Peakdale Molecular s Peakexplorer GPCR Library, GE Healthcare s CodeLink ADME Rat 16-Assay, and BD Biosciences BD Taq Full DNA Polymerase


Peakdale Molecular this week launched a fourth Peakexplorer GPCR library. The newest edition has more than 1,100 compounds intended for screening against G-protein coupled receptors, including a “novel” chemotype designed to “take advantage” of the manufacturer’s expertise, the company said.

The CodeLink ADME Rat 16-Assay joined GE Healthcare’s gene-expression microarray ranks last week, according to a company statement. The array has a multi-assay chamber allowing the parallel processing of a maximum of 16 samples on each slide, with 1,200 functionally validated oligo ADME probes per array, GE said.

BD Biosciences launched its BD Taq Full DNA polymerase last week, the company said. The enzyme is intended for general PCR, and BD boasts the “highest” yields from “any” DNA template, along with “high efficiency and sensitivity,” and it can be purchased with a hot-start antibody, BD said.
