Promega Corporation Key Developments

Promega Corp., Expand with New $30 Million Plant

Promega Corp. announced another manufacturing building at 5455 Nobel Drive, a short jog south in the Fitchburg Technology Campus. The 100,000-square-foot building, more on the conventional side, will be used to package and ship the enzymes, proteins and other biological products made at its BioPharmaceutical Technology Center (BTC), 5445 E. Cheryl Pkwy. The BTC produces a wide variety of tools used worldwide for scientific research, cell analysis and DNA tests for human identification.

Promega Corporation to Break Ground for New Processing and Manufacturing Facility

Promega Corporation announced that the company will break ground for a new processing and manufacturing facility near its primary campus in Fitchburg on July 10, 2014. The facility will allow for efficiency improvements for processing, packaging, staging and shipping products. The new processing and manufacturing facility will initially work with processing, packaging, staging and shipping. In addition, the floor plan will allow for potential expansion of manufacturing and logistics operations to meet growing business needs in the future. Most Promega products are temperature sensitive and require specialized temperature controlled facilities and equipment to hold the inventory stock for daily processing. Inventory will be pulled from designated locations, processed, packed and shipped out to customers worldwide. Raw materials and other inventory needed to process products will be received and housed at the facility, and used on-site or distributed to other Promega facilities as needed.

Promega Launches New Mass Spectrometry Reagents

Promega Corporation has introduced new mass spectrometry reagents, IdeS Protease, and human and yeast protein extracts for mass spectrometry applications. The IdeS Protease enables fast, easy, high performance digestion of immunoglobulin, while the Human and Yeast Protein Extracts provide a test material for optimizing mass spec sample preparation. The new products add to the company's existing range of proteases and services to improve mass spec. sample prep. workflows. IdeS Protease is a recombinant, engineered version of the immunoglobulin-degrading enzyme from Streptococcus pyogenes. It is a highly specific protease that slices Immunoglobulin G (IgG) at a single, targeted site, offering 100% digestion in 30 minutes with no optimization. IdeS can be used to characterize therapeutic antibody candidates using LC/MS, and contains a histidine tag for easy removal. The versatile Promega IdeS enzyme cuts IgGs from a range of species, as well as Fc-fusion proteins. The new yeast and human protein extracts are designed specifically for mass spectrometry applications. Available in either predigested, cleaned form for immediate use in LC/MS analysis or intact, undigested form to provide a test material for optimizing mass spec protein sample preparation, the extracts provide clean, consistent, quantified, model system samples for LC/MS method development and instrument monitoring. The yeast extracts are beneficial for users who prefer working with a relatively compact and well-studied proteome, whereas the human extract, with large dynamic range, provides the opportunity to work with complex proteomes. The new products are: MS Compatible Yeast Protein Extract, Digest; MS Compatible Human Protein Extract, Digest; MS Compatible Yeast Protein Extract, Intact; and MS Compatible Human Protein Extract, Intact.
