Biomedical Technologies Enhances Lipoprotein Manufacturing Capabilities
News Jun 01, 2015
Preparative ultracentrifuges are used in biology for gradient separations, where the molecules in a sample are separated using a substance of graduated density, such as salt gradients for proteins. The process is often gradual and involves many sequential steps to obtain the desired gradient. BT is now able to double its lipoprotein manufacturing capability and significantly reduce lead times for both standard and custom products.
The lipoprotein manufacturing process is now 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to meet customers' demands.
Kristy McGuire, Laboratory Manager, commented: 'We are committed to our customers and believe that investing in the second ultracentrifuge will enhance our manufacturing capabilities and reduce the lead time on custom products, ultimately resulting in our customers receiving a first class service that exceeds their expectations.
Researchers have developed an artificial enzymatic pathway for synthesizing isoprenoids, or terpenes, in E. coli. This shorter, more efficient, cost-effective and customizable pathway transforms E. coli into a factory that can produce terpenes for use in everything from cancer drugs to biofuels.READ MORE
