Take the Expressway to RNA Library Prep

RNA-Seq library preparation is a manually intensive, time-consuming process prone to bias from the multiple enzymes required. So, how can you trust your sequencing results? Bio-Rad is revolutionizing RNA-Seq library prep with the SEQuoia Express Stranded RNA Library Prep Kit – a three-hour, three-tube solution eliminating the need for multiple enzymes and reducing both the number of pipetting steps and protocol time. The key is an engineered, proprietary retrotransposon called SEQzyme. With this serial template jumping, or continuous synthesis, reaction you can obtain an unbiased, stranded RNA-Seq library constructed to accurately represent both messenger and non-coding RNA from your sample.

A Mixed-Mode Approach — An Alternative to a Three-Step mAb Purification Process

Monoclonal antibody (mAb) purification methods often involve the use of resin-based chromatography. In this video, we compare a three-step mAb purification workflow, which uses Nuvia Ion Exchange Resins post–Protein A capture, to a two-step purification workflow, which includes a Protein A capture step followed by a mixed-mode chromatography step using Nuvia aPrime 4A Resin, a hydrophobic anion exchange resin. We present an additional two-step purification approach using Protein A resin followed by a calcium affinity cation exchange media, CHT Ceramic Hydroxyapatite XT Media. The results of both studies demonstrate that a high purity product can be attained using one fewer unit operation than traditional workflows.

The PI3K-AKT Pathway and Its Role in Tumorigenesis

The phosphoinositide 3-kinase/protein kinase B (PI3K-AKT) pathway is involved in the control of numerous critical cellular processes. PI3K-AKT pathway dysfunction has been observed in several diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and autoimmune and neurological disorders. In this animation, learn more about the molecular characteristics and function of the PI3K-AKT pathway and how AKT mutation plays a role in tumorigenesis.

Choosing Validated Antibodies for Trustworthy Data

The lack of reproducibility in research has been a source of frustration for scientists. Learn why antibody validation is critical for ensuring specificity and what validation methods Bio-Rad is implementing. Our scientists validate the performance of antibodies through CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing by knockout (KO), siRNA knockdown (KD), and immunoprecipitation followed by mass spectrometry (IP-MS).
