Acting and reacting in Life Sciences and Biotechnologies

What is "being bio-reactive"? We define it as opening new doors, exploring new areas, staying informed about breaking news & developments in Life Sciences and the fast evolving world of biology.

Here's a selection of information & events from our blog this week...

Next generation non-invasive DNA collection device

15/06/2016 BY DIMITRI SZYMCZAK

DNA is a useful source of information for research and medicine. It starts by collection, following which it is deciphered by a wide range of analysis, from simple genotyping to deep whole genome sequencing.The most popular way to collect DNA is drawing blood.  Today, there is a buccal sampling method to easily collect DNA with high yields...

Live Cell Imaging: Differentiate ES/iPS from differentiated cells

14/06/2016 BY ALI EL BAYA

In a lot of experimental setups it would be eligible to be able to differentiate human ES and iPS cells from differentiated cells. tebu-bio is pleased to announce their cooperation with Goryo Chemical, a company specialized in probes for Live Cell Imaging. Goryo Chemical recently launched the Kyoto probe 1 (KP-1) which exactly fulfills this... [ Read more ]

Best methods for Circulation miRNA profiling (cmiRNA)

13/06/2016 BY DIMITRI SZYMCZAK

We need to find biomarkers for prognostic, diagnostic and personalised treatment development. Notably to fight cancers that affect tissues. Since biopsies are invasive, it's better to look for biomarkers in body fluids. Indeed, a simple blood sample becomes a kind of 'liquid biopsy' to reveal tissues affections ... [ Read more ]

Designer Nucleosomes - the next generation of epigenetic substrates!

10/06/2016 BY ALI EL BAYA

In eukaryotic cells DNA is packaged in nucleosome units called mono-nucleosomes which consist of a segment of DNA called core DNA (147 bp in length) wound around a histone octamer (Fig 1.). Histone octamers are assembled from 2 copies of the the core histones H2A, H2B, H3, and H4. These mono-nucleosomes are connected. .. [ Read more ]

Cost-efficient pre-optimized transfection reagents

10/06/2016 BY DIMITRI SZYMCZAK

The main challenge when choosing a transfection reagent is that we don't know how it will work with our own cell type of interest. It is also time consuming to find the optimal conditions. Well, here's the solution:   pre-optimised transfection reagents They already cover more than 39 cell types including MEF, Caco-2, MCF-7, HepG2. .. [ Read more ]
