In biochromatography, every purification or separation procedure that fails because of instrument malfunction wastes precious lab resources. That’s why Bio-Rad, in designing the NGC chromatography system, found new ways to engineer reliability into the chromatography experience. Here’s how they did it.
Hand casting polyacrylamide gels is not an easy task. It is laborious, needs lot of pre-planning and is cumbersome. Bio-Rad’s new TGX and TGX Stain-Free FastCast gel solutions not only address all these issues, but provide added benefits, such as increased speed, stain-free visualization, and quality control. Learn more about these new handcasting kits.
Efficient SPR-Based Fragment Screening and Small Molecule Affinity Analysis Using Bio-Rad’s ProteOn™ XPR36 System
Fragment-based screening has emerged as an important tool for identifying lead compounds in drug discovery, though the molecules involved present challenges related to their low affinity. Label-free surface plasmon resonance (SPR) analysis provides an efficient and reproducible solution to these challenges. Here we describe ways to determine small molecule affinity that combines high sensitivity and high throughput with low sample consumption.
Chromatography instruments have a bad reputation in terms of their complexity and difficulty of use. In response, Bio-Rad’s designers and engineers challenged themselves to make the new NGC™ chromatography system as simple and intuitive-to-use as possible. Learn about the new easier-to-use instrument interface they created as a result.
Jefferson County, Tennessee, faced tight school budgets and a mandate to “teach to the test” that left little room for hands-on science learning. Learn how biology professor Lisa Eccles worked to reverse this trend by getting involved with the Science Ambassador program, Bio-Rad’s fast-growing initiative to spark excitement about life science in primary school classrooms.
In the early 1990s, researcher Alec Morley and his colleagues pioneered digital PCR techniques to measure acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Today, Morley is trying to develop a more accurate way to quantify chronic myeloid leukemia. Find out why he chose Bio-Rad’s Droplet Digital PCR technology for this effort.
The Chromatography Chronicles Part 3: Adding, Swapping, and Scaling — Better Chromatography through Modular Design
What does it take to configure your own chromatography system? Part three of The Chromatography Chronicles examines how the NGC™ chromatography system adapts and grows to meet changing lab needs, and the modular design that makes this possible.
Good data processing practice ensures that protein interaction experiments using a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) system will yield the clearest possible results. Here we present tips for understanding and processing SPR sensorgrams when using Bio-Rad’s ProteOn™ XPR36 protein interaction array system.
Is spending hours in the coldroom just an inevitable part of doing chromatography? The engineers and designers at Bio-Rad believed that, with a little innovation, the answer could be “no.” Part two of The Chromatography Chronicles reveals how they freed the NGC™ medium-pressure chromatography system — and its users — from the coldroom’s chilly confines.
