Finneran-Porvair – Protein Precipitation Plates

Porvair Sciences Protein Precipitation Plates (P3), also known as Protein Crash Plates, assist to remove undesired proteins during the preparation of samples. The P3 plate uses the CRASH method to precipitate proteins out of the solution, while maintaining good flow rate, low non-specific binding, and a clean system that ensures no leakage.

Tecan Genomics (NuGEN) – Save 15% OFF all products with NuQuant® Technology

Simplify your workflow by using integrated NuQuant® library quantification for Illumina sequencing.  NuQuant® is a novel method to measure the molar concentrations of NGS libraries in seconds.  This method eliminates the need to serially dilute libraries and estimate library size, making it more accurate than other library quantitation methods such as qPCR or DNA electrophoresis.

Why Use NuQuant®?

  • Cost-effective:  No qPCR reagents needed
  • Exceptionally accurate:  Simple fluorescence assay to determine library molarity
  • More consistent results:  No serial dilutions of standards that introduce variability
  • All inclusive:  NuQuant® is integrated in select library preparation kits

Can You Combine ABC and TSA?

The ABC (Avidin Biotin Complex) method can be combined with both a polymer secondary antibody and biotin-tyramide amplification (TSA) to increase sensitivity. Researchers demonstrated a highly sensitive hybrid immunostaining method that does not increase background staining.

The Power of Special Imaging to Visualize Colocalization

For colocalization of two antigens in multiplex staining, spectral imaging analysis offers an advantage of unmixing the double staining patterns into two single staining images. Thus, visual contrast of reaction products is no longer a requirement. Spectral imaging can even be applied to quadruple IHC using various HRP and AP substrates.
