Biomatters has released version 5.0 of Geneious Pro, its powerful but user-friendly sequence analysis software. This upgrade allows full bacterial genome assembly for data generated by Illumina, 454, SOLiD, Helicos and other sequencers to be done on a desktop computer and features many improvements to visualise, browse and analyse the large volumes of data created with next-generation sequencing.
The latest version of the graphical and programmatic tool for computational systems biology and pharmacokinetics, SimBiology, provides new features and enhanced performance capabilities, including multiple dosing schemes, for pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) modelling and simulation of biological systems.
An innovative computational technique that draws on statistics, imaging and other disciplines has the capability to detect errors in sensitive technological systems ranging from satellites to laboratories to weather instruments.
Waters has become the exclusive distributor of Fusion Method Development software, developed by S-Matrix Corporation. The software works seamlessly with Waters Empower 2 chromatography data software (CDS) and Acquity UltraPerformance LC (UPLC) to automate liquid chromatographic method development according to quality-by-design (QbD) guidelines. Fusion not only greatly accelerates method development, it enables development of more robust methods which transfer successfully and withstand the test of repeated use.
The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has introduced an 8-channel, 12-bit, 10 kS/s multifunction USB DAQ module for testing, laboratory, student or training use. The USB-4702 is a specialised low-cost unit that has no casing whatsoever and is intended for users looking for basic functionality.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has released a full-featured LIMS that offers automated data management and is designed specifically for small to mid-sized laboratories. The recently released Thermo Scientific Watson LIMS offers enhanced functionality for large molecule bioanalysis in pharmaceutical and contract research organisation laboratories.
Dr Owen Maroney claims we can remember in a reversed universe and it's all to do with the heat coming from your computer.
Without some new science, the facts in this article cause us to wonder if Santa exists.
Automated microscopy enables the acquisition of high-resolution images at rates of one image per second and total numbers in the millions. These high rates pose a new challenge in cell biology: how to analyse the vast amounts of resulting data in a reasonable time frame?
Cerno Bioscience and Agilent Technologies have announced that they will jointly market Cerno’s MassWorks calibration software to Agilent gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MSD) ChemStation users.
DKSH has announced a distribution agreement with DNR Imaging, producer of UV imaging and camera systems for interpretation of diagnostic electrophoresis gels used in research and clinical diagnosis, complementing the electrophoresis instrumentation and consumables.
