Sanford Burnham Prebys Coronascape Bioinformatics Platform
Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute has introduced Coronascape, a specialized version of its Metascape bioinformatics platform designed for big-data analysis of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 research. The La Jolla, California-based research institute said that Coronascape is meant to serve as a multiomics data clearinghouse for efforts to develop effective targets and therapies for the novel coronavirus. SBP developed the web-based Metascape portal in partnership with the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation and the University of California, San Diego.
10x Genomics Chromium Single-Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression
10x Genomics has launched its Chromium Single-Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression solution. Combining the assay for transposase-accessible chromatin using sequencing with gene expression profiling by RNA sequencing, the new product enables researchers to analyze both epigenetic programming and the transcriptome in the same cell.
Bio-Rad Laboratories StarBright Violet 515 Dye for Flow Cytometry
Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched the StarBright Violet 515 (SBV515) dye, the first of a new range of fluorescent nanoparticles for flow cytometry. SBV515 has an excitation maximum at 401 nanometers and emission maximum of 516 nanometers, offering improved brightness to better resolve rare and low antigen density populations. It has a narrow emission profile to reduce spillover into neighboring filters and minimize excitation by other lasers, making it suitable for inclusion in multicolor panels. The dye is not susceptible to photobleaching, delivers high lot-to-lot reproducibility, and is stable at 4° C with no loss of signal, Bio-Rad said.
