Sumitomo SHI FW fluidized bed technology – upscaling thermochemical energy storage to a commercial level1.12.2020 17:47:00 CET | Press release
One of the largest obstacles in using renewable energy efficiently is the possibility to store energy on a large scale. SaltX Technology AB has partnered with Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) to solve this in terms of heat energy. "The storage solution is like a "salt battery". It is based on a basic chemical process with a very common material, calcium oxide produced from limestone, with enhanced properties by our nanocoating process", explains Carl-Johan Linér, CEO of SaltX. Simplified, when calcium oxide reacts with water, it turns into calcium hydroxide and releases heat. Respectively, when calcium hydroxide is dried, it absorbs heat. SFW has designed a fluidized bed pilot reactor, which serves as the point of discharge, where the salt releases the heat. The new 100 kW reactor in SaltX's new testing installation in Sweden, near Stockholm, combines the performance of SaltX's patented nanocoated salt with SFW's fluidized bed technology. "SFW's technology has huge potential to take the salt batt
PierianDx Announces Expanded Partnership with Illumina to Support Cancer Genomic Reporting in Global Markets1.12.2020 17:00:00 CET | Press release
PierianDx, the leading clinical genomics informatics company, today announced an expanded partnership with Illumina to enable PierianDx genomic reporting solutions for use with AmpliSeq™ for Illumina® Focus Panel, AmpliSeq™ for Illumina® Myeloid Panel and the TruSight™ Hereditary Cancer Panel. Adding these panels expands the existing relationship between Illumina and PierianDx, which currently covers use of the PierianDx platform to support genomic reporting in key global markets for the TruSight Oncology 500 portfolio. Performing a comprehensive NGS test and delivering an accompanying genomic report were once only accomplished via a send-out test to a commercial lab. However, in performing tests as send-outs, healthcare organizations relinquish control over samples, turnaround time, and quality. The PierianDx platform enables healthcare organizations to accelerate their precision medicine programs by empowering them to create accurate, timely, and comprehensive clinical genomic report

Rhizen Pharmaceuticals, a clinical-stage oncology-focussed biopharmaceutical company, today announced the approval of its Investigational New Drug (IND) application by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to study its oral DHODH inhibitor for SARS-CoV-2 infection.
