GE Healthcare, Agilent

GE Healthcare introduced this week a new immunogenicity software package for its Biacore T100 label-free protein interaction analysis system.
The new system is to support screening, confirmation, and characterization of anti-drug antibodies during pre-clinical and clinical development. It enables the measurement of anti-drug antibodies in the presence of excess amounts of drugs.
Separately, the company also launched the ImageQuant TL SecurITy software and Installation Qualification and Operational Qualification protocols.
The ImageQuant software offers enhanced data security for analysis and documentation of 1D electrophoresis gels by ImageQuant TL, while IQOQ provides protocols for the ImageQuant 350 chemiluminescence, colorimetry, and fluorescence CCD imaging system, GE said in a statement.
The new products are designed to support the “increasingly stringent” requirements for laboratory data security and operational qualification for 1D electrophoresis gel analysis, the company said. 

Agilent Technologies launched its Bio-Monolith HPLC columns this week.
The columns provide high-resolution and rapid separations of large proteins, antibodies, plasmid DNA, viruses, phages, and other macro biomolecules, the company said in a statement.
The columns contain a short, polymer-based monolith disc, allowing for “flow-rate independent” separations. The monolith structure “virtually” eliminates diffusion as transport between mobile and stationary phase is rapid because there are no pores and no void volumes, Agilent said.
