Manufacturing Solutions Inc unveils new 92,000-square-foot facility

first_imgManufacturing Solutions Inc,More than 100 people came out on a rainy night last week to attend the Open House at Manufacturing Solutions Inc. The event was the official unveiling of the company’s new 92,000 square foot facility. The move into the larger facility accommodates both growth that the company has seen in the past year and anticipated new business.  According to Hirchak, the company is poised for double-digit growth in the next fiscal year.In his remarks at the event, Garret Hirchak, MSI founder and CEO, was quick to credit his employees and clients for working together toward the vision of keeping jobs and superior manufacturing right here in Vermont.  ‘While many companies are downsizing and moving manufacturing over seas to cut costs, our customers are working with us to find ways to keep that work in the U.S.  That helps the economy of Vermont and of the country.’ MSI employs the ‘Lean Manufacturing’ philosophy and Hirchak believes that’s just part of the reason that MSI is able to be cost-competitive.  ‘Because we can move our workforce between various client projects, MSI absorbs a client’s labor costs as they relate to the ebbs and flows of the production cycle,’ continued Hirchak.MSI offers businesses a wide range of manufacturing services from receiving and storage right through production, packaging and fulfillment. Concept 2 and Blodgett Ovens are just two of MSI’s clients. Manufacturing Solutions Inc. is located in Morrisville, Vermont. http://www.msivt.com(link is external). Source: Morrisville, VT (September 30, 2010) MSIlast_img read more

CCIT Sensors announces launch of singleuse metabolic monitoring system for continuous insitu

first_img Source:http://www.c-cit.ch Aug 22 2018C-CIT Sensors AG, today announced the release of its new sensor product allowing to monitor glucose and lactate in-situ and over weeks using one single-use sensor. The product will be exhibited at booth 1732 during the BioProcess International Conference & Exhibition in the Hynes Convention Center, from 4-7 September 2018 and is available for beta testing as of 4 September 2018.The measurement of critical process parameters (CPP) such as glucose and lactate is key to the understanding, development and control of bioprocesses of different kinds. Most labs today rely on frequent sampling and off-line analytics in order to follow the dynamics of a cell culture’s growth and metabolic status. These procedures are often manually conducted resulting in error-prone and risky data acquisition and processing. Many of them consume valuable and significant amounts of cell culture volume (and product) over the complete process time and require high upfront investment for instrumentation.Related StoriesPitt/UPMC researchers to lead large clinical trial to test red cell exchange in sickle cell diseaseALS mobility and survival could be improved by increasing glucoseNanoparticles used to deliver CRISPR gene editing tools into the cellCITSens MeMo is an electrochemical, enzyme-based sensor with the capacity to be used in defined cell culture media and blood.The continuous online/in-situ measurement of glucose and lactate as offered by CITSens MeMo adds value to cell line, media and process development projects within the cell bio research and biopharma community. The affordable sensor system is unique and delivers real-time information on a culture’s growth behavior and metabolic state at any given time. Data is being generated at a 20 second frequency and continuously sent to a database via wireless communication out of a closed incubator. Using a smartphone, a round the clock observation of your cell culture is here. Through straightforward OPC server connectivity, process control based on the online measured kinetics of glucose consumption and/or lactate generation has become reality.The benefits are evident: Easy and fast learning about a cell culture’s metabolic behavior under a given condition and straight forward process development at lowest investment and running cost, no risk of contamination, in-time information and automation, better science and engineering.The single-use sensor comes as a standard product (a reactor probe containing a PG13.5 thread or as a flow cell sensor) or can be custom-manufactured as a cap sensor fitting any of the widely used brands of different cell culture vessels (T-flask, shake flask, roller bottle).last_img read more
