Congratulations Malvern. Malvern Instruments Ltd. expands with the recently acquired GE Healthcare Life Sciences company’s MicroCal microcalorimetry business. Its great to see products getting through to production close to their original concept!
The Isothermal titration microcalorimetry (ITC) is a very important tool in drug discovery as well as for the regulation and study of protein interaction. MicroCal ITC systems determine the heat released or absorbed directly during a biomolecular binding event. This helps obtain a label-free direct measurement of binding affinity and thermodynamics in one experiment. Comprehensive information is offered for studying a wide range of biomolecular interactions.

HSD assisted in developing a disposable suturing tool initiated by a grant from TEDCO to transfer and commercialize technology. Designed to be an inexpensive, disposable suturing tool that places sutures at regular intervals by means of a suturing guide. To place a stitch with this device, a surgeon simply places the fascia layer between the two arms of the device and squeezes the trigger. The device also protects the needle from accidentally puncturing the internal organs without the assistance of other currently used protective equipment. HSD designed, engineered and prototyped multiple concepts leading to a final working proof of concept for use in pre-clinical trials.

Check out the new PrimeraDx Software. HSD is proud to see the Modaplex software GUI integrated into the Qiagen Modaplex system designed to automatically run the instrument. Easy to use plate map creation using touch screen s sets up the PCR reactions for simple runs. The software takes it from there! The graphical user interface design is geared for simple user set up and sample runs of complex single well reactions.
The Modaplex System is an automated, high throughput and high multiplex real-time PCR and capillary electrophoresis instrument. The system is capable of running up to 48 samples and reporting on up to 60 targets per sample in 3.5 hours. Both instrument and GUI were concurrently designed to reduce the complexity for clinical researchers.
