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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
