gPROMS ProcessBuilder is a unified equation-oriented process modelling environment for applications across the plant, from complex catalytic reaction and separation to wastewater treatment and utilities. The new version 1.2 updates ProcessBuilder’s steady-state and dynamic process modelling capabilities, and adds a new high-fidelity rate-based separation model library as well as new libraries for wastewater treatment plant design and design and operational analysis of site utilities systems. A new Olefins library enables detailed modelling and optimisation of ethylene plant cracking furnaces.
ProcessBuilder 1.2 also beings a step change in the ability to include detailed reactor models within process flowsheets for simultaneous design and economic optimisation of reactor and separation sections. PSE’s industry-leading Fixed-Bed Catalytic Reactor library has been significantly upgraded, and a new Trickle-Bed Reactor library now allows design of wetted-surface catalytic reactions such as benzene hydrogenation, hydrotreating and Fischer-Tropsch synthesis.
Built on PSE’s state-of-the art gPROMS® 5.0 modelling platform, ProcessBuilder 1.2 also includes powerful new features such as global system analysis (GSA) and high-performance computing (HPC). GSA enables easy, systematic exploration of the complex process decision space using high-fidelity models, making it possible to rapidly assess risks under uncertainty and screen and rank process design and operation alternatives.
HPC brings new power for computationally-intensive calculations, allowing users fully to exploit multi-processor/multi-core machines in order to accelerate large-scale optimisation and GSA applications. A new dynamic solver accelerates execution of dynamic simulation, optimisation and parameter estimation activities by factors of up to 5.
Costas Pantelides, PSE CEO, says “Our mission is to put powerful tools in the hands of sophisticated users who want to move beyond the heat-and-material balance capabilities of traditional process simulators. A major thrust of current developments is the support of high-value applications capable of significantly improving process economics. Next generation large-scale optimisation and analysis techniques mean that it is now possible to revisit many processes that were considered already optimised, and generate substantial new value.”
For more than 50 years, Business Wire has been the global leader in press release distribution and regulatory disclosure.

European Commission Grants New Indication for Soliris® (Eculizumab) for the Treatment of Patients with Refractory Generalized Myasthenia Gravis (gMG)21.8.2017 16:25 | Tiedote
Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALXN) announced today that the European Commission (EC) approved the extension of the indication for Soliris® (eculizumab) to include the treatment of refractory generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG) in adults who are anti-acetylcholine receptor (AChR) antibody-positive. Soliris is the first and only complement-based therapy approved in the European Union (EU) for this ultra-rare subset of patients.1-4 Patients with refractory gMG can have difficulties walking, talking, swallowing and breathing normally despite therapies currently used for MG. Exacerbations and crises of their disease may require hospitalization and intensive care and may be life-threatening.5-7 Soliris will be launched for this new indication initially in Germany, and Alexion is evaluating launches in additional EU countries. “Patients with refractory gMG have exhausted multiple the
IntegenX Applauds the Passage of the Rapid DNA Act of 201721.8.2017 15:00 | Tiedote
IntegenX Inc., the global market leader for Rapid DNA human identification, applauds the signing into law of S.139 and HR.510, The Rapid DNA Act of 2017. The legislation will allow law enforcement agencies, under standards and guidelines established by the FBI, to perform real-time DNA testing at time of arrest, within booking stations. Similar to how fingerprint analysis has evolved from a paper and ink practice to a point-of-action technology, DNA testing has now become possible in 90 minutes within a booking station, while a suspect is still in custody. With processing times reduced from weeks to less than two hours, the potential to identify or exonerate a suspect quickly will make a meaningful impact on law enforcement. IntegenX thanks U.S. Senate sponsor Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and lead co-sponsor Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) as well as House sponsor Congressman
PPG Completes COLORFUL COMMUNITIES Project at Primary School in Kecskemét, Hungary21.8.2017 11:03 | Tiedote
PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced the completion of a COLORFUL COMMUNITIES™ project in Kecskemét, Hungary, that helped revitalize the learning environment of the Corvin Mátyás primary school. The Colorful Communities program provides PPG volunteers and products along with financial contributions to bring color and vitality to communities where the company operates around the world, such as in Kecskemét, where the PPG automotive service team operates with 33 employees. The project brought together more than 140 PPG and community volunteers who spent three days at the school revitalizing four classrooms, four changing rooms and the playground. PPG provided more than $20,000 to assist with the project, including more than 460 liters of Héra ® Prémium waterborne interior paint and Trinát ® Aqua wate

Boehringer Ingelheim: Advancing anticoagulation care with new data at ESC Congress 201721.8.2017 10:08 | Tiedote
Boehringer Ingelheim today announced that it will present important new data on the treatment of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) at the ESC Congress in Barcelona, Spain, 26-30 August 2017. In total, four abstracts have been accepted, investigating different aspects of AF patient treatment. The results of the RE-DUAL PCI™ trial have been selected for one of the Late Breaking Science sessions of the congress. The RE-DUAL PCI™ trial compared dual therapy with triple therapy after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent placement in approximately 2,500 adults with atrial fibrillation. Patients were either treated with dabigatran etexilate (Pradaxa®) and a single antiplatelet agent or with the vitamin K antagonist (VKA) warfarin and two antiplatelets. The dabigatran doses investigated in this trial are the same doses which have already demonstrated effective stroke preven
Study Investigates Performance of Masimo PVi® As Part of Goal-Directed Fluid Therapy During Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery21.8.2017 09:00 | Tiedote
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the findings of a recently published study in which researchers at Firat University in Turkey evaluated the performance of Masimo PVi®, a noninvasive and continuous measurement of the dynamic changes in perfusion index (Pi) that occur during respiratory cycles, as the basis of a goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) protocol during laparoscopic bariatric surgery on mechanically-ventilated patients.1 In the study, Dr. Demirel and colleagues sought to evaluate whether using GDFT guided by PVi on morbidly obese patients undergoing laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery might result in less intravenous fluid use without compromising outcomes. They enrolled 60 patients and divided them randomly into control and GDFT groups. The control group’s fluid levels were managed by standard fluid therapy, using mean arterial pressure (MAP) and
