Sony DADC to Enter Into a Manufacturing Agreement with Trinean
News Apr 04, 2014
Trinean has announced that it has entered into a manufacturing and supply agreement with Sony DADC for the production of microfluidic disposables fit for storage and micro-cuvette analysis of droplet-sized biological samples.
Sony DADC BioSciences, the leading OEM supplier of smart polymer-based consumables, is using their ISO 13485 facility in Salzburg, Austria to manufacture to Trinean’s specifications.
“We are very pleased to start working with Sony DADC,” comments Philippe Stas, CEO of Trinean. "The Sony DADC team has an in-depth understanding of microfluidic disposable production and optimization. High optical quality and reproducibility in the production process are crucial for an accurate analysis of DNA, RNA and protein samples”.
Trinean’s spectrophotometers redefine manual UV/VIS bio-sample quantification into a convenient, high speed solution. The DropSense96™ reader is geared to high throughput and integrated sample QC analysis. The Xpose™ ‘Touch & Go’ approach avoids time-consuming sample loading and cleaning steps thereby minimizing the hands-on time on the reader.
Both platforms include proprietary Spectral Content Profiling software for dye-free quantitation of DNA, RNA or protein yields combined with the detection of contaminating levels of residuals for content QC.
“We are delighted to have gained the trust of the Trinean team. Based on our extensive experience in translating polymer science into robust manufacturing processes, we look forward to supplying the microfluidic disposables to Trinean as they grow their global business footprint,” said Dr. Chris Mauracher, Senior Vice President of the BioSciences division of Sony DADC.
Spintronic Barrier BrokenNews
Spintronic developments, that enhance solid-state devices like hard drives and cell phone components, are increasingly running up against a barrier known as the Slater-Pauling limit, the maximum for how tightly a material can pack its magnetization. Now, a new thin film is poised to break through this decades-old benchmark.READ MORE
Novel Green Chemistry Method Improves Pharmaceutical Manufacturing EfficiencyNews
About 70 percent of pharmaceuticals are manufactured using palladium-driven catalytic processes that are either fast or efficient - but not both. Researchers have now developed a green chemistry method that combines aspects of both processes to improve efficiency at a minimal cost of processing time.READ MORE
New Drug to Treat Herpes Simplex Virus Infection?News
Researchers have now identified a small drug molecule that can clear the HSV-1 infection in the cells of the cornea -- the clear outer layer of the eyeball -- and works completely differently than the currently-available drugs, making it a promising potential option for patients who have developed resistance.READ MORE
