The 11th Annual Report and Survey
of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Capacity and Production
A global analysis of 238 biomanufacturers and 178 suppliers in 31 countries — the 514 page study is the industry's definitive, quantitative analysis and includes 11 years of biopharma trends and opportunities, including in-depth analysis of specific issues affecting the industry. This analysis covers the events shaping the past year, and evaluates what will shape the industry over the next five years. The study covers 12 critical areas, including: industry growth, downstream processing, single-use systems, outsourcing, capacity, quality management, and much more!

Products & Services
Compact UV-VIS Spectrophotometer
The new Eppendorf BioSpectrometer® extends their current detection product line by offering scanning capabilities allowing routine and complex methods such as measuring cytotoxicity assays, proteins, absorbance of fluorescent dyes, and more. The BioSpectrometer is a small, very compact spectrophotometer for measurements in the ultraviolet (UV) and UV-visible (VIS) range. Spectra can be recorded and individual wavelength measurements can be made in a spectral range of 200–830 nm.

The cuvette shaft of the BioSpectrometer kinetic is temperature controlled from +20°C to +42°C, meaning that enzyme and substrate kinetics can be measured directly in the device. Apart from standard cuvettes such as the Eppendorf UVette®, the BioSpectrometer can also accommodate µL volumes.

Instructional Video: ChIP Assay for Epigenetic Research
A new instructional video from Porvair Sciences explains exactly how to conduct a ChIP assay for epigenetic research. This live demonstration of the chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assay uses Porvair’s innovative solid-state ChIP kit – Chromatrap 96. Scientists will learn about the optimised protocol for preparing fresh chromatin from a dish of growing cells and how to verify the quality of the chromatin recovered.

In addition, the video shows each simple step in the Chromatrap procedure leading to measurable amounts of high-purity chromatin ready for PCR or sequencing. And because Chromatrap does not use beads to separate the chromatin, it is much faster, easier to use, and less prone to manual handling errors. The simple centrifugation and wash steps are seen being performed on the immunocaptured chromatin, which is held on the novel solid-state disc at the heart of each Chromatrap spin column.
