Monolith Summer School and Symposium
The Monolith Summer School and Symposium (MSS) is dedicated to the application as well as technical and theoretical innovations in the production and analytics of biological macromolecules and nanoparticles. The event is intended for scientists involved in biopharmaceutical production processes and focuses on process development (PD) and process analytical technology (PAT).

MSS2018 will be held from 15–20 June 2018 in the beautiful coastal town of Portorož, Slovenia. Compared to prior MSS events which concentrated on scientific innovations achieved with monolith separation technology, the 2018 and future MSS events will shift focus to bioprocessing applications best served by monoliths, including the purification of viruses such as AAV, large and minicircle plasmids, exosomes, large proteins, and other nanoparticles. In addition, monolith applications in PAT will be highlighted. For more information, please visit

Pilot Cell Line Development Program
Berkeley Lights, Inc. (BLI) announces a pilot cell line development program with Shire. Under the program, BLI will install a Beacon™ optofluidic platform at Shire's facility to validate the time and cost savings associated with the Beacon's cell line development (CLD) workflow.

The workflow can significantly reduce CLD timelines, accelerate therapeutics to market, and reduce overall costs by selecting the top clones in just five days. Individual cells are isolated, cultured, and assayed at multiple time points and selected for scale up based upon user specified characteristics including growth rate, assay results, and morphology.
The Beacon optofluidic platform enables the tracking, monitoring, and visualization of single cell manipulation and cell to cell interaction in a nanofluidic chip. By stringing together four basic modules: import, culture, assay, and export; integrated workflows can be implemented for cell line development, antibody discovery and engineering, gene editing, and research.

New Center for Biotech Startups in Manhattan
NYU Langone Medical Center will launch a large-scale biotech "incubator" in Manhattan at the end of 2017. The new center, named “BioLabs@NYULangone,” is designed to house up to 35 startup companies in 50,000 sq ft of fully equipped lab and office space. NYU Langone's operations partner for the project is BioLabs.

Each new company to open shop will start with a package of tailored laboratory equipment and supplies. BioLabs staff will marshal educational programming and operational support, enabling startups to focus on science and move more quickly into their own space without investing heavily in equipment and non-research personnel.
The new facility will occupy two full floors at 180 Varick Street, including 48 benches in the "open lab," three large private labs, three medium private labs, nine small private labs, along with 30 offices, conference rooms, and state-of-the-art event space. Twenty startup companies have already applied to rent space in the new center.
