Precision Blue real-time PCR dye from Bio-Rad Laboratories makes it easier for researchers to set up real-time PCR (qPCR) experiments.
The FlashTaq Hot-Start Taq DNA Polymerase from Empirical Bioscience is a chemically-modified Taq polymerase designed to reduce non-specific amplification in PCR.
EMD Millipore, the Life Science division of Merck KGaA of Darmstadt, Germany, launched the EZ-Fit Filtration Unit, a ready-to-use, disposable filtration device for bioburden testing. The system is more efficient than traditional methods, resulting in increased reliability and streamlined workflows.
Genevac reports that its HT Series II Evaporator using the Fast Lyophilisation, or LyoSpeed process is enabling a growing number of pharmaceutical labs to routinely dry HPLC fraction samples to a powder form, such that the samples can then be accurately weighed, sub-sampled, and redissolved.
Phenomenex introduces the Kinetex C8 5-micron core-shell HPLC column. The used C8 phase delivers retention for the analysis of hydrophobic and “sticky” compounds. In combination with Kinetex Core-Shell Technology, this phase gives analysts a high-performance reversed phase alternative for HPLC methods.
Electric Ice Trays for Life Sciences from tecaLAB are an affordable option for easy bench top cooling. The compact Peltier design allows for maintenance free, constant cooling. Simply plug it in and cool to as low as 25C below ambient.
Kinetex EVO C18 columns from Phenomenex Inc. are the latest advancement in ultra-high performance HPLC columns.
Thermo Fisher Scientific introduced a new HPLC and UHPLC column for glycan analysis. This new column offers extremely high-resolution separations based on charge, isomerism, and size and is designed to facilitate both high resolution glycan profile characterization and quantification.
Torrey Pines Scientific offers the EchoTherm HPLC Column Heater Model CO20. The temperature range is from room temperature to 90.0°C readable and settable to 0.1°C. The PID temperature control software regulates temperatures to ±0.1°C. Temperature accuracy and stability are ±0.1ºC with a stable temperature indicator lamp on the front panel that lights when the target temperature is stable to within ±0.2ºC.
The NEXTflex Rapid DNA-Seq Kit from Bioo Scientific enables construction of sequencing-ready libraries in less than two hours, with a flexible input range from 1 ng to 1 µg of DNA. A bead-based, gel-free size selection protocol and the availability of up to 96 unique adapter barcodes facilitate high-throughput applications.
Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, through a partnership with Illumina, offers automated methods to improve processes and throughput in next generation sequencing (NGS) sample preparation. Under the agreement, Beckman Coulter will use its experience in automated NGS sample preparation to develop, distribute and support automation for Illumina’s TruSeq and Nextera sample preparation kits and Illumina will provide technical expertise on chemistry and protocols.
Cambridge Epigenetix launched TrueMethyl kits. TrueMethyl provides quantitative, accurate and repeatable single-base resolution sequencing of the modified bases hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) and methylcytosine (5-mC).
Bio-Rad Laboratories offers a ddPCR library quantification kit for Illumina TruSeq sample preparation protocols. Used with Bio-Rad's QX100 Droplet Digital PCR system, the kit offers researchers a way to precisely and directly measure amplifiable library concentrations.
The ZOE Fluorescent Cell Imager from Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. is one of the first cell imaging systems able to deliver the power of microscopy in a system that is as easy to use as a tablet.
The new WITec Suite software is now available for all WITec imaging systems. It was specifically developed to acquire and process large data volumes of large-area, high-resolution measurements and 3-D imaging while providing speed, performance and usability.
