Ready-to-use protein stain
RAPIDstain™, from G-Biosciences, St Louis, is an ultrasensitive and ready-to-use protein stain based on Coomassie dye. No mixing or preparation is required. Users rinse gel, add the stain, and protein bands will develop within 5 to 10 minutes, reaching a maximum visibility in less than 1 hour. The product only stains protein, leaving a crystal-clear background resulting in high band visibility. The gels require no destaining and are sensitive enough to detect as little as 4 to 8 ng BSA. Staining shows a linear response for densitometric gel analysis and produces sharp scanning or photographic results. RAPIDstain is supplied in a 1L container, which is sufficient reagent to stain up to 50 mini gels (8 x 10 cm), or in a 1-gallon size for staining up to 200 mini gels.
DNA Extraction Kits
For use with the PapilloCheck HPV test
Greiner Bio-One, Frickenhausen, Germany, launches two variants of a specially adapted DNA extraction kit for its cervical (cervix uteri) cancer test system, PapilloCheck. By expanding the product portfolio for the test system, the company now offers a simple and rapid complete solution for detection of human papilloma viruses. The two DNA Extraction Kits, certified as CE-IVD (in vitro diagnostics) suitable for isolating human and viral DNA, are specially developed for extraction of the DNA from uterine cervix smears for subsequent analysis with PapilloCheck. Depending on the sample frequency or volume, two different extraction kit processing methods can be applied: either single-column processing using centrifugation or processing eight columns applying a vacuum system.
