal, lung, ovarian, and pancreatic, an especially deadly cancer with limited treatment options. Under the agreement, EMD Millipore will provide process development through its Provantage® Services offering, which leverages the company's deep expertise in biopharmaceutical manufacturing to help customers design and develop custom processes that improve yield and productivity while reducing costs and accelerating time to market. The process development will occur at EMD Millipore's single-use GMP biodevelopment center in Martillac, France.
EMD Millipore Introduces New High-Performance Water Purification Systems with 24/7 Real-Time Monitoring and Remote Control
Jan 27 15
EMD Millipore announced the introduction of its AFS 40E /80E /120E and 150E water purification systems. These new systems have been developed to provide clinical laboratories with an economical and reliable water purification solution for daily water volumes of up to 3000 L. The AFS 40E /80E /120E and 150E systems rely on two powerful technologies to produce water quality meeting Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) Clinical Laboratory Reagent Water standards. State-of-the-art, proven Elix electrodeionization (EDI) technology ensures constant water quality with low and predictable running costs, while unique E.R.A. (Evolutive Reject Adjustment) technology takes feed water quality into account in order to automatically optimize water recovery and reduce water usage costs. The AFS 40E /80E /120E and 150E systems also offer users powerful 24/7 real-time monitoring and remote control over their water purification systems, as well as a new generation of enhanced services. These advanced monitoring features, along with an unprecedented level of service, also help maximize water purification system and analyzer uptime. The systems have been designed to provide quick and precise remote diagnostics and offer proactive service in order to avoid downtime. Service starts with feed water analysis by a certified EMD Millipore Field Service Engineer prior to system installation. Then, over time, users can ensure the best upkeep of their AFS E water purification system with a customized Watercare Pact service plan. With its large new touch screen, the system is designed for intuitive operation and for supporting the user with easy step-by-step instructions during routine maintenance. Interacting with the water purification system has never been easier. For increased flexibility, the system interface can also be accessed from another location, using a PC, tablet, or smart phone through a web browser. Mobile and customizable, the new range of systems is designed to make the best use of lab space. The quiet, compact systems are mounted on wheels, and can be moved around the lab or to another location depending on current lab requirements. AFS E system users can choose from a number of options and accessories to match their specific requirements, including an online Total Organic Carbon (TOC) monitor, degassing option, and sanitary sampling valve, among others.
