A New Breed of Cell Sorters: Bio-Rad’s S3™ Cell Sorter Appeals to the Growing Cell Biology Community
The S3 cell sorter is Bio-Rad’s new addition to the world of flow cytometry. Take a look at how this instrument breaks the mold for cell sorters, brings relief to investigators and core lab managers alike, and opens up exciting new research possibilities.
Bio-Rad’s microplate readers function at their full potential when used with Microplate Manager Software. This updated version of the software features two new read modes, compatibility with the latest operating systems, and more.
Cell sorting is a complex and expensive process, with complicated steps requiring training. Bio-Rad’s new S3™ cell sorter is compact, easy to use, automated, affordable, and provides exceptional sort purity and yield results.
Bio-Rad’s new TC20 automated cell counter is compatible with broad range of cell sizes and types such as cell lines, primary cells (from tissue or blood), and stem cells.
This report demonstrates that the TC10 automated cell counter is a suitable alternative to the Coulter Counter and hemocytometer for the preparation of custom Bio-Plex assays.
Rossi considers the discovery of RNAi as pivotal to antiviral discovery. “RNAi has become another important, powerful genetic tool we can use to further our antiviral work,” he says. Rossi’s lab became the first to publish research demonstrating the expression of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) to inhibit HIV replication in human cells. Various aspects of RNAi and siRNAs continue to play a key role in his research on viral diseases and lymphomas.
Bedtime stories in Dr David Schaffer’s — one of today’s pioneers in stem cell research — childhood home were often not standard fairy tales. With both parents in careers as biomedical researchers (his mother in drug development and clinical trials for a major pharmaceutical company and his father, in cardiovascular research and a pharmacology professor) much of the conversation as far back as Schaffer can remember centered on biology and science.
Comparison between the TC10™ Automated Cell Counter and the Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) Assay to Assess Cellular Toxicity in vitro
This tech report presents the results of a comparative study between the TC10 automated cell counter and the classical LDH assay to measure cell viability in suspension cells. Results show that the TC10 cell counter can replace the LDH assay to measure both the viability of cell suspensions and the cytotoxic effects of various compounds.
