The 7th Monolith Summer School and Symposium
The 7th Monolith Summer School and Symposium
27th May - 1st June 2016, Slovenia

The Monolith Summer School and Symposium (MSS) is an event dedicated to innovations in the field of Monolith technology and production of biomolecules. It is a must-attend event for all scientists who are involved in biopharmaceutical production processes of biomolecules and are focusing either on Purification Process Development or Process Analytical Technology (PAT).

The 7th Monolith Summer School and Symposium (MSS) will be held in May and June 2016 in beautiful Portorož, a coastal town in Slovenia. By attending, you will get an excellent opportunity to expand your scientific knowledge and get an insight into recent discoveries in the area of large biomolecules. Numerous meetings and social events will increase your chance to interact with top scientists and leading chromatography experts from all around the world.

Counting Molecules with an Ordinary Cell Phone
To address the need for a robust readout system for quantitative diagnostics, researchers at California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have invented a new visual readout method that uses analytical chemistries and image processing to provide unambiguous quantification of single nucleic-acid molecules that can be performed by any cell-phone camera. The method utilizes a microfluidic technology called SlipChip, which serves as a portable lab-on-a-chip and can be used to quantify concentrations of single molecules. Each SlipChip encodes a complex program for isolating single molecules (such as DNA or RNA) along with chemical reactants in nanoliter-sized wells. To read the result, a user simply takes a picture of the entire SlipChip using any camera phone. Then the photo is processed using a ratiometric approach that transforms the colors detected by the camera's sensor into an unambiguous readout of positives and negatives. Caltech
The visual readout method is described and validated using RNA from the hepatitis C virus—HCV RNA—in a paper entitled Reading Out Single-Molecule Digital RNA and DNA Isothermal Amplification in Nanoliter Volumes with Unmodified Camera Phones. For more information, please contact
Continuous Chromatography System
BioSMB platform Pall's BioSMB platform is the first continuous, multi-column chromatography system with a disposable flow path. Ideal for bind and elute chromatography, the system reduces buffer tank requirements, even for complex separation applications. The integrated, single-use valve array easily services up to 16 columns/devices with minimal operator interaction. Reducing space requirements and costs, the BioSMB system delivers a scalable, flexible, and single-use path to multi-column applications, along with unsurpassed productivity per unit area of manufacturing space.
