Merck Launches First All-in-One Genetic Stability Assay to Accelerate Biosafety Testing

Proprietary Aptegra™ platform reduces five assays to one Results in 66% faster testing time and significantly lower cost for clients compared to traditional methods Only platform that meets all regulatory requirements to establish CHO genetic stability with a single test SINGAPORE - Media OutReach Newswire - 17 April 2024 - Merck, a leading science and technology company, has launched the first all-in-one, validated genetic stability assay of its kind. The Aptegra™ CHO genetic stability assay leverages whole genome sequencing and bioinformatics to significantly accelerate biosafety testing for clients and therefore, their move into commercial production. "Driving innovation in biosafety testing is essential to bringing new therapies to patients faster," said Benjamin Hein, Head of Life Science Services, Life Science business of Merck. "CHO genetic stability testing has remained relatively unchanged for many years. The Aptegra™ platform transforms biosafety testing with a digital solution using next-generation sequencing." A scientist preparing samples in the next-generation sequencing laboratory at Merck’s/MilliporeSigma’s Rockville, Maryland, USA site. Currently, FDA guidance requires biotech companies to use multiple assays to address genetic stability requirements. This traditional package of assays is costly, time-consuming, and often results in data that need additional interpretation and support. The Aptegra™ platform addresses these pain points by replacing five different assays and four different technologies with one assay utilizing the next-generation sequencing technology platform. This approach reduces testing time by 66 percent and reduces costs by 43 percent compared to traditional methods. The platform meets all regulatory requirements for genetic stability assurance, including copy number assessment. Merck has made significant investments over the last five years to expand its biosafety testing capabilities for clients across the globe. The company's global biosafety testing network includes sites in Shanghai, China; Singapore; Stirling and Glasgow, UK; and Rockville, MD, USA. The Aptegra™ digital platform adds to a transformative portfolio of digital technologies developed by Merck. In December, Merck launched AIDDISON™, an AI-powered platform that integrates generative design with predictive synthesis planning, allowing rapid identification of promising candidates and reducing risk of late-stage failures. Additionally, Merck offers a first of its kind Bio4C® Software Suite, which combines data analytics and visualization, automation, and control software for GMP manufacturing.

Forum set to deepen BRI ties and promote infrastructure

BEIJING, April 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- A news report from chinadaily.com.cn: The Digital Silk Road Development Forum of the World Internet Conference aims to build a platform for exchanges and cooperation among countries and regions involved in the Belt and Road Initiative, promote the construction of network infrastructure, reduce the digital divide and create a better digital future, according to a senior WIC official. "It is the first time that the WIC is holding a thematic forum centered on the Digital Silk Road, which combines the development of the digital economy with the Belt and Road Initiative," said Ren Xianliang, secretary-general of the World Internet Conference. By advancing the construction of the Digital Silk Road, Ren said China has deepened exchanges and cooperation with BRI economies in fields including digital infrastructure, digital technologies and digital market, promoted the digital transformation of related countries and regions, effectively narrowed the digital divide, and shared digital achievements. Themed "Connectivity and Shared Prosperity", the WIC Digital Silk Road Development Forum on Tuesday in Xi'an, Shaanxi province, will focus on three topics — "Digital Connectivity and Cooperation in Building the Silk Road", "Silk Road E-commerce International Cooperation" and "Digital Villages and Sustainable Development". Organizations and enterprises from nearly 50 countries and regions, including the Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA), the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, Intel, SAP, Nokia, Micron, ZTE and Alibaba have confirmed their participation in the forum. The WIC held a member representative symposium on Monday. Cross-border e-commerce training classes and seminars on assessing the competitiveness of cross-border e-commerce will be launched to cultivate the relevant talent for BRI economies and provide practical experience for the innovative development of the cross-bolster e-commerce industry, Ren said. China has made significant progress in the construction of the Digital Silk Road. By end-2022, China had signed memorandums of understanding on building the Digital Silk Road with 17 countries, and on e-commerce cooperation with 30 countries, according to a white paper released by China's State Council Information Office. Noting that the Silk Road e-commerce connects BRI economies and promotes economic development, Ren said the Digital Silk Road cross-border e-commerce workshop, which will officially kick off on Wednesday, is conducive to deepening exchanges and cooperation among China and other BRI economies, and building an exchange and mutual learning platform about the cross-border e-commerce industry. Professionals and experts from the International Trade Center, the E-Commerce Business Alliance Expert Committee of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, comprehensive pilot zones for cross-border e-commerce, universities and cross-border e-commerce enterprises will be invited to discuss the new opportunities, challenges and the best practical experience in the fast-developing sector during the workshop, Ren said. He added that the forum is also expected to bolster the facilitation of cross-border e-commerce, promote data flows and sharing, as well as allow more countries and regions to share new development opportunities brought about by digital technologies. China's cross-border e-commerce sector has become an important driving force for bolstering development of the nation's foreign trade, experts said. Data from the General Administration of Customs showed that, based on preliminary calculations, the import and export scale of the country's cross-border e-commerce transactions reached 577.6 billion yuan ($79.8 billion) in the first quarter of this year, up 9.6 percent year-on-year.

New MPP tracker reveals heavy industry transition has started but needs to accelerate sevenfold to meet 2030 climate targets

Tracker maps announcements, investment decisions and operations of net-zero-aligned projects across critical industrial sectors globally. The pipeline is growing, but rapid acceleration is needed as almost 600 decarbonised plants must break ground in the coming years to meet 2030 net-zero targets. MPP urges collective action by governments, companies, and financial institutions to unlock investment barriers and fast-track progress. LONDON, April 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Mission Possible Partnership (MPP) launches its Global Project Tracker today, shedding new light on the state of transition in seven heavy industry and transport sectors, which account for 30% of global carbon emissions. It reveals a growing pipeline of net-zero-aligned projects across the 'harder-to-abate' sectors. However, it warns that rapid acceleration is needed to bring almost 600 decarbonised plants under construction in the coming years to meet deployment goals for a 1.5oC aligned trajectory. Industrial decarbonisation has started but needs to accelerate to meet 2030 targets. The Tracker shows that 68 commercial-scale net-zero-aligned plants are currently operational, and 42 are at Final Investment Decision (FID). More than 700 must be up and running by 2030, according to MPP's industry-backed milestones for decarbonising key sectors in line with the Paris-aligned ambition. To meet these deadlines, FID must be reached within three years to enable construction this decade. Bridging the current gap and scaling near-zero solutions adequately requires an almost seven-fold increase in the number of plants that have achieved FID to date. The encouraging news is that companies have issued a wave of project announcements in the past 12 months, indicating growing industry ambition and a shift towards more favourable conditions emerging in some locations. Plans to build 473 commercial-scale decarbonisation plants are identified on the Tracker, which, if brought to FID, would reduce the gap by 80%. However, MPP analysis indicates that many projects struggle to get from announcement to FID, meaning the current pace of progress is too slow. Various economic and policy barriers can be identified that stall projects. 595 plants must be brought to FID across aluminium, cement, chemicals, steel, aviation, and shipping within three years to meet 2030 deployment goals. The trucking target measures zero-emission trucks on the road, and millions more need to be operational this decade. MPP's Tracker uses aggregated data to chart investment progress into net-zero-aligned projects, with quarterly updates. It is the first publicly available tool combining seven sectors and visually depicting the pipeline, indicating a project's status ranging from announced to FID and operational. Today's flagship projects prove that technologies are maturing, and announced projects show the opportunity to create critical mass and realise new markets for clean industrial products. However, economic and policy barriers must rapidly be tackled to create widespread bankability for announced projects whilst encouraging the development of many more. Evidence is emerging on the interventions that can accelerate the pipeline. Tracker analysis shows key levers that can inspire further action: Government policies can create demand and bridge the green premium. Support for clean technology deployment can de-risk investment. Co-location of projects and enabling infrastructure brings synergies. Dick Benschop, Interim Chief Executive Officer of the Mission Possible Partnership, said: "We have a new level of insight into the decarbonisation trajectory for heavy industry and transport – and the rising ambition of industry is clear. But with the planet's future hanging in the balance, there is no hiding from the challenges ahead. We need to rapidly unlock the barriers that can transform plans into plants. MPP is committed to addressing the collective action needed, and we urge all stakeholders to contribute."  Christiana Figueres, Co-Founder, Global Optimism: "Realising the Paris Agreement means the so-called 'hard-to-abate' sectors 'have-to-abate'. MPP's Global Project Tracker demonstrates that they already can and - in many cases - 'want-to-abate'. Exponential transformation is now within reach across heavy industry, shipping, aviation and trucking. But, while the MPP project pipeline provides a clear pathway for progress, success is not inevitable. Policymakers and investors must show courageous leadership at this crucial crossroads and make decisions that enable the have-to-abate sectors to move at the pace and scale required." tracker.missionpossiblepartnership.org Explore the map Further insights Learn more about Mission Possible Partnership

Students from JA Greece Win 2024 De La Vega Global Entrepreneurship Award

BOSTON, April 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ --Founded in 2021 by tech-legend Ralph de la Vega, former President and CEO of AT&T Mobile and Business Solutions, the De La Vega Global Entrepreneurship Award is the highest global award for the JA Company Program. The winning JA Company of the Year student teams from JA's six regions—JA Africa, JA Americas, JA Asia Pacific, JA Europe, INJAZ Al-Arab/JA MENA, and Junior Achievement USA—automatically become finalists. The JA Company Program is the world's oldest hands-on entrepreneurial experience, helping students develop real companies that create products or services to meet a specific need; build, market, and deliver products; and earn real profits. Student companies compete at the local level, and some move on to national and regional competitions. Until this award was established, the highest prize that a JA student company could earn was the coveted first place at one of JA's six regional competitions. The 2024 De La Vega Global Entrepreneurship Award competition included teams from JA Ghana (AID Electronics), JA Argentina (MANIK), Prestasi Junior Indonesia (SIEVASCO), JA Greece (Isometricks), INJAZ Oman (Warif), and JA Southeastern Pennsylvania (Youthful Thinkers). Today, award sponsor Ralph de la Vega announced the 2024 winner: Isometricks (JA Greece), students at Experimental Senior High School of the University of Macedonia and winners of the 2023 JA Europe Gen-E Company of the Year competition. The team won US$15,000 cash prize for its product Wizzle, a 3D-printed puzzle game with medical and educational applications. The five other JA student companies also won US$5,000 each, courtesy of the de la Vega Family Foundation. To Isometricks, playing is a serious matter. The company's product, Wizzle—a combination of the words "wizard" and "puzzle"—is an open-ended game of thought and creativity with hidden math and educational and medical applications. This pioneering collection of colorful tiles is designed according to mathematical rules (each puzzle is designed by members of the Experimental High School Math Club) and assembled with mosaic logic, providing endless possibilities for creativity. As a non-digital, hands-on learning experience, Wizzle is a valuable educational tool for teachers and students, enabling inclusive learning experiences for those with dyslexia and for refugee students who struggle with language. Additionally, Wizzle is a promising non-pharmaceutical intervention suitable for people of all ages with mild cognitive disabilities. Mr. De La Vega commented on the contributions all six finalists are making to the world: "The power of entrepreneurship is that it enables you to achieve anything you want to achieve. There is strife in the world. There's hunger in the world. There's war in the world. But you bring messages of hope, of inspiration, of overcoming adversities, of partnering, of working with each other." JA Worldwide CEO Asheesh Advani agreed. "Being an entrepreneur in your teenage years is transformational, teaching essential skills early in life. And, as Team Isometricks and all the student finalists demonstrated, JA entrepreneurs can create value for society as well as turning a profit." About JA WorldwideAs one of the world's largest and most-impactful youth-serving NGOs, JA Worldwide delivers hands on, immersive learning in entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial health. Reaching more than 17 million young people each year through over 675,000 teachers and business volunteers, JA Worldwide is one of few organizations with the scale, experience, and passion to build a boundless future for the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders.
