Effective oligo labelling is fundamental to many of the biological, diagnostic and forensic applications of oligonucleotides, for example probing protein conformational changes, Q-PCR techniques, e.g. those used in companion diagnostics, and for DNA sequencing. Without labelling the oligos such techniques would be impossible. However, there are numerous oligo labelling strategies, ranging from fluorescent dyes to electrochemical species and affinity labels such as biotin. Link Technologies’ Product Guide provides a clear and concise resource for scientists looking to identify the most suitable labelling approach for their specific application and, with the associated application notes and tested protocols, the Guide enables users to verify their product choices with the utmost confidence.
Compact Chemical Sensor Can Detect Substances from Over 100 Feet AwayNews
A chemical sensor prototype developed at the University of Michigan will be able to detect "single-fingerprint quantities" of substances from a distance of more than 100 feet away, and its developers are working to shrink it to the size of a shoe box. The development offers great potential for medical and law enforcement purposes.READ MORE
