Biosite premiered its Triage Meter-Pro at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry in Chicago. The device, a third-generation testing platform, provides rapid quantitative or qualitative results for immunoassays using urine, whole-blood or plasma and features built-in quality control capabilities.
The device is currently available in the US and will launch internationally later this year.

EMD Biosciences launched its ProteoPlex Human Angiogenesis Array. The array provides a complete solution to simultaneously determine the levels of eight angiogenesis-associated cytokines from 10 sera samples or tissue culture supernatants, the company said in a press release.

Qiagen released its EasyExpress Insect Kit II, an update to its EasyExpress Protein Synthesis Insect Kit. The new kit provides higher yields of posttranslationally modified eukaryotic proteins and offers increased flexibility in the use of templates.

Syngene announced that its multi-functional imager, Dyversity is now able to detect protein stained with Deep Purple in seconds. Syngene researchers used a Dyversity system fitted with a Cy-dye lighting module, dual-wave length transilluminator, UV, long-pass and Cy3-dye emission filters to image 1D acrylamide gels containing 1000-0.1 ng of Invitrogen’s molecular weight standard PeppermintStick, the company said in a press release.
