Bio-Rad: StarBright Dyes
Bio-Rad has launched three new dyes for flow cytometry in its StarBright line. StarBright Blue 700, StarBright Violet 440, and StarBright Violet 610 consist of fluorescent nanoparticles conjugated to flow antibodies. The dyes offer narrow excitation and emission profiles for improved resolution in flow cytometry experiments. They are also resistant to photobleaching and highly stable, with minimal lot-to-lot variation, according to Bio-Rad, which enables researchers to achieve consistent and reproducible staining. The dyes work with all common staining buffers for easy integration into multicolor panels and the chemistry is designed to ensure no loss of signal in fixation.
One Codex Microbiome Sequencing and Analysis Service
One Codex has launched an end-to-end microbiome sequencing and analysis service. The offering includes sample preparation, shotgun metagenomic sequencing, and analysis on One Codex's informatics platform. According to the company's website, customers provide stool samples to One Codex using the company's sample collection kits. The company extracts DNA and performs quality control checks to produce genomic DNA sequencing libraries, which are then sequenced to a depth of 2 million 2-by-150-bp read pairs. Sequencing data is then analyzed against the company's One Codex Database, consisting of 115,000 microbial reference genomes.
Cellecta RNA Spatial Profiling Service
Cellecta has launched an RNA spatial profiling service using NanoString Technologies' GeoMx Cancer Transcriptome Atlas on the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler. As a designated GeoMx Premier Access Site Partner, Cellecta offers spatial transcriptomic analysis using the NanoString CTA and, upon release, to the GeoMx Whole Transcriptome Atlas. Researchers are now able to send fresh-frozen or formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue slides to Cellecta for gene expression profiling and spatial analysis to readily obtain comprehensive gene expression profiles of microenvironments and localized regions within tumors and related fixed tissues, as well as corresponding pathway analyses in a variety of visualization formats.
