PrecisionAb Antibodies are a product line of rigorously tested primary antibodies validated for detection of endogenous proteins via western blot. Scientists have struggled with antibody unreliability for decades because manufacturing standards and quality control vary widely among vendors, targets, and even among antibody lots.
Affymetrix introduces GeneChip WT Pico Kit for gene expression array target preparation from as little as 100 pg of total RNA input. Working with as few as 10 cells, the new kit offers a high degree of flexibility and precision, enabling analyses of samples too small for other methods as well as the interrogation of small subpopulations of cells within larger samples.
AMSBIO has launched a new range of human exosomes to the regenerative medicine tools and technologies market. Derived from placental and adipose derived stem cells, to ensure consistent high quality, these new products are ideally suited for research involving wound healing, stem cell differentiation and tissue regeneration.
AB SCIEX introduced the AB SCIEX API 3200MD and 3200MD QTRAP LC/MS/MS systems— two devices that can be used to analyze trace levels of multiple compounds in human samples for diagnostic purposes. The 3200MD series is the first of a family of in vitro diagnostic devices that AB SCIEX plans to roll out.
Miniature, stepper driven valveless OEM Pumps from Fluid Metering Inc. (FMI) are ideal for low and micro-volume fluid control in medical diagnostic and clinical chemistry instrumentation.
Panlab’s Rota Rod provides an easy way to test the effects of drugs, brain damage, or diseases on motor coordination or fatigue resistance in rodents. The animal is placed in one of the rotating lanes of the Rota Road and the timer is started. Latency to fall (minutes and seconds) and rotational speed are automatically recorded.
The Echo qualified reservoir for the Echo 525 is a liquid handler source plate designed to enable convenient assay assembly and efficient large volume reagent transfers. The reservoir enables scientists performing genomic, proteomic and cell-based assays to reduce the use of costly reagents while achieving rapid fluid transfers.
Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. announced the launch of its CFX Automation System II, a robotic plate handler that enables high-throughput, walk-away real-time PCR automation for all Bio-Rad CFX Real-Time PCR Detection Systems. The new system is ideally suited to meet the high-throughput real-time PCR requirements of today’s drug discovery and screening workflows by facilitating hands-off, around-the-clock data generation and analysis.
Oxford Gene Technology (OGT) released a new microarray designed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of cancer research. The CytoSure Cancer +SNP array (4x180k) combines long oligo array comparative genomic hybridisation (aCGH) probes with fully validated single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) content.
The InnoScan Series of microarray scanners from from Arrayit. The 710 and 710AL are the next generation of microarray scanners and offer greater sensitivity and lower background, dynamic auto-focusing, 2-color fluorescence detection, 3 µm scan resolution, 3 minute scan times and complete software.
ZenBio, Inc. released a new GroPro Cell Culture Growth Supplement. The product line allows for culturing of primary cells and cell lines without the concern for transmission of bovine prions and xenogeneic reactions.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB), has introduced Sartoclear Dynamics, a clarification system featuring new single-use technology for harvesting mammalian cell cultures with high cell densities.
The SureScan Dx from Agilent Technologies Inc. is a microarray scanner indicated for use in a clinical laboratory environment when measuring fluorescence signals of labeled DNA or RNA targets hybridized to microarrays used as part of a validated diagnostic assay.
Pall Corporation offers the XRS 20 Bioreactor System, a bioreactor with unique agitation properties that incorporates a single-use, easy-to-use Allegro 3-D biocontainer. This next generation “rocker” bioreactor is designed for cultivation of mammalian cells in suspension culture.
