The Biostat® i modular bioprocess system is comprised of the Biostat i twin controller; the Biostat i interface; and either stirred tank or spinner flask culture vessels. The Biostat i twin controller allows two vessels to be controlled simultaneously.
Currently available for moderate (eight samples per array) and high (96 samples per array) sample throughput needs, Illumina gene expression arrays allow the analysis of up to 1,500 genes per sample. Expression data show strong correlation with qPCR.
New NUNC EZFlip 15 and 50 ml conical centrifuge tubes can bs used in protein and DNA precipitation, subcellular fractionation, sample storage, and cell pelleting of all types. Patented hinged-cap closure system allows for easy, single-handed opening.
Kinase CloneSet, a designated subset of over 500 full-length kinase cDNA clones, has been added to the OriGene Technologies TrueClone Collection product line. The Kinase CloneSet approaches the predicted 518 putative genes in the "Kinome" (Manning, G. et al.
Platform for post-amplification genotyping, gene scanning, and SNP/mutation detection uses closed tube DNA amplification reaction with the Idaho Technologies LCGreen I Dye and HR-1 High Resolution Melter.
The BioAssembly Tool (BAT) digitally prints live cells and other biological, biocompatible, and bioactive materials layer by layer to build three-dimensional living tissues and other bio-structures.
The Gel XL Ultra mini gel electrophoresis system includes an intelligent power supply, migration tank and a convenient gel casting set. A photo sensor detects the presence and orientation of the lid and cuts power to the electrodes if the lid is not in place, a key safety feature.
G 78 undercounter glassware washing system line is comprised of three washers. The G 7883 provides 8 cleaning programs in a standard-size undercounter unit. The G 7883CD adds HEPA-filtered forced air drying and on-board liquid detergent dispensing.
AniGARD® VF five-foot wide animal transfer station is a vertical-flow, single-sided clean bench that provides animal protection and particulate control during routine cage-changing operations while maximizing productivity and flexibility.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Silicon Genetics released the next version of its desktop software tool for visualization and analysis of genomic expression data. The GeneSpring 6.1 software provides statistical, graphical, visual, and analytical tools for querying large sets of data. The new version adds additional features for aidiing data analysis and sharing.
by Elizabeth Tolchin New research examining gene expression patterns as a result of the immuno-inflammatory response to trauma incorporates Affymetrix GeneChip technology to profile trauma patients.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Patients with a rare inherited form of Parkinson's disease (PD) have an excess of the alpha-synuclein (aSyn) producing gene, creating a buildup of protein inside brain cells, resulting in a condition that resembles symptoms of PD. New research uses a yeast model to better understand how and when the gene's production of alpha-synuclein becomes harmful to surrounding cells.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Lexicon Genetics Incorporated obtained a patent this weak entitled "High Efficiency Gene Targeting in Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells" that covers methods of producing genetically engineered knockout mice by gene targeting.
by Elizabeth Tolchin A protein called ARF, known to play a role in tumor suppression, may also play a role in cell growth.
