Sigma to Provide Complementary Protocols From CSHL Press
News Mar 21, 2006
Sigma-Aldrich has announced that it will provide complementary protocols from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) Press.
Researchers can freely access a set of protocols each month through the Featured Protocols section of BioSupplyNet.com, the online directory of laboratory supplies used by researchers worldwide.
"Given the diversity of research tools needed to explore genomic and proteomic applications, we recognize the need for easily accessed protocols. We are happy to sponsor this online resource and extend it further by creating an easy-to-use materials list for each protocol," said Diane Gaige, eMarketing Manager at Sigma-Aldrich.
"We strive to offer unique and valuable solutions to the scientific community, and believe that providing these protocols will allow researchers to accelerate their research."
"Creating precise, reliable protocols for laboratory procedures and putting them in the hands of scientists worldwide have been cornerstones of CSHL’s educational activities for decades," said Marcie Siconolfi, head of Advertising Sales and Sponsorships at CSHL Press.
"Sigma-Aldrich has been a valued partner in that process, and we are delighted that our relationship can be extended in this new and exciting way."
