Caliper Life Sciences this week introduced the LabChip GXll microfluidic-based benchtop system for separations directed at protein and genomics applications.
The instrument has 96- and 384-well plate compatibility and the ability to select single wells at any location in a plate, Caliper said in a statement. It replaces the LabChip 90 system and provides consistent and precise analysis of both protein and nucleic acid samples.
The company also launched the LabChip GX system for genomics applications this week.
GE Healthcare this week launched version 7 of the ImageMaster 2D Platinum software package for analysis of 2D gel data.
New features include well-established methods for all 2D experiments, including single stain and 2D DIGE; easy import and image viewer functionality; and effective spot detection and matching solutions, GE said in a statement.
ImageMaster was developed by GE in collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics and GeneBio, and is powered by Melanie gel analysis software.
