TTP s and Midwest Scientific s Small-Scale Bioreactor for Shaker Systems, Media Cybernetics Color-Pro Plug-In, ImagePro Version 5.0, and Sigma-Aldrich s 2004-2005 Cell Signaling and Neuroscience Catalog


TTP and Midwest Scientific have released a disposable culture system for high-throughput screening of process parameters and mammalian production cell lines. The small-scale bioreactor for shaker systems, manufactured by TTP, has a nominal volume of 50 mL with a culture volume of 1 to 40 mL.

The cell culture system is designed to mimic standard bioreactor conditions by offering efficient gas exchange trough a hydrophobic membrane, the companies said.

Media Cybernetics has announced the release of its Color-Pro Plug-in module for color management in image analysis applications.

The module allows users of the company's ImagePro Version 5.0 image analysis software to manage the display of color fidelity of their images and see accurate, consistent colors across their imaging systems, the company said.

Sigma-Aldrich has released its 2004-2005 Cell Signaling and Neuroscience catalog, which features over 6,000 products organized by area of interest, including over 1,000 new products.

The catalog also contains a variety of cell-signaling pathway schematics and technical product information, including literature references and chemical structures, the company said.
