Find out how the S3e™ Cell Sorter can help scientists discover new biomarkers that have the potential to become new therapies for cancer and other diseases.
Andy Riddell, Flow Cytometry Core Facility Manager at the Wellcome Trust- MRC Stem Cell Institutes, is expanding his core facility by allowing his researchers to conduct sorting on their own. In doing so, he is now free to explore and answer the challenging flow cytometry questions that require more of his expert time. Find out how the S3e Cell Sorter has allowed Andy that freedom and how easy sorting can be for researchers.
Traci Lyons describes how PrimePCR Assays ended her laboratory’s struggle to find a qPCR assay that could reliably detect transcription of the cyclooxygenase-2 (Cox-2) gene, which they had identified as potentially prometastatic. Using the PrimePCR Assay for Cox-2, researchers in her lab were finally able to verify cyclooxygenase-2 knockdown, which is a necessary step toward confirming its role in breast cancer metastasis.
Obtaining enough starting material to complete multiple gene expression experiments can be challenging when working with precious and limited samples. Find out how Mark Kibschull of the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute in Toronto determines pluripotency and differentiation of limited human embryonic stem cells using Bio-Rad’s SingleShot Cell Lysis Kit, PreAmp Supermix, and PrimePCR validated primer panels. This simplified workflow allows for the gene expression analysis of hundreds of genes from as little as 100 human embryonic stem cells, and without the cumbersome step of isolating and purifying RNA.
At SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, researchers Stacy Blain and Danielle Joseph are trying to find out how the Cancer Stem Cell model might apply to multiple myeloma. See how they use Bio-Rad’s S3 Cell Sorter to isolate a small population of cells that might play an important role in this disease.
South of Los Angeles, near some of America’s most famous beaches, one small agency is working on new methods for coastal water monitoring. Watch this video and see how scientists from SCCWRP, the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project, are using Droplet Digital PCR to watch over swimmer safety and ensure a clean environment.
Discover how researcher Ernesto Diaz-Flores uses the ChemiDoc Touch Imaging System as he investigates therapeutic targets for a subtype of childhood leukemia. An avid photographer, Diaz-Flores also talks about the links between his art and his science, and the technologies that help him in both fields.
Take a look into the development of Bio-Rad’s S3 Cell Sorter, and see the fresh approach to cell sorting technology that resulted in an innovative new design.
See how researcher Petr Novák, a structural biologist in Prague, Czech Republic, has accelerated his effort to characterize complex receptor molecules by integrating the NGC chromatography system into his lab’s workflow.
