News Jan 27, 2015
Prosolia, Inc. has announced that it had re-located operations to a new facility in Northwest Technology Center in Indianapolis, Indiana and that the company had received ISO 9001:2008 certification. The new facility includes office and production space, as well as, a state of the art mass spectrometry laboratory featuring Thermo Fisher Scientific and Waters mass spectrometers where it conducts research and customer demonstrations. The Quality Management System certification covers all of the company’s design, development, manufacturing and sales activities concerning equipment and associated services.
Certification to the ISO 9001:2008 standard requires an accredited third-party auditing organization to thoroughly review the Company’s policies, processes and procedures to ensure the company is committed to continuous improvement with a customer focus.
“Prosolia’s new office, production and laboratory facilities have allowed us to increase our capabilities in key areas that align with our current and future growth plans,” stated Justin M. Wiseman, Chairman, President & CEO of Prosolia. “Achieving certification to the ISO 9001:2008 quality standard is another important milestone for Prosolia and validates our unwavering commitment to developing and producing quality products and continuous process improvement.”
A bottleneck in life science research and chemical analysis is the time required for sample preparation. Sample preparation can be a tedious process that often involves multiple steps, delaying the time to a result, decreasing productivity and increasing the probability for error. Prosolia’s products eliminate this bottleneck by enabling direct, automated analysis of samples thereby reducing the requirement for extensive sample preparation and enabling faster time to results. These capabilities translate into lower laboratory operational costs and streamlined workflows.
The TMEM16 family of membrane proteins was hailed as representing the elusive calcium-activated chloride channels. However, the majority of the family members turned out to be scramblases, proteins that shuffle lipids between both sides of a lipid membrane, some also with non-selective ion conductance. In a new study, researchers have shown what the structures of these proteins reveal about their function.READ MORE
