Applied Biosystems, UVP

Applied Biosystems this week released the 8-plex version of its iTRAQ reagents. The new product will give researchers the ability to obtain higher throughput and greater efficiency in conducting biomarker discovery research than label-free methods or with use of reagents with more limited multiplexing.
“The new reagents are intended to make the process of biomarker discovery more productive and to increase the scale of experiments conducted by research laboratories,” the company said in a statement.
The original 4-plex iTRAQ was released in 2004.

UVP last month launched the BioSpectrum 800 Imaging System with Nonlinear Dynamics’ SameSpots Analysis Software. The system is a fully motorized and automated light tight darkroom with high resolution 8.3 megapixel image capture capability. The system accommodates a variety of gel sizes, UVP said in a statement, making it an “affordable” alternative to more expensive and slower 2D laser scans systems.
