Real Time qRT-PCR

Real Time qRT-PCR Real-Time Quantitative Reverse Transcription PCR (qRT-PCR) is a major development of PCR technology that enables reliable detection and measurement of products generated during each cycle of PCR process. This technique became possible after introduction of an oligonucleotide probe which was designed to hybridize within the target sequence.…

Flow Cytometer

Fluorometer quantus Quantus Fluorometer is a dual-channel fluorometer for personal quantitation workflow. This simple instrument is designed to provide highly sensitive fluorescent detection when quantifying nucleic acids. The Quantus Fluorometer is optimized with preprogrammed settings for Promega QuantiFluor Dye Systems (QuantiFluor dsDNA, RNA and ssDNA Systems) for nucleic acid quantitation,…

Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) Reader

Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) Reader Quantitative analytical methods that show antigen-antibody reactions through the color change obtained by using an enzyme-linked conjugate and enzyme substrate and that serve to identify the presence and concentration of molecules in biological fluids are generally called enzyme immunotests, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). This method…

Flow cytometry

Flow cytometer Flow cytometry is a technology that provides rapid multi-parametric analysis of single cells in solution. Flow cytometers utilize lasers as light sources to produce both scattered and fluorescent light signals that are read by detectors such as photodiodes or photomultiplier tubes. These signals are converted into electronic signals…

Magnetic activated cell sorter (MACS)

Magnetic activated cell sorter (MACS) Magnetic-activated cell sorting (MACS) is a method for separation of various cell populations depending on their surface antigens (CD molecules) invented by Miltenyi Biotec. The method was developed with Miltenyi Biotec's MACS system, which uses superparamagnetic nanoparticles and columns. The 100 nm superparamagnetic nanoparticles are…

Immunomagnetic cell separator

Immunomagnetic cell separator Immunomagnetic cell separation is a technique whereby magnetic particles are used to isolate target cells from heterogeneous mixtures. To accomplish this, the magnetic particles are bound to specific cell surface proteins on the target cells via antibodies, enzymes, lectins, or streptavidin. The sample is then placed in…

Fluorescence microscope

Fluorescence microscope A fluorescence microscope is an optical microscope that uses fluorescence and phosphorescence instead of, or in addition to, scattering, reflection, and attenuation or absorption, to study the properties of organic or inorganic substances. The specimen is illuminated with light of a specific wavelength which is absorbed by the…

Digital-capable inverted light microscope

Digital-capable inverted light microscope Digital inverted microscopes are used to observe living cells or organisms at the bottom of a petri dish or tissue culture flask which microscope camera can connected via USB cable to a laptop or computer and allows live image viewing. Images can be captured and saved…
