A combination of off-the-shelf quantum dot nanotechnology and a smartphone camera soon could allow doctors to identify antibiotic-resistant bacteria in just 40 minutes.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched the Applied Biosystems QuantStudio 6 and 7 Pro Real-Time PCR Systems. Capabilities of the smart qPCR instruments include facial authentication, hands-free operation with voice-activated commands, radio-frequency identification (RFID)-enabled plate scanning, and quick access to service and support with a single touch.
BioVision's Jade One-Step QRT PCR Kit contains all the necessary reagents for both reverse transcription and PCR amplification to occur in a single qPCR reaction tube.
Advances in biosensor technology are expected to limit the spread of HIV and other STIs, according to market research firm IDTechEx.
AmpliSeq for Illumina enables fast, robust, targeted library prep for all Illumina sequencers.
The QX200 Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) System from Bio-Rad provides absolute quantification of nucleic acids. It is particularly useful for detection of targets in complex backgrounds or for monitoring subtle changes or low nucleic acid abundance not easily detected/quantified with traditional qPCR.
The Mastercycler X50 PCR cycler is a suitable tool for research in molecular biology. Block temperature control and regulation enable optimisation, while the adaptable user management and extensive documentation capabilities give peace of mind to laboratories working or conforming to set standards.
The Genetic Signatures Flavivirus detection kit could be used to help prevent the spread of serious infectious diseases such as Zika and West Nile virus.
AirClean Systems' AC600 Series PCR workstations are designed for the manipulation and amplification of DNA and RNA, reducing risk of sample contamination.
The Assurance GDS (Genetic Detection System) offers a Cronobacter species result in 26 h for infant formula, powdered milk and environmental samples.
Veriflow ACB is a method for rapid detection of Alicyclobacillus.
Bioline's MyTaq Plant-PCR Kit is a ready-to-use 2x mix for fast, specific and direct PCR from a wide range of plant leaf samples.
Scientists have developed a handheld instrument, about the size of a smartphone, that detects Ebola quickly and could be used in remote locations.
Enzo Life Sciences has developed a range of patented DNA and RNA labelling chemistries for genomics research and development. These include RNA and DNA amplification kits, as well as labelling systems and modified nucleotides for creating biotin- or fluorophore-labelled nucleic acid probes for a variety of applications and detection platforms.
