Genetix s QTray and OriGene Technologies Cytochrome P450 CloneSet


Genetix has announced the launch of QTray, its newest bioassay tray.

The QTray is designed for large-scale culture and screening of bacterial and yeast libraries, and has been redeveloped with a focus on convenience and facilitation of rapid workload management, the company said.

The product features vents beneath its lid to avoid condensation formation, and has level fill lines around the tray base to facilitate media pouring without prior measurement.

In addition, the company said, the QTray has a large surface area and is automation-compatible.

OriGene Technologies has added the cytochrome P450 CloneSet, a complete set of more than 60 full-length cytochrome P450 cDNA clones, to its TrueClone product line.

Cytochrome P450 proteins are a family of mono-oxygenases critical for drug metabolism and the degradation of environmental toxins and mutagens, the company said.

The TrueClone collection of 22,000 full-length cDNAs includes over 75 percent of the NM sequences in the NCBI RefSeq database, the company said, and covers 65 to 80 percent of the predicted human cDNA repertoire.
