Venom Science has developed a Cobra Venom Detection Kit to assist in tracing the illegal use of cobra venom by racing trainers, previously difficult to detect. The test involves using specially treated venom antibodies which are labelled with markers that highlight the cobra venom when they come into contact with it.
The BD Kaleidoscope reagent and dye expansion program includes nearly 200 fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies for flow cytometry
Biomatrica and Qiagen have launched QIAsafe DNA Blood Products, the first dry blood storage available on a matrix based on Biomatrica’s SampleMatrix technology.
Beckman Coulter has introduced four detection cartridges for its modular plate reader, the Paradigm Detection Platform, that add new capabilities for widely used fluorescence and luminescence applications.
Beckman Coulter has introduced two kits for anion and cation analysis on the company’s P/ACE MDQ System. Capillary electrophoresis (CE) analysis of ions performed using these kits delivers efficient, rapid separations with small sample requirements and short preparation times. The kits incorporate a dynamic coating technology that claims to produce more consistent migration times than other approaches.
Cayman Chemical’s Protein Carbonyl Assay Kit is a colorimetric assay for the measurement of oxidised proteins. Protein samples are derivatised by making use of the reaction between 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH) and protein carbonyls.
The RapID range of microbial identification systems is easy to use and allows the accurate identification of a comprehensive range of microorganisms in 4 hours.
The Bio-Plex Pro human isotyping panel allows detection of IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, IgG4, IgA, IgE and IgM, in a single multiplex assay.
The bead-based technology of the AlphaScreen and AlphaLISA reagent platforms makes them suitable for measuring even large and complex molecules.
Novagen has introduced multiplex immunoassays for the bead-based Luminex xMAP Technology platform. The range of immuno-assays allows the multiplex quantification of phosphorylated proteins, giving researchers the opportunity to examine changes in cellular signalling that reflect disease states or various drug treatments.
The Ames II, Ames MPF 98/100, Ames MPF 1535 and Ames MPF 1537 kits can be used to perform the Ames test in the liquid 384-well microplate format with a colorimetric read-out.
Agilent Technologies has released a labelling and hybridisation kit that simplifies the protocol for running miRNA-profiling experiments on oligonucleotide microarrays.
Bio-Plex Pro human acute phase assays can deliver accurate and reproducible measurements of nine commonly studied acute phase markers: a-2-Macroglobulin, CRP, ferritin, fibrinogen, haptoglobin, procalcitonin, SAA, serum amyloid P (SAP) and tissue plasminogen activator. A snapshot of panel performance is demonstrated by representative parallelism and linearity of sample dilution in normal human serum and plasma.
Graintec supplies rapid aflatoxin test kits for pet food and food manufacturers.
The FDA-approved Thermo Scientific Spot-Light HER2 CISH Kit is designed to allow users to perform an HER2 assay analogous to routine immunohistochemistry (IHC) that provides reliable gene status information and improves on the results obtained by fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH).
