Dutch researchers have grown their own kidney tubules derived from human kidney adult stem cells and urine cells in microfluidic chips.
Lonza has expanded its hepatocytes portfolio characterisation with the addition of Verified for Spheroids Human Hepatocytes, which are pre-screened for their ability to promote rapid spheroid formation in cell culture.
An important but commonly overlooked aspect of image-based assay design for high content analysis (HCA) is the use of appropriate controls.
Lonza has launched DonorPlex Hepatocytes, a line of high-quality cryopreserved pooled donor suspension hepatocytes. Researchers within DMPK and ADME laboratories can now benefit from this robust product offering for studying the hepatic metabolism of drugs.
Cayman Chemical's Lysosomal Staining Kit (Red Fluorescence) is a convenient tool for imaging lysosomes in live cells. The kit utilises a red fluorescent dye that permeates the lysosomes based on pH gradient.
The ABP Biosciences EasyProbe ActinGreen 488 Stain is a selective, high-affinity F-actin probe that is conjugated to a bright, photostable, green-fluorescent Andy Fluor 488 dye.
Grace Bio-Labs' Silicone Isolators allow researchers to isolate specimens using removable hydrophobic barriers. They may be used to isolate cells grown in culture dishes or separate multiple specimens affixed to microscope slides.
Aviva's Immunohistochemistry Kit is intended to provide a simple and convenient detection system for immunohistochemical staining. As such, the kit can be used for the identification of specific constituents in tissue sections or immobilised cells.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched its Invitrogen TaqMan and SYBR Green Fast Advanced Cells-to-CT Kits. Users will experience a fast reverse transcriptase reaction and have access to a qPCR master mix system fully optimised to improve sensitivity to detect rare transcripts.
Corning Dissolvable Microcarriers are designed to simplify cell harvest, separation and concentration processes. They arrive pre-sterilised and pre-coated with the user's selected surface coating of either denatured collagen or Synthemax to enhance cell attachment.
GeneCopoeia offers premade cancer cell lines carrying diverse gene mutations commonly seen in tumour biomarkers, including EGFR, KRAS and BRAF in the MAPK pathway.
The cellZscopeE, from NanoAnalytics, measures the TER and the capacitance of cell layers under physiological conditions.
The S3e Cell Sorter is an automated cell sorter with real-time monitoring and smart features equipped with up to two lasers and four fluorescence detectors plus forward-scatter and side-scatter detectors. The compact system, with dimensions of only 70 x 65 x 65 cm, includes onboard fluidics and a temperature control system.
The ZE5 Cell Analyzer is a flow cytometer that gives users the flexibility to run up to 30-parameter experiments and the convenience of an integrated universal sample loader that accommodates any sample tube or plate format.
Kirkstall's Quasi Vivo system consists of interconnected cell-culture chambers and a peristaltic pump to create a continuous flow of media over cells.
