By Catherine Shaffer Inhalation anthrax is fatal unless diagnosed and treated at an early stage. The anthrax toxin enters cells by binding its protective antigen (PA) to receptors on the outsides of cells. -->Inhalation anthrax is fatal unless diagnosed and treated at an early stage.
The BD FACSArray bioanalyzer provides high-content analysis of proteins for work in cell biology, immunology, and drug discovery. This benchtop system is composed of an analyzer with a 96-well plate sampler, an optical detection unit, a computer workstation, and acquisition and analysis software.
AutoSeal (Tomtec, Inc.) high-throughput microplate heat sealer integrates bi-directional stackers. The unit works with a variety of plate types and seal materials without the need for programming or using wedges to accommodate different plate heights.
