Hamamatsu Photonic Systems has introduced a new low light camera. The new C7190-53 Electron Bombardment CCD camera produces spotless images in low light at fast frame rates. A high gain sensor and special electronics facilitate live cell biology applications.
Vacu-Cell Model VC-RPC-B-SS uses two rectangular coverslips to form a microscopy perfusion chamber. Two sets of dual O-rings on the bottom of the chamber body securely hold a 24 × 40 mm (upper) and a 48 × 65 mm (lower) coverslip in place.
Optilab rEX (refractometer with EXtended range) uses a combination of semiconductor photodiode technology and proprietary computer algorithms to have the full range of instrument detection always be present, and to provide full sensitivity over the entire range.
Invitrogen Corp. recently announced a new policy related to its Gateway technology, under which researchers who purchase the system will be able to create and freely distribute clones within the scientific community.
The EnduraTEC ITEMS (Intelligent Tissue Engineering via Mechanical Stimulation) BioReactor is a
OptiGrid Structured Light Imaging System provides benchtop contrast, sharpness and clarity in microscopic 2D optical sectioning and 3D image reconstruction on the lab bench. The system is suited for multi-wavelength fluorescence imaging with exceptional deblurring capability.
ChemiDoc-It Imaging System has a light-tight cabinet features a light-tight cabinet. A high sensitivity, monochrome camera is designed specifically for imaging Western blots and samples in chemiluminescent and bioluminescent applications.
Deep Purple Total Protein fluorescent stain provides for the detection and visualization of proteins in 1D and 2D gels. The product offers a complete labeling and detection solution for every step of protein analysis, from sample preparation to mass spectrometry.
TekBench-SP is a fully automated liquid handling platform for the processing of tube- and plate-based samples in an inert environment, providing protection from oxygen, moisture, light, dust factors known to compromise sample integrity and stability.
Lightools Research Macro-Illumination Imaging System Plus with Cooled CCD facilitates real time imaging of living animals. Multi-wavelength (390-750 nm) illumination from the Illumatool Dual Lighting System improves detection, sensitivity and speed.
The BD FACSArray bioanalyzer provides high-content analysis of proteins for work in cell biology, immunology, and drug discovery.
Bead mill MM 301 homogenizes sample volumes from 0.5 to 30 ml under liquid nitrogen. The sample and bead are safely contained in the screw-cap stainless steel jar, which is immersed in liquid nitrogen.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Vical Inc. received two U.S. Patents covering methods for using DNA to deliver biologically active proteins (No. 6,673,776), and a class of cationic lipids useful in gene delivery applications (No. 6,670,332).
by Elizabeth Tolchin The Naval Medical Research Center (NMRC) plans to work with Inovio AS to conduct trials of Inovio's in vivo electroporation (EP) technology for delivery of DNA vaccines, as part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA).
by Elizabeth Tolchin Biologists identified a mutant gene in maize that plays a role in meiosis. In the case of maize (or corn), the process is essential for producing the megagametophyte, which is the egg, and pollen, the equivalent to sperm in animals.
