Rapid Analysis of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Seafood
Application Note

Shimadzu

The recent Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico created concerns over the safety of seafood that can get potentially contaminated with Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) from crude oil. The US Environmental Protection Agency identifies PAHs as critical pollutants harmful to human health. Some of these compounds are known carcinogens.

Counting Cells for Immunology Using CellometerTM Auto T4 Cell Counter
Application Note

CellometerTM Auto T4 is routinely used for counting cells used in immunology research. This application note provides some details on methods of using the CellometerTM system, and shows images and counting data to illustrate a typical application. Viability determination is based on trypan blue dye exclusion. Cell concentration is determined automatically based on total cell count and dilution factor. Cell size exclusion is used to count mature DC cells cultured from PBMC.
