Fermentas Ltd. is a R&D and manufacturing company, which develop and produce products for genetic engineering, molecular biology, genomic research and other biotechnological investigations (over 400 items). More than 99 % of the products are exported. Expansion of efforts to the field of molecular diagnostics is taking place at the present time. Big scale production of kits for molecular diagnostics is planned.
The enterprise of biotechnological pharmacy Sicor Biotech Ltd. in Lithuania is producing recombinant proteins for medical use (interferon alpha-2b, human growth hormone, granulocyte colonies stimulating factor, erythropoietin). It is the only factory of such a profile in Eastern and Central Europe. Sicor Biotech Ltd. is a member of TEVA group (TEVA Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., Israel). It has strong and very well equipped research centre, developing technologies for production of recombinant proteins.
The success of Lithuanian Biotech is underscored by the fact that the Institute of Biotechnology in Vilnius has attracted back to Lithuania seventeen (17) scientists who have spent over 3 years abroad. They have now returned to carry out their research in Lithuania bringing with them experience, knowledge and funds.
The Lithuanian government has increased funding of biotech research in the last five years and established new programs such as the Industrial Biotechnology Program. Very appropriate, this year's ScanBalt Forum takes place in Vilnius 24-26 September, organized by the Institute of Biotechnology and the Lithuanian Association of Biotechnology and in parallel with the annual ScanBalt Biomaterial Days.

The responsible organizer of ScanBalt Forum 2008, dr. Daumantas Matulis, the head of Laboratory of Biothermodynamics and Drug Design, Institute of Biotechnology, says: "The growing importance of life sciences and biotechnology in Lithuania is being recognized with ScanBalt Forum 2008 to take place in Vilnius. This is a chance to promote Lithuania as an attractive place to work, live and invest. We intend to further strengthen our position as a strong player within life sciences and biotechnology in the Baltic Sea Region - also called ScanBalt BioRegion".

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
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...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale
Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
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...
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...
