Promega to Break Ground for New Processing and Manufacturing Facility
News Jul 07, 2014
Promega Corporation will break ground for a new processing and manufacturing facility near its primary campus in Fitchburg on July 10.
The new processing and manufacturing facility will initially work with processing, packaging, staging and shipping. In addition, the floor plan will allow for potential expansion of manufacturing and logistics operations to meet growing business needs in the future.
Most Promega products are temperature sensitive and require specialized temperature controlled facilities and equipment to hold the inventory stock for daily processing. Inventory will be pulled from designated locations, processed, packed and shipped out to customers worldwide. Raw materials and other inventory needed to process product will be received and housed at the facility, and used on-site or distributed to other Promega facilities as needed.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Nano-tech Diagnostic Can Indicate Cancer or Thrombotic Risk in One Drop of BloodNews

Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
