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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
