Eksigent, Hamilton, Oxford Expression Technologies

Eksigent last week introduced the NanoLC-Ultra for chromatographic separation of complex peptide mixtures. The system delivers gradient precision at high pressure of up to 10,000 psi, twice the pressure of the company’s other Nano-LC instrument, it said in a statement.
The instrument features self-priming and self-purging pumps and a temperature-controlled column compartment that retains retention time reproducibility.

Hamilton this week introduced the MicroLab Nimbus automated pipetting platform for fast plate replication and serial dilutions. It can also process MALDI spotting, single or dual nucleic acid separations, low-throughput ELISA, and other applications, the company said in a statement.

Oxford Expression Technologies last month launched the flashBACGOLD, a baculovirus expression vector “designed specifically to reduce proteolysis, maximize protein secretion and improve membrane protein targeting,” the company said in a statement.
The vector is based on the company’s flashBAC system which uses a single-step method for the generation of baculovirus expression vectors. Plaque purification is not necessary and flashBACGOLD is back-compatible with all existing baculovirus transfer vectors based on homologous recombination in insect cells at the polyhedron locus, the company said.
