Seward Ltd., manufacturers of the world leading range of Stomacher® paddle blenders and Stomacher® accessories used in sample preparation for microbiological analyses, has introduced a new application focused Resource Centre within its website. The Seward online Resource Centre contains a growing and unique database of reference papers to help users identify how Stomacher® laboratory paddle blenders may be used for different applications and protocols. All scientific papers referenced within the Resource Centre have been read and assessed by Seward’s technical experts...
This technology can visualize cellular-level structural, functional, and biomechanical data and provide new insights into complex processes in living tissue, such as skin. This technology not only offers a new tool for basic science and pre-clinical investigations, but also offers the potential for human clinical investigations into the dynamics of skin regeneration and repair, the incorporation of engineered skin constructs, the effectiveness of new therapies for treating skin conditions such as non-healing diabetic ulcers, and for skin cosmesis applications...
Link Technologies Ltd, a specialist oligonucleotide reagent manufacturer, has dedicated a section of its new, freely available 2013/14 Product Guide to ‘Modification Strategies in Oligonucleotide Synthesis’. Increasingly, modified oligos are playing an important role across a broad range of life science and clinical-based research groups and, for example, show significant promise as agents to optimise drug delivery. In the new Product Guide, Link Technologies has compiled a comprehensive resource for - scientists working with modified oligonucleotides, including educational references, detailed product information, established protocols and application notes, for assured oligo synthesis and use. This go-to guide for oligonucleotide chemistry can be downloaded for free...
METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce the launch of the latest version of its interactive, web-based Electrode ValueBox. This downloadable electrode identification and troubleshooting toolkit, which features a revised electronic Sensor ProductGuide, will help METTLER TOLEDO customers choose the right electrode in less time, enabling easy optimization of delicate values such as pH. Particularly for pH measurements, subtle electrode composition shifts capture electron transfer in various solution types...
Aimed principally at undergraduate teaching laboratories within colleges and universities but also a great asset to the research lab, the 100 page manual details a set of ten continuous-flow processing experiments, each of which can be easily delivered in conjunction with Vapourtec’s E-series flow unit during a regular lab period. Dr Leadbeater, Associate Professor at the University of Connecticut and widely recognised as one of the leading lights in the fields of flow chemistry and new educational initiatives, commented: “Flow chemistry offers a lot of exciting possibilities in terms of running reactions for a wide variety of industries and it’s vital that it is encouraged and nurtured in the field of education...
The book tells the story of how the University of Edinburgh's female scientists have fought for equality, beginning with street riots in the 1870s. Today, an Edinburgh professor is the first female president of the Royal Society of Chemistry. The film celebrates how much has been achieved, but warns that unconscious bias against women still persists, and that more needs to be done to achieve parity. The initiative, entitled A Chemical Imbalance, was funded by the Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Prize awarded to Professor Polly Arnold, Crum Brown Chair of Chemistry and Director of Research in chemistry at the University of Edinburgh...
Employing tests performed at room temperature (25°C) - Porvair has compiled data as to the compatibility of different microplate matrices and membranes to a wide range of acids, alcohols, bases, esters, hydrocarbons /chlorinated hydrocarbons, ketones and other chemicals. In the tabulated chart - chemical compatibility data for each microplate material is listed as ‘suitable’, ‘ok for medium term use’ or ‘unsuitable’ thereby offering lab scientists the information to enable selection of just microplates constructed from materials optimised for their application...
The informative new 12-page guide is written to enable scientists and engineers better understand an optics quoted surface quality as surface imperfections are typically the most misunderstood, misinterpreted, and ambiguous of all optical specifications. Key reasons why surface quality is an important consideration in selecting optics are associated with cosmetic acceptability and often more importantly with the functionality / performance of the component. The presence of defects on the surface of an optical component can scatter light which in some circumstances may affect its performance...
Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT), the world leader in oligonucleotide synthesis, offers insight into recent research that has unearthed an miRNA-regulated network implicated in the pathogenesis of Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Described in the April edition of DECODED, the international IDT customer newsletter, optimized DIG-labeled DsiRNAs (IDT) were used to develop a novel, enhanced approach for oligonucleotide delivery....
