Link Technologies’ new Product Guide is the ‘go-to’ resource for oligo chemistry.

Link Technologies Ltd has used its 25 years of industry experience to produce the 2013/14 Product Guide, providing scientists with a wealth of application-orientated content for oligonucleotide chemistry. For easy navigation, the guide is broken into key topics and processes, including Oligonucleotide Labelling Strategies, and each section is supported by application notes and protocols, for easy product-to-practice transition.

Effective oligo labelling is fundamental to many of the biological, diagnostic and forensic applications of oligonucleotides, for example probing protein conformational changes, Q-PCR techniques, e.g. those used in companion diagnostics, and for DNA sequencing. Without labelling the oligos such techniques would be impossible. However, there are numerous oligo labelling strategies, ranging from fluorescent dyes to electrochemical species and affinity labels such as biotin. Link Technologies’ Product Guide provides a clear and concise resource for scientists looking to identify the most suitable labelling approach for their specific application and, with the associated application notes and tested protocols, the Guide enables users to verify their product choices with the utmost confidence.

Study Raises Questions About DNA Evidence
University of Indianapolis researchers say contamination through secondary transfer of material could implicate the innocent or help the guilty go free.
'Forensic Toolkit’ to Improve Evidence Detection and Analysis
Students from The University of Dundee have been developing a forensic `toolkit’ that will allow investigators to determine the age of fingerprints, detect traces of steel on bone from stabbings, and produce a biosensitive spray that can reveal traces of bodily fluids at crime scenes.
Glowing Fingerprints to Fight Crime
A CSIRO scientist who had his home broken into has developed a new crime scene identification technique to help fingerprint criminals.
Forensic Facial Examiners Can Be Near Perfect
In what might be the first face-off of its kind, trained forensics examiners from the FBI and law enforcement agencies worldwide were far more accurate in identifying faces in photographs than nonexperts and even computers.
Ancestral Background Can Be Determined By Fingerprints
A proof-of-concept study finds that it is possible to identify an individual’s ancestral background based on his or her fingerprint characteristics – a discovery with significant applications for law enforcement and anthropological research.

We each give off millions of bacteria from our human microbiome to the air around us every day, and that cloud of bacteria can be traced back to an individual.
Blood, Teeth Samples Predict a Criminal's Age
Forensic biomedical scientists from KU Leuven have developed a test to predict individuals’ age on the basis of blood or teeth samples. This test may be particularly useful for the police, as it can help track down criminals or identify human remains.
Contactless Fingerprint Technology is Coming
Quickly moving through security checkpoints by showing your hand to a scanner seems straight out of science fiction, but NIST is working with industry to bring fast, touchless fingerprint readers out of the lab and into the marketplace.
