GeneXP Biosciences, Inc. offers high-throughput gene-expression profiling using automation of Ambion's 96-well MessageAmp process for RNA amplification and labeling. Sample preparation and hybridization processing are performed in 96-well format using standard liquid-handling robotics.
GeneChip® brand Human Genome U133 Plus 2.0 Array provides the protein-coding content of the human genome on a single microarray. The HG-U133 Plus 2.0 Array analyzes the expression level of nearly 50,000 RNA transcripts and variants with 22 different probes per transcript.
Safire 2 (Tecan) fully modular monochromator-based microplate detection system provides a range of high-speed fluorescence techniques.
Biostat® B-DCU provides independent control of up to four culture vessels and a touch screen panel that allow complex system configurations, from process inputs to control loops, including special gas blending strategies.
Designed to fit on a lab bench, the RoboMicroScope I (RoboDesign International, Inc.) is a fully modular and expandable protein crystal imaging and analysis system.
PicoTREC a Topography and RECognition imaging system (Molecular Imaging Corp.) combines real-time detection of molecular recognition events and single-molecule sensitivity with the imaging capability of the Atomic Force Microscope (AFM).
Solution parallel solution phase synthesizer features 2 sizes of septum-sealed reactors, coaxial probes and an enclosed work area flushed with nitrogen that allows reliable performance of sensitive reactions.
The LabChip 3000 Drug Discovery System performs unattended biochemical and cell-based screening assays using Caliper Life Science's microfluidic chips. The entry level LabChip 3000 Development Station is a basic system that is fully upgradeable for high-throughput screening applications.
CellBIND culture surface (Corning Inc. Life Sciences) incorporates a patented technology that uses a microwave process for treating the cell culture surface.
Multi-element probes provide ultrasonic processing of samples in 96well, deep-well plates. The probes deliver ultrasonic intensity directly into the sample no energy is lost. The complete assembly is approximately 260 mm long, and can be mounted on a laboratory stand or an automated system.
