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.
2000% Increase in Knowledge of Seafloor Mollusc BiodiversityNews
Latest DNA-taxonomy methodology has revealed a remarkable 2000% increase in our knowledge of the biodiversity of seafloor molluscs. Creating a library of archived DNA-sequenced samples allows future environmental DNA methods to ‘search’ for these species using just tiny samples of mud or seawater.READ MORE
