by Dr O. Robertson-Gray and Dr W. Fuller Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the umbrella term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels and remains the leading cause of death worldwide. New therapeutic strategies to aid in the prevention and treatment of CVD are therefore necessary. This article discusses the potential for S-acylation, a post-translational […]

by Dr Robert Reed and Dr Soheyl Tadjiki Viruses are increasingly used as gene therapy vectors in modern medicine. In order to minimize unwanted side effects such as immunogenicity, accurate determination of viral aggregation status is important. Field-flow fractionation is emerging as one of the most robust techniques for the separation and size measurement of […]
AMSBIO has introduced a collection of mutated SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins and recombinant antigens for the new virus variants – B.1.1.7 and B.1.351. These reagents can be used by researchers to evaluate the efficacy of the antibodies and identify targets for development of improved therapeutic drugs and vaccines.
by Jean Deenmamode The concept of testing breath, blood or urine for alcohol is familiar to the general public, and blood alcohol testing is widely used across a range of industries, from aviation to driver licensing. But is a snapshot alcohol measurement really the best approach to ensuring longterm safety in these industries, or identifying […]
by Dr Nicolas Gerst Pipettes are important tools widely used in the lab. They are usually chosen and purchased carefully with the goal of receiving the best performance for a given price. Pipette tips are consumables; therefore, price can be an important factor, sometimes at the detriment of quality and performance. We found that tips […]
Thermo Scientific has introduced the Orbitrap Exploris GC 240 – a new gas chromatography (GC) high-resolution mass spectrometer (MS) with unrivalled mass resolving power, sensitivity and wide dynamic range. The GC addresses the need for increased flexibility, speed and accuracy in research applications throughout academic and industry laboratories, and offers researchers the capability to achieve […]
PCR Biosystems, the UK-based specialists in DNA and RNA analysis, have launched a range of IsoFast Bst Polymerase reagents for rapid, robust and sensitive DNA and RNA amplification. Through its nucleic acid strand displacement capabilities, Bst polymerase eliminates the need for the high temperature denaturation step associated with traditional Taq enzymes. This enables faster time to result […]
Lonza has expanded its renowned human primary cell offerings with the launch of fully customizable, high-quality cryopreserved Leukopaks. The frozen Leukopaks will enable long-distance shipping of leukapheresis products without the concern of reduced cell viability encountered with fresh Leukopaks. Being suitable for long-term storage in research labs, the cryopreserved Leukopaks will also allow immediate access […]
Immudex ApS has been collaborating with BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) to create improved solutions for T-cell multi-omics research. The goal of this collaboration was to develop dCODE Dextramer reagents compatible with the BD Rhapsody Single Cell Analysis system, a platform that analyses the expression of hundreds of genes across tens of thousands of single […]
The ionRocket from BioChromato is a temperature-heating device for direct thermal desorption and pyrolysis of samples, prior to ionization and analysis by mass spectrometry. Direct Analysis in Real Time Mass Spectrometry (DART-MS) is a proven technique that enables rapid analysis of both solid and liquid samples under standard laboratory conditions without sample preparation. However, certain polymers, cosmetic powders and forensic materials […]
