Promega has released the 6 x 5 LC-MS/MS Peptide Reference Mix, a novel reagent and software combination. The reagent monitors LC and MS parameters while the complementary software reports on instrument performance, as well as performance history.
An opinion piece in the journal Nature, representing over 100 antibody experts around the world, has called for a standardised approach to the creation and use of antibodies in research and therapeutics.
Biotech start-up Solvanix was launched this week with funding from the Medical Research Commercialisation Fund (MRCF). The aim of the company is to commercialise a technology for improving stability and reducing the aggregation (stickiness) of fully human antibodies - a side effect of their purification, concentration and storage for use as therapeutic drugs.
Antibody provider Cell Signaling Technology (CST) has entered into a strategic partnership to supply antibodies for use in Dako companion diagnostics products.
Itram Higiene has developed BioFinder, a product for the detection of biofilms in open surfaces and an effective tool for hygiene monitoring. The biofilm detection spray reacts in the presence of biofilms, so the user can easily visually identify if biofilm exists through a clear reaction to the product.
The gel permeation chromatography solvent recycler B/R 9600, from BR Instruments, enables users to save money and the environment. The product can recycle TCB (trichlorobenzene), HFIP (hexafluorolsopropanol), n-methylpyrolidone, THF (tetrahydrofuran) and many more solvents.
The CHROMagar C3GR supplement added to CHROMagar Orientation contributes to the rapid screening of Gram-negative C3GR-producing bacteria. The supplement combines species colour differentiation and a selectivity that allows the growth of microorganisms with the reduced susceptibility to third-generation cephalosporins.
The primary cilium acts as a sensory organelle that transfers information from the environment to the cell interior. Proteintech has over 70 antibodies recognising cilia-related proteins.
Starna's DNA Quality Control Standard is an easy-to-use liquid vial (1.5 mL) that provides the company's DNACON 260/280 reference material in a consumable format suitable for use in drop technology systems.
Thermo Scientific's Nunclon Sphera is a polymer-coated surface with very low-binding characteristics that is designed to allow many different cell types to grow in suspension consistently with virtually no cell attachment.
Rabbit monoclonal (RabMAb) antibodies offer the antigen recognition of the rabbit immune system combined with the specificity and consistency of a monoclonal, providing antibodies with good binding affinity and bioactivity in a wide variety of biological assays.
As part of the plastilab range (general-purpose labware), Kartell manufactures a series of polyethylene (PE) wash bottles for cleaning laboratory glassware and other laboratory equipment. The wash bottles are suitable for use with alcohols, acids, alkalis, aldehydes, esters and ketones, and comply with international standards making them safe for use with foodstuff.
bioCSL has commenced distribution of Immucor's Capture technology platform and reagents in Australia and New Zealand. Capture is antibody detection technology used in the crossmatching of blood used for transfusion.
