Factors such as increasing demand for therapeutic antibodies, public-private investment in pharmaceutical & life science research, and rising concern for food safety will drive the chromatography resin market.New York, March 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Chromatography Resin Market by Type, Technique, Application, Region - Global Forecast to 2025" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05830800/?utm_source=GNW The major restraint for the market will be lack of adequate skilled professionals and presence of alternative technologies to chromatography. However, rise in CROs and CMOs in the pharmaceutical industry, increasing demand for biosimilar, and growing demand for disposable pre-packed columns will act as an opportunity for the market.Natural polymer is the largest type for chromatography resin market in 2019Natural polymer used in chromatography techniques is extracted from living cells such as plant and bacteria cells.Agarose, cellulose, and dextran are the natural polymers that are most commonly used as resins in chromatography applications.Chitosan is also used as a resin in a few ion chromatography applications.Most of these natural polymeric resins are polysaccharides.The major advantage of these natural polymers is their hydrophilic nature, as they have a large number of hydroxyl groups in their structure.These provide functional sites for the coupling of suitable ligands.Natural polymeric resins have lower mechanical stability than synthetic resins. In analytical experiments where resins are exposed to extreme conditions of pressure and pH, synthetic polymer is more suitable than natural polymer. However, on the industrial scale, where the conditions are moderate, these natural polymers are further processed to achieve a greater degree of cross-linkage, thereby achieving reasonable mechanical strength. Wide application of natural polymer in the industrial-scale purification of biomolecules results in higher consumption of these resins than synthetic polymer.Affinity is estimated to be the largest technique in chromatography resin market between 2020 and 2025.Affinity chromatography offers high selectivity, resolution, and capacity in most protein purification schemes.It has the advantage of utilizing a protein’s biological structure or function for purification.As a result, purifications that would otherwise be time-consuming and complicated can often be easily achieved with affinity chromatography.The major applications of affinity chromatography include separation of a mixture of compounds, removal of impurities in the purification process, enzyme assays, detection of substrates, investigation of binding sites of enzymes, in vitro antigen-antibody reactions, and detection of single nucleotide polymorphisms and mutations in nucleic acids.The high demand for protein A resins and IMAC resins in affinity chromatography technique is expected to drive the chromatography resin market.Pharmaceutical & biotechnology application is projected to account for the largest share of the chromatography resin market between 2020 and 2025.Increasing R&D for therapeutic areas, such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, and immunodeficiency disorders, technological innovations in biotechnology research, increasing focus of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies on extending their product pipeline, rising number of drug discovery and clinical trial projects, and patent expiry of blockbuster drugs and biomolecules are some of the key factors driving the growth of this segment. Additionally, the availability of government and corporate funding for biotechnology and pharmaceutical research, growth of the pharmaceutical industry, and presence of stringent regulatory guidelines for drug development and safety are the other key factors driving the growth of this segment.North America is expected to be the largest chromatography resin market during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume.North America accounts for the largest share of the overall chromatography resin market in terms of both volume and value.A strong therapeutic monoclonal antibody market in North America is the key driver for resin sale in this segment.Modern chromatographic techniques are also increasingly used in food analytics and other diagnostic purposes in the US as well as in Canada.The key suppliers in the region include Bio-Rad (US), Thermo Fisher (US), and Repligen (US).Almost all the key pharmaceutical companies have their research centers in North America.The region has been leading the way in the R&D of biopharmaceuticals.The North American chromatography resin market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for monoclonal antibodies, rising R&D expenditure by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and the presence of major players in the region.The North American region has a diverse and well-established R&D infrastructure.

WATERFORD, Pa. — Jill Biden sees a teachable moment in the depths of the coronavirus pandemic. The first lady sat in a socially distanced circle in the library at Fort LeBoeuf Middle School in Pennsylvania, listening and taking notes as parents expressed relief that the school had reopened and their kids were back in the classroom. One mother talked about the “bumpy patches” of online learning and said reopening “has been so to the T” that she doesn't worry about her son and daughter. Another mom said the district included parent input and she was comfortable her children were in a “safe environment.” A teacher herself, Biden praised the small circle of parents, teachers and administrators for working together to help reopen Fort LeBoeuf. And she repeated a message she had delivered earlier that day while visiting Benjamin Franklin Elementary School in Meriden, Connecticut. “We've been through really tough, hard times, but I think the one good thing about educators that I love — and that includes the cafeteria workers, the bus drivers, the teachers, everyone involved — is we’ve all learned from this," Biden said of the pandemic and its emotional, social and human toll. “We’re all going to take everything that we’ve learned and are going to turn it into opportunity to make things better for students as we move forward," she said. ___ The first lady seems intent on turning every aspect of her new job into an opportunity, for that matter, especially anything related to her triple passions for education, fighting cancer and supporting military families. A few days after she became first lady, Biden told governors' spouses during a virtual meeting at the White House that her new platform is “one that I would never let go to waste.” She's long been focused on education, having taught at a high school, a psychiatric hospital and community colleges for more than three decades. She's still teaching, virtually from the White House, and pining for the day she can go back to the classroom. Finding a cure for cancer also motivates her and President Joe Biden. The couple lost son Beau to brain cancer in 2015 at age 46. Her parents died of cancer, and one of her sisters had a stem cell transplant. Doctors also gave the dreaded breast cancer diagnosis to four of her girlfriends within a one-year period in the 1990s. The Bidens also advocate for service members and their families, an appreciation that stems from Beau Biden's service in the Delaware Army National Guard, including a deployment to Iraq. Jill Biden intends to revive a military family support program that she led with former first lady Michelle Obama when Biden's husband was President Barack Obama's vice-president. Jill Biden quickly set her agenda as first lady by highlighting all three of her longtime causes in her first weeks. She has been busy with virtual meetings, teaching her community college English class, official travel, running errands in the Washington area and moving the family’s dogs into the White House. Even the light blue scrunchie she wore in her hair has gone viral. Biden, known for springing surprises and practical jokes, also is intent on injecting some levity into things as her husband faces daunting crises: She woke him up to show him giant hearts she had displayed on the White House front lawn for Valentine's Day. “She’s off to a fast start, and I think a very solid one,” said Myra Gutin, author of “The President’s Partner: The First Lady in the Twentieth Century.” ___ The first lady is also keeping a robust travel schedule despite the pandemic. Her first official outing was to a non-profit community health centre in Washington to highlight services for cancer patients. From there, she made a detour to personally deliver chocolate chip cookies to National Guard troops stationed at the U.S. Capitol. She recently travelled to Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond to tour its Massey Cancer Center, where researchers study the socioeconomic and cultural factors that contribute to disparities in cancer outcomes. In the coming days, Biden plans to visit U.S. military installations in Washington state and California and hear from families about their needs. Biden also met virtually with the leaders of teachers’ unions, the spouses of defence officials and governors, military kids and their teachers, and government cancer researchers, among others. She sent prerecorded remarks to several conferences, and taped a public service commercial with Champ and Major, the family German shepherds, urging people to wear face masks. Tammy Vigil, author of “Melania & Michelle: First Ladies in a New Era,” said Biden's experience as the spouse of a longtime U.S. senator and vice-president was an asset that helped her quickly put together a staff. She also didn't need time to figure out the issues she wanted to focus on. ___ There apparently are no incognito errand runs for Jill Biden. Unlike some recent first ladies who tried to hide their identities on unofficial outings in the Washington area, as Michelle Obama once did on a shopping run to Target, Jill Biden goes out as herself. Stephen Bota said he knew a VIP visit was in the offing when plainclothes U.S. Secret Service agents showed up unannounced at his DuPont Circle newsstand in late January, but they left him to guess about who it would be. Hours later, Jill Biden walked through the door. “I was kind of, ’Oh my God, it’s the first lady,” Bota, an immigrant from Kenya who owns The Newsroom, recalled in an interview. He and his employees — just his wife and sister-in-law — are featured in a photo with the first lady now on display in the store. “I told her that we are so grateful that she came to see us,” Bota said. Biden also bought coffee at Brewer's Cafe in Richmond and confections at The Sweet Lobby on Capitol Hill, both of them Black-owned. The president, for his part, stopped his motorcade after church one Sunday for son Hunter Biden to pick up a bagel order. “She seems more inviting,” Vigil said, noting that everyone can relate to running errands. With the purchases, the Bidens appear to be encouraging support for small businesses, which generate most of the jobs in the U.S. but are struggling to survive the pandemic. They also seem to be signalling that they will be participants in city life. Former President Donald Trump went only to his hotel near the White House or his golf club in northern Virginia. For dinner in a city with a robust restaurant scene, he opted to dine exclusively at the hotel restaurant. His wife, Melania Trump, never made a show of outings in the Washington area in an unofficial capacity. ___ After Jill Biden released a photo of herself at the counter of The Sweet Lobby, the boutique bakery wasn't the only thing that became an instant hit. The powder blue scrunchie holding up the first lady's hair went viral. Biden said she had no idea until daughter Ashley called to tell her. “I said, ‘What scrunchie?’ I didn't know what she was talking about,” the first lady told talk-show host Kelly Clarkson during an interview at the White House. “I still don't understand it.” Darlene Superville, The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — The fate of a former Minneapolis police officer who pressed his knee into George Floyd’s neck as the Black man said he couldn’t breathe will be decided by 12 Hennepin County residents picked after extensive grilling about their views on police and the justice system. Jury selection begins Monday in the trial of Derek Chauvin, who is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in Floyd’s death. Picking a jury is expected to take at least three weeks, as prosecutors and defence attorneys try to weed out people who may be biased against them. “You don’t want jurors who are completely blank slates, because that would mean they’re not in tune at all with the world,” Susan Gaertner, a former prosecutor, said. “But what you want is jurors who can set aside opinions that have formed prior to walking into the courtroom and give both sides a fair hearing.” Floyd was declared dead May 25 after Chauvin, who is white, pressed his knee against Floyd’s neck for about nine minutes, holding his position even after Floyd went limp as he was handcuffed and lying on his stomach. Floyd’s death sparked sometimes violent protests in Minneapolis and beyond, and led to a nationwide reckoning on race. Chauvin and three other officers were fired; the others face an August trial on aiding and abetting charges. Chauvin’s attorney, Eric Nelson, argued that pretrial publicity of the case and the subsequent violent unrest in Minneapolis would make it impossible to find an impartial jury in Hennepin County. But Judge Peter Cahill said last year that moving the trial probably wouldn't cure the problem of a potentially tainted jury pool because “no corner of the State of Minnesota” has been shielded from pretrial publicity. The potential jurors — who must be at least 18, U.S. citizens and residents of Hennepin County — were sent questionnaires to determine how much they have heard about the case and whether they’ve formed any opinions. Besides biographical and demographic information, jurors were asked about prior contacts with police, whether they have protested against police brutality and whether they believe the justice system is fair. Some of the questions get specific, such as how often a potential juror has watched the bystander video of Floyd’s arrest, or whether they carried a sign at a protest and what that sign said. Mike Brandt, a local defence attorney, said prosecutors will likely seek out jurors who have favourable opinions on the Black Lives Matter movement or might have more outrage over Floyd’s death, while Chauvin’s attorneys would likely favour jurors who support the police. Unlike typical jury selection proceedings, this jury pool will be questioned one by one instead of in a group. The judge, defence attorney and prosecutors will all get to ask questions. The defence can object to up to 15 potential jurors without giving a reason; prosecutors can block up to nine with no reason given. The other side can object to these so-called peremptory challenges if they believe the sole reason for disqualifying a juror is race or gender. Both sides can also argue to dismiss an unlimited number of jurors “for cause,” meaning they must provide a reason why they believe that juror shouldn’t serve. Those situations can get into some detailed machinations, Brandt said, and it’s up to the judge to decide whether a juror stays or goes. “Sometimes there is some tortured questioning,” Brandt said. He said that even if a juror says they have had a negative interaction with the police, or a negative opinion about Black Lives Matter, the key will be trying to find out whether they can put those past experiences or opinions aside and be fair. “We all walk into these with biases. The question is, can you put those biases aside and be fair in this case,” he said. Jury selection will end after 14 people are picked – 12 jurors who will deliberate the case and two alternates who won’t be part of deliberations unless needed. The jurors will be escorted to the courthouse daily and sequestered during deliberations. Their names will be kept confidential until further order of the court. The number of seats in the courtroom has been limited to maintain social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and seats for jurors have been spaced out. Like others in the courtroom, jurors will be required to wear masks. The earliest opening statements will begin is March 29. ___ Find AP’s full coverage of the death of George Floyd: https://apnews.com/hub/death-of-george-floyd Amy Forliti, The Associated Press
