Bio-Rad Laboratories offers TGX FastCast acrylamide and TGX Stain-Free FastCast acrylamide kits, which provide handcast gel users access to Bio-Rad’s TGX gel chemistry, previously available only in precast gels. The TGX FastCast kits allow users to hand cast polyacrylamide gels with fast run times, efficient protein transfers, and consistent, reproducible results.
Researchers have developed an easy way to put bacteria under a molecular lock and key in order to contain its accidental spread. The method involves a series of genetic mutations that render the microbe inactive unless the right molecule is added to enable its viability.
Huntington’s disease attacks the part of the brain that controls movement, destroying nerves with a barrage of toxicity, yet leaves other parts relatively unscathed.
Research shows that certain T cells, immune cells that fight infection, can help to control influenza infections by targeting a core structural protein common to all strains of influenza .
Women under chronic stress have significantly lower levels of klotho, a hormone that regulates aging and enhances cognition, researchers have found in a study comparing mothers of children on the autism spectrum to low-stress controls.
Scientists have identified a single blood protein that may indicate the development of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) years before symptoms appear, a disorder that has been associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.
DDT was a wonder pesticide, which turned the tide on everything from bed bugs to malaria-carrying mosquitoes during the 20th century. But even after its health and environmental effects were acknowledged and its agricultural use was banned in 1972, its toxic legacy continues, according to a new study.
Chocolate-lovers rejoice: new research says eating up to 100g of chocolate every day is linked to lower cardiovascular risks such as heart disease and stroke.
PerkinElmer launched the LabChip GX Touch and GXII Touch automated electrophoresis systems. The LabChip platform’s key feature is automation of conventional gel electrophoresis, eliminating the need for manual sample preparation. The LabChip GX Touch and GXII Touch reduce hands-on time and simplifying data generation via a user friendly operator touch screen.
Rich, creamy, nutritious and now cancer fighting. New research reveals that molecules derived from avocados could be effective in treating a form of cancer.
Chemists have invented the first practical, scalable method for synthesizing jiadifenolide, a plant-derived molecule that may have powerful brain-protecting properties.
A MERS outbreak has infected about 150 people in South Korea, after a businessman apparently brought the virus back from the Middle East. Authorities are scrambling to control the spread of the illness, known fully as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. But a vaccine is not among their tools – since it doesn’t yet exist, and is probably not close to being developed.
A bacterium that is the most common cause of pneumonia — a leading cause of death worldwide — can damage DNA in lung cells, a new study has shown.
Six scientists who were living under a dome on the slopes of a dormant Hawaii volcano for eight months to simulate life on Mars have emerged from isolation.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it has approved an implantable device to help reduce Parkinson’s disease symptoms and a movement disorder known as essential tremor.
