Life Technologies has released its Qubit 2.0 Fluorometer — a system that quantitates DNA, RNA, and protein. According to the company, the system is particularly useful for samples that are rare, difficult to purify, or expensive to obtain or prepare. The system features an LCD color touch screen and USB port.

Amresco, a biochemical and reagent manufacturer and distributor, has released its Ready PCR Mix, 2X, which will allow researchers to assemble, perform, and analyze multiple reactions. The kit includes non-interfering fluorescent DNA dye in the mix for instant visualization of the PCR amplified bands, and is optimized for PCR-to-gel visualization, according to the company. The mix is particularly useful for colony screening.
