Quantitative Determination of Total Bile Acids with a Thermo Scientific Varioskan Flash Multimode Reader Using a Kinetic Enzyme Cycling Assay
Serum total bile acids (TBA) level is a long-established and accepted indicator of liver diseases. This application note presents a simple photometric measurement of serum TBA.
Pipetting performance of Thermo Scientific Finnpipette F2 in combination with Thermo Scientific Finntip Flex
The Finnpipette® F2 product family has been designed by taking into account the demands of today´s laboratory work and the require¬ments of the end users. It offers superior comfort, performance, reliability and repeatability in one of the lightest pipettes available.
Turbidometric Growth Curve Measurements and Liquid Evaporation Studies with a Microplate Photometer
The turbidity of a liquid sample is traditionally measured either with a nephelometer or a photometer. The measure of turbidity (also called optical density, OD) refers to the scattering of light from the particles of the measured sample. When measuring turbidity of a bacterial culture, the amount of scattered light is directly proportional to the number of bacterial cells in the sample.
High Yield and Quality with Thermo Scientific Microtiter Deep Well 96 plates in KingFisher Flex Process
The Thermo Scientific KingFisher Flex magnetic particle processor is specifically designed to automate the time-consuming sample preparation of proteins, nucleic acids and cells in 96-well plate formats.
Isolation and Purification of Genomic DNA and Viral RNA from Clinical Samples with Thermo Scientific KingFisher Flex
The purification of DNA and RNA from clinical samples requires rapid and reliable processing of large quantities of samples. Automated purification of nucleic acids, proteins and cells with Thermo Scientific KingFisher Flex is a reproducible and high quality method, which produces excellent material for further analyses.
Ergonomics and Usability Study of Thermo Scientific Finnpipette F1 and F2 Pipettes
The objective of the study was to evaluate the ergonomics and usability of six manual, singlechannel pipettes. This was done by measuring the load and strain symptoms exhibited by workers’ muscles and joints, and evaluating the usability features of pipettes in a simulated work situation.
Antimicrobial Properties of Thermo Scientific Finnpipette F1 Compared to Traditional Pipettes
In this application note the antimicrobial properties of the Thermo Scientific Finnpipette F1 were compared to traditional pipettes without antimicrobial treatment. The experiments were performed by an independent laboratory (Institut für Biotechnische Forschung und Entwicklung Graf GmbH, Kirkel-Limbach, Germany).
