Syngene, BD Biosciences


Syngene introduced this week its ProteomeScan image scanner. According to the company, the system generates high-resolution 2D gel images in seconds.

ProteomeScan is designed to be used with Syngene’s 2D image analysis software, Dymension. The software can analyze a typical 2D gel image in seconds — faster than other image analysis software, which can take minutes or hours, Syngene said.

BD Biosciences announced last week the availability of the BD FACSArray bioanalyzer, a platform for rapid high-content analysis of proteins in cell biology, immunology, and proteomics. The platform is capable of multiplexed bead-based and cellular assays, BD said.

BD Biosciences Clontech also announced last week the availability of the BD Living Colors AcGFP1, a fluorescent protein derived from the jellyfish Aequorea coerulescens. The company said that AcGFP is an alternative to enhanced GFP, which the company discontinued due to expiration of a product license.
