Do-Coop Technologies, Molecular Devices


Or-Yehuda, Israel-based Do-Coop Technologies this week announced the launch of Neowater, a water-based reagent for use in microarray analysis, the company said in a statement. The company said that the reagent can be used in nucleic acid or protein amplification and purification applications.

The product is the first in a series of “water-based reagents” the company plans to introduce into the research tools market this year. Neowater is composed of water containing extremely low concentrations of nanoparticles.

Molecular Devices last week introduced the AquaMax DW4 liquid handling system that integrates four-fluid dispensing and washing in one instrument that can handle 96-, 384-, and 1536-well microtiter plates. The product includes software for programming dispense and wash procedures.
