Pluripotent cells have the unique ability to both self-renew and differentiate into all three germ layers, representing every cell in the human body. Embryoid bodies, generated from MyCell® iPSCs, were allowed to spontaneously differentiate for 21 days and were stained for smooth muscle actin (red), Tuj1 (yellow) and alpha feto-protein (green), which demonstrates the presence of all 3 germ layers and confirms the starting population’s pluripotency.

Optimized Coriolis and Electromagnetic Flow Instruments
Endress+Hauser releases Proline 300/500, a family of industry optimized “smart” Coriolis mass and electromagnetic flow instruments that simplify installation, speed commissioning, and streamline both operation and maintenance activities.

The Proline Promass Coriolis mass flowmeters are available in 11 models ranging in sizes from 1/24 to 14 inches in diameter, for measuring flows up to 100,000 tons per day. Proline Promag flowmeters are available in three models in sizes from 1/12 to 78 inches for volume flows up to 634 million gallons per day.  Both types are available in models suitable for high temperature, corrosive fluid, hygienic, and sterile process applications.
Both families provide access via the device’s display, a web server, a wireless LAN, handheld devices, asset management or process automation solutions, and Fieldbus protocol. Each provides fast commissioning, in-situ device verification during operation, continuous self-diagnostics, and automatic on-board data storage, making it easy to replace and commission a new flow sensor. Optional Heartbeat Monitoring allows for customer identification of device trends from process influences such as buildup, settling solids or liquids, erosion, corrosion, and multi-phase fluid flows.

Custom Cloning Module to Advance Protein and Antibody Engineering Capabilities
Custom Cloning Module
SGI-DNA Inc., a Synthetic Genomics Inc. company, announces the launch of the Custom Cloning Module for its BioXp™ 3200 System, equipping researchers with the ability to synthesize and clone DNA directly into their vector of choice in an overnight run.

The benchtop BioXp System, the world's first DNA printer, is a genomic workstation that generates high-quality DNA. With the introduction of the Custom Cloning Module, the BioXp System now has the additional capability to assemble and simultaneously deliver up to 32 DNA clones into any vector from custom DNA sequences submitted electronically. The launch of this module allows researchers to add vectors for automated Gibson Assembly® cloning from de novo generated DNA fragments. This evolution eliminates the need for subcloning and further automates and shortens molecular biology work flows.
The Custom Cloning Module has distinct benefits for therapeutic antibody developers who rely upon iterative improvement of the molecules' affinity, specificity, stability, solubility, and immunogenicity. With the ability to utilize any vector in the DNA cloning process, including the researchers' own vectors, this process can be optimized to allow much more freedom in the creation of antibodies with higher affinity for their target.
