CPhI Japan sees Japanese R&D reinvigorated
Generics consumption increasing, and the removal of long-list products opens up funding Tokyo, 25th March 2019: CPhI Japan closes as a new wave of innovation is rising across the country, driven by structural and regulatory changes. A focus on removing long-list products, and the increased use of generics has seen capital re-directed into R&D – with Takeda-Shire now possessing the world’s second largest pipeline of drug targets (211). In a ground-breaking session at the event, Ian Haydock, Editor-In-Chief, Asia Pacific Informa Intelligence, highlighted how Japan has taken a lead in providing a supporting regulatory environment for orphan indications through its AMED programme. Additionally, Japan is also simultaneously emerging as a particularly prominent ecosystem for cell and gene therapy innovators. What is most significant about the trends highlighted at CPhI Japan is that a consensus seems to be emerging for the removal of long-listed products. Long promoted as an anti-innovation strategy, it is increasingly viewed as an approach that is helping

New built-in syringe pump: Precision-SY
New built-in syringe pump: Precision-SY
SPETEC GmbH is presenting a new product. The Precision-SY OEM built-in syringe pump was specially developed for use in equipment where high precision in the microliter and nanoliter range is required when introducing samples or reagents. It is specially matched to the requirements of the analysis equipment, i.e. the shape and colour of the mounting plate are tailored to customer requirements. The core elements of the pumps are a stepper motor, a spindle, a linear guideway, a syringe holder and replaceable syringes. Thanks to the high stepper motor resolution of 25,600 steps per revolution, individual steps during the movement sequence are barely perceptible. A connecting element that forms a rigid connection between the spindle and the syringe plunger transmits the drive force from the stepper motor, thus delivering the feed motion for filling or emptying the syringe. Metering syringes with volumes between 0.05 ml and 10 ml are used. It is optionally available with

Homology Modeling Homology Modeling | Profacgen
Homology Modeling
Homology Modeling | Profacgen Homology modeling (also known as comparative modeling) is, to date, the most reliable and well-established computational approach for predicting protein structures. In this method, one or more experimental three-dimensional structures of related homologous proteins are identified and used as templates, based on which an atomic-resolution model of the ”target” protein is built from its amino acid sequence. It has been shown that three-dimensional protein structure is evolutionarily more conserved than would be expected on the basis of sequence conservation alone. Thus, even proteins that have diverged appreciably in sequence but still share detectable similarity will also share common structural properties, particularly the overall folding.

First hand experience of the dangers of liquid nitrogen As experienced by Peak Scientific’s Chairman, Robin MacGeachy,
First hand experience of the dangers of liquid nitrogen
As experienced by Peak Scientific’s Chairman, Robin MacGeachy, Labs can remove the dangers of nitrogen cylinders or nitrogen dewars by using a nitrogen generator to supply their instruments. Recently, Peak Scientific’s Founder and Chairman was visiting the Peak Scientific office in Australia. The trip will certainly be memorable as, while visiting a university, a liquid nitrogen dewar fell over into the road, just in front of Robin’s car and started leaking, as pictured on the right. Storing nitrogen in unsecured wheeled nitrogen dewars is dangerous and clearly an accident waiting to happen. Luckily, neither Robin, his passenger or anyone at the University were injured, and Robin’s car also escaped any damage. However, if the accident had happened just a moment later, the outcome could have been very different. Even when liquid nitrogen dewars are properly secured, they are not the safest way to supply nitrogen gas to your laboratory. Storing thousands of litres of pressurized nitrogen can be very dangerous if the dewar or cylinder

Enzyme Activity Assay Enzyme Activity Assay | Profacgen
Enzyme Activity Assay
Enzyme Activity Assay | Profacgen Enzyme is a large category of bio-molecules that catalyze various biological processes including metabolic processes, cellular signaling and regulation, cell division and apoptosis. Enzymatic reactions convert substrate molecules into chemically modified molecules products with high specificity and accuracy. These modifications include proteolytic digestion, glycolytic degradation, phosphorylation, acylation, glycosylation or oxidative and reductive processes. As play important roles in numerous physiological activities, many of them become critical targets for diseases treatments. For example, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) plays critical role in anti-tumor metastasis. Protein kinase B (PKB) and protein kinase C (PKC) are major drug targets for clinical treatment of diabetes. HIC and HCV viral proteinase can serve as therapeutic target for antiviral therapy. Cytochrome P450 is a vital enzyme during drug metabolism and has great influence on thermoregulation. Based
