Merck Millipore Launches Simplicon™ RNA Reprogramming Technology for Efficient Generation of Virus-Free iPSCs

by Merck Millipore

Merck Millipore, the Life Science division of Merck, today (June 17) launched Simplicon™ RNA Reprogramming Technology, which uses synthetic self-replicating RNA to create large numbers of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) using a single transfection step. This efficient reprogramming of somatic cells is accomplished without viral intermediates or host genome integration, offering a more defined and safer system for iPSC generation.

How a Bulk Solvent Delivery System Works

by EMD Millipore

Problem: Solvents are used in virtually every laboratory to perform routine research procedures as well as product quality control and medical and diagnostic tests. Laboratory staff are responsible for the documentation, staging, storage and transport of solvents, which compromises valuable time spent on research.

Elix® UV Technology Compared to Single and Double Distillation

by EMD Millipore

Today, newer purification technologies have proven able to compete with long-established distillation. Following a brief review of these purification technologies are data for performances of a single and double distillation system, and the Millipore Elix UV system.

How IR Spectroscopy for Protein Quantitation Works

by EMD Millipore

Classical methods for protein quantitation rely on colorimetric assays, such as those involving protein-copper chelation (bicinchoninic acid (BCA) and Lowry assays) and dye-binding based detection (Bradford and “660 Assay”) or ultraviolet (UV) spectroscopy.
