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

PRIMACYT Cell Culture Technology GmbH ("PRIMACYT", 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: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
