Premier Biosoft International last month released the Enterprise Edition of SimGlycan, a glycan and glycoprotein MS/MS data analysis tool.
Researchers can now set up a custom database and use SimGlycan to search for glycans and glycoproteins using the database. Novel glycans that have not yet been published can be added to private databases by drawing their structure on SimGlycan's drawing canvas, Premier Biosoft said in a statement. A numerical representation of the drawing is submitted to the database, "making it easy to construct customized databases," it added.
Cellexus this week launched the 50 liter format of the CellMaker Regular, a single-use, disposable bioreactor system that provides increased ODs and improved yields for soluble proteins, compared to flask-grown cultures.
The system is designed specifically for culture of pichia, E. coli, and algae cells. In October Cellexus introduced the 8-liter CellMaker system.
