Agilent, Ludesi, Geneva Bioinformatics, Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, Millipore

Agilent this week launched the Poroshell 120 LC column and the B.04.01 ChemStation software.
The Poroshell columns provide “rugged, high-resolution separations within the pressure range of any mainstream LC available,” the company said in a statement.
The new version of the ChemStation software has a new Intelligence Reporter feature to simplify data analysis while freeing researchers to focus on measurement results. The Agilent Lab Monitor and Diagnostic software supports all Agilent 1100 and 1200 Series LC instruments independent of the users’ chromatographic data system.

Ludesi launched version 2.0 of its Redfin image and data-management software this week.
The new version allows users to share their Ludesi analyzed experiments and to collaborate on them with colleagues for free; share or un-share experiments by clicking on a button; and e-mail invitations for sharing while granting “read-only” or “read/write” access to shared experiments.
Sharing recipients do not have to be Ludesi customers and downloading of Redfin image- and data-management software is free.

Geneva Bioinformatics and the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics released their Melanie version 7.0 2D gel analysis platform this week.
Features of the new version of the platform include simplified import and visualization of images; reorganized menu structure with icons; and custom and context-related toolbars.
In a statement, GeneBio said version 7.0 avoids inaccuracies due to manual spot editing and minimizes repetitive match editing tasks. GeneBio is offering a discount for newcomers and users upgrading from their existing Melanie version to version 7.0 and 7.0 DIGE.

Millipore last week introduced its PureProteome Nickel Magnetic Beads for the purification of polyhistidine-tagged recombinant proteins.
The beads bind recombinant proteins even in the presence of EDTA, a metal ion chelator, the company said in a statement.
