PATfinder™ – Lead The Way of Your Process
Production of high value biological therapeutics usually involves complex manufacturing processes with high process variability. PAT aims to enhance bioprocess understanding and implies a holistic approach to ensure that quality is built into products by design. Efficient PAT therefore calls for fast and robust analytical techniques which enables assessment of high quality information about critical quality attributes and key performance indicators as parallel as possible to the manufacturing process. PATfinder™ HPLC is the ideal system for routine gradient separations that enables you to do every analytical task. Equipped with bio-inert ceramic heads, it is deliberately tailored to meet the demands of analytical applications covering a wide range of biomolecules. Its highly sensitive and fast multiwavelength detector enables detection of component peaks even in very fast gradients.

miRNA Select Assay Kits
Bioline, The PCR Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meridian Bioscience, Inc., announces the worldwide release of the EPIK™ miRNA select assays, developed for the study of individual microRNA (miRNA) molecules. The EPIK miRNA select kits compliment the EPIK miRNA panel assays released toward the end of 2015.
EPIK™ miRNA select assays
These individual assays use the same novel algorithm approach developed by MiRXES™ for the panel assays, which employs miRNA-specific reverse transcriptase primers and hemi-nested real-time PCR primers along with Bioline reverse transcriptase, SensiSMART™ with SYBR®1 Green, and highly optimized buffers. The resulting assays enable detection of extremely low levels of miRNA with very high specificity, allowing the discrimination between closely related miRNA sequences.

Field-Flow Fractionation of Proteins, Macromolecules, and Nanoparticles
The Postnova AF2000 MultiFlow is a modular, high-performance flow fieldflow fractionation (FFF) platform that uses a unique crossflow field design. Samples are separated by their dynamic diffusion on the basis of molar mass or particle size. Because of this design and the absence of any stationary phase, FFF on the AF2000 MultiFlow can be performed without exerting shear forces and stress on the molecules or particles being separated.

The AF2000 can be run with different eluents under wide-ranging temperature conditions, and the same system can be used for running planar asymmetric flow FFF (AF4) or circular hollow fiber flow FFF (HF5) separations. Consequently, the AF2000 MultiFlow is an ideal platform for the characterization of proteins, antibodies, aggregates, vaccines, virus-like particles (VLPs), liposomes, nanoparticles, and natural or synthetic polymers.
AF2000 MultiFlow
Various add-on modules, extra options, and special FFF detectors are available, such as multi-angle light scattering (MALS) and dynamic light scattering (DLS). The AF2000 series has been designed for easy interfacing with high-end detection technologies from other suppliers, such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), that may already be at use in your laboratory.
