Claudins 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are available for use in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues. Recent studies implicate claudin 4 in pancreatic cancer, claudins 1, 2, 3 and 5 in colon cancer and claudin 3 in prostrate cancer.
VECTASHIELD® Hard-Set Mounting Medium, for fluorescently stained tissue sections and cells, provides protection from photobleaching and fading, with the additional benefit of hardening. Handling and storage of mounted sections is easy, and sealing of coverslips is not required.
Silencer siRNA Antibodies allow users to correlate siRNA uptake with down regulation of protein expression. These antibodies, for ?-actin, GAPDH and c-myc, correspond to the proteins silenced, and are ideal for developing and optimizing siRNA experiments.
Thermo Electron Corporation is now offering a custom synthesis service for synthetic short interfering RNA molecules (siRNA). RNA interference (RNAi) has gained attention in drug discovery and development due to its ability to selectively silence gene expression.
Human Cell Isolation Kits II products provide fast and convenient isolation of untouched human pan T cells, CD4 + > T cells, CD8sup>+/sup> T cells, monocytes, B cells, naive B cells and NK cells.
EX-CYTE®, from Serologicals, is a liquid concentrate of cholesterol, lipids, and fatty acid. This media supplement provides a cost-effective way to reduce or even replace the use of serum in cell culture when used in conjunction with other critical media supplements.
GoTaq thermostable DNA polymerase allows researchers to take reactions directly from thermal cycler to agarose gel electrophoresis.
UltraClean GelSpin DNA Purification Kit utilizes a silica spin filter method to purify DNA fragments from TAE or TBE agarose gels. The procedure, which takes five minutes, removes ethidium bromide, linkers, and labels. Kit format allows one to simply melt, bind, wash and collect DNA.
Soil represents one of the most diverse habitats for microorganisms. by Ravi J. Venugopal and Mark N.
Diaphragm vacuum pumps provide effective vacuum for bottle top and manifold filtration, vacuum degassing, desiccation and other applications. These pumps are maintenance-free, as there is no pump oil to change, nor is water or a drain required for operation.
Ductless filtration systems for robotics instruments can be custom engineered for specific fume/particle or containment problems. Modular design enables building to specification economically.
The GR4 automated centrifuge presents and accepts microplates above the lid. Plate-handling robots do not have to insert themselves into the centrifuge to pick and/or place samples, so any type of gripper configuration can be used.
The N5 Submicron Particle Size Analyzer's 25 mW output laser allows analysis of samples in the 3 nm to 3 μm sizes range, samples that can be difficult to measure due to their weak scattering nature.
Jouan IG 650, water-jacketed, 5.4 cubic foot, benchtop incubator is equipped for total environmental control. Sensors and digital systems are provided to control temperature, relative humidity, and CO 2 .
Incubators provide precise temperature control and uniformity by utilizing microprocessor control. Shortwave ultraviolet sterilizes the chamber between experiments. The incubator is designed with minimal airflow disturbance. Two non-tip shelves are adjustable at 2.5 inch (63.5 mm) increments.
