Since its introduction two years ago, Droplet Digital PCR has transformed multiple fields of research, including infectious disease, cancer biomarker analysis, and genomic variation analysis. In this seminar, Dr. David Dodd describes the application of ddPCR in his research studies with Prof. David Corey and colleagues at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. The Corey Lab focuses on using antisense oligonucleotides and duplex RNAs to control gene expression in human cancer cells.

A Simple Way to Label Your Own Antibodies

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 03-13-2014

Bio-Rad Laboratories announced the launch of its ReadiLink antibody labeling kits, one of the market’s simplest antibody conjugation solution for labeling microscale amounts (50–100 µg) of antibody. These kits are ideal for researchers interested in labeling their own antibodies for flow cytometry and cell sorting applications.

Using the ReadiLink antibody labeling kits, researchers can label their antibodies in two easy steps. The protocol takes only 70 minutes, and the labels are as bright and photostable as traditional dyes. Bio-Rad offers 10 different fluorophores whose excitation/emission wavelengths range from UV to infrared.

ReadiLink antibody labeling kits permit fluorophore conjugation of antibodies in two simple steps.

“The labeling kits will benefit a wide range of researchers,” said Mary Ferrero, Bio-Rad Product Manager in the Gene Expression Division, Life Sciences Group. “ReadiLink antibody labeling kits are ideal for researchers who are using a rare antibody, are interested in an antibody that is not commercially available with the appropriate fluorophore, or who want to label an antibody with a fluorophore that will fit into their multicolor flow cytometric experiment.”

Bio-Rad also offers additional reagents and consumables for each step of flow cytometry experiments, such as the ReadiDrop™ cell viability assays and primary antibodies.
