The Individual Vial Retrieval (IVR) sample storage system provides fully automated access to individual vials stored at temperatures down to 㫨 C. The IVR's high-speed conveyor system shuttles samples to one or more Vial Handlers (VH). The Vial Handlers re-rack, scan, weigh and sort vials.
LAP4100 printer/applicator for robotics-friendly interface offers precise label placement. Long and narrow bar code labels are placed on microwell plates, for example. Resolutions of up to 600 dots per inch is available, providing bar code and graphic image quality, even on small labels.
OLA2500 modular lab automation system offers aliquoting and pre- and post-analytical sample processing capabilities. As a front-end sample processor, the system automatically decaps, aliquots and sorts tubes to any analyzer sample rack.
Beckman Coulter automated solutions for primary and secondary screening, proteomics and genomics include the Biomek® 2000 and Biomek FX liquid handlers, which can operate as stand-alone systems or can be integrated into SAGIAN Core Systems with a choice of other assay devices.
Advanced Tissue Arrayer (ATA-100) makes tissue microarrays from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded normal and tumor tissues, cell lines, xenographs and transgenic animals. A stereo microscope and movable stage provide dual viewing of the reference slide (H&E or IHC stained) and donor tissue block.
Real-time investigation of cellular and sub-cellular processes. by Paul Hoeprich, Ph.D. Figure 1: Example 203 0.5 N.A. fluorescent micrographs of HeLa cells using the EIDAQ 100 High Throughput Microscopy (HTM) system.
Cell Death Detection ELISA PLUS , a quantitative ELISA for the in vitro determination of cytoplasmic, histone-associated DNA fragments following induced cell death, is a rapid, one-step test.
Kits and reagents for optimizing apoptosis detection in particular research models include proteins and antibodies to assess expression of Bcl-2 family members, survivin and IAPs and to evaluate activity of caspases, PARP and cytochrome c.
Upstate offers a rapid and sensitive microplate-based assay for the detection of H2A.X phosphorylation. Histone H2A.
MBL International has released the 2003 Apoptosis Detection and Analysis Catalog. This resource contains nearly 3 times as many products as the 2002 version, as well as updated tables, graphics, and protocols.
Caspase selective inhibitors and substrates provide critical tools for dissecting the complex mechanisms involved in apoptosis. Q-VD-OPH, a novel compound for in vivo and in vitro applications, is an irreversible broad- spectrum caspase inhibitor.
CellTiter-Blue Cell Viability Assay, a homogeneous method for estimating the number of viable
BioVision offers assays for analyzing the early, middle, and late stages in the apoptotic cascade, and for studying apoptotic events that occur in the different areas of the cells, including the plasma membrane, cytoplasm, mitochondria, and nucleus.
Chemicon® International's ApopTag® apoptosis detection kits detect DNA fragmentation, a hallmark of apoptosis. The newest kit in the line is the ApopTag Peroxidase In Situ Oligo Ligation (ISOL) Apoptosis Detection Kit.
