Waters unveils UPLC solution
Waters has launched the first Ultra Performance LC (UPLC) analytical size-exclusion chromatography (SEC) solution for the characterization of proteins and their aggregates.

The UPLC solution combines the first commercial sub two-micron particle for SEC applications- the new patent pending Acquity UPLC BEH200, 1.7 SEC Columns- with Waters' Acquity UPLC System to give manufacturers the ability to separate and quantify monoclonal antibodies (mAb) and their aggregates in less than four minutes, faster than conventional liquid chromatography. The UPLC solution allows customers to monitor monoclonal antibody aggregation at speeds up to 10 times faster than other similar solutions, in order to overcome the challenges in developing novel biotherapeutics in less time and at lower costs.

Millipore launches ICW-3000 system
Millipore has introduced ICW-3000 water purification system. The new system produces a constant and reliable source of ultrapure water for Dionex IC (ion chromatography) systems.

Ultrapure water from the ICW-3000 system can increase the precision of IC analyses. The ICW-3000 system provides a continual flow of ultrapure water to the eluent generator and regenerant lines of the suppressor. This reduces the carbonate content in the water-sharply decreasing contamination risks and improving experiment reproducibility, while also eliminating the need for helium. The water system also eliminates the need for eluent preparation and the instrument downtime that occurs when filling eluent bottles.

Biotage introduces new peptide synthesizer
Biotage has introduced Syro Wave-microwave and parallel peptide synthesizer. The Syro Wave is a result of the joint development project of Biotage and MultiSynTech. It combines the proven performance of the established MultiSynTech robotic synthesizer with Biotage microwave technology. The Syro Wave peptide synthesis system offers both microwave and parallel peptide synthesis capabilities. Syro Wave increases productivity, yield and purity while cutting costs and saving time.

MathWorks' new version of SimBiology
MathWorks has introduced the latest version of SimBiology that provides new features and enhanced performance capabilities, including multiple dosing schemes, for pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) modeling and simulation of biological systems. Pharmacokineticists and computational biologists use SimBiology to create, simulate, and analyze both mechanistic and PK/PD models in one software environment. SimBiology simplifies the modeling workflow and reduces simulation and fitting times by providing a graphical interface for constructing mechanistic models.Users can select from multiple fitting algorithms, including stochastic approximation expectation-maximization (SAEM), and compare results with other fitting algorithms. The tool's graphical interface also enables users to apply multiple dosing schemes to their models, eliminating the need to manually schedule dosing.
