The new facility will expand the current operations, increase operational efficiency and control to continue to excel in the global biotechnology market. Cygnus is dedicated to provide top-notch products and the highest level of scientific support, while enhancing modern technology to make the world a better place.
NEW.......Protein A ELISA kit, Catalog #F400Z for use with problematic samples.
This kit uses a new conjugate, Cat # F401Z, with a special formulation made available for problematic samples that do not yield acceptable recovery of Protein A in the F400 kit.
2nd Generation Pichia pastoris HCP ELISA kit
This kit employs our latest advances in HCP analysis and is more specific than our 1st Generation, F140 Pichia pastoris HCP ELISA kit.
DNA Amplification kits in both deep well and tube format are now available for CHO and E.coli. The kits contain the reagents for DNA extraction as well as calibrated DNA standards and validated primers for DNA amplification. Residual DNA can be confidently measured to 1 part per billion levels.
Residual Host Cell DNA kits are now available in tubes for users who do not have the ability to centrifuge deep well plates. CHO, E.coli, and NS/0 residual host cell DNA kits utlize PicroGreen® dye and include DNA Extraction reagents and cell line specific calibrators.
Residual Host Cell DNA kits in deep well format.
Residual Host Cell DNA kits are now available in a deep well format. CHO, E.coli and NS/0 residual host cell DNA kits are a dye binding assay utilizing PicoGreen® dye. The kits utilize our DNA Extraction method and include cell line specific calibrators.
DNA Extraction Kits
Two formats are available for our DNA Extraction Kits. The DNA extraction can take place in an easy to use deep well extraction plate or in common sterile microfuge tubes. The high throughput method uses a deep well extraction plate with time to completion in less than 2 hours. The superior co-precipitating agent used in the kit ensures that pellets remain seated until ready for use thereby minimizing additional centrifugation.
Improved Sample Treatment Procedure for Protein A ELISA, #F400.
This new high throughput sample treatment procedure reduces tedious pipetting while increasing throughput of the sample processing step. Included with the kit is the Sample Treatment Plate which minimizes problems associated with handling multiple microfuge tubes.
Improved Insulin ELISA kit, Cat# F040.
Two more standards have been added to the standards set to include 2ng/mL and 10ng/mL. The kit will now better conform to analytical guidelines suggesting the use of at least 6 standards.
HEK 293 HCP ELISA kit - 2nd Generation, Cat# F650.
This new and improved HCP ELISA kit uses antibodies derived from the same pool of goat anti-HEK antiserum used in the 1st generation kit, however this antiserum has now been affinity purified with new and more representative preparation of HCPs typically found in virus, vaccine, and recombinant proteins products.
CHO HCP ELISA kit - 3rd Generation, Cat# F550.
