KBiosystems’ EFly2 Semi Automated Thermal microplate and microtube sealer is ideal for low to medium throughput laboratories that requires a reliable, consistent sealing system. Offering complete, versatility, the EFly2, will work with a wide range of plates for PCR, assay and compound storage microplates and can be used for standard and deep well microplates and tubes. The manually operated variants are operated via the display panel on the front of the machine and allow the ability to choose temperature and sealing time.
Key features: Operator Friendly – Easy to program and operator friendly Adaptable – The EFly2 works with a wide range of microplates and tube racks with plate stage inserts to allow use of more unusual microplate types. Versatile – Able to use all seal types across a large number of applications. Reliable – Engineered with robustness in mind Compact – Small footprint and very light to use as little space as possible on a workbench.
‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.Criminal Justice Alcohol Program Linked to Decreased Mortality Institute has announced that in the criminal justice alcohol program deaths dropped by 4.2 percent over six years.Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Individuals' Medical Histories Predicted by their Noncoding Genomes Researchers have found that analyzing mutations in regions of the genome that control genes can predict medical conditions such as hypertension, narcolepsy and heart problems.'Molecular Movie' Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments An international team of scientists led by the University of Liverpool has produced a 'structural movie' revealing the step-by-step creation of an important naturally occurring chemical in the body that plays a role in some cancers.Advancing Synthetic Biology Living systems rely on a dizzying variety of chemical reactions essential to development and survival. Most of these involve a specialized class of protein molecules — the enzymes.Preparing for Potential Zika Outbreaks Experts at the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) are developing tools to monitor the spread of the Zika virus and are conducting research to gather more solid data to better assess the risks associated with the infection. What do Banana Peels and Human Skin Have in Common? Human skin and banana peels have something in common: they produce the same enzyme when attacked. By studying fruit, researchers have come up with an accurate method for diagnosing the stages of this form of skin cancer. Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University. Counting Cancer-busting Oxygen Molecules Researchers from the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), an Australian Research Centre of Excellence, have shown that nanoparticles used in combination with X-rays, are a viable method for killing cancer cells deep within the living body.
