PRIMACYT Cell Culture GmbH Approved as EU Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing

18.07.2013
PRIMACYT Cell Culture Technology GmbH ("PRIMACYT" www.primacyt.com), Schwerin, a leading German company in the field of cell culture systems for hepatocytes, was approved by the European Commission and the EU Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) as a new member of the laboratory network responsible for the method validation

This network is coordinated by the European Union Reference Laboratory in Ispra, Italy. It consists of fourteen European GLP certified testing facilities, including national research centers such as the Scientific Institutes of Public Health in Brussels, RIKILT the Institute of Food Safety, Wageningen, The Netherlands or the Spanish National Center for Microbiology, Madrid.

PRIMACYT is one of three German companies elected by the European Commission for participation in this network. As Dr. Dieter Runge, CEO & President of PRIMACYT said: "We are delighted with the appointment as new network partner. PRIMACYT and its employees managed to meet the stringent tender criteria by delivering highest quality standards. Membership in such an exclusive circle of test and reference laboratories in Europe makes all proud and we look forward to future collaboration possibilities."

Background to Primacyt
The PRIMACYT develops and markets in-vitro technologies that can contribute to the reduction of animal experiments. The Company was honored in 2008 with the Research Award of the Federal Ministry for Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection.

PRIMACYT Cell Culture Technology GmbH ist member of BioCon Valley Mecklenburg-Vorpommern e.V.

Products and services of the young company focus on HEPAC2, a standardized and validated serum-free cell culture system for human hepatocytes. A prime field is the development of pharmaceuticals.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
