ViroStat has released a broadly reactive monoclonal antibody that reacts with many Enteroviruses. This new pan-reactive monoclonal antibody is positive for all 27 Enteroviruses tested to-date. ViroStat has also released specific monoclonal antibodies to EV70 (conjunctivitis) and EV71 (hand, foot and mouth disease).
Bruker introduced new High-Definition capabilities in proteomics and biomarker research. Patented low-noise Captivespray nanoBooster ionization coupled with high-speed digitization Qq-TOF technology and steered by intelligent acquisition software defines complex samples sharply.
Beckman Coulter Life Sciences received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and an Import Medical Device Registration Certificate from the China Food and Drug Administration for the in vitro diagnostic use of the Navios flow cytometry system.
VersaComp Antibody Capture Bead kits from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences are designed to set compensation for multicolor flow cytometry experiments by allowing researchers to utilize the same reagents used in their experiments.
The Muse Cell Analyzer from EMD Millipore uses multiparametric fluorescent detection of individual cells via microcapillary flow technology, enabling highly sensitive and rapid measurement of cell parameters using minimal cell numbers—in a smaller footprint than typical benchtop cell analyzers and standard flow cytometers.
Realtime Stain from Biophoretics is a single step coomassie like pre-electrophoresis protein stain that allows visualizing the separation as it occurs; in real time. The stain irreversibly binds amine groups coloring the proteins deep blue with little to no gel background; providing detection sensitivity as low as 50ng.
The Attune Acoustic Focusing Flow Cytometer from Life Technologies Corporation is designed to deliver higher sensitivity. The cytometer can maintain precise alignment, even at sample rates of up to 1 mL/minute. Alternatively, the cytometer has a slower rate to collect more photons when analyzing dim signals, which translates to better separation and better clarity of results.
BD Biosciences, a segment of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), offers the BD LSRFortessa X-20 Cell Analyzer. The analyzer delivers high-performance multicolor analysis with a compact footprint measuring 30" x 29" (76.2 X 73.7 cm) and a height of 30" (76.2 cm).
The Olympus FluoView FVMPE-RS, a dedicated multiphoton microscope system, enables high-precision, ultra-fast scanning and stimulation, allowing researchers to see deep within specimens, take measurements at the highest speeds and capture images.
Aspect Imaging offers the M2 3D MR-based histology system for in vivo and ex vivo toxicological imaging. The system is a compact, high-performance MRI instrument for high-throughput in vivo and ex vivo imaging of pre-clinical samples.
The IKA shaker family has two new additions: KS 3000 i and KS 3000 ic incubator shakers.
Bioresearch equipment provider Labnet International launched a new addition to the company’s constant temperature equipment line with the release of the new AccuTherm Microtube Shaking Incubator.
The Thermo Scientific Heracell i CO2 incubator features variable oxygen control. Ideal for advanced applications in the area of stem cell research, regenerative and personalized medicine and other protocols that necessitate reduced oxygen concentrations, the incubator models are also available for hypoxic experimentation where oxygen levels above atmospheric levels are required.
Torrey Pines Scientific announces its new EchoTherm stackable/programmable vibration free chilling incubators for protein crystallography and other life science uses. The incubators are 27 liter capacity and Peltier-based for heating and chilling.
ELISA Kit for the Quantification of a Novel APP Cleavage Fragment Associated with Alzheimer’s DiseaseFebruary 14, 2014 2:10 pm | Comments
Enzo offers a high sensitivity APP ΔC31 ELISA Kit; a quantitative ELISA for Alzheimer’s research. Unlike the more familiar β-amyloid and tau fibrillar pathway leading to amyloid plaques and tangles, APP ΔC31 reveals an alternative, unique pro-apoptotic mechanism leading to Alzheimer’s disease.
