Serologicals Corporation has announced that its research division, Chemicon International, Inc., will launch an OligoDetect® assay for fast and accurate detection of nucleic acids specific to SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).
Alto Matrices make reproducible sections of the mouse and rat brain. Stainless steel and acrylic units are offered, in either coronal (perpendicular to a center line) or sagittal (parallel to center line) cutting sections.
Bruker Optics Inc. now offers a variety of new applications for supporting drug discovery, ranging from the molecular to the cellular level, based on new accessories and infrared technology. This new concept is called "Infrared Fingerprinting".
New 96-Well Pattern Sealing Film is adhesive-free around the 96-wells, a feature that prevents the adhesive from adhering to plastic pipette tips or metal probes. The adhesive is solvent free.
Agarose Blenders are Agarose I/TBE and Agarose/TAE powder blends that provide improved background, clarity and resolution in electrophoresis. The TBE (or TAE) buffer is already mixed in with the agarose at a 1× concentration.
IN Cell Analyzer 1000 modular, sub -cellular image analysis platform provides can be used in screening, lead profiling, target validation and assay development.
West Nile virus (1) is a flavivirus, which can infect humans, birds, horses and other mammals and is transmitted primarily by mosquitoes. The virus was recently introduced into the Eastern United States, with the first case reported in 1999, and has spread rapidly across the continent. (2) It presents a threat to human and animal health, with the most severe infections causing encephalitis, which can be fatal. In 2002 the Centers for Disease Control reported 3,893 laboratory-positive human cases in the US resulting in 254 deaths, a greater than 50 fold increase when compared to 2001 laboratory-positive human cases.
GMP chromatographically purified collagenase is used in tissue dissociation from human and animal organs. Collagenase NB1 is optimized for human pancreatic islet isolation.
The 4000 Q TRAP LC/MS/MS system provides MS/MS capabilities offers ion trap sensitivity and triple quadrupole functionality for a range of applications.
The Lewis Rat model aids in studying the biological mechanisms of immunology and treatments for diabetes. This albino, inbred rat is commonly used to produce an autoimmune research model. Various autoimmune models can be produced by immunization with homologous tissue and adjuvant.
jetSI reagents deliver siRNA duplexes to mammalian cells, and provide up to 98% silencing of a transgene at 10 nM siRNA, and up to 80% endogenous lamin A/C silencing in a variety of cell lines.
LCMS-2010A provides sensitive, high level throughput. A new drying gas system creates a fine spray for sensitive analyses of low to medium polarity compounds.
Vector Xpression 3.0 provides statistical analyses of microarray and gene expression data, supported by a set of algorithms and accessible through a user interface. The program includes a recordable macro function that streamlines multiple-step analyses.
The mir Vana miRNA Detection Kit simultaneously detects small RNAs, such as miRNA or siRNA and mRNA. The solution hybridization assay is based on a patented ribonuclease protection assay.
Eppendorf epMotion 5070 liquid handling station automates pipetting, dispensing, and dispensing variants. Pipetting sequences that were previously carried out manually can be quickly transferred to the station. The mouse and keyboard of the integrated control panel power the station.
