Invitrogen, SIRS-Lab


Invitrogen has launched the first high-density human protein microarray. The ProtoArray Human Protein Microarray contains more than 1,800 human proteins from the kinase, membrane-associated, cell-signaling, and metabolic protein classes (see p. 1 article for more).

SIRS-Lab has introduced the Lab-Arraytor Training chip for hands-on training of gene-expression experiments. The chip contains 40 specific genes from the lipopolysaccharide signal transduction pathway and is intended solely for educational use (see p. 6 for more information).
