On-line PyroSense endotoxin detection system facilitates in-process monitoring of fever-causing gram negative bacterial endotoxin in "water for injection" (WFI) systems used for the production of injectable drugs, medical devices, and other therapeutic products.
Freezer Bond thermal transfer printable label material adheres to frozen surfaces. The labels can be applied to cryogenically frozen vials and will stay in place over time.
This hose incorporates a cover of pure silicone, which encases stainless steel overbraided PTFE, to protect personnel from high temperatures during handling. At the same time, the outer surface remains clean and smooth.
Compact, walk-in Class II-style clean air and containment enclosure designed for high-volume robotic and automated equipment applications, the BioPROtect® Jr.

by Chris Dickey, DrPH Nanostream's analytical system formally announced at LabAutomation 2004
by Chris Dickey, DrPH Looking to extend its reach into academic and small biotechnology laboratories, Beckman Coulter Inc., Fullerton, Calif., introduced a smaller and less expensive version of its Biomek FX liquid handling system at the LabAutomation 2004 meeting in San Jose, Calif.
by Chris Dickey, DrPH The productivity/innovation gap identified in a now-famous equation developed in 1996 by Juergen Drews, MD, that sent shock waves through the pharmaceutical industry is showing few signs of abating despite the addition of thousands of potential new genomic-based targets.
by Chris Dickey, DrPH Through use of high-throughput screening, scientists at Hoffmann-La Roche, Nutley, N.J., identified a class of small molecules called Nutlins, which activates the tumor suppressor p53 by preventing the binding of a key inhibitor.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Looking for a new source of venture capital for that great idea you've been carrying around? Call Novartis. The Novartis Venture Fund, which recently released its 2003 activity report, committed $35 million in new financing last year.
by Elizabeth Tolchin There are literally hundreds of small computer programs that analyze diffraction data obtained from x-ray protein crystallography. A new program, called Elves, provides a unified interface that removes the tedious human intervention involved in using those other programs.
Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) is a technique used for quantifying the distance between two molecules conjugated to different fluorophores.
GeneEraser siRNA transfection reagent is designed for transfection of siRNA into mammalian cells. This low-toxicity reagent has demonstrated high transfection efficiency of siRNA in a variety of cell lines.
T7 RiboMAX Express RNAi System (a,b,c) is an in vitro transcription system designed for producing milligram amounts of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) in a short amount of time.
The RNA Inspector Kit evaluates RNA and cDNA for the presence of transcripts from 1 kb to 14 kb from human, mouse and rat tissues and cell lines. The kit evaluates RNA integrity and quality, the success of cDNA synthesis, and ensures full-length cDNA when constructing cDNA libraries.
