  The Smaller the Better with miniPCR

Naming a lab product can be tricky – looking for a short, snappy and memorable tag that tells potential customers what a product does isn’t always easy.

miniPCRBut whoever had to name this product had it very easy indeed. miniPCR – A PCR thermal cycler that fits in the palm of your hand! miniPCR thermal cyclers deliver the same high-end performance as established PCR platforms. But the advantages of being this small are huge.  You can carry them anywhere, they’re incredibly easy to use, and – just in case this interests you – they cost a lot less. miniPCR could save you a small fortune. A traditional PCR...


  Ribosomal RNA Removal

Microarray and sequencing specialists Arraystar, based in Rockville, Maryland, are taking RNA analysis to new heights.

  Sequence deeper and discover more!

Cambio now supplies UK life scientists with the new Globin-Zero™ Gold Kit from Epicentre. This innovative product is used to clean up excess globin mRNA and rRNA in total blood RNA samples, allowing improved identification and sequencing of the target RNA components

Sequence deeper and discover more!Globin-Zero™ Gold Kits efficiently remove abundant globin RNAs from both intact and degraded human, mouse and rat total blood RNA samples. In these samples, as much as 70% of the mRNA can be globin mRNA, and this would account for a large majority of sequencing reads in RNA-Seq experiments. By removing excess RNA, the Globin-Zero™ Gold Kit enables deeper sequencing into blood RNA samples and improved identification of less abundant RNA types, including viral RNA. Complete in just 90 minutes, the rapid, single-pass process saves time and reduces sample waste compared to common multi-step procedures, which require the use of various kits to complete the same task....
