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.
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.Genomic Signature Shared by Five Types of Cancer National Institutes of Health researchers have identified a striking signature in tumor DNA that occurs in five different types of cancer.
