Venom Science Cobra Venom Detection Kit

20 November, 2009 by

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.

BD Kaleidoscope reagent and dye expansion program

20 November, 2009 by

The BD Kaleidoscope reagent and dye expansion program includes nearly 200 fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies for flow cytometry

Biomatrica/Qiagen QIAsafe DNA blood products

20 November, 2009 by

Biomatrica and Qiagen have launched QIAsafe DNA Blood Products, the first dry blood storage available on a matrix based on Biomatrica’s SampleMatrix technology.

Plug-in detection cartridges

30 September, 2009 by

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.

Ion analysis by capillary electrophoresis kits

09 June, 2009 by

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.

Protein carbonyl assay kit

05 June, 2009 by

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.

Microbial identification

05 June, 2009 by

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.

Human isotyping assay

08 April, 2009 by

The Bio-Plex Pro human isotyping panel allows detection of IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, IgG4, IgA, IgE and IgM, in a single multiplex assay.

Reagent platforms

08 April, 2009 by

The bead-based technology of the AlphaScreen and AlphaLISA reagent platforms makes them suitable for measuring even large and complex molecules.


08 April, 2009 by

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.

Mutagenicity assay kits

08 April, 2009 by

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.

miRNA profiling kit

08 April, 2009 by

Agilent Technologies has released a labelling and hybridisation kit that simplifies the protocol for running miRNA-profiling experiments on oligonucleotide microarrays.

Acute phase assays

08 April, 2009 by

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.

Aflatoxin test kits

06 April, 2009 by

Graintec supplies rapid aflatoxin test kits for pet food and food manufacturers.

HER2 assay kit

06 April, 2009 by

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).
