Biotage Introduces Highly-Selective ExploraSep 96-Well Screening Plates based on Molecularly Imprinted Polymers

15.07.2010
Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading supplier of tools and technology for analytical and medicinal chemistry, announced the introduction of ExploraSep 96-well screening plates to identify optimum scavengers.

The 4 different screening plates deliver 128 selective resins based on high-performance, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs). Biotage provides professional MIPs technical consultation, information on additional formats as well as assistance with data interpretation and process development.

ExploraSep screening plates support rapid method development, reduced cycle times and allow the identification of selective molecular imprinted polymers for impurities such as genotoxins; currently a major concern for the pharmaceutical industry. Candidate MIPs identified during screening can be ordered separately for confirmation studies and then transferred to preparative or process scale applications.

ExploraSep screening plates contain a unique collection of proprietary separation phases based on MIPs and their non-imprinted homologs. The polymers are grouped so that each plate is themed and will target a particular class of impurities. Plate A can be used for screening polar, basic (e.g. amines), neutral (e.g. amides, or esters), and acidic (carboxylic acid) compounds. Plate U targets screening phosphates, phosphonates, sulphates and sulphonates, peptides, proteins as well as anions of carboxylic acids and more weakly binding lactones and neutral phosphates. Plate C can be used for screening 1,2- and 1,3-diols, a-hydroxycarboxylic acids, carbohydrates and hydrophillic peptides under basic conditions. Plate H polymers target non-polar and aromatic compounds.

Like a lock and key, molecularly imprinted polymers bind impurities, not just by chemical means, but also by spatial recognition. This dual-mechanism enables MIPs to be highly selective, working effectively at very low concentrations, getting down to very low impurity levels. In increasingly challenging regulatory climates, MIPs show excellent promise for being able to keep up with ever-tightening regulations. ExploraSep is ideal for researchers working with proprietary compounds, or with highly regulated compounds in many industries such as waste, environmental, chemical, consumer products, pharmaceutical process and more.

Biotage’s process-consumables and scavenging products are supported by a wealth of knowledge and experience in method development and support. “Biotage experts help to guide customers in choosing the right product and most efficient method that best suits their work-flow and development needs”, says Scott Carr, VP of Commercial Operations. “We bring exceptional support to our customers. This new generation of scavenging media raises the bar in terms of product performance and also reflects Biotage’s expertise and continued commitment to the industry.”

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
