News Apr 27, 2010
Genetix announces that Vanderbilt Monoclonal Antibody Core (VMAC), Vanderbilt University, has become the 100th facility to purchase its ClonePix™ FL system.
Used for screening and selection of secretory cell lines, the ClonePix FL system can significantly reduce the time and costs associated with recombinant protein generation. VMAC will use the system to support its monoclonal and polyclonal antibody generation, purification, and characterization technical advice and services, and also its recombinant protein production and purification services.
Dr. Robert Carnahan, Director, VMAC, said: “Our aim at VMAC is to provide a centre of expertise in all areas of monoclonal antibody production and recombinant protein technology. It is vital that we are able to access state of the art technology such as the ClonePix FL system, in order to provide the best service for investigators both within Vanderbilt and beyond.”
Charles de Rohan, Head of the Genetix Business Unit within Leica Microsystems, commented: “We’re delighted that the benefits of ClonePix FL systems are recognized by so many laboratories. The VMAC is a highly prestigious institute and its decision to invest in this technology is testament to the value it brings to antibody and recombinant protein production.”
Two proteins that activate the fastest molecule in our nerve cells have been identified by researchers at University of Warwick. This mechanism is responsible for transport through our nervous system. This finding could lead to a new therapeutic treatments for people with hereditary spastic paraplegia and other neurological disorders.READ MORE
