The EpiQuik MeDIP Ultra Kit is a complete set of optimised reagents to enrich and capture methylated DNA fragments in a convenient microplate-based format. The methylated DNA that is enriched with the kit can be used for various downstream applications, including qualitative and quantitative PCR (MeDIP-PCR), microarray (MeDIP-chip) and especially sequencing (MeDIP-seq).
Cosmo Bio has introduced Easy-Western (EZW), a primary antibody detection reagent kit for Western blots. The kit is based on multi-antibody detection (MAD) technology.
Promega has announced ViaFect Transfection Reagent, a tool for efficient DNA transfer into a wide variety of cell lines, including challenging suspension cells and stem-cell-derived lines. The product allows researchers to develop transfection-based assays in the cell line most relevant for their biology of interest.
For those facilities performing next-generation sequencing (NGS), Affymetrix USB has developed an NGS library prep kit. The company created a kit to produce high-performing, efficient, chimera-free NGS libraries to attain peak performance on the Illumina sequencing platform, with only 100 ng of input needed.
B/R Instrument offers a variety of automatic systems for recycling xylene, alcohol, formalin and xylene substitutes. Simply put the used solvent into place, push start and let the solvent recycler do the rest.
Toku-E’s Dust-Free SDS is a pellet form of SDS specifically designed to prevent aerosolised dust when preparing SDS solutions.
An increased risk of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) has been observed in recent years among individuals with occupational exposure to benzene, a chemical carcinogen linked to blood cancers. A study released in the journal Cancer set out to determine the risk of NHL for those living near benzene release sites.
Roche has launched metabolite-testing reagent sets to determine the concentration of iron and phosphate, two parameters relevant for cell growth and productivity during fermentation processes.
The SmartFlare detection reagent is a novel probe capable of detecting specific mRNAs and miRNAs in live, intact cells. The technology allows for carrier-free cellular endocytosis of the reagent, followed by detection and relative quantitative analysis of RNA levels.
Roche has launched its SeqCap EZ Pure Capture Bead Kit for supporting target enrichment workflows prior to DNA sequencing. The kit is designed to provide sensitive and robust methods for the capture and purification of DNA sample libraries, enabling high-quality targeted sequencing results.
List Biological Laboratories provides native pertussis toxin lyophilised in buffer (Cat No 180) or pure water (Cat No 181), as well as a genetically inactivated form of pertussis toxin, Pertussis Toxin Mutant (Cat No 184). The protein may be used as antigens and as carrier proteins for other antigens.
Recent studies indicate high-molecular weight (HMW) adiponectin oligomers result in the most biologically active form of the protein. Recombinant Human Adiponectin from Enzo Life Sciences has been shown to have several advantages.
Supercritical Fluid Technologies (SFT) develops innovative solutions for demanding supercritical fluid separation, reaction chemistry and high-pressure applications. The SFT-110 SFE is an entry-level system which can be used for a variety of applications, from routine analytical work to basic process development.
Taking their inspiration from nature, scientists at the University of New South Wales have developed a new method for carrying out chemical reduction - an industrial process used to produce fuels and chemicals that are vital for modern society.
Scientex has acquired exclusive distribution for Australia and New Zealand for Supercritical Fluid Technologies (SFT), a supplier of solutions for separation and material processing applications.
