TriLink BioTechnologies Announces Worldwide License with QuantiBact A/S
News May 16, 2013
TINA molecules are intercalators placed at the 5’ end of primers to stabilize duplex formation. Their unique properties improve the sensitivity and specificity of endpoint and real-time PCR. TINA may find applications wherever an enhanced Tm is required such as triplex formation or potentially even gene silencing.
“At QuantiBact we strive to make our technologies available throughout the research and diagnostic communities. We appreciate being able to work with dedicated companies that hold high recognition in the market place. The market position as well as in depth knowledge of nucleic acids embedded within TriLink will enable us to further reach our goal,” says Palle Schelde, CEO, Managing Director, QuantiBact.
“At TriLink we pride ourselves on our quality and our ability to handle unique nucleic acid modifications. This makes us an ideal manufacturer of TINA oligos,” stated Richard Hogrefe, Ph.D., President and CEO of TriLink. “We are excited to work with the great folks at QuantiBact and see how this technology might advance molecular diagnostics.”
Improved Method for Isolating Extracellular RNANews
In a breakthrough that could lead to powerful new ways to diagnose and track a wide range of medical conditions, scientists at The Rockefeller University have devised an improved method for isolating and identifying tiny fragments of RNA in human blood products.READ MORE
Giant Viruses Invent Their Own GenesNews
Three new members have been isolated and added to the Pandoravirus family. This strange family of viruses, with their giant genomes and many genes with no known equivalents, surprised scientists when they were discovered a few years ago. This new study notes that pandoraviruses appear to be factories for new genes – and therefore new functions.
Therapeutic CRISPR Could Be Cancer RiskNews
Therapeutic use of gene editing with the so-called CRISPR-Cas9 technique may inadvertently increase the risk of cancer, according to a new study. Researchers say that more studies are required in order to guarantee the safety of these ‘molecular scissors’ for gene-editing therapies.
