SERUMWERK BERNBURG

Established in 1954, Serumwerk Bernburg AG is a medium-sized pharmaceutical company with more than 60 years tradition in the development and production of medicinal products, medical devices and active pharmaceutical ingredients. The company is based in Bernburg, Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany.

ABOUT THE SUPPLIER

Serumwerk Bernburg was founded in 1954 and has been operating as a public limited company since 1992. Over the past decades, they have established themselves as a globally recognised producer and supplier of human and veterinary medicine. 

Together with their subsidiaries, they cover a broad portfolio of pharmaceutical products in different dosage forms. A special focus of Serumwerk Bernburg AG is on intravenous iron preparations, especially for the treatment of anaemia in suckling piglets. They are one of the two leading companies in this field worldwide. In human medicine, they are also developing a highly innovative intravenous iron preparation, which they expect will also reach a top position worldwide.

Besides, Serumwerk Bernburg also provides a series of density gradient media and tools which are for research use only. They include Lymphoprep, Lymphoprep Tube, OptiPrep, Polymorphprep, Nycodenz and Polysucrose 400.

PRODUCT CATEGORIES

DENSITY GRADIENT MEDIA

 

Much of modern cell and molecular biology relies on the isolation of pure, functionally intact populations of cells, subcellular organelles, and macromolecules in high yield. Furthermore, both research and clinical applications provide an impetus for the development of improved separation technology.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Lymphoprep

Isolation of human mononuclear cells. Lymphoprep is manufactured, packed and released by Serumwerk, a GMP-compliant and ISO 13485 certified manufacturer. It can be used for the preparation of pure lymphocyte suspensions for tissue typing, anti lymphocyte sera and immunological research. For research use only.

Lymphoprep tube

Lymphoprep Tube is a sterile tube in which the Lymphoprep is contained below a plastic filter disc. This allows diluted blood to be poured simply and directly into the tube, the disc preventing any mixing with the separation medium. It can be used for the preparation of pure lymphocyte suspensions for tissue typing, anti-lymphocyte sera and immunological research. Lymphoprep is manufactured, packed and released by Serumwerk, a GMP-compliant and ISO 13485-certified manufacturer. For research use only.

OptiPrep

OptiPrep is a sterile and endotoxin-tested solution of 60 % iodixanol in water with a density of 1.320 g/ml. Iodixanol was developed as an X-ray contrast medium and has therefore been subjected to rigorous clinical testing. It is non-ionic, non-toxic to cells and metabolically inert. Iodixanol solutions can be made isoosmotic at all useful densities, this solutions have low viscosity and osmolality. OptiPrep is manufactured, packed and released by Serumwerk, a GMP-compliant and ISO 13485-certified manufacturer. For research use only.

Applications include the isolation of mammalian and non-mammalian cells, subcellular organelles, plasma membranes and domains, membrane vesicles and cytosol, organelles from non-mammalian sources, viruses, plasma lipoproteins, proteins and protein complexes, plasmid DNA, ribonucleoproteins, as well as analysis of membrane trafficking and cell signalling, endocytosis and exocytosis.

Polymorphprep

Polymorphprep is a ready-made, sterile and endotoxin-tested solution for the isolation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) from whole undiluted human blood. For research use only.

Nycodenz

Nycodenz is a non-ionic triiodinated derivative of benzoic acid with three aliphatic hydrophilic side chains. Nycodenz is the trademark name for iohexol, whose systematic name is 5- (N-2, 3-dihydroxypropylacetamido)-2, 4, 6-tri-iodo-N, N’-bis (2, 3 dihydroxypropyl) isophthalamide. Applications include the isolation of mammalian and non-mammalian cells, subcellular organelles, organelles from non-mammalian sources, subcellular membranes, protein and protein complexes, ribonucleoproteins and viruses. For research use only.
