Qbiogene has introduced three new kits for purifying mRNA directly from cells, tissues, or total RNA. Formulated to achieve high yields, the kits incorporate a peptide nucleic acid (PNA) molecular probe that has an extremely high binding affinity for mRNA.
UltraClean Plant DNA Isolation Kit isolates DNA from plant cells and tissues in less than 35 minutes. The kit removes polysaccharide and phenolic inhibitors of PCR yielding DNA greater than 50 kb in length. Purified DNA is ready for immediate use.
MRC geneservice's (MRCg) Whole Genome Amplification service provides amplification of small quantities of DNA to provide sufficient quantities for larger scale and multiple projects.
The Ovation RNA Amplification System (NuGEN Technologies, Inc.), enables analysis of small samples for gene expression experiments, especially those based on real-time quantitative PCR (QPCR).
Affymetrix, Inc. and ParAllele BioScience offer early technology access to ParAllele's MegAllele genotyping reagents for use with Affymetrix GeneChip arrays, enabling researchers to perform large-scale gnotyping in their own labs with their own panels of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
The pSKAN Phagemid Display System for high-throughput screening of protein-protein interactions as well as for selection and production of novel proteins with specific binding properties and 3-D structure-based protein design.
NucleoSpin Extract II Kit is suitable for both gel extraction as well as PCR purification. The procedure is simple. The spin column binds DNA to a silica membrane in the presence of chaotropic salt.
Rapid Homogenization Kit, for extraction of DNA from plant leaf tissue, enables investigators to quickly and inexpensively process a sample yielding a solution containing DNA, ready to be amplified using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR).
Microarray products offered by Genetix, Inc., are suitable for screening the efficacy of short-interfering RNA (siRNA) molecules in RNA Interference (RNAi) studies.
MAGEX Frog cDNA Array is offered for research in developmental biology and environmental toxicology. The array is constructed using isolated gene fragments from Xenopus laevis and Rana catesbeiana frog species.
Eppendorf CombiSlide and PCR plate adapters provide maximum support during centrifugation in Eppendorf microplate rotors for multipurpose centrifuges 5804, 5804 R, 5810 and 5810 R. The CombiSlide glass slide/microarray adapter holds a maximum of 12 microscope slides per bucket.
BD Falcon 96-Multiwell Insert System is a cell culture insert platform suitable for both manual and robotic screening of compounds in cell-based assays.
Shandon EZ Megafunnel facilitates thin-layer slide preparations, and eliminates the need for metal Cytoclips. Intended for single use on the Shandon Cytospin cytocentrifuge, it is dedicated to preparation of large volume samples, of up to 6 ml.
New, 50 ml serological pipettes are gamma sterilized. Offered as part of a product line offering capacities from 1 to 50 ml, they are manufactured from medical grade polyethylene and certified non-pyrogenic. Units are color-coded and cotton-plugged, with standard and negative printed graduations.
Sterile polycarbonate flasks can be autoclaved and are resusable. They are offered for shaker and suspension cell culture, are compatible with all cell culture media, reagents and buffers, and are virtually unbreakable.
