Product News Mar 27, 2012
Oxford Expression Technologies (OET) has launched baculoQUANT ALL-IN-ONE™, a baculovirus extraction and titration kit.
The new kit has been developed together with PCR reagent and equipment specialists Agilent Technologies as a continued theme to provide ease of use to scientists.
baculoQUANT ALL-IN-ONE contains all the necessary components for baculovirus extraction and quantification and provides significant advantages over traditional methods.
The new kit represents a significant step forward for baculovirus quantification as it bypasses the need for DNA extraction spin columns, plaque assays, ELISA and immuno assays that current methods rely on.
It also boasts a host of new features including viral DNA extraction and titration in less than three hours, less than 1 hour hands on time, increased accuracy and one step DNA extraction.
Passing comment, Richard Broadhead, Sales and Marketing Manager at Oxford Expression Technologies said, “We are pleased to announce the launch of the baculoQUANT ALL-IN-ONE™ baculovirus quantification kit, it represents our continued commitment to provide innovation and ease of use to our customers and scientists involved in recombinant protein expression.”
He continued, “We have increased the speed and simplified a key part of any baculovirus workflow, the quantification of virus, we are delighted that our customers can benefit from these improvements.”
Agilent Technologies’ Paige Weis, Manager Custom and Bulk Services commented, “We are very pleased to collaborate with Oxford Expression Technologies in the development of the new baculoQUANT ALL-IN-ONE™kit, Agilent Technologies is a global leader in PCR technologies and we are delighted to contribute our high performance and easy to use PCR components to this exciting new kit.”
