New Products Rapid Hybridization Buffer SwiftFISH ® Rapid Hybridization Buffer reduces hybridization times from 16 hours to 1 hour. It is used as a replacement for standard hybridization buffer to accelerate fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), streamlining workflows in clinical and research labs. The buf- fer works well on multiple sample types and maintains equivalent probe intensity when compared side-by-side with its traditional counterpart. Empire Genomics Human GI Epithelial Cells Gastrointestinal (GI) epithelial cells allow researchers to investigate human intes- tinal, colonic, and gastric epithelial cell physiology, tight junction function and associated dis- eases such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), GI infection, and gastric and colon cancer. These epithelial cells can be efficiently used for high-throughput screening and testing of potential drug compounds, dis- ease modeling, and discovering new GI disease modulators to study GI disease mechanisms. GI epithelial cells can be seeded and maintained in GI media for a week for cell-based valida- tion assays such as drug metabolism studies, cytotoxicity assays, gene-expression profiling, and other GI-related research applications. Cell Applications UniFlow Perchloric Acid Fume Hoods Perchloric acid hoods are engineered for the safe handling of perchloric acids in laboratory procedures. Hoods come in 48", 60", and 72" widths and include a dedicated wash-down and exhaust system. The UniFlow superstruc- ture is constructed of either PVC or type 316 stainless steel, and features unitized dual-wall construction for superior chemical resistance, strength, and durability. Rear drain trough is integral to the superstructure. This fume hood features a dedicated wash-down with integral piping spray nozzles and remote control on right column. HEMCO Particle Analyzer The Horizon™ is a high-throughput, low-volume particle-analysis instrument designed for rapid screening of 2-µm to millimeter-size particles in biophar- maceuticals. Requiring as little as 5µL of sample volume, the Horizon can screen 96 samples in under 2 hours with walk- away automation. The instrument reports standard particle information including histograms and images but also enables key differentiation capabilities between proteinaceous and non-proteinaceous particulates. The system is as easy to operate as a smartphone and uses con- sumables that require no washing and have zero particle carry-over. Results are aggregated and labeled for large datasets, and grouped plots with error bars are provided automatically. The Horizon helps researchers in late-stage candidate selection, formulation development, and manufacturing. Halo Labs HIV Monoclonal Antibodies New and unique monoclonal anti- bodies (mAbs), used for the clinical testing of human immunodeficien- cy virus (HIV), are now available for in vitro diagnostic manufacturing and clinical research applications. The HIV P24 275; HIV P24 114; and HIV P24 antihuman mAbs have all been designed for use as an integral component within a number of enzyme immu- noassay testing procedures. All of these novel mAbs are sourced from mice and processed using various chromatographic techniques to a purity level of >95%. In addition, matched antibody pairs are available (coater/tracer), which greatly aids in product and application development. The Binding Site Single-Cell RNA-Seq Dolomite's Single-Cell RNA-Sequencing system is flexible and open making it accessible for the use of a wider range of reagents and protocols. A cell suspen- sion is loaded into an agitated remote reservoir and beads are injected into a sample loop, ensuring an even load- ing of both cells and beads. Droplets are collected in an output reservoir at approximately 2,800 droplets per sec- ond—allowing for the capture of over 6,000 single cells in 15 minutes. Highly monodisperse droplets are produced with precise control using the pressure pumps. The flow sensors provide real- time display of microscale flow rates and allow for accurate adjustment of flow using the Flow Control Centre software. Droplet production can be monitored with the high-speed camera and microscope system, allowing for real-time control over the quality of droplet formation. Dolomite Bio
