Sonicator or freeze-thaw? Detergent or enzymatic lysis? Find out how to pick the right cell disruption method for your experiment.
What is Multidimensional (Multi-D) chromatography? Here is an animated explanation of how Multi-D chromatography works and what its advantages are over traditional chromatography.
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.
A look inside Julianne Zedalis’ classroom at The Bishop’s School in San Diego, CA, gives a glimpse of how a master teacher implements inquiry in her classroom. Bio-Rad’s ThINQ! Investigations enable instructors to guide students through real-world inquiry investigations. These labs meet the revised College Board curriculum requirements and are aligned to AP Biology Big Ideas; they are designed to connect inquiry to NGSS and college curricula, encouraging students to think like real scientists.
The ZOE fluorescent cell imager features an integrated digital camera and touch-screen interface that makes brightfield and multichannel fluorescence microscopy simple, fast, and intuitive. An easy-to-use alternative to the traditional inverted microscope, ZOE eliminates the complexities of multichannel fluorescence imaging by combining the ease of use of a personal tablet and the power of an inverted microscope.
Doing these three simple checks will protect your chromatography system from common lab hazards.
