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.
BioControl has released the Lightning MVP ICON, an instrument and software platform that combines HACCP and hygiene monitoring with powerful program management capabilities.
How do you alter the inside of a closed bag without opening it? It’s not a trick question, as researchers in Braunschweig, Germany, have achieved just that.
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.
Affymetrix USB has developed High-Throughput (HT) ExoSAP-IT for enzymatic PCR cleanup. Specifically designed for the requirements of high throughput automated platforms and multichannel pipettes, the reagent has both a longer lifetime at higher temperatures and a decreased viscosity for robotic pipetting.
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.
The VWR PureStep multi-layered, adhesive-coated mat removes dirt and dust from foot traffic and wheels prior to entry into a critical manufacturing environment. A consistent coat weight of adhesive produces a higher-performing mat without excessive tack issues.
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.
