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.
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.Improving Regenerative Medicine Lab-created stem cells may lack key characteristics, UCLA research finds.Muscles on-a-Chip This study may help explain why stem cell-based therapies have so far shown limited benefits for heart attack patients in clinical trials.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. Therapeutic Approach Gives Hope for Multiple Myeloma A new therapeutic approach tested by a team from Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (CIUSSS-EST, Montreal) and the University of Montreal gives promising results for the treatment of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow currently considered incurable with conventional chemotherapy and for which the average life expectancy is about 6 or 7 years.Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives. Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.Tricked-Out Immune Cells Could Attack Cancer New cell-engineering technique may lead to precision immunotherapies.Edited Stem Cells Offer Hope of Precision Therapy for Blindness Findings raise the possibility of treating blinding eye diseases using a patient's own corrected cells as replacement tissue.
