PathwayExpert is an enterprise class software platform for pathway analysis and systems biology, and allows researchers to analyze microarray and proteomics data, to create and share custom pathways for diseases, drug targets, biomarkers, and to perform literature mining.
BioWorks 3.2 protein identification software suite enables scientists and researchers to quickly and accurately identify proteins. The software supports Thermo Electron Corporation’s entire range of Finnigan ion trap mass spectrometers.
ArrayPure nano-scale RNA purification kit provides the reagents needed to purify RNA from one or more eukaryotic cells, including quantities typically obtained with laser capture procedures. The kit contains only aqueous solutions and requires no toxic organic solvents.
Polypropylene 96-well and 384-well PCR plates offer high level heat exchange properties and precise dimensional tolerances. They are guaranteed DNase- and RNase-free, and non-pyrogenic.
QuantiTect Multiplex RT-PCR Kits provide reliable quantitation of up to four RNA targets in a tube or well without optimization steps. Designed for gene expression analysis, the kits provide accurate quantification of the expression of target and control genes.
The Micronucleus Formation Module, a software application for IN Cell Analyzer 1000 and 3000, allows screening for genotoxicity early in drug development. The micronuclei assay identifies DNA damage induced by genotoxic compounds and is critical in the FDA approval process for new drugs.
Invitrogen Corporation has announced the release of Vector NTI Advance 10. Centering on Vector NTI sequence analysis software, this new issue is the latest Windows version of the application.
MagicMark XP Western Protein Standard provides direct marker band visualization on Western blots. Each protein contains an IgG binding site, allowing marker visualization using the same antibody-conjugate reagents and protocol for the target protein as a user’s immunoassay.
