These multiplex assays amplify genetic markers specific to each type of spoilage organism, detecting and quantifying microbial populations quickly. This gives wine producers the ability to identify potential spoilage organisms before they can have a negative impact on the wine.
CleanAmp™ dNTPs offered ETS a universal approach to improved Hot Start PCR. ETS obtained the same advantages as more costly Hot Start enzymes by replacing the standard dNTPs in their assays with CleanAmp™ dNTPs.
“CleanAmp™ dNTPs used with native Taq polymerase perform to specification in our demanding multiplex Scorpions™ assays. We get the same performance at a substantial cost savings,” said Richard DeScenzo, Microbiology Group Leader for ETS.
“We are proud to have made a key contribution to ETS Labs’ exciting new technology,” said TriLink CEO, Dr. Richard Hogrefe.
A human pluripotent stem cell line has been engineered which contains two ‘suicide genes’ that induce cell death in all but the desired insulin-producing cells. This double fail-safe approach opens the door to creating safe cell-replacement therapies for people living with type 1 diabetes.READ MORE
Birch pollen allergic rhinitis is the most common chronic disorder in the Northern part of the globe, and it attributes to significant morbidity and economic burden. According to a new study, pollen allergen immunotherapy has favorable effects on the molecular events and microbiome profile in the nasal membrane.READ MORE
