foodproof® real-time PCR kits

To fulfill its responsibility towards the consumer, BIOTECON Diagnostics decided to develop high-quality detection kits for food allergens. Therewith, the well-known and respected spectrum offoodproof® real-time PCR kits is extended by another interesting product division.

The first allergen kits that will be launched by the company from Potsdam, Germany, are the foodproof® Celery Detection Kit and the foodproof® Gluten Detection Kit. More allergen kits for the detection of soy, peanut and hazelnut will follow soon. In combination with the foodproof® Sample Preparation Kit III for theextraction of plant DNA, this kits allows simple and safe detection of allergens in all kind of foods. Depending on the source of literature the prevalence of food allergies is between 2 – 4 % for adults and 4 -8% for children.

The foodproof® Sample Preparation Kit III allows the extraction of highly purified DNA even from complex foods or processed matrices. To validate the foodproof® Allergen Detection Kits final products, raw materials and swab samples have been successfully tested. The kit cannot be only used for foods, finished products and raw materials, but also for cleaning validations. In addition, BIOTECON Diagnostics has developed a standardized reference material, Allergen RM 800, to create a standard curve for exact quantification.

More allergen kits for the detection of mustard, sesame, lupine and crustacean will be developed next year. Also it is planned to develop multiplex kits, to detect up to three different allergen-parameters within one reaction.

Food allergens became more important, because the frequency in the population has grown in the last decades. The reasons are still not totally clear; often it is credited to changing environmental influences and diets. Even the smallest amounts of allergens can cause severe allergic reactions up to life-threatening symptoms. For the consumer, the only protection is avoidance. According to EU-regulation 2007/68/EG 14, different allergenic ingredients have to be labeled in Europe on the products. Until now there is no threshold value in Europe or elsewhere. Therefore, the zero tolerance rule applies, even foods that only contain traces of allergens have to be labeled accordingly.

Dr. Kornelia Berghof-Jäger, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Germany-based corporation BIOTECON Diagnostics therefore announced that „the expansion of our product portfolio by test kits for the detection of food allergens is a consequent continuation of our strategy to cover all aspects of food safety diagnostics bymolecular methods.“

„The new product line allows the users of our foodproof® system to enter new markets with the existing laboratory equipment without any additional financial investments.”  emphasizes Alois Schneiderbauer, Chief Business Officer (CBO) of BIOTECON Diagnostics stated.

Sartorius

BioPAT® SIMCA-online is a highly efficient software release for real-time multivariate statistical process monitoring and control of previously established Design Spaces.

Sartorius

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.

INFORS HT

With Iris 6 INFORS HT releases a new SCADA software package forparallel bioprocess control. Iris 6 brings a fresh new look and a whole raft of new features to one of themost flexible and user friendly bioprocess control software programs available today. A special versionfor use with Multitron incubation shakers allows comprehensive process validation.

“Beginners will love the modern design and the easy navigation”, says Dr. Tony Allman, productmanager INFORS HT. A new ribbon menu provides quick access to the bioreactor and parametersettings. A variety of graphical displays such as correlation and bar graphs allow an easy interpretationof process data. The new version allows the user to annotate on-line graphics while a fermentation isin progress and to time-stamp samples for easy reference.

Advanced features such as the feedback control using sequences allow the experienced user toexplore all possibilities of bioprocess control. The seamless integration of both analysed and calculatedprocess parameters gives the users the possibility to achieve a combined record of all process data.“The implementation of off-line analysed parameters like OD or protein yield in the batch record file isgreat, now I can record all data in one single file”, says Dr. Michael Kaempf, Project Leader BioprocessDevelopment, EMPA (Switzerland). An enhanced reporter module makes creation of batch tickets, data export and printing both comprehensive and simple.

The Iris Parallel Bioprocess Control Software is available in 3 different packages depending on the type of equipment. The same software provides high quality data acquisition and sophisticated controlstrategies from shake flask up to pilot production.

All software packages can be qualified for validation purposes relating to FDA CFR Part 11, 21.

PromoCell

PromoKine’s plant-derived cytokines and growth factors are free of animal components, serum traces, and antibiotics.

PromoCell

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.
