Latest Application Notes
BD Cytometric Bead Array Cell Signaling Flex Set System
The BD™ Cytometric Bead Array (CBA) Cell Signaling Flex Set system lets you achieve high productivity in cell signaling studies by extracting more data from less sample faster than traditional Western blot techniques.
Bacterial Detection and Live/Dead Discrimination by Flow Cytometry
Accurate determination of live, dead, and total bacteria is important in many microbiology applications. Traditionally, viability in bacteria is synonymous with the ability to form colonies on solid growth medium and to proliferate in liquid nutrient broths. These traditional, culture-based tests are time-consuming and can work poorly with slow-growing or viable, but non-culturable organisms.
Miniaturisation of Gas Chromatography Equipment
Gas Chromatography (GC) is a highly sensitive chemical analysis technique with a broad range of applications. Existing commercial GC systems are generally quite bulky and fragile. Microfluidics enables miniaturisation of the gas chromatography column and low power methods for column heating.
Mitos P-Pump Droplet Monodispersity
The formation of droplets of oil-in-water or water-in-oil has a range of uses in science and industry. Monodispersity, or size consistency, is the key to making droplet microfluidics a powerful tool for conducting accurate and repeatable experiments.
Cellular Dopamine and Intracellular Calcium Signaling Using the Next Generation HTS Microplate Reader
Two cell-based signaling assays from Invitrogen, Fluo-4 Direct™ Calcium Assay and Tango™-bla U2OS GPCR Assay, were performed on the PHERAstar FS HTS instrument. The PHERAstar FS has several unique features that enhance the performance of these assays including direct optic bottom reading, high resolution cell layer scanning, injection at the point of measurement and dual emission detection.
Automated Turnkey Solubility and Permeability Assays
Millipore Corporation and Molecular Devices have partnered to provide platforms for solubility and permeability screening. The objective is to create automation-compatible 96- and 384-based systems with pre-validated methods, devices and analysis that can be run manually or in conjunction with standard laboratory automation.
Integrated Solutions for High-Throughput Bioprocessing Applications
Advances in blood banking, industrial biotechnology, bio-production and pharmaceutical laboratories have driven the need to process multiple sample batches.
Simulated Distillation Analysis of Kerosene and Diesel by ASTM D2887
Simulated Distillation (SimDis) is a Gas Chromatographic technique for determining the boiling point distribution of petroleum products by Flame Ionization Detection. This information assists refinery engineers in determining the most efficient process for the distillation of crude oil and allows for active monitoring of the refining process.
Rapid Analysis of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Seafood
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.
SDMS Vision Publisher Facilitating Masslynx and Empower Software Data Capture
As the volume and complexity of research data continues to grow, the use of an electronic format for laboratory record keeping is the key to simple recording and global communication of critical scientific information.
