Bio-Rad this week launched its new Protean i12 IEF system, an isoelectric focusing system that can run up to 12 immobolized pH gradient strips in 12 independently programmed lanes.

The system will enable researchers to test multiple optimization conditions simultaneously and run samples from different experiments together, reducing the time to results, the company said.

Grace Bio-labs this week released its new SuperNova nitrocellulose thin-film slides for use with fluorescence detection in microarrays. The slides offer high protein binding capacity while maintaining low levels of background fluorescence, the company said.
