Advancing Molecular Diagnostics for Myelodysplastic Syndrome

No patient who has survived cancer wants to hear that they’ve relapsed. But hearing it sooner rather than later can dramatically increase the chances of finding a successful, potentially life-saving treatment. Using next-generation sequencing and Droplet Digital PCR, researchers at the University of Uppsala aim to detect relapse by monitoring patient-specific biomarkers. Read about their ongoing clinical study.

Stain-Free Western Blotting: Faster Results, Better Data

Western blotting is a well-accepted technique which has a place in every molecular biologist’s toolkit. However, the traditional process is lengthy and filled with manual steps, which can result in variability. Stain-Free technology can shorten your workflow and improve your data. Read our top three reasons to incorporate Stain-Free technology in your western blotting workflow.

Retain Rare Transcripts While Depleting Ribosomal RNA

Bio-Rad is excited to announce the launch of SEQuoia RiboDepletion Kit, the newest product in the SEQuoia portfolio of RNA-Seq sample preparation products. This is a stand-alone, post–library depletion kit that eliminates RNA-Seq library fragments that originated from ribosomal RNA sequences. The kit exhibits superior performance in retaining small RNAs while minimizing the loss of rare transcripts and RNA from limited samples, providing a better approach to whole transcriptome profiling. Furthermore, the cost of rRNA depletion can be significantly reduced by pooling and depleting multiple libraries in a single ribodepletion reaction.

Advanced Cancer Therapeutics: Increasing Efficacy and Specificity and Reducing Toxicity

Research into human diseases has led to the development of novel monoclonal antibody drugs. These monoclonal antibody therapies have been successful because of their specificity and selectivity. However, ongoing development and successfully launching a new mAb drug require robust and reliable methods to screen for drug targets, demonstrate drug safety and efficacy, and scale up manufacturing to meet the stringent regulatory guidelines required for approval.

With Cell and Gene Therapies, Success and Quality Control Go Hand-in-Hand

While the FDA has approved Abecma, the first CAR-T cell therapy in its class, regulatory approval is just the beginning for cell and gene therapies. Such therapies’ safety and financial viability rest on a robust manufacturing and quality control program with the flexibility to scale up and out. Droplet Digital PCR is a sensitive biopharmaceutical quality control tool, offering absolute quantification of nucleic acids and other molecules in a sample.
