Thermo Fisher Scientific Adds Inspection Capabilities and Enhanced Detection to its Nextguard X-Ray Platform

To help meet an even broader range of food safety and quality requirements, Thermo Fisher Scientific has added inspection capabilities and enhanced detection to its NextGuard X-ray platform. Launched in 2013 as an affordable foreign object detection system for a wide variety of food applications, the NextGuard system is now designed to also inspect packaged products for flaws such as missing pieces or components using new, easily customizable vision software. The new product verification option allows users to execute a wide range of size, position and count inspections without relying on the X-ray vendor to create new software for each application. The NextGuard product verification software allows customers to use a pull down menu to quickly select and sequence a range of image processing and analysis algorithms. This enables a wide range of size, shape, angle, count and position-based inspections in minutes, rather than waiting weeks for custom software. Also new to the NextGuard platform are several additional algorithms, which target the detection of less dense contaminants such as glass or rocks in complex, textured products such as nuts or tea bag boxes. Optional mass estimation software is designed to utilize the density information in the X-ray image to estimate weight and detect under/over filled products. The system is now configurable for dual rejection, separating contaminated products from other quality errors. This aids in root cause analysis and implementing corrective actions. In addition to software improvements, the enhanced NextGuard also features hardware upgrades. The standard system processor is now six times faster than the first generation NextGuard, supporting high-speed contaminant detection and inspection as well as improved user responsiveness. An optional 0.4 mm-pixel detector is also available that offers 3.2 times better resolution for improved metal detection in lightweight, homogeneous products such as powders or cheese. The NextGuard system was originally developed as an affordable, simple-to-use, performance-oriented X-ray detection system. The goal was to reduce the total cost of ownership in order to provide X-ray detection for companies that could not previously afford the technology for their applications. Since its launch, more than 100 units have been delivered worldwide to a variety of food manufacturing facilities. NextGuard's performance-oriented features also have been driven by a changing industry landscape. These include evolving HACCP standards, increased use of metalized film packaging (which is problematic for metal detectors) and various wet or semi-frozen foods (cheese, ice cream, bakery products) that do not lend themselves to metal detection due to product affect issues.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Appoints New Members to Scientific Advisory Board

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has appointed three new members to its Scientific Advisory Board: Dr. Andrea Califano, Dr. Arnold J. Levine and Dr. Aviv Regev. Dr. Califano is the founding chairman of the department of systems biology at Columbia University, and he currently serves on the board of scientific advisors of the National Cancer Institute. He is also professor of biomedical informatics at Columbia University. Dr. Levine is professor emeritus of systems biology at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, N.J. and professor of pediatrics and of biochemistry with the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Dr. Regev is a core member of the Broad Institute and an associate professor of biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is also an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces New Gene Editing Tool Kits

Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. has introduced GeneArt CRISPR products, the company's new tool kits to make specific changes to DNA in a variety of cells. GeneArt CRISPR products from Thermo Fisher Scientific leverage the type II CRISPR (clustered regulatory interspaced short palindromic repeats)/Cas9 system for genome editing. This is an RNA guided DNA endonuclease system that has two key components, the Cas9 protein that serves as an DNA endonuclease and a non-coding RNA component called guide RNA that confers target specificity. The CRISPR/Cas9 system works in conjunction with endogenous repair mechanisms to alter DNA within a cell. GeneArt CRISPR Nuclease mRNA is ready to transfect or microinject wild type Cas9 in mRNA format. The mRNA format is best for multiplexed screening of gRNA sequences, applications that require delivery by microinjection, and easier dosage optimization of Cas9 protein to gRNA in the cell. Cas9 mRNA is co-transfected with 1 or more custom GeneArt CRISPR Strings DNA encoding target-specific guide RNA (gRNA) or in vitro transcribed gRNA which removes promoter constraints and is a better option for difficult to transfect cells such as induced pluripotent stem cells, or iPSCs. The GeneArt CRISPR Nuclease Vector Kits offer reporter and enrichment tags for tracking gene editing experiments and are great for cloning and re-use of confirmed gRNA sequences. The GeneArt CRISPR Nuclease Vector with CD4 Enrichment is a vector system for expression of the functional components of the CRISPR/Cas9 technology with a CD4 reporter. The CD4 reporter offers magnetic bead-based sorting/enrichment of Cas9 & CRISPR expressing cells using Dynabeads CD4 magnetic beads. Transfection efficiency can also be tracked using anti-CD4 fluorescent antibodies. The GeneArt CRISPR Nuclease Vector with OFP Reporter is a similar expression vector system with an orange fluorescent protein (OFP) reporter. The OFP reporter allows for fluorescence-based tracking of transfection efficiency, as well as FACS-based sorting/enrichment of Cas9 and CRISPR expressing cells. GeneArt CRISPRs can be used with other gene editing tools, such as the GeneArt Genomic Detection Cleavage Kit, providing a complete solution for design of synthetic genes, circuits and detection.
