MaxArray mouse and rat brain tissue microarrays contain 64 mouse or rat brain tissue samples arrayed on Superfrost Plus microscope slides. Each slide contains 4 cores from each of 4 distinct types of brain tissue from 4 mice or rats, for a total of 64 t issue samples per slide.
CAL Fluor and Quasar Dyes, two series of dyes for multiplex real-time, quantitative PCR (rt, Q-PCR), have emission maxima ranging from 522 nm to 670 nm. The dyes are offered as alternatives for seven fluorophores commonly used on real-time thermocyclers: TET, JOE, VIC, HEX, Texas Red, Cy3 and Cy5.
Aerius Automated Infrared Imaging System from LI-COR Biosciences is designed for protein discovery using infrared plate-based assays. The system builds on the company’s Odyssey two-channel infrared detection system and adds a reader capable of handling up to 30 microplates in a single run.
Serum is a ready source of proteins that may provide information regarding response to drug treatments, disease states, or environmental stimuli. The ability to identify these proteins is hindered by the presence of a relatively few but highly concentrated set of high-abundant proteins.

Context is everything in biology. "The old days of saying that a protein does such-and-such are over," notes Ian Ley, Director of Cellular Analysis at Beckman Coulter (Fullerton, CA). "Now everything is understood to be interconnected, and cross-connected."
Eppendorf epMotion 5075 robotic liquid-handling workstations feature an innovative optical sensor to monitor labware and liquid levels on the 12-place deck. Stations have the ability to automatically change pipetting heads and move labware to various positions.
