Douglas Scientific Receives Exclusive Distribution Rights for DNAble® Isothermal Nucleic Acid Amplification Chemistry
News Jan 30, 2014
This collaboration enables them to serve a multitude of customers requiring sophisticated and precise medium- and high-throughput testing solutions.
“The success that has been garnered from our 2012 collaborative agreement makes this the next logical step for us to grow and expand this disruptive molecular detection solution,” says John Markin, C.E.O. of EnviroLogix. “Leveraging the advances of DNAble’s technology and the advantages of Douglas Scientific’s high-throughput platforms, we can offer solutions to an ever-widening array of customers.”
Dan Malmstrom, President and COO of Douglas Scientific, explains, “Adding the DNAble chemistry to our product line brings us one step closer to providing our clients with a complete solution. Fully automated qualitative and quantitative nucleic acid testing can now be done at unprecedented rates while providing dramatic savings to our clients.”
DNAble is a very rapid, highly specific isothermal nucleic acid amplification technology that can amplify both RNA and DNA targets with single base resolution a billion-fold in 5-10 minutes at a single, constant temperature. It offers highly specific, rapid, multiplexed, quantitative results rivaling qPCR. Unlike PCR, DNAble can amplify a target sequence from a crude sample preparation and do so with minimal equipment.
Array Tape is a flexible microplate replacement in a continuous polymer strip, serially embossed with reaction wells in customized volumes and formats. It enables a reel-to-reel process flow that utilizes inline, modular instrumentation including: Nexar® liquid handling and assay processing system, Soellex® thermal cycling and Araya® fluorescent detection instrumentation. Of critical importance is its ability to save labs approximately 30-60% on consumable costs and 80-90% on reagents due to miniaturized reaction volumes. This translates into major savings for labs both large and small.
Rapid Removal of Arsenic From Drinking Water...By Moss!News
A moss capable of removing arsenic from contaminated water has been discovered by researchers. And it happens quickly – in just one hour, the arsenic level is so low that the water is no longer harmful for people to drink.READ MORE
"Genetic Jenga" Helps Understand How Our Genes Control Our CellsNews
To fully understand how our cells work, we can't focus on just one gene, but must instead look at combinations of genes. Researchers have published a study which knocked out multiple genes, like removing bricks from a Jenga tower, to better understand how they work together.READ MORE
