GE Healthcare s Capto Q and Applied Biosystems Human Genome Survey Microarray V2.0


The Capto Q chromatography medium for protein purification was launched this week by GE Healthcare. The medium is “ideal” for use in capture and intermediate purification of high-expression, high-volume feeds, the company said in a statement. The medium features a “highly” rigid matrix for “wider” working range of flow velocities, bed heights, and sample viscosities, in addition to “high” flow velocities to “increase” volume throughput and “reduce” process time, the company added.

Applied Biosystems released the new Human Genome Survey Microarray V2.0 this week, the company said in a statement. Intended for use with the ABI Expression Array system, the new Survey Microarray contains 2,180 additional annotated genes, bringing the total number of annotated genes to 29,098, the company claimed.
