This video describes the three main steps in attaching a DynaLoop Sample Loop to the NGC™ Chromatography System to enable the injection of larger sample volumes: connecting the DynaLoop Sample Loop to the NGC Chromatography System, priming the DynaLoop Sample Loop, and creating a method in ChromLab™ Software.
The NGC pH valve provides real-time, in-line monitoring of buffer pH. In this video, you’ll learn how to connect the pH valve to the NGC System, add it to the flow path, and calibrate the valve using buffers at two different pH values. Features of the pH valve include accessible calibration ports and easy bypass of the probe when the NGC System is being cleaned.
This video explains how to remove bubbles and/or reduce bubble formation in your NGC System. Tips to reduce bubbles include warming up your multiwave detector for 30 to 60 min before use and flowing buffer at 0.1–0.2 ml/min in the manual mode until a stable/flat baseline is achieved before starting a method. The system may also be flushed with 100% methanol or ethanol at purge speed, with columns out of line, to remove bubbles.
This video describes the functions of the Air Sensor Module and how to connect it to the NGC Chromatography System. The NGC Air Sensor senses the end of sample or buffer and prevents the introduction of air into the system, which can damage columns and/or incur the loss of precious samples. Both small and large air sensors are available to fit the tubing being used. Steps for connecting the Air Sensor Module and associated air sensors are described including how to add the air sensors into the system flow path using ChromLab™ Software and the differences in using the air sensors in manual vs. method modes.
Find out how a new Droplet Digital PCR-based technique called Drop Phase lets you quickly and easily phase genomes to better understand diseases like cystic fibrosis.
Multicolumn purifications are tedious and the manual operations during this process introduce variabilities, affecting the success of purification and reproducibility of results. This whiteboard animation explains how an automated multi-dimensional chromatography method can make this an easier process with very high success rates.
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.
