Porvair Sciences’ Chromatrap 96 HT is a 96-well chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assay plate based on the novel spin-column ChIP technology. It is essentially 96 separate Chromatrap spin-columns in one device designed to enable researchers to perform up to 96 ChIP experiments in parallel.
CRAIC Technologies introduced the 20/30 XL UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer, which is designed to non-destructively analyze microscopic features of very large samples when integrated into large scale sample handling machinery.
The Leica TCS SP8 STED 3X, a new 3-D STED system from Leica Microsystems, achieves resolutions below the diffraction limit in lateral as well as axial directions.
Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. launched the QX200 Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) system, the second generation of the company's ddPCR technology. The system is the only digital PCR system that works with EvaGreen and TaqMan hydrolysis probes (reagents that are used with the instrument) to provide users more flexibility in the design of their digital PCR experiments.
Enzo’s high-efficiency BioArray conversion kits for detection of 5-mC and 5-hmC modifications (Express DNA Methylation Kit, Blood & Tissue DNA Methylation Kit, and BioArray 5-hmC Methylation Kit) allow for resolution of single-nucleotide changes without the introduction of DNA damage.
Bio-Rad Laboratories announced the availability of its new ddPCR library quantification kit for Ion Torrent library preparation. Used with Bio-Rad’s QX200 Droplet Digital PCR system, the new kit provides researchers with the ability to precisely and directly measure amplifiable library concentrations.
Extending its portfolio of super-resolution microscopy products, Leica launched the Leica SR GSD 3D, a widefield system that offers 2D and 3D super-resolution imaging of molecules and cellular structures. Based on GSD (Ground State Depletion) or dSTORM technology, the widefield fluorescence microscope attains resolutions of down to 20 nm in the lateral and 50 nm in the axial direction.
Mystaire Misonix offers MY-PCR Prep workstations. MY-PCR Prep provides the molecular biology laboratory technician with a “personal cleanroom” for use in the amplification of DNA and RNA. Between amplifications, My-PCR Prep can be irritated with shortwave UV energy to denature potential contaminates and eliminate their ability to be amplified.
Porvair Sciences’ new generation Krystal glass bottom plates are precision manufactured using a proprietary process resulting in excellent light transmission and an ultra-flat optical plane (+/- 15µm). The complete range of 24-, 96- and 384-well Krystal glass bottom microplates is available sterilized for tissue culture to optimize cell growth or non-sterile for assay development.
The Hoefer PS600 is a 600-volt midrange power supply unit designed for electrophoresis and blotting techniques, including large format and high throughput applications.
The first 3D surgical microscopes from Leica Microsystems with TrueVision 3D technology inside are available to customers. By incorporating the digital smart 3D system inside select models of Leica Microsystems' surgical microscopes, the two companies have eliminated the need for a separate 3D cart.
Sage Science‘s Pippin Pulse electrophoresis power supply brings field inversion to your lab’s agarose gel apparatus.
Molecular Devices announced the launch of the ScanLater Western Blot Detection System. The system combines western blot membrane detection with a multimode microplate reader platform, eliminating the need to acquire a separate dedicated western blot system.
The GelDoc-It2 Imager from UVP aids in DNA analysis research by enabling easy image capture and fast, accurate analysis of gels.
Hamilton Robotics, as part of its co-marketing partnership with Illumina, is developing automated solutions for NGS sample preparation that reduce hands-on time, minimize operational variability, and deliver consistent results. Illumina is providing input on the protocols and assay performance.
