The Gecko Microplate & Petri Barcode Labeller is designed to deal with the day to day needs of either a high throughput or medium to low throughput lab. With a small footprint allowing limited bench space to be used, the Gecko is a versatile and robust instrument. With a Z-axis movement meaning that no adaptors are required and all label sizes able to be used the Gecko is a versatile, robust and reliable instrument. The Gecko uses either a 300dpi or 600dpi Zebra or Cab printer which is supplied as standard with the system and prints up to six fields (bar codes and human readable) per label. The label can be applied to one or all sides of the microplate and can withstand temperatures of -800C to 1000C. KBiosystems Gecko applies the label then verifies it using a mounted barcode reader before releasing the plate to give the end user full confidence. The data sources are numerous and can be comma-or tab delimited files and spread sheets, 3rd party application driven, pre-printed (sample feed and supply) and with an ODBC compliant LIMS.
The Gecko is easily integrated with stacking robots/stackers from KBiosystems as well as other systems and also be integrated within any OEM plate supply provider. The Gecko is the ideal printing and labelling solution in the market today with the added reassurance of dealing directly with the manufacturer.
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.Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.Visualizing a Cancer Drug Target at Atomic Resolution Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers were able to view, in atomic detail, the binding of a potential small molecule drug to a key protein in cancer cells.Honey’s Potential to Save Lives The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years. 3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling. Cytoskeleton Crew Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.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. Valvena, GSK Sign New R&D Collaboration Valneva to supply process development services for EB66® -based Influenza vaccines. Light Signals from Living Cells Fluorescent protein markers delivered under high pressure.Cellular 'Relief Valve' A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.
