Electromagnetic deep well plate and tube shakers rapidly mix the contents of 96 or 384 well deep microplates as well as multiple racks of 1.5 to 3.0 ml tubes.
TTP LabTech has announced the comPOUND® Double-Density (D2) sample store, holds two shorter microtubes (0.35 ml instead of the standard 1.0 ml) in each hole of comPOUND's carousels, doubling capacity to 200,000 tubes.
NUNC brand 384 DeepWell Plate and Well Cap Mat provide storage for DMSO and other strong chemicals and solvents. The plate, constructed of chemical-resistant polypropylene, features 240 μl wells with diamond-shaped conical well bottoms to maximize sample retrieval.
Heraeus® HERAcell® 150 tri-gas incubator is available with either stainless steel or fungicidal/bactericidal solid copper interior.
PuriCare Bedding Disposal Station protects operators from airborne particulates. Room air is drawn into the front of the enclosure, preventing aerosols from escaping into the room.
Labtronics Inc. has announced the release of a new Validation Toolkit for their LIMS interfacing applications, LimsLink and LimsLink CDS .
Quantikine ELISA for mouse ICAM-1 is now available from R&D Systems. ICAM-1 (Intercellular Adhesion Molecule-1) is an inducible transmembrane molecule that plays a role in cell migration, antigen presentation and leukocyte activation.
NF?B is widely recognized as a critical mediator of immune and inflammatory responses. Other identified subunits include p52 (NF?B2), c-Rel, and RelB. The p65, cRel, and RelB subunits are responsible for transactivation.
PRIMA 40 backed nitrocellulose membranes for immunodiagnostic assays, are lateral flow membranes featuring a nominal flow rate of 40 sec/4 cm. Designed to significantly reduce issues related to the use of viscous load biological samples, e.g.
SofTouch Electronic Pipettes provide a feather-touch button to initiate multiple liquid handling functions, including pipetting, reverse pipetting, multiple dispensing, sequenced dispensing, diluting, and mixing.
Apoptosis Suite enables examination of three separate biological aspects of cell death in order to assess whether each cell is in the early- mid- or late-stages of apoptosis. The suite includes assays for membrane changes (Annexin V), activation of caspase enzymes, and DNA fragmentation (TUNEL).
HyperMu Insertion Kit enables generation of a complete DNA sequence from even the largest BAC clone with the two unique primers and HyperMu Transposon, and eliminates the need for primer walking or subcloning.
Serologicals Corporation has announced that its research division, Chemicon International, Inc., will launch an OligoDetect® assay for fast and accurate detection of nucleic acids specific to SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).
Alto Matrices make reproducible sections of the mouse and rat brain. Stainless steel and acrylic units are offered, in either coronal (perpendicular to a center line) or sagittal (parallel to center line) cutting sections.
Bruker Optics Inc. now offers a variety of new applications for supporting drug discovery, ranging from the molecular to the cellular level, based on new accessories and infrared technology. This new concept is called "Infrared Fingerprinting".
