Rapid Baculovirus Quantification with the InDevR Virus Counter®

The ViroCyt 2100® Virus Counter accurately quantifies baculovirus concentration during recombinant protein production and virus stock preparation. Unlike conventional plaque titer assays that can take up to 10 days to complete, the Virus Counter provides accurate and quantitative results in less than 10 minutes.
✔ Rapid virus quantification results
✔ Cost-effective
✔ Easy-to-use, intuitive software
✔ Streamlines R&D efforts
✔ High impact for Protein Expression, Viral Vectors, Virus Growth and more...

InDevR and Kempbio, Inc. recently conducted an informative webinar, “Scalable Transient Mammalian Expression System Based on Bacmam Technology”. Discussions included a BacMam/PEI comparison, BacMam transfection and amplification, expression data, and how the use of the Virus Counter significantly reduced the time to result. View the recorded webinar and watch for our article in the Summer 2012 BioProcessing Journal now in production.

FlexMoSys™ Featured at Next Week’s ACHEMA Exhibition
Sartorius Stedim Biotech’s single-use and reusable product portfolio and G-Con Manufacturing’s novel, modular, mobile cleanroom “pods” have been forged into an unparalleled set of cost-effective, “plug and play” tools for next-generation biomanufacturing.

FlexMoSys™ pods provide GMP-compliant cleanroom space that is quick to set-up, more flexible, and significantly less expensive than a conventional, large purpose-built facility. The cleanroom pods are designed to be easily integrated, individually or in clusters, with existing facilities. Each pod is capable of housing multi-product, multi-technology concepts, and is fully scalable from pilot-scale through commercial-scale operations.

To learn more, please visit the Sartorius exhibit at ACHEMA 2012, June 18-22 in Frankfurt, Germany.
