New Biotage® SNAP ULTRA C18 Cartridges - High Performance Reversed Phase Flash Purification

Biotage announces the launch of Biotage® SNAP ULTRA C18 - a range of high performance, reversed phase flash purification cartridges and samplets.

Uppsala, Sweden (November 11, 2014) -- Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical, medicinal and peptide chemistry, announces the launch of Biotage® SNAP ULTRA C18 - a range of high performance, reversed phase flash purification cartridges and samplets.

Biotage® SNAP ULTRA C18 reversed phase cartridges are optimized for use with Biotage ACI™ and Isolera™ flash systems and are available in 12 g, 30 g, 60 g, 120 g, 400 g, 950 g and 1850 g cartridge sizes. They enable chemists to confidently load 2-3% weight percentage of samples onto reversed phase columns, a marked improvement when compared to the currently typical 0.5 - 1% loads. The time taken for purification and solvent usage can therefore be reduced by 50% or a smaller cartridge can be used for the same purification, often with improved purification results.

The new reversed phase cartridges are packed with the new, Biotage® HP-Sphere C18 25 micron spherical silica particles that give a boost to resolution with higher purity peaks over standard reversed phase cartridges. The silica is chemically neutral with no adverse interactions, ensuring higher yields and better recoveries; a wide diversity of purifications are possible, including the use of both acidic or basic modifiers.

"It is no longer enough for suppliers to arbitrarily work on single aspects of the workflow and purification - today a more holistic approach is required, one that involves a combination of factors; with this product range we have further augmented the Biotage ACI™ and Isolera™ flash systems and have created a superior product for purification" says Dr. Sunil Rana, Global Product Manager, Biotage.

Output Factory Server for Adobe InDesign Now Supports Mac OS X Yosemite

Zevrix Solutions announces Output Factory Server 1.0.21, a compatibility update to its output workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Output Factory Server automates printing and exporting from InDesign by processing files from hot folders. The software offloads output tasks to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process. The new version makes Output Factory Server compatible with the recently released Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

Toronto (ON), Canada (November 11, 2014) -- Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 1.0.21, a compatibility update to its solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Developed originally for a major magazine publisher in the United States to free up their operator computers from outputting InDesign files, the software automates InDesign workflow by processing files from watched hot folders.

The new version makes Output Factory Server compatible with the recently released Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. A number of user interface elements were updated to display properly across multiple OS X versions.

"Output Factory Server is an extremely useful utility for a busy production facility or advertising agency", writes David Creamer in Layers magazine, "It can save lots of time - which equates to money."

Under Output Factory Server workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply copy InDesign jobs to hot folders that reside on a network. Users can create hot folders for any type of output - for example hi-res PDF, large format printing, EPUB files and so on. Output Factory Server offers the following key features:

-Support for print, PDF, PostScript, EPS, JPEG, Flash, EPUB and other formats
-Export InDesign files as single pages
-Layer versioning export layer combinations as single files
-Variable output file names
-Preflight files before output
-Automatic e-mail notifications on processing stages and errors
