Bio-Rad Laboratories

Anti-Idiotypic Antibodies

Bio-Rad Laboratories has extended its range of recombinant monoclonal anti-idiotypic antibodies with the introduction of six antibodies specific to dupilumab (Dupixent) and the addition of new evolocumab (Repatha), ipilimumab (Yervoy), and secukinumab (Cosentyx) antibodies. These ready-made antibodies are suitable for developing selective and sensitive pharmacokinetic (PK) and anti-drug antibody (ADA) assays for dupilumab, evolocumab, ipilimumab, and secukinumab, and their biosimilars.


Micro centrifuge

Ohaus has announced the launch of its FRONTIER 5513L High Speed Micro Centrifuge. It has a space-saving design and intuitive controls. Ohaus claims it is easy to use and cost effective, without sacrificing performance. The FC5513L is capable of generating centrifugal forces up to 15,995 x g, with responsive touch-wheel control that allows for quick and easy on-the-job adjustment. Not to mention the 18 x 1.5/2.0 ml rotor –capable of spinning 18 micro tubes at a time – comes already installed. No learning curve is required.


Cell cultures

The Vitrocell 96 Continuous Flow Exposure System is for high-throughput research involving human cell cultures or tissues exposed directly to airborne substances, such as gases, complex mixtures and particles, including nanoparticles. The system replicates the conditions of human physiological exposure at the Air-Liquid Interface. With the capacity to perform up to 11 dilutions, each with eight replicates, and dedicating the 12th insert row for clean air control with also eight replicates, the 96-well plates offer exceptional versatility, allowing for the assessment of multiple endpoints in a single experiment.
