NorthernLights (from R&D Systems) fluorescent secondary antibodies and streptavidin conjugates are bright and resistant to photobleaching.
Lipofectamine LTX Reagent offers a solution for gene expression as it is a plasmid DNA-specific transfection reagent that can provide the same level of reproducible and efficient gene expression in a wide range of cell lines, including primary and disease-related cells. Lipofectamine LTX Reagent is synthesised from 100% animal origin-free components, making it easy to validate the absence of zoonotic diseases, such as BSE or viruses, in experiments or cell lines. A certificate of origin may be obtained.
In order to investigate the status and extent of protein ubiquitinylation, it is necessary to have available a range of antibodies capable of differentiating firstly between free ubiquitin and ubiquitin-protein conjugates and, secondly, between those that are monoubiquitinylated and those that are polyubiquitinylated.
The new MesenPRO RS Medium is a reduced serum (2%) medium specifically formulated to support the growth of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in culture. MesenPRO RS Medium consistently improves MSC expansion compared with conventional serum-supplemented media. Using MesenPRO RS Medium, MSCs can be expanded for multiple passages while maintaining their multi-potential phenotype (ie, differentiation into osteogenic, chondrogenic and adipogenic lineages).
Monash University home to largest monoclonal antibody production facility in the Southern Hemisphere05 July, 2007
Monash University has joined forces with international life sciences supply company Tecan to develop a new state-of-the-art monoclonal antibody production system at the University's Clayton campus.
The Screen-Wellâ„¢ Protease Inhibitor Library from BIOMOL International includes 53 known protease inhibitors on a single 96-well plate.
The AES Chemunex Masterclave 09 for culture media preparation features an extra large magnetic stirrer and high precision core temperature control. The Masterclave 09 lets users rapidly prepare 1-9 L of high quality culture media.
The number of people who have an adverse allergic reaction to latex is growing on a daily basis. And while there are synthetic options available, the bad news is that the favourable properties of natural rubber latex have yet to be replicated
Widespread consultation has begun in a review of the use and supply of chemicals of security concern to prevent their possible use in a terrorist incident.
Protecting workers and the surrounding environment from exposure to hazardous compounds poses an increasing challenge to pharmaceutical manufacturers as new and more potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) enter the processing pipeline, such as cytotoxic drugs to treat cancer.
Ansell's ThermaPrene combines the flexibility and chemical resistance of Neoprene and the heat resistance of a soft thermal liner. ThermaPrene can protect against intermittent contact with hot surfaces up to 200°C and is virtually unaffected by detergents and common cleaning solutions.
Corning Life Sciences has added 6, 12 and 24 well plates, 35, 60 and 100 mm style dishes and the 235 cm2 expanded surface flask to its CellBind Surface family of products. The CellBind surface improves consistency and provides more uniform cell attachment across well, dish and flask bottoms, allowing for higher cell yields.
