Qiagen has introduced the Mouse Whole Genome siRNA set V1.0. According to the company, the set comprises siRNAs targeting about 22,300 mouse genes.

The company also recently launched the EpiTech bisulfite kit for standardized sample processing for DNA methylation analysis. The kit was developed in collaboration with Epigenomics.

Qiagen also released two new Qproteome kits, which provide apoptosis and cell signaling researchers with high-purity, highly active mitochondria and plasma-membrane protein preparations, virtually free of contaminating proteins from other cell compartments.
