Amersham Biosciences has added a Human Whole Genome Bioarray to its CodeLink product range. With 54,841 gene targets, the new chip offers high content, the majority of which has been functionally validated.
Dharmacon, Inc., has expanded its siARRAY Small Interfering RNA (siRNA) library offering. The company has also introduced a whole human genome library containing over 100,000 gene-silencing reagents targeting more than 22,000 unique human genes listed in the NCBI RefSeq database.
Ez-rays universal microarray surface can be used with cDNA probes, oligonucleotide probes (unmodified, amine-modified, or Acrydite modified), and proteins. The slides provide high signal intensity, low background, and effective reproducibility for microarray fabrication.
Conduct hybs, washes, detections and other processes at up to 16 experiments per slide, simultaneously treating the group as a single working unit. Four, "16-array" slides fit into a tray that allows robotic systems (designed to manipulate 96-well formats) to process them.
The company offers a range of ceramic materials and coatings for microarray slides. With their chemical inertness, resistance to protein binding, and optical properties, the ceramic materials and coatings provide an ideal environment for microarray slides used in the analysis of DNA and proteins.
Thiol-based Functionalization Kits include a choice of thiol-based chemicals, gold-coated glass slides or coverslips, as well as an easy-to-follow protocol.
Vivid microarray slides are constructed of a glass base with a membrane printing area. The use of membrane slides as a microarray substrate facilitates high binding and simple immobilization methods.
As the progression from cDNA arrays to oligos continues, the company offers a substrate for covalent attachment of short oligonucleotides (approximately 30-mers) with reagents for printing and hybridization and array washing.
Human Cytokine Biochip incorporates surface-bound affinity capture agents with three-dimensional biochip architecture to quantitatively analyze specific cytokines and chemokines existing in human samples.
By Mark Terry Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are enzymes that remove acetyl groups from lysines near the ends of the histones, the proteins wrapped in the DNA of chromosomes.
BioPette E Electronic Pipettes feature a motorized piston drive, are available in single and multichannel versions, and are lightweight, ergonomic, and accurate. A high precision stepper motor and optical coupler system accurately monitor and control piston movement.
Sias Xantus modular robotic pipetting system combines flexible liquid handling with robotic manipulation. Modular design allows hardware to be configured and upgraded to suit a range of applications.
Finnpipette Novus features a 2-level menu that includes 10 different pipetting options and is programmable for advanced functions, such as pipette and count, sequential stepper, and mix and dilute. Text-guided graphical user interface and clear display are easy to understand and read.
Peristaltic dispensing pump 323Dz (Watson-Marlow Bredel) incorporates a flip-top pump head for simple tube loading. The unit is offered for applications such as metering, dosing and the scale transfer of live cell cultures, nutrients and bioreactor constituents.
Cellmate II portable serological pipettor is powered by a Lithium Ion battery with a lifetime guarantee. Available in 5 color options, the pipettor includes a table stand, wall mount, universal power supply and plug adapters for international use.
