New Brunswick Scientific's Innova® brand has been expanded to include a new line of CO 2 incubators. Product design combines six-sided direct heating, infrared CO 2 sensing, and fanless convection air circulation to ensure stable and uniform culture environment, with low contamination risk.
UltiMate Plus Nano/Capillary LC modular separation/fractionation system integrates a flow sensor to automate calibration of capillary and nano flow rates.
The Labcyte® Echo 550 compound reformatter performs direct microplate-to-microplate transfers of droplets down to 5 nl (CV 5-50 nl <8%; 5-50 nl. "Touchless" transfer technology is based on focused acoustic energy.
Two-site ELISA for Peptide YY3-36 (PYY3-36) has a dynamic range of 10 to 2000 pg/ml and is suitable for both serum and plasma samples. The assay may be run manually with the generation of results within 5 hours, or fully automated on open-platform microplate systems.
ESA's Metabolomics® System provides the means to examine either a broad spectrum or specific types of small molecules.
CopyRight BAC, fosmid, and large plasmid insert cloning kits offer unbiased cloning of large DNAs and "on command" copy amplification.
VariantSEQr Resequencing System from Applied Biosystems provides everything needed for
PhosphoExploration services from 21st Century Biochemicals include phosphorylation site mapping, and production of phosphorylation state-specific antibodies, as well as of phosphopeptides and cell-permeable peptides.
American Type Culture Collection offers products for the detection of apoptosis, in tissue samples as well as cells in culture, using methodologies including fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, multiwell plate fluorometry, gel electrophoresis, immunochemistry, and radiometric analysis.
The Olympus FluoView FV1000 confocal microscope features a SIM Scanner, which incorporates two independent, fully synchronized laser scanners in a compact design for simultaneous laser stimulation and confocal observation.
Hyaluronic Acid ELISA kit measures HA levels in human or animal biological fluids (blood, serum, urine, diffusate, synovial fluid) or cell supernatants in vitro. Serum HA levels are elevated in several disease states including hepatitis and cirrhosis.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Researchers interested in filamentous fungi will have a new model to derive genetic information from. As part of a five-year, $9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, researchers from seven universities will collaborate on projects aimed at elucidating the Neurospora crassa (bread mold) genome.
by Elizabeth Tolchin By the end of this year, Eli Lilly & Co. will have five clinical candidates for treatment of obesity entering phase I trials.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Rearchers from PTC Therapeutics identified an enzyme complex that plays a part in the production of transfer ribonucleic acid (tRNA) and RNA processing. The complex also shows a link between the pathways involved in regulating messenger RNA (mRNA).
INTEGRA Biosciences (www.integra-biosciences.com) has announced a new applications study, undertaken in conjunction with Eugenix Biotechnologies (Tagerwilen, Switzerland), describing a disposable flask bioreactor for long-term cultivation of high levels of recombinant proteins.
