Agilent Technologies has released a labelling and hybridisation kit that simplifies the protocol for running miRNA-profiling experiments on oligonucleotide microarrays.
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 Bio-Plex Pro human isotyping panel allows detection of IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, IgG4, IgA, IgE and IgM, in a single multiplex assay.
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.
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).
This GFP-certified apoptosis/necrosis detection system includes all the necessary reagents for determination of early and late stages of apoptosis as well as necrosis.
The CellKey 384 System is an impedance-based, label-free, high-throughput instrument for use in drug-discovery research.
Cayman’s p53 Transcription Factor Assay is a non-radioactive, sensitive method for detecting specific transcription factor DNA binding activity in nuclear extracts.
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 Microgen Path-Chek Listeria kit is a system for the detection ofListeria species from the environment. It is simple and safe to use in the field. Simply swab the surface and snap the swab tip into the Path-Check Listeria Detection tube and incubate.
Olympus has released PSA and fPSA assays for the Olympus AU3000i immunoassay analyser. The assays feature assay sensitivity of 0.015 µg/L. In the monitoring of patients after prostate cancer treatment, the sensitive PSA assay is suitable for the detection of recurrence of the disease.
The Fermiscan Test is a safe, non-invasive technology that utilises X-ray diffraction of hair fibres to screen and monitor women of all ages for breast cancer. The Fermiscan Test will be available for women in Australia in 2008 and Fermiscan is also commencing further clinical trials and regulatory approval processes in the US.
With just one swipe of the Drugwipe device users can detect the unseen presence of drugs in the workplace. The Drugwipe device provides a screening test for the presence of drugs in saliva, allowing detection of current and very recent drug use. The Drugwipe device reduces testing time, is user friendly, sampling is less intrusive and may be performed anywhere. Users will be able to perform random and point of incident testing.
The Beckman Coulter BioRAPTR FRD microfluidic workstation is available in two configurations - standalone and integrated with Beckman Coulter's PARADIGM Detection Platform, Biomek NXp liquid handler and BRT Robotic Transport. With the addition of the bioRAPTR low-volume workstation, Beckman Coulter's automation capabilities span the complete range of volumes, from tubes to microplates to 3458-well ChemLib plates.
