PromoCell GmbH

Wide Range of Cytokines & Growth Factors

PromoKine offers a huge and continuously growing range of recombinant cytokines, chemokines, growth factors, soluble receptors and CD antigens (human, mouse, rat) that are produced in E. coli, yeast, insect, plant or mammalian cells. They are highly purified, biologically active and stable and are available in standard and very economic bulk sizes.

PromoKine has also extended its range of animal-free cytokines and growth factors that are produced in plants and are thus free of animal components, serum, endotoxins and antibiotics. These are also free of human, animal or bacterial infectious agents as well as other endogenous mammalian agents that might cause unwanted cell responses. They show very low proteolytic, pyrogenic and inflammatory activity compared to other commercially available proteins. Moreover, they retain proper eukaryotic folding and glycosylation, resulting in increased stability and biological activity. 

In addition, PromoKine offers a huge variety of high-quality antibodies and ELISAs for the analysis of cytokines and growth factors as well as other interesting targets in cell biology.

The PromoCell MSC Growth Medium DXF eliminates the risks of using traditional FCS-containing MSC media and this innovative formulation provides significant benefits.


Chemically defined and humanized culture of MSC

Undifferentiated Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) can be expanded in vitro to produce of large numbers of cells. For this expansion, traditional MSC culture media that contains special pre-qualified lots of fetal calf serum has been necessary. In addition to the serious ethical concerns relating to the use of FCS, this ill-defined component of animal origin is the major obstacle in providing consistent culture conditions and optimal performance of MSC.

The PromoCell MSC Growth Medium DXF eliminates the risks of using traditional FCS-containing MSC media. This innovative formulation provides significant benefits:

·  Chemically defined

·  Humanized: animal-free / xeno-free

·  No adaption of cells required

·  Outstanding expansion performance

·  Maintenance of multipotency

·  Supports primary isolation

·  Standardized: minimal lot-to-lot variation

·  Cost effective: more cells with less medium

For economical serum-free routine culture of MSC, the MSC Growth Medium DXF may be used in combination with bovine fibronectin as an ECM coating and our Detach Kit. For chemically defined culture conditions, the trypsin-containing DetachKit should be replaced by the Cell Dissociation Solution ACF. The use of human fibronectin and the Cell Dissociation Solution ACF completes the MSC Growth Medium DXF to yield a powerful animal-free and chemically defined complete culture system.

Advanced Analytical Technologies

The Fragment Analyzer™ by Advanced Analytical is a fluorescence-based capillary electrophoresis instrument for both sizing and quantifying nucleic acids (DNA and RNA).

Advanced Analytical Technologies

By using a sensitive intercalating dye coupled with a powerful LED light source, Fragment Analyzer™ Automated CE System obviates the need for fluorescent labeled primers and can be used to separate dsDNA fragments and RNA (mRNA and total RNA). The Fragment Analyzer™ Automated CE System is the most flexible system on the market today, with the greatest sensitivity, the highest separation resolution over a wide range, the widest dynamic range and the fastest separation times.

This instrument comes available for customers who wish to run either 12 samples or 96 samples at a time.

Currently kits are available to:

• quantify and qualify NGS fragments.
• quantify and qualify RNA.
• quantify and qualify genomic DNA.
• do Mutation Detection, also known as TILLiNG, a reverse genetics technique.

The application kits help laboratories to streamline workflow and avoid bottlenecks typically found with competitive lab-on-a-chip methods. Gels formulated to provide high resolution separation are also available for general fragment analysis, such as SSR/microsatellites, small and large PCR fragments (amplicons) and resolve fragments sized between 10 bp and 40,000 bp with resolution down to 2bp.

Each and every kit is performance-tested prior to shipment to ensure quality, accuracy and ease of use for customers. Most kits require a single pipetting step before placement of the sample plate onto the instrument.

An analytical software package, PROSize™, greatly reduces post-separation analysis time. Put them all together — the instrument itself, the QC-tested application kits, and the analytical software — and the combination makes the Fragment Analyzer™ Automated CE System a powerful package for reducing labor and improving lab workflow and throughput.

Cambridge Epigenetix Ltd.

Cambridge Epigenetix Ltd., a spin out biosciences company, has announced the launch of its innovative TrueMethyl™ Kits.

Cambridge Epigenetix Ltd.

Available to order now via its website at, the kits represent a ground-breaking development for the epigenetics industry.  

TrueMethyl™ brings unprecedented clarity to the analysis of DNA by providing quantitative, accurate and repeatable single-base resolution sequencing of the modified bases hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) and methylcytosine (5-mC) for the first time.  Early studies indicate that these modifications may have distinct and important physiological functions.

Traditional bisulfite sequencing cannot discriminate between 5-hmC and 5-mC. Recent studies have shown that at some sites in the genome the level of 5-hmC can be comparable to the level of 5-mC, emphasizing the importance of identifying these variants accurately. The high quality and easy to use TrueMethyl™ kits utilize innovative oxidative bisulfite sequencing (oxBS-Seq), a chemistry-based technology invented by Prof. Shankar Balasubramanian and Michael Booth from the University of Cambridge.

TrueMethyl™ kits can be used with a variety of common platforms including next generation sequencing systems, methylation arrays, and targeted assays. Trials of the kits conducted at leading research centers around the world have already begun to yield new insights into genome function and highlighted the advantages of TrueMethyl™ relative to traditional approaches.

Prof. Wolf Reik, group leader at the The Babraham Institute and the senior author of the recently published Cell Stem Cell paper which is the first published study using TrueMethyl™ said, “Employing chemical oxidation gives very high conversion efficiencies and minimises sequence context effects, giving results of unparalleled quality. Consequently, this pioneering analytical method opens new avenues for basic research, pharmaceutical discovery and diagnostics. This technology was pivotal in enabling us to accurately profile 5-hmC and 5-mC during demethylation of DNA.”
