Upcoming Event: Virus Quantification Symposium
Thursday, March 12 from 8am–2pm
Marriott Washingtonian Center, Gaithersburg, Maryland
For anyone who works with viruses—as vaccines, as a tool to express proteins, or for virotherapy—quantification is often a rate-limiting step. This one day event focuses on understanding these bottlenecks as well as introducing new methods for accelerating the pace of viral research, development, and production. Featured presentations include:

Christopher Kemp (Kempbio) – “Optimizing Virus-Based Expression Systems”
Ewan Plant (CBER/FDA) – “Comparing Virus Counts from Egg and Cell Culture”
Katherine Hussmann (NIH/NIAID) – “Analyzing Virulence Determinants of West Nile Virus at the Blood Brain Barrier: It’s What’s on the Outside That Counts”
Michael Olszowy (ViroCyt) – “Virus Quantification: Challenges and Opportunities”
Daniel Vellom (Sanofi Pasteur) – “Accelerating Viral Vaccine Development with the ViroCyt Virus Counter”

There is no charge to attend, but early registration is strongly encouraged as space is limited.

Small and Simple Peristaltic Pump
Watson-Marlow Pumps Group has launched its 120 cased peristaltic pump range focused on size, performance, and ease of use. The 120 pumps are perfectly suited to single-use systems where no contamination can be accepted. The 120 is also effective where validation demands accurate flow rate, easy monitoring of parameters, and process control. With an exceptional 2,000:1 speed range (speed accuracy ± 1%) and a selection of USP Class VI tubes, the 120 delivers flexibility and purity.

The new 114 pump head provides error-free tube changing in only seconds. Watson-Marlow's hig-tolerance tubing, the only consumable, is designed specifically to give optimum performance in its pumps.

The ultra-quiet 120 cased pump range is available with three different models for fixed speed, manual or remote auto control, and five single- and multi-channel pump heads. All 120 pumps are IP31 rated and carry a three-year warranty. For more information, please visit
