News Mar 22, 2006
BioMicro® Systems has announced that it has signed two distribution agreements with GRI (Genetic Research Instrumentation) Ltd. and ScienceWerke to market the MAUI® hybridization product line to microarray researchers in Europe and Asia.
"BioMicro Systems is pleased to welcome GRI and ScienceWerke as partners in expanding the distribution and support network for the successful MAUI hybridization product line," said Katie McDaniel, MAUI Product Manager, BioMicro Systems.
"I believe that Europe and Asia has untapped potential for the MAUI microarray products. By working with these two organizations with expertise in cutting-edge research products, microarray scientists who utilize the MAUI systems will be supported well in their research."
GRI will market the MAUI product line in United Kingdom, Ireland and France, while ScienceWerke will market the MAUI product line in Singapore and Malaysia.
3D Printer Developed That Can Create Complex Biological TissuesNews
A UCLA bioengineer has developed a technique that uses a specially adapted 3D printer to build therapeutic biomaterials from multiple materials. The advance could be a step toward on-demand printing of complex artificial tissues for use in transplants and other surgeries.READ MORE
Microfluidic Device Captures Extracellular Vesicles Shed by Brain TumorsNews
Because needle biopsies of brain tumors are invasive and difficult, bioengineers supported by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) have developed micro-technologies that capture extracellular vesicles (EVs) released by the tumor.READ MORE
Making Drug Microparticles a Thousand Times FasterNews
Pharmaceuticals owe their effects mostly to their chemical composition, but the packaging of these drugs into specific physical formulations also need to be done to exact specifications. Engineers have now developed a microfluidic system where more than ten thousand devices run in parallel, all on a silicon-and-glass chip that can fit into a shirt pocket.READ MORE
