Genovis, Applied Biosystems

Genovis has recently introduced NIMT FeOfection Purple, a reagent designed for the transfection of siRNAs into suspension cell lines such as K562 and Jurkat cells.

Applied Biosystems recently announced the development of the Solid Whole Transcriptome Expression Kit, a sequencing-based molecular tool for the genomic analysis of whole transcriptomes.
“The kit is designed to provide new views of a cell's transcriptome, such as expression of non-coding RNAs, identification of alternative splicing events, expressed SNPs or mutations, or translocations and fusion transcripts,” the company said in a statement.
The kit is expected to become available through an early-access program in November.
