Syngene has announced that it has appointed AlphaMetrix Biotech and LTF-Labortechnik as its new distributors in Germany. Both will work closely with Syngene to ensure that German scientists have access to the latest systems and software for accurately imaging and analyzing a wide range of gels and Western blots.
AlphaMetrix Biotech and LTF-Labortechnik are established life science distributors, located near research hubs close to Frankfurt and Munich (respectively). Both have expertly trained staff with extensive knowledge of supplying and supporting gel documentation systems in major research institutes and pharmaceutical companies.
As part of Syngene’s drive to ensure that its portfolio of high-quality image analysis systems are accessible to German scientists, Syngene would like to expand further and is actively recruiting additional distributors with gel documentation expertise.
Heiner Sanders, General Manager at AlphaMetrix Biotech commented: “We are very pleased to work as a distributor for Syngene products in Germany. It is an incredibly good fit with our current portfolio of molecular biology equipment and will offer our customers a complete solution for their research needs.”
Noel Kändler, Managing Director at LTF-Labortechnik added: “Having visited Syngene, we know the firm offers an excellent range of products and software. Syngene also have well-trained staff, who have been very responsive to our requests and we’re looking forward to demonstrating the equipment’s outstanding imaging performance to German molecular biologists.”
Rob van den Broek, European Sales Manager for Syngene concluded: “Our systems are being used successfully by top laboratories in the UK and US to produce high quality results from their Western blot, 1-D and 2-D gel analysis. With the appointments of AlphaMetrix Biotech and LTF-Labortechnik, we are fortunate to have found well-respected life science distributors and they will make it quicker and easier for German scientists to assess this excellent technology in their own laboratories.”
Study Reveals How MRSA Infection Compromises Lymphatic FunctionNews
Infections of the skin or other soft tissues with the hard-to-treat MRSA bacteria appear to permanently compromise the lymphatic system, which is crucial to immune system function. Investigators describe how MRSA infection impairs the ability of lymphatic vessels to pump lymphatic fluid to lymph nodes in mouse models, which may contribute to the frequent recurrences of MRSA infection experienced by patients.
Researchers Zoom in on DNA Code Being Read in CellsNews
Scientists have unveiled incredible images of how the DNA code is read and interpreted – revealing new detail about one of the fundamental processes of life. The mechanism for reading DNA and decoding it to build proteins for their needs is common to all animals and plants, and is often hijacked by cancer. The discovery of exactly how the molecular mechanism works, could open up new approaches to cancer treatment.READ MORE
