• Single Cell Analysis • Maximum sensitivity • Precise optical control • Ease of use • DNA/RNA-free Beckman Coulter is introducing a superior amplification platform for ultra low volume applications in the 1µL range, based on a chemically structured microscope slide. With this innovative system, sensitivity, efficiency and reproducibility are reliable constants for single cell analysis, low-copy number approaches and ultra low volume amplification techniques. And as a result fast and convenient workflow is assured. The AmpliGrid system is the key to obtaining perfect results especially with single cells and nearly any other kind of template material e.g., forensic stains or purified nucleic acids. With the AmpliGrid system, Beckman Coulter is setting a new standard for low volume and single cell assays. And when we say single cell, we mean just ONE single cell.

Crowdfunding the Fight Against Cancer From budding social causes to groundbreaking businesses to the next big band, crowdfunding has helped connect countless worthy projects with like-minded people willing to support their efforts, even in small ways. But could crowdfunding help fight cancer?
Switch Lets Salmonella Fight, Evade Immune System Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have discovered a molecular regulator that allows salmonella bacteria to switch from actively causing disease to lurking in a chronic but asymptomatic state called a biofilm.
