Invitrogen has launched a serum-free media (SFM) designed specifically to culture mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), or stem cells derived from bone marrow. Stempro MSC SFM is claimed to overcome many challenges in MSC culture. In concert, Invitrogen also launched two kits designed to allow the differentiation of MSCs to either adipocytes (fat cells) or osteocytes (bone cells).
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are one of the major classes of drug targets and an estimated 30-50% of all marketed drugs act on them. They are integral membrane receptors that transmit signals from various small molecules, peptides and lipids via G proteins where they affect many physiological functions in almost all organs.
PANalytical has introduced a series of petrochemical standard sets for X-ray fluorescence (XRF) multiscopy that make reliable and accurate calibration a simple, convenient and cost-effective procedure.
