From the origins of digital PCR in leukemia research to stopping HIV with novel polymers to better methods for fragment-based drug discovery, BioRadiations has covered some of the most exciting life science research stories of 2013. Now take a look back at these stories and more as we review the best pieces of the year.
In the early 1990s, researcher Alec Morley and his colleagues pioneered digital PCR techniques to measure acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Today, Morley is trying to develop a more accurate way to quantify chronic myeloid leukemia. Find out why he chose Bio-Rad’s Droplet Digital PCR technology for this effort.
Twenty years after the discovery of the link between BRCA gene mutations and breast cancer, researcher Ryan Jensen of the Yale Medical School is looking into the interactions between the DNA repair protein RAD51 and BRCA proteins using Bio-Rad’s V3 Western Workflow.
Take a closer look at Bio-Rad’s initiative to bring scientists into K–12 schools in North America by following three Ambassadors as they go into classrooms. Find out more about what this program offers students, teachers, and researchers.
Bioradiations.com, the online technical resource for Bio-Rad customers, has been offering a variety of research tips and protocols, customer stories and testimonials, and in-depth technical reports throughout the year. Here are the highlights of what we presented in the year 2012.
Bio-Rad has long demonstrated innovation in imaging, with the introduction of the stain-free gel electrophoresis workflow, which was rapidly followed by the launch of the Gel Doc™ EZ imager. Now, this progression continues with the release of the ChemiDoc™ MP imaging system.
Protein Expression and Purification Laboratory Course for Training Researchers on Protein Expression and Purification.
The ProteOn XPR36 protein interaction analysis system was introduced in 2006 to provide a novel array technology to researchers conducting label-free analysis of proteins. The ProteOn system is a high-throughput surface plasmon resonance-based screening tool for a wide range of applications from small-molecule drug discovery to antibody kinetic ranking, epitope binning, and epitope mapping.
The Gel Doc™ EZ imaging system makes an impact from coast to coast — at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University in Boston, and in the Geoff Rosenfeld Laboratory at the University of California, San Diego.
