New Product Watch: Dec 14, 2010


Amsbio has expanded its menu of universal reference products to include RNA, cDNA, and protein lysate materials for studies involving humans, monkeys, dogs, mice, rats, and chickens.

According to the UK firm, these new products can be used as controls for high-throughput PCR, RNA microarray, and antibody array studies.

Amsbio said its universal RNA can be used as controls for optimizing and troubleshooting single- and two-color microarray studies, while its universal cDNA can be used as gene pools for cloning genes. Amsbio's universal protein lysate can be used as controls for comparison of protein expression and antibody microarray studies, the firm added.
