“It’s extremely important that the user keeps an eye on the status of the rotor, maintains it properly, cleans it, and prevents aggressive chemicals from getting in,” product manager says
Problem: Assays using immortalized cell lines and plastic labware have been used for decades as an in-vitro mimic of how a putative drug may work in the human body. The last decade has seen attempts to improve the physiological relevance of these assays by the incorporation of human primary cells that better reflect human biology both from a drug efficacy and toxicity perspective. At issue with the use of primary cells is the relative difficulty in tissue culturing and maintenance for long-term studies relative to immortalized cell lines.
Filters vs. Monochromators - When using a microplate reader, these are the two options to filter light into monochromatic wavelengths. Filters offered higher performance because of greater light transmission and wider bandwidths; monochromators offered greater flexibility, no new filters were needed for each new assay.
Rapid Identification of Synthetic Cannabinoids in Herbal Samples via Direct Analysis in Real Time Mass Spectrometry— R. A. Musah, M. A. Domin, M. A. Walling, and J. R. E. Shepard, Rapid Commun. Mass Spectrom., vol. 26, no. 9, pp. 1109–1114, 2012.
In clinical lab environments, as in any laboratory using chemicals, work processes pose an inherent risk of hazardous chemical exposure for operators and for the lab environment.
When buying a new liquid temperature control product, there are a number of factors to consider when picking a product.
Antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) is an important target for antibody-derived biopharmaceuticals, allowing the controlled targeting and destruction of tumor, virus-infected or other diseased cells. Promega’s ADCC Reporter Bioassayoffers a convenient way of assessing ADCC using frozen, thaw-and-use effector and target cells, eliminating the need for cell culture maintenance.
Giving you the power of normal-phase LC, but with the ease of use of reversed-phase LC, convergence chromatography is a broad-based, complementary analytical platform that is taking its place as an essential separation technology for modern laboratory analysis.
