Dharmacon s siGenome and Cisbio International s HTRF Assays


Dharmacon has recently introduced additional siRNA reagents targeting the mouse and rat genomes to the company’s existing siGenome human siRNA collection.

According to the company, the siGenome collection consists of more than 300,000 highly functional siRNA reagents including Smartpool siRNA reagents, Smartselection-designed target gene siRNA sets, and individual Smartselection-designed siRNA duplexes targeting all unique genes in the NCBI RefSeq database. The mouse and rat siRNA additions to siGenome are available online at

Cisbio International said it has added kinase and ubiquitin toolboxes to its portfolio of HTRF (homogenous time-resolved fluorescence) assays for high-throughput screening. The new toolboxes will cover a broad range of kinase and polyubiquitination-related targets, Cisbio said.
