News Sep 27, 2005
Tecan has announced that it will be demonstrating its full range of products for genomics, proteomics, drug discovery and clinical diagnostic applications at Biotechnica 2005, hall 2, booth B51.
Visitors to the show will have opportunity to see the feature on Tecan's Freedom EVO® series of automated workstations that is designed to allow two liquid handling (LiHa) arms to act completely independently, offering unrivalled processing speed and flexibility for a variety of applications, including hit picking and serial dilutions.
Each arm of eight variable-spacing pipetting tips can be adapted to handle high volumes, for example of cell culture media, as well as low volumes of precious reagents or samples.
The Infinite 200 series of flexible, upgradeable microplate readers will be on display with a choice of monochromator or filter system and combining reagent dispensing with several detection modes.
The modular design means the Infinite 200 is able read fluorescence assays from the top and bottom as well as luminescence or absorbance assays in 6 to 384-well microplates, PCR plates and cuvettes.
Also on the stand will be a range of Tecan Freedom EVO liquid handling workstations, the HS 400 Pro fully automated hybridization station, the high sensitivity LS Reloaded Scanner and the flexible Safire2 microplate reader.
In treating inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), physicians can have a hard time telling which newly diagnosed patients have a high risk of severe inflammation or what therapies will be most effective. Now researchers report finding an epigenetic signature in patient cells that appears to predict inflammation risk in a serious type of IBD called Crohn’s disease.
