How to raise antibody standards and improve reproducibility

Supplied by Abcam Australia Pty Ltd on 18 April, 2017

Currently 70% of researchers fail to reproduce experiments. With so much research built on previous work, our scope for scientific discovery is significantly limited.


9 steps to validate your life science storage

Supplied by Vaisala Oyj on 06 March, 2017

Good manufacturing practice regulators in Australia have sharpened their focus on life science warehouse storage and distribution practices. Regulatory thinking has shifted from quality-by-test to quality-by-design systems with emphasis on the level of risk to product quality and patient safety.


Monitoring with mean kinetic temperature in GxP environments

Supplied by Vaisala Oyj on 14 February, 2017

Regulatory bodies in drug manufacturing and distribution have long been working together to create standards for temperature monitoring that will ensure the quality of drugs, devices and biotechnology. The mean kinetic temperature (MKT) value has been identified as a potential tool for evaluating the impact of temperature on product quality.


The solution for a seamless quantitative bioanalysis

Supplied by SCIEX Australia Pty Ltd on 11 May, 2016

High selectivity is a critical element of successful quantitative bioanalysis. Recent technology advances have increased selectivity well beyond its previous gold standard — providing bioanalytical scientists with new dimensions and tools with which to work.


Continuous environmental monitoring — compliance and best practice tips

Supplied by Vaisala Oyj on 15 February, 2016

Automated environmental monitoring systems are now a critical element in many laboratory operations. To reduce your risk of adulterated product and missing data, ongoing system maintenance is essential. This is easily achieved by integrating the software-based system into your own organisation's quality system.


Protective solutions for glove allergies

Supplied by Ansell Healthcare on 27 January, 2016

Wearing glove products can cause adverse skin reactions, ranging from irritant contact dermatitis to severe allergic responses such as anaphylaxis.


The ultimate guide to hand protection in life sciences

Supplied by Ansell Healthcare on 24 November, 2015

Hand protection is rarely a one size fits all, especially in the life sciences. Whether hands need to be protected from hazards or products require a complete barrier, hand protection requires careful selection.


Advantages of Wavelength Scanning in Fluorescence and Absorbance Assays

Supplied by PerkinElmer on 02 June, 2015

EnVision® Multilabel Plate Reader, widely used in biological assay studies across the field and available in a number of configurations, incorporates monochromator technology in its two options. Absorbance Monochromator option is capable of performing absorbance assays while Fluorescence Intensity Monochromator option can be used for both absorbance and fluorescence intensity assays (quad monochromator design).


Gene expression and miRNA data analysis

11 December, 2012

Automated analytical pipelines that are modular and flexible, combined with the use of standardised file formats, can facilitate miRNA and whole transcriptome data analyses. This white paper discusses methods and bioinformatics tools that can be logically connected to create such automated pipelines from raw sequences to statistical reporting and mapped counts assigned to each gene or miRNA.

Flow cytometric chromosome classification

15 May, 2009

Flow cytometric chromosome classification has been routinely used in the analysis of mammalian karyotypes as well as to assess chromosomal abnormalities. Download this tech paper for more information on how highly purified fractions of chromosomes can be isolated rapidly from the labelled chromosomes using a cell sorter.


Assessing yeast viability

05 February, 2009

Microorganisms such as yeast are used in many biotechnology applications including genetic engineering, vaccine development and the production of food. This Tech Paper presents an accurate and rapid method for assessing the viability of yeast using a flow cytometric approach.


Assessing bacterial viability

05 February, 2009

Assessment of bacterial viability is crucial to many applications ranging from the production of food and medicine to environmental monitoring. Download this Tech Paper to learn about an assessment approach using flow cytometric analysis.
