New Reference – PiColorLock™

October 27th, 2016

PiColorLock™ has been published in Nature! Tuberculosis (TB) is a major health concern and worldwide emergence of resistant forms of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) has further aggravated the situation. As most of the available clinical drugs have single targets in the pathogens, these drugs become ineffective over time due to the development of bacterial resistance against…

Latex conjugation kit Reference

October 25th, 2016

Our Blue and Red Latex beads have been recently published! Acute undifferentiated febrile illnesses (AFIs) are responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality globally. Today, the most effective treatments for patients affected by AFIs rely on the identification of the causative infectious agents, examples of which include Chikungunya (CHIKV) and Dengue (DENV). The initial diagnosis is…

Lightning-Link® Rapid Biotin Referenced in Nature

Lightning-Link® Rapid Biotin has been published in Nature!

October 24th, 2016

Fc Receptors (FcRs) are key molecules for the recognition and elimination of foreign antigens. Among members of this family, FcgRI is expressed on mono-myeloid cells, whose cross-link with immune complexes can initiate cellular responses and receptor/ligand internalization. However, while the first event is well described, the cellular processes involving FcgRI/ligand endocytosis are less defined. Therefore,…

ATP Agarose and ATPase Assay Kit Reference

October 13th, 2016

Our ATP agarose and ATPase assay kit have been published in Nature! In this paper, the authors investigate the role played by the chaperone Hsp70 in protein refolding and degradation; a cellular event triggered under proteotoxic stress-conditions. More specifically, they elucidate how the Hsp70 switch mode of action is mediated by ARD1 acetylation activity, which…

Gold Nanoparticle Conjugates Reference

October 7th, 2016

InnovaCoat® GOLD conjugates have been published in Nature! The authors used our InnovaCoat® GOLD goat anti-rabbit IgG gold conjugates to detect LC3 in spermatozoa which had previously been incubated with an anti-LC3 primary antibody. Their study showed that autophagy-related proteins, such as LC-3, are functionally active in spermatozoa, plus they might play a role in…

Improving the Utility of Immuno-PCR Assays

June 28th, 2016

Immuno-PCR combines the advantages of ELISA and PCR to offer a powerful method used for the detection of small quantities of a protein. Despite demonstrating greater sensitivity than ELISA, immuno-PCR is still not widely used, a result of the complexity associated with the conjugation of antibodies to oligonucleotides. Read our article published in Genetic Engineering…
