Ni Sepharose 6 Fast Flow medium purifies His-tagged proteins and provides reliable and cost-effective scale-up. Large 90 μm bead size minimizes problems associated with back-pressure at high flow rates, and enables large volumes to be purified.
X-tremeGENE siRNA transfection reagent allows knockdown experiments with siRNA and co-transfection experiments using siRNA and DNA. The reagent requires no media changes and demonstrates minimal cytotoxicity. It offers broad effectiveness on various cells types and provides effective gene knockdown.
COX-1 Targeted Mutation Mice reveal no physical differences compared to wild-type mice. Upon gross and microscopic examination, organ systems, including the gastrointestinal, respiratory and reproductive tract appear normal and healthy.
Sartolab 150v vacuum filter capsule for large volume laboratory-scale sterile filtration is used in cell culture, filtration of media and buffers, and the fermentation process.
NEXT (New Electrophoresis X'PRESS Technology) Gel PAGE is a continuous gel electrophoresis system for protein separation. The new products offer full range resolution of a range of proteins in a simple to use continuous gel electrophoresis format. The gel will resolve 14.2 and 14.
Nexxis ST, the newest member of the Nexxis LAB suite of products, provides small to medium sized laboratories with an affordable system for storing and tracking their test results.
Polymer Laboratories has launched a range of capillary and micro chromatography columns for small-scale chromatography. Chemically stable polymeric particles do not leach either soluble or particulate species.
Porvair Sciences offers a comprehensive range of high quality 96- and 384-well microplates. Clear polystyrene or opaque polypropylene plates are available for routine adsorption, absorption, mixing and storage applications with flat, round and v-bottomed wells.
Locator is a new software and microscope attachment from TTP LabTech for its range of Acumen Explorer microplate cytometers. With Locator, researchers can quickly clarify early stage assay development data for enhanced screening performance.
