Students at Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, took advantage of PIPETBOY pipette controllers to support their pioneering research in the run up to the 2023 iGEM Competition. A large part the study’s work involved designing plasmid constructs and testing potential reporter systems, so the researchers were working extensively with liquid cultures. The PIPETBOY pipette controllers from INTEGRA quickly became essential daily tools in the lab, significantly speeding up repetitive pipetting protocols and leading to greater productivity. Extremely precise instruments, they also helped improve the reproducibility and consistency of many manual liquid handling tasks.

The new Curiox C-FREE™ Venus System enhances flow cytometry by automating cell washing, improving safety, and streamlining workflows. It offers superior debris removal, clearer resolution, and biosafety enhancements. To further improve researcher’s workflows, Curiox Biosystems has entered into a strategic partnership with Beckman Coulter Life Sciences that combines Curiox’s laminar flow-based gentle liquid exchange technology with Beckman Coulter’s comprehensive suite of DURAClone dry pre-formulated antibody panels and customized DURA Innovations dry reagent antibody cocktails. This collaboration overcomes longstanding challenges faced by researchers, including the need for highly standardized, reproducible, and automated sample preparation for flow cytometry laboratories.

Agilent is proud to introduce the new DAK-TDT clone in iFluor 488, iFluor 700, and APC dyes. With an emission profile similar to FITC, iFluor 488 simplifies the revalidation of panels currently using TdT/FITC, whereas iFluor 700 and APC allow using new emission channels with the TdT, adding flexibility to your panel design.

Streck recently announced the launch of Protein Plus BCT™, a direct draw whole blood collection tube intended to stabilize the draw-time concentrations of plasma proteins during ambient temperature storage. Protein Plus BCT is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic procedures. The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute recommends that blood samples be centrifuged within two hours of drawing to mitigate the effects of preclinical factors on blood proteins. The preservative reagent in Protein Plus BCT™ maintains sample integrity during storage, shipping, and handling before mass spectrometry or immunoassay-based proteomic analysis, allowing laboratories logistical flexibility without the risk of compromised accuracy. For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. Protein Plus BCT™ should only be used for research or the development of new assays.
