QIAGEN has announced the implementation of the PAXgene Blood ccfDNA Tube with Clinical Genomics' Colvera colorectal cancer (CRC) recurrence assay, enabling blood to be drawn and stored for several days before testing.
US scientists have used CRISPR to edit human embryos, removing a mutation linked to a heritable heart condition.
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.
Scientists have identified important processes that create cancer-causing mutations by studying the genomes of more than 1000 tumours.
Scientists in the US have reportedly modified the genes of human embryos using CRISPR.
The latest research by a team from Cornell University has found that current approaches to gene drives may need to be rethought.
The GFP-CERTIFIED Apoptosis/Necrosis Detection System from Enzo Life Sciences was specifically designed for use with GFP-expressing cell lines, as well as cells expressing blue or cyan fluorescent proteins.
The checking of raw materials and the identification of critical points during food processing are of vital importance to avoid hidden allergens and cross-contaminations. Zeulab offers appropriate allergen detection tests for each food business.
DNA molecules can be damaged by exposure to chemicals, UV light, radical oxygen and radiation. If left unrepaired, this damage could lead to genomic instability and cell death.
Life sciences company Thermo Fisher Scientific and research centre SRI International have announced a collaboration to enhance small molecule research.
The cellZscope2 from nanoAnalytics is a device for measuring the transepithelial/endothelial impedance of cell layers under physiological conditions. Easy to operate and with a broad range of applications, it is particularly suitable for studying the influence of substances such as drugs, toxins, etc, on the barrier function of cell layers.
The world of genomics just got a whole lot richer, with scientists completing sequencing for not one but two crop genomes over the past week.
A Victorian government-commissioned study has confirmed that the eradication of an established pest species can be extremely resource-intensive and costly, and recommends investment in novel tools such as innovative monitoring techniques and improved prevention strategies.
