Sartorius Stedim Biotech's ambr 15 cell culture Generation 2 replicates laboratory-scale bioreactor performance at the microscale (10–15 mL) and controls up to 48 single-use bioreactor cultures in parallel.
Live Cell Imaging in the microscopy world is constantly evolving as researchers search for techniques to elucidate further mysteries of the human body.
Jellagen introduces its Jellyfish Collagen 3D Scaffolds, enabling researchers to culture their cells in a way that mimics 3D living organisms.
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.
