CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing utilizing chemically synthesized RNA
Dharmacon (part of GE Healthcare)

CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing using synthetic crRNA:tracrRNA or sgRNA is highly efficient and easy to use. Synthetic crRNA:tracrRNA is uniquely suited to in vitro and in vivo applications, in particular, DNA-free approach with Cas9 mRNA. Chemical synthesis of guide RNAs allows accurate and rapid production of arrayed crRNA libraries for high-confidence, loss-of-function screens.

Monitoring Bacterial Cell-to-Cell Communication “Quorum sensing” Using FLUOstar OPTIMA
BMG Labtech

Bacteria can monitor and respond to changes to environmental conditions via a cell density process known as quorum sensing. Bacteria use this process to monitor their community by producing, detecting and responding to low molecular mass signal molecules, called autoinducers. Effects on quorum sensing were investigated by measuring growth and bioluminescence of Vibrio fischeri. The FLUOstar OPTIMA was utilized to measure absorbance and luminescence in parallel.
