Conforms to the European directive for in vitro diagnostic medical devices 98/79/EC in combination with the LightCycler® 2.0 Instrument.
The LightCycler® Software 4.1 is an update to LightCycler® Software 4.05. The only difference between this updated version and LightCycler® Software 4.05 is that Version 4.1 can be operated on Windows XP. It integrates all software modules required to perform and analyze any type of experiment using the LightCycler® 2.0 Instrument. Opening new horizons in the field of data analysis, the LightCycler® Software 4.1 maintains and expands the analysis modules for absolute quantification and melting curve analysis. Additionally, the new software integrates a dedicated relative quantification module for mono- and dual-color experiments. A module for genotyping by melting curve analysis is also part of the package. Most analysis modules automate the analysis of internal controls. The LightCycler® Software 4.1, as well as LightCycler® Software 4.05, offers a new quality of data management, user management, and security.
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.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.Custom Tuning Knobs to Turn Off Any Gene Factory managers can improve productivity by telling workers to speed up, slow down or stop doing tangential tasks while assembling widgets. Unfortunately for synthetic biologists attempting to produce pharmaceuticals, microbes don’t respond to direction like human personnel.Unique Mechanism for a High-Risk Leukemia Researchers uncovered the aberrant mechanism underlying a notoriously treatment-resistant acute lymphoblastic leukemia subtype; findings offer lessons for understanding all cancers.Genetically Mapping the Most Lethal E.Coli Strains New approach could lead to fewer deaths, and new treatments. The Spice of Life Scientists discover important genetic source of human diversity.Cytoskeleton Crew Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
