Scienceware Molded 100 mm Petri Dish Rack securely holds up to 42 Petri dishes with lids when carrying, incubating or processing samples on the bench top. Up to 4 loaded racks can be stacked together and interlocked to prevent an accidental knock over.
Agencourt Bioscience Corp. has introduced a Primer Walking Sequencing Service for individual samples. Primer Walking, an established product within Agencourt's high throughput pipeline, is now available to low throughput users.
MagAB nanoparticle allows scientists to attach antibodies, antibody fragments, peptides, DNA or ligands to magnetic bead surfaces. The beads are valuable to researchers looking for specific proteins or binding partners, and for biologically selective and very sensitive specific clinical assays.
The Cayman Chemical Aldosterone EIA kit - monoclonal is a competitive assay that provides measurements of aldosterone within the range of 7.8-1,000 pg/ml, typically with a detection limit (80% B/B0) of approximately 21 pg/ml.
DNA Research Innovations Ltd. has expanded its range of ChargeSwitch nucleic acid purification technologies. The kits avoid the introduction of known PCR inhibitors, such as alcohols, concentrated chaotropic salts or organic solvents.
GE Healthcare, a combination of the former Amersham and GE Medical Systems, is to help further address bottlenecks in the drug discovery process with the introduction of a range of pre-developed protocols for G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) membranes.
New 96-well Equilibrium Dialyzer for ligand binding experiments, including serum protein binding, protein-drug binding, protein-protein binding and protein-DNA binding assays, provides a simple and reliable method for analysis of up to 96 samples.
ACE1 Two Hybrid System for gene discovery and functional analysis is useful for efficiently identifying protein-protein interactions in vivo. It combines the advantages of the copper-inducible transcription factor ACE1 and the copper resistance-mediating CUP1 gene with the proven GFP reporter.
COOLSCOPE VS, the next generation of the Nikon Instruments, Inc. COOLSCOPE digital microscope, integrates a software suite for virtual microscopy developed by Bacus Laboratories Inc. (www.bacuslabs.com).
