Do you spin tubes as well as plates in your laboratory? Are you tired of switching between different rotors or rotor buckets?
Then it’s time to look forward to the new refrigerated Centrifuge 5920 R. It offers exceptionally high capacity and, thanks to practical universal swing-bucket rotors, a considerable gain in convenience (p. 4–5).
Do you work with cell culture? Our new Cell Handling online portal provides you bundled expert knowledge on the topics of contamination, identity, and reproducibility – researched in depth by the Eppendorf cell experts.
Enjoy reading these and more articles as well as product news and detailed Application Notes in the new edition of Eppendorf BioNews!

Eppendorf and the journal Science are now accepting applications for the 2017 Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology.
The annual international Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology is awarded to young scientists for their outstanding contributions to neurobiological research based on methods of molecular and cell biology. Researchers who are not older than 35 years are invited to apply by June 15, 2017. The winner and finalists are selected by a committee of independent scientists, chaired by Science’s Senior Editor, Dr. Peter Stern. The award includes a prize money of US$25,000 for the winner.
The 2016 prize was won by the Israeli-American scientist Gilad Evrony, M.D., Ph.D. from Mount Sinai Hospital (New York, USA) for his work on developing technologies to sequence and analyze the genomes of single cells from the human brain. Gilad Evrony’s research has revealed a diversity of mutations in neuronal genomes indicating that every neuron in the brain carries a unique fingerprint of somatic mutations. Such mutations can cause focal brain malformations and may have a role in other unsolved neurologic diseases. The technology also allows, for the first time, reconstruction of develop-mental lineage trees in the human brain to study how cells proliferate and migrate to build the brain.

Information and entertainment on life in the laboratory. New issues twice a year.
The new Eppendorf LifeScienceStyle Magazine “Off the Bench” will be published twice a year with a varied mix of informative and entertaining topics that focus on life in the laboratory.
This new magazine joins BioNews, the science- and application-oriented magazine from Eppendorf that has been published twice yearly since 1993. “Off the Bench”, in contrast, will focus on the topic of laboratory lifestyles. In addition to interviews with personalities from science and research, the magazine offers readers a wealth of tips, information and links – such as visitor information on the city in which the next big life science trade fair will take place.
“We want to use ‘Off the Bench’ to offer readers something new – a view beyond the horizon with well-researched, entertaining articles. In the process, our goal is to create further added value for our customers and make it possible to experience our claim of being the expert and advisor in the life sciences,” says Dr. Oliver Franz, Vice President Branding and Group Communication of Eppendorf AG.
Among other things, the first issue of “Off the Bench” will acquaint readers with the work of the cell biologist Tim Gilberger and his battle against malaria. In addition, we join chef J. Kenji López-Alt in his kitchen as he creates dishes with scientific precision and sheds new light on a number of long-held cooking myths.
You can order “Off the Bench” free of charge from firstname.lastname@example.org or subscribe to it online at corporate.eppendorf.com/en/news-media/newsletter-magazines. The magazine’s contents are also available on the Web at www.eppendorf.com/OTB.

Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators 2017: Call for entries!
Until 15 January 2017, young researchers not older than 35 years with an advanced degree who are performing biomedical research in Europe are invited to apply for the Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators.
Eppendorf BioBLU® 0.3f and 1f single-use fermentors convince in DECHEMA® kLa performance study.
The performance of the BioBLU® 0.3f and 1f Single-Use Vessels is highlighted in an external report, which was recently published by the DECHEMA Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie e.V. (Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology).
A sufficient supply of oxygen is crucial for aerobic bioprocesses. To help the users to objectively compare the performance of bioreactors in terms of oxygen transfer, the DECHEMA expert group on “Single-Use technology in biopharmaceutical manufacturing” developed a standard operating procedure for measurement of the volumetric mass transfer coefficient (kLa), and using this protocol, different manufacturers experimentally determined the kLa values of their single-use fermentors. With kLa values > 500 h-1 the Eppendorf BioBLU® 0.3f and 1f Single-Use Vessels outperformed the other lab-scale fermentors tested.
Apply with your research work in neurobiology until June 15, 2016
Eppendorf and the “Science” journal are now accepting applications for the 2016 Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology. This annual international research prize of US$25,000 is awarded to young scientists for their outstanding contributions to neurobiology research based on methods of molecular and cell biology.

In 2015, Japanese scientist Shigeki Watanabe, Ph.D. from John Hopkins University (Baltimore, USA), has won the prestigious international award. He has developed two novel techniques in electron microscopy that allow for the visualization of protein and membrane dynamics at synapses with millisecond temporal resolution.
You can find an interview with Shigeki Watanabe and more details about the Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology 2016 at www.eppendorf.com/prize.
