New Product Watch: Jul 19, 2011


Kinexus Bioinformatics has expanded its KiNET DataBank by launching the KiNet-Antibody Microarray website. The open access, online resource features over 1.5 million measurements of the levels and phosphorylation status of over 400 distinct protein kinases and their targets in over 2,000 tissue and cell specimens, according to the firm.

The data was generated in-house at Kinexus using its Kinex antibody microarrays. The Vancouver, Canada-based firm said that KiNet-AM complements its KiNet-Immunoblotting DataBase. Launched in 2005, KiNet-IB contains over 200,000 measurements of protein phosphorylation and expression as determined with Kinexus' Kinetworks multi-immunoblotting technology.

Nordson Asymtek has launched its automated workcell, which combines its MH-910W same-side loader/unloader and its Spectrum S-920N dispenser.

The new workcell was developed for processing 150 millimeter film-frame wafers but can also handle different sizes. It can be used in jet dispensing of biochip reagents, wafer coating for imaging equipment like digital light processing, image sensor capping, and jetting of thin layer of coatings before laser dicing to minimize dust produced by ablation fall-out during the dicing process.
