Sample Stabilization and Purification Devices for Superior Forensic DNA Storage, Purification and Profiling
Mawi DNA Technologies and BioChain

The tools used for evidentiary sample collection are often challenged in criminal cases. Maintaining the integrity of evidentiary samples continues to be a major challenge - especially when samples stay in transit during transportation where sample integrity is highly compromised. Thus, there is a crucial need for a cost-effective, efficient DNA collection and storage system that maintain sample integrity from collection until processing, while providing a means to ensure proper chain of custody
A Simple Plate Based Assay Using pH Sensor Dye to Screen for Internalizing Antibody
Promega Corporation

Receptor mediated internalization is a key mechanism of action (MOA) for antibody drug conjugates (ADCs). However, current methods of studying antibody internalization have several limitations including: 1) A multistep process not suitable for screening; 2) Low signal-to-background ratios; 3) Not suitable for kinetic measurements. We have developed a method that mitigates problems associated with traditional internalization assays.
