5th Applied Synthetic Biology in Europe - Banner
Continuing the tradition of this meeting series, ASBE V will present the latest advances in Applied Synthetic Biology research. Covering fundamental and technological discoveries and applications of different biological systems, ASBE V will bring together key partners from both academia and industry. Supported by prestigious keynote speakers such as Jay Keasling, Claudia Vickers, Marileen Dogterom and John van der Oost, ASBE V warmly welcomes early carrier scientists with talks selected from submitted abstracts. Discounts for early career scientists and grants are available upon application. Join ASBE V to share your research and follow the most recent advances in the flourishing Synthetic Biology community!

Registration is open
This meeting has been selected by the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) to offer grants for Early Career Researchers.

Eppendorf – Banner
In these exceptional and unprecedented times, many companies and organizations are eagerly working to advance the development of a vaccine in the context of the current COVID-19 crisis.

New bioprocess technologies such as single-use equipment and process automation open up novel possibilities for quality control and validation. This is especially important in GMP regulated environments such as in the development and manufacturing of new influence vaccines. When facing a pandemic outbreak, the need to smoothly develop new processes and quickly scale-up to clinical production volumes is key to efficiently develop new vaccinations.

Eppendorf, your expert partner in bioprocessing, contributes with its bioprocess solutions and services.

A narrow residence time incubation reactor for continuous virus inactivation based on packed beds

A narrow residence time distribution (RTD) is highly desirable for continuous processes where a strict incubation time must be ensured, such as continuous virus inactivation. A narrow RTD also results in faster startup and shut down phases and limits the broadening of potential disturbances in continuous processes. A packed bed reactor with non-porous inert beads was developed to achieve narrow RTDs.

Coronavirus Collection

In January 2020, China saw an outbreak of a new coronavirus strain now named SARS-CoV-2. Although the animal reservoir for the SARS and MERS viruses are known, this has yet to have been confirmed for SARS-CoV-2. All three strains are transmissible between humans.

To allow the widest possible distribution of relevant research, the Microbiology Society has brought together articles from across our portfolio and made this content freely available until further notice.
