FirstChoice products each include 5 μg of total RNA isolated from individual tumors and the normal adjacent tissue (NAT). Samples are derived from a single donor and have not been pooled with other RNA.
Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscopy (TIFR-M) on the Axiovert 200 delivers quality visualization of cell behavior in their environment and molecule-molecule interactions in cell-free systems.
Polartherm total temperature control software operates remotely while maintaining communication with existing HPLC equipment. Theunit takes advantage of temperature gradients during chromatographic runs, as it is capable of hot and cold temperatures and temperature programming.
R5 Central Laboratory Vacuum Systems come equipped with special seal material, a purge assembly to remove condensable vapors from the pump prior to shutdown, corrosion-resistant components in the exhaust box, and an exhaust flange adapter to permit remote exhausting of a variety of gases.
Ni-NTA-Nanogold® detects and localizes His-tagged proteins using electron microscopy, light microscopy, and blotting. It features a 1.8-nm Nanogold particle with multiple nickel (II)-nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) functionalities incorporated into the ligands on the surface of gold particles.
Chirascan Circular Dichroism Spectrometer uses double-polarizing prism optics to facilitate light throughput, particularly in the far-UV, quickly collecting quality CD spectra. Acquisition software optimizes measurements as they progress and ensures that results are meaningful.
The Midgard Precision Current Source features a high-compliance voltage of 1000 V for injections from very small or partially clogged pipette tips. Output current level can be regulated to ۪.5%, from 0.0 to 200 MegOhms.
FTIR-4000 and FTIR 6000 spectrometers, incorporated in the AccuTrac DSP mirror tracking system, provide reproducibility of interferometer mirror velocity and position resulting in a high signal-to-noise ratio.
StarBlast software program enables BLAST or text searches on DNA and protein sequence databases, using a Windows desktop machine as the server and providing a GUI interface on Windows and Macintosh platforms to interact with the server for database creation and maintenance.
Nucleostemin protein is found in the nucleoli of CNS stem cells, embryonic stem cells, and several cancer cell lines, and partly controls stem and cancer cell proliferation. It is not found in the differentiated cells of most adult tissues.
Telomerase ribonucleoprotein enzyme complex extends telomere length by adding hexameric repeats onto the telomeric ends of chromosomes, playing a role in proliferation and tumorigenesis.
Orbitron III shaking rotator offers variable speeds from 6 to 125 orbits per minute, a load range up to 20 lbs (9 kg), and an adjustable timer for up to 12 hours. Operating temperatures range from 4 to 55 C.
CellLytic Express cell lysis reagent is added directly to microbial culture media for non-denaturing protein extraction.
Wizard 2.0 Freeze Dryer Control System provides full process automation with complete recipe management and critical process alarms. Available on the Advantage, Genesis, Ultra, and Benchmark freeze dryers, Wizard controls single or multiple refrigeration compressor applications.
