Corning Announces Extension to HTS Transwell® -96 Permeable Support Products
News Jun 16, 2006
Corning Incorporated has announced the addition of 3.0 µm, 5.0 µm polycarbonate (PC) membrane and 8.0 µm pore polyester (PET) membrane for its HTS Transwell -96 Permeable Support product line.
These pore sizes allow chemotaxis and cell invasion assays in a higher-throughput format, enabling researchers to conduct assays in smaller volumes, test more samples in a single plate, and conserve test reagents and compounds.
"In order for Trevigen, Inc. to provide a robust cell invasion assay system, we evaluated all 96 well plates that were commercially available to perform the assay," said Jay George chief scientific officer, Trevigen, Inc.
"We determined that only the Corning plate met our specific product development needs and would satisfy the needs of our customers."
"The Corning plate was undoubtedly the clear choice for us to provide in our 96 Well BME Cell Invasion Assay kit."
"Corning Life Sciences’ -96 Well is the best all-around for its reliability, large cell growth surface area, well constructed, and designed for easy manual or automatic usage and cost effectiveness."
"Corning Life Sciences has made an ongoing commitment to continually enhance our products with innovative technologies that researchers require to save time and resources and maximize results," said Lydia Kenton, business manager, Cells, Corning Life Sciences.
"Because cell and tissue techniques are becoming such an important part of life science research today, our customers were demanding new technologies that will take the existing methods of growing specialized cell types in an environment closely resembling the in vivo state to the next level."
"The introduction of larger pore inserts to our popular HTS Transwell -96 permeable support product offering clearly combines the best of proven methodologies with new innovation to ensure continued research developments."
Identical Twin Study Shows Impact of a Lifetime of Exercise on FItnessNews
When it comes to being fit, are genes or lifestyle more important? Researchers removed the nature part of the equation by studying a pair of identical twins who had taken radically different fitness paths over three decades. One became an Ironman triathlete while the other remained relatively sedentary over the last 30 years.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
