Biotage Introduces Highly-Selective ExploraSep 96-Well Screening Plates based on Molecularly Imprinted Polymers

15.07.2010
Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading supplier of tools and technology for analytical and medicinal chemistry, announced the introduction of ExploraSep 96-well screening plates to identify optimum scavengers.

The 4 different screening plates deliver 128 selective resins based on high-performance, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs). Biotage provides professional MIPs technical consultation, information on additional formats as well as assistance with data interpretation and process development.

ExploraSep screening plates support rapid method development, reduced cycle times and allow the identification of selective molecular imprinted polymers for impurities such as genotoxins; currently a major concern for the pharmaceutical industry. Candidate MIPs identified during screening can be ordered separately for confirmation studies and then transferred to preparative or process scale applications.

ExploraSep screening plates contain a unique collection of proprietary separation phases based on MIPs and their non-imprinted homologs. The polymers are grouped so that each plate is themed and will target a particular class of impurities. Plate A can be used for screening polar, basic (e.g. amines), neutral (e.g. amides, or esters), and acidic (carboxylic acid) compounds. Plate U targets screening phosphates, phosphonates, sulphates and sulphonates, peptides, proteins as well as anions of carboxylic acids and more weakly binding lactones and neutral phosphates. Plate C can be used for screening 1,2- and 1,3-diols, a-hydroxycarboxylic acids, carbohydrates and hydrophillic peptides under basic conditions. Plate H polymers target non-polar and aromatic compounds.

Like a lock and key, molecularly imprinted polymers bind impurities, not just by chemical means, but also by spatial recognition. This dual-mechanism enables MIPs to be highly selective, working effectively at very low concentrations, getting down to very low impurity levels. In increasingly challenging regulatory climates, MIPs show excellent promise for being able to keep up with ever-tightening regulations. ExploraSep is ideal for researchers working with proprietary compounds, or with highly regulated compounds in many industries such as waste, environmental, chemical, consumer products, pharmaceutical process and more.

Biotage’s process-consumables and scavenging products are supported by a wealth of knowledge and experience in method development and support. “Biotage experts help to guide customers in choosing the right product and most efficient method that best suits their work-flow and development needs”, says Scott Carr, VP of Commercial Operations. “We bring exceptional support to our customers. This new generation of scavenging media raises the bar in terms of product performance and also reflects Biotage’s expertise and continued commitment to the industry.”

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
