The market for distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) in Southeast Asia is poised for expansion. U.S. Grain Council efforts in the region have significantly contributed to the favorable export climate.Exports to Vietnam, the fourth biggest market for DDGS, rose 11 percent between January and August 2011. According to Adel Yusupov, USGC director in Southeast Asia, construction of new feedmill plants in the Ha Duong and Bac Giang provinces will move forward later this year. Plans for expanding the Vietnamese swine and poultry industry using advanced breeding techniques also suggest that an increased demand for feed grain will follow. “The region is growing increasingly dependent on feed grain imports amid declining domestic crop production and burgeoning feed demand,” commented Yusupov.Increased DDGS exports to Malaysia and the Philippines have also been noteworthy, up 99 percent and 50 percent respectively from last year. Thailand’s imports are down 13 percent due to an abundant supply of soybean meal in the market.The Council-led DDGS Technical Service meetings in the Philippines and Thailand have educated local buyers on the nutritional value and use of DDGS as a low-cost feed ingredient. Numerous regional seminars have targeted key audiences, including major dairy farms and feed milling companies, to provide information on U.S. DDGS production quality. The Council has also been actively involved in trade policy issues. For example, the Council in collaboration with FAS-Bangkok worked to delay a regulation the Thai government planned to impose on protein levels in DDGS imports, thereby maintaining market access for U.S. producers.

Santa Clara, California. ProteinSimple today announced the launch of the iCE3, a next-generation platform for quality control monitoring of protein-based therapeutics. The iCE3 platform will be unveiled at the CE Pharm 2011 conference, October 9-13, 2011, at Amelia Island, FL. Manufacturers of protein-based therapeutics must monitor product purity closely. Imaged capillary electrophoresis (iCE) systems detect subtle impurities in protein formulations, and therefore have been adopted enthusiastically by major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies worldwide. The new iCE3 was designed with speed and sample throughput in mind, to help researchers address the flood of new protein biologics under development. Improved system stability helps accelerate method development and method transfer. Redesigned fluid paths increase run-to-run reproducibility. New automation options increase unattended run flexibility. The iCE3 truly powers protein research.The iCE3 is the second recent addition to ProteinSimple’s family of products for biologics manufacturers. In May of this year, the MFI 5000 series of imaging analyzers was introduced to meet new regulatory requirements for monitoring aggregates and particles in protein formulations.
ProteinSimple’s goal is simply to help researchers gain a better understanding of proteins and their role in disease. The Company’s strategy is to power protein research by making it simpler and more quantitative, ultimately revealing new insights into the true nature of proteins. ProteinSimple has built a unique portfolio of protein analysis tools including systems for traditional protein imaging, systems to probe the structure and purity of protein-based therapeutics and systems that provide fresh insight into protein signaling. ProteinSimple has over 180 employees, more than 10,000 systems installed around the world and is headquartered in Santa Clara, California. For more information, visit http://www.proteinsimple.com
