Thermo Fisher Scientific Applied Biosystems HIV-1 Genotyping Kit

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched the Applied Biosystems HIV-1 Genotyping Kit, a research-use-only assay that can be used to examine positive samples of HIV to identify genetic variants that resist common antiretroviral therapeutics. The assay is designed for use on Applied Biosystems Sanger sequencing CE instrumentation with HIV RNA extracted from EDTA plasma or dried blood spots, and measures genomic mutations in the protease, reverse transcriptase, and integrase regions of the pol gene, Thermo Fisher said.

Bio-Rad Laboratories StarBright Violet and UltraViolet Dyes

Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched three new dyes for flow cytometry: StarBright Violet 760, StarBright UltraViolet 575, and StarBright UltraViolet 605 dyes. The dyes are excited by violet and ultraviolet lasers and are compatible with the Bio-Rad ZE5 Cell Analyzer and S3e Cell Sorter, as well as most flow cytometers, Bio-Rad said.

Qiagen QiaSeq Targeted DNA Pro Panels and UPXome RNA Library Kit

Qiagen has launched a targeted DNA sequencing library prep product called QiaSeq Targeted DNA Pro Panels. The panels reduce library preparation time for sequencing samples to six hours.

The firm has also launched a low-input kit for RNA sequencing called UPXome RNA Library Kit for 3' RNA sequencing as well as complete transcriptome RNA sequencing.
