Get large numbers of highly pure and fully functional M1 or M2 Monocyte-derived Macrophages (MDM) by simply plating PBMC in our PromoCell Macrophage Generation Medium DXF, which supports Macrophage differentiation with high efficiency and reliability.
The Macrophage Generation Medium DXF is available in two different versions: the M1 Macrophage Generation Medium DXF and the M2 Macrophage Generation Medium DXF. Each of them is specifically optimized for the directed differentiation of M1 or M2 macrophages, respectively. In addition, PromoCell has developed the Macrophage Detachment Solution DXF for gentle and efficient release of macrophages from the culture surface.
As with all of our DXF series media, the Macrophage Generation Medium DXF is chemically defined / xeno-free and thus provides a controlled culture environment devoid of animal component-derived stimuli - a significant benefit, in terms of Monocytes and Macrophages standing for highly reactive immune cells.
MATra is an easy-to-handle, very fast and highly efficient technology for optimized transfection of cell lines and primary cells.
Magnet Assisted Transfection (MATra) is an easy-to-handle, very fast (15 minutes!) and highly efficient technology to transfect cells in culture. With MATra, all types of nucleic acids from plasmid DNA or siRNA to oligonucleotides can be delivered – even into hard-to-transfect cell types such as neuronal or stem cells. Using this new technique, nucleic acids are in a first associated with specific magnetic nanoparticles. A magnetic force is applied then and the nucleic acids will be quantitatively and quickly drawn towards and delivered into the target cells leading to efficient transfection without disturbing the membrane architecture and without causing chromosomal damage. MATra can be used with adherent or suspension cells and is functional with or without serum. Compared to other transfection techniques (e.g. electroporation or lipofection), MATra results in extremely low cytotoxicity and is very cost-effective. MATra can also be adapted to high-throughput transfection assays using robotic stations and adapted protocols.
Our PromoFectin Transfection Reagent provides highly efficient and reproducible delivery of nucleic acids into a variety of cell types, including many hard-to-transfect cell lines and primary cells. It consists of a non-liposomal polymer that is stable, water-soluble and free of any components of animal origin. PromoFectin compacts and protects the nucleic acid of interest, enables efficient transport into the cells via endocytosis and allows for a rapid and almost complete release of the intact nucleic acid into the cytosol – all of which favor the delivery to the nucleus. Transfection with PromoFectin results in very low toxicity and is therefore ideally suited for the transfection of very sensitive cells, yielding optimal effects on gene expression. It can be used for adherent and non-adherent cells and the protocol does not require a medium change. Special cell type-specific PromoFectin variants are also available, which have been developed for an optimized transfection of e.g. endothelial cells (HUVECs, HDMECs etc.), hepatocytes, macrophages, dendritic or neuronal cells.
In addition, PromoKine provides a range of small-sized reporter plasmids (beta-galactosidase, luciferase, GFP, CAT, and SEAP) as well as fusion plasmids, which allow high-level expression of a target gene of interest with a GFP or luciferase fusion tag at its C- or N-terminus. The corresponding reporter assays (luciferase, beta-galactosidase & GFP) are also available.
Revolutionise your performance by transforming your conventional, batch dynamic light scattering system into the stable, automated DynaPro™ Plate Reader. The DynaPro Plate Reader incorporates state of the art technology, providing superior filter-free high throughput dynamic light scattering (DLS or QELS) performance. The non-invasive technology measures samples directly from industry-standard microplates (96, 384, or 1536 well plates) using as little as 4 microliters of sample per well. After the plate is loaded into the DynaPro, the data are collected automatically, in an unattended manner, by the easy-to-use DYNAMICS® software, which supports full integration with industry leading liquid handling robotics. Once the data are collected the samples can be recovered and the plates discarded – no cleaning required!
Save valuable time and increase your productivity by factor 10 or more!
All in all, the DynaPro DLS Plate Reader will help you increase your productivity by a factor of 10 or more when sizing biomolecules and other nanoparticles compared to conventional batch DLS systems. With the DynaPro Plate Reader, you can perform the classic DLS applications but with more confidence. Samples can be loaded in duplicate or triplicate, and scanned several times by the Plate Reader, providing you with data that are a true measure of sample repeatability and reproducibility. Due to the low sample volumes and automated capability, these experiments can be performed in less time and without the hassles of conventional batch DLS. Moreover, because the DynaPro Plate Reader can operate in an unattended fashion, there is no additional ‘cost’ – your valuable time – associated with exploring a much larger number of solution conditions or protein or other nanoparticle constructs. The DynaPro can perform accelerated stability, thermal melting, and temperature studies of multiple samples in parallel.
New: The DynaPro Plate Reader is now available with Extended Temperature Control and On-board Camera! The onboard camera in the DynaPro Plate Reader II can automatically acquire and store images of each well, giving scientists a new dimension of data acquisition, and instant insight into the behavior of their samples.

BioPAT® SIMCA-online is a highly efficient software release for real-time multivariate statistical process monitoring and control of previously established Design Spaces.
Continuous real-time quality control and assurance is a highly desired state in biopharmaceutical manufacturing, which can be achieved by sophisticated process control strategies that use multivariate monitoring techniques to prevent or mitigate the risk of producing a poor quality product. Multivariate monitoring is based on models representing the relationship between parameters, whereas traditional process monitoring is based on univariate rules incapable of revealing correlation patterns and sometimes resulting in misleading conclusions.
BioPAT® SIMCA-online is a highly efficient software release for real-time multivariate statistical process monitoring and control of previously established Design Spaces based on current process parameters and (spectro) analytical data.
The software permits early detection of process deviations and provides user guidance for identifying potential root causes by displaying easy-to-understand graphics. This not only results in improved health, safety and environmental (HSE) performance, but also in enhanced control and assurance of the overall process and product quality.

PromoKine’s plant-derived cytokines and growth factors are free of animal components, serum traces, and antibiotics.
Growing importance of fields like stem cell research require cytokines and growth factors produced in a safe host organism that prevent the occurrence of unwanted cellular responses caused by high endotoxin levels and other bacterial or mammalian impurities. Many commercially available cytokines and growth factors have endotoxin levels and other impurities high enough to seriously affect cellular processes like proliferation or differentiation.
PromoKine’s plant-derived cytokines and growth factors are free of animal components, serum traces, and antibiotics. They are also free of human, animal or bacterial infectious agents and have an endotoxin content typically 20-times lower than proteins produced in E. coli. Thus, they avoid problems caused by too high endotoxin levels and improve critical applications, e.g. in stem cell research.
