by Elizabeth Tolchin Looking to address the globally increasing resistance of bacteria against different antibiotics, a group of researchers developed a unique approach for identifying antibacterial targets, which could lead to a new class of antibiotics.
Yeast spaghetti are produced by pressing yeast through small holes into a beaker filled with liquid nitrogen. The holes (~1.0 mm diameter) are punched into the bottom of a 50 ml Falcon tube that contains
2-D gel electrophoresis (2DGE) is a widely used protein analysis tool. When it is applied to the separation of basic proteins (pH 7-10), achieving good resolution can be a challenge.
After nearly four decades of advancements in both technology and methodology, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy now plays an important role in
by Elizabeth Tolchin Evotec OAI, a contract compound screening company whose customers include Pfizer and Novartis, announced that it is tracking its large library of compounds and reagents with Titian Software's Mosaic sample management software suite.
The measurement of dynamic changes in fluorescence intensity over space or time can be of vital importance in the study of certain cellular reactions and processes. Analysis of the fluctuations of calcium ion concentrations is one example of this.
Proprietary software module with online review/approval combines automation of centralized alarm/data collection system with the ability to generate, review, comment, and approve online.
Ultra-Centrifugal Mill ZM 200 combines performance with convenience. Powerdrive ensures high performance with increased torque. Rapid size reduction increases sample throughput and, in combination with the 2-step rotor/screen pulverization system, is gentle on the material.
Pro5 Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) pentamers combine five copies of MHC-peptides in a single probe for detecting killer T cells, thus offering enhanced sensitivity.
Multi-axis scanning stage has applications in biotechnology, nanotechnology, scanning nearfield optical microscopes (SNOMs), AFM and SPM scanning microscopy and nano-manipulation. High-resonant 2.3 kHz frequency allows scanning rates of hundreds of hhertz, important for capturing transient data.
Paradigm Array Labs specializes in centralized gene expression processing with services including
The ActiveScale Storage Cluster storage system for scalable Linux clusters delivers up to 30 times more throughput by reading and writing multiple gigabytes of data per second to a single proprietary system.
MagneGST Protein Purification System provides a simple, rapid, and reliable method for purification of GST-tagged expressed proteins, completing the purification process in less than two hours.
NALGENE MF75 Filter Units and Bottle Top Filters incorporate sterilization-grade Supor® machV membranes. The membranes are composed of polyethersulfone (PES. Three-dimensional, V-shaped structure of the membranes accelerates flow rates up to 50% while exhibiting low protein binding.
