New Products: UHLPC Columns from Agilent and More


Agilent this week introduced its new high definition Zorbax 300-SB-C3 and 300-Diphenyl 1.8µm columns for reversed-phase liquid chromatography.

The new C3 phase broadens selectivity and improves peak shape and recovery for larger proteins while the diphenyl phase provides additional selectivity through pi-pi interactions with aromatic amino acids, the company said.

Bio-Rad has launched its new Mini-Protean TGX Stain-Free precast gels with a trihalo compound that allows for fluorescent detection of proteins without staining.

The gels allow for protein separation, imaging, and analysis in 20 minutes, compared to up to two hours for standard Coomassie protocols, the company said.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
