Mercury poisoning through artisanal and small-scale gold mining is increasing — but Dr Justin Chalker believes that chemists can provide cheap and effective solutions to curb the damage.
Advanced Analytical Technology's line of High Sensitivity Fragment Analysis Kits for its Fragment Analyzer Automated Capillary Electrophoresis System can measure the size and concentration of the three common cfDNA fragments using only 2 mL of sample.
EpiGentek has released a monoclonal antibody that is specific to Staphylococcus aureus Cas9 (SaCas9) and enables easy and specific monitoring of gene editing processes.
CHROMagar COL-APSE is a sensitive and specific medium for the selective growth of colistin-resistant bacterial pathogens.
Fertility group Genea has announced an updated version of its culture medium Gems, which is claimed to result in more high-grade embryos per IVF cycle than traditional products.
Abcam has combined the advantages of its RabMAb rabbit monoclonals with recombinant technology to deliver high-performance antibodies.
ProSci's Risk-Free Antibody Sets consist of several monoclonal antibodies (20 µg each) against a single target, allowing selection of the best clone for specific applications. Antibodies were developed using recombinant proteins expressed in mammalian cells to best recognise the native proteins.
Scientists at the University of Leeds have developed a self-disinfecting device called Surfaceskins.
Avanti Polar Lipids' glycerolipids enable the study of lipid droplets (LDs). LDs can be found in most eukaryotic cells and are organelles that store lipids as reservoirs of metabolic energy and membrane lipid precursors.
Enzo's HIGHDEF chromogens are substrate-chromogen systems designed to be used for immunohistochemistry or in situ hybridisation with alkaline phosphatase (AP) or horseradish peroxidase (HRP).
Antibodies displaying an agonist or antagonist activity (functional grade antibodies) are powerful tools for mimicking or blocking physiological functions in vitro and in vivo. AdipoGen Life Sciences offers an extensive range of functional antibodies (FuncAbs).
Vector Laboratories introduces the VectaFluor Duet kit, offering convenient, ready-to-use immunofluorescence double labelling. The kit is suitable for use with a wide range of frozen and FFPE tissue samples, combining primary and secondary antibodies to streamline workflow.
