The Allegro™ STR single-use bioreactors
The Allegro™ STR single-use bioreactors provide outstanding scalable cell culture performance across the working volume 60 – 1000 L. The cubical design and large bottom-driven impeller give enhanced mixing and aeration for numerous cell culture applications. Supported by an extensive package of characterization data, cell culture data and a complete validation guide, process transfers can be well supported. The intuitive handling and semi-automated installation sequence means that bioreactor installation and inflation can be achieved in less than 30 minutes, with minimal operator manipulation required. The reduced height of the systems allows for easy access from floor level to all bioreactor parts.

Software Services to Detect and Report Previously Hidden Mass Spectrometry Data
Veritomyx, Inc. announces the commercial launch of PeakInvestigator™ software services, applying advanced signal processing algorithms to reveal peaks and biomarkers previously hidden within overlaps in raw mass spectral data. The result is more complete and precise peak lists that increase discovery rate and provide faster, more accurate biomarker identification and quantitation results from existing raw mass spectral files.
PeakInvestigator is a high performance computing, software-as-a-service product that can be embedded in any mass spectrometric workflow, or accessed independently for post-processing of mass spec outputs. It processes raw mass spectral scans, and delivers an effective 3–4X resolution increase beyond that visible in the original data. Increased resolution provides the ability to detect and exploit important new biomolecular discoveries previously hidden in data overlapped into a single peak feature. PeakInvestigator™
The introduction of Version 1.2 with this launch extends PeakInvestigator services to all three major classes of mass spectrometers: Time-of-Flight (TOF), Ion trap, and Orbitrap. For more information, please visit
New Columns Improve Laboratory Workflows
AdvanceBio Agilent Technologies Inc. has launched a new line of AdvanceBio SEC columns. The columns represent a significant advance in size-exclusion chromatography, a key technology used to quantify aggregation in biotherapeutics such as monoclonal antibodies. Quantifying aggregation is a vital factor in developing and producing safe, effective biologics.

AdvanceBio SEC columns deliver higher resolution for more accurate quantitation as well as higher sensitivity to quantitate aggregates, even at low levels. Consistency from column to column, batch to batch, and lab to lab ensures that methods can be easily transferred. For more information, please visit
