These human cells are similar to embryonic angioblasts

An expanded range of human endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) from Amsbio

AN EXPANDED catalogue of primary and progenitor cell types and media with a new range of human endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) has been announced by Amsbio. These human EPCs are derived from bone marrow and have properties similar to embryonic…

Progenitor cell line supports Crispr/Cas9 gene editing

Amsbio Cultrex progenitor cells suit Crispr gene editing

A RANGE of progenitor cells derived from healthy mouse small intestine tissue will be of particular interest to research groups using BME 2 organoid matrix and specialising in drug screening applications, says Amsbio. The company has extended its product range…

Extract genomic DNA from plant tissue more efficiently

Amsbio's MagSi-DNA Vegetal kit is a two-stage process for genomic DNA extraction from plants

MAGNETIC bead technology has been applied in various laboratory activities, often bringing advantages in terms of speed and convenience when separating samples into compounds of interest. Amsbio says its new MagSi-DNA Vegetal kit brings the convenience and cost effectiveness of…

Recombinant antigens and antibodies to Zika virus

The Zika virus envelope colourfully modelled by Amsbio

ZIKA virus is presently causing significant worldwide concern due its rapid spread across the globe and suggested connection to a neurological birth disorder. The outbreak began in Brazil in 2015 and has since spread throughout South and Central America, and…

CRISPR cloning kits for precise genome editing

Highly targeted gener editing is promised with Amsbio's Crispr gRNA lentivector cloning kits

CRISPR/Cas gene editing is a relatively new technique which offers high accuracy in gene targeting and better target sequence selection, with less complexity and less off-target toxicity than previous genome editing technologies. Amsbio provides a standalone premade Cas9 expression lentivirus,…

Qualified human feeder cells for iPSC reprogramming

A NEW range of human feeder cells from Amsbio are qualified for induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) reprogramming.  These newborn human foreskin fibroblasts, available under the trade name NuFF-RQ, are validated to support iPSC colony generation, providing an optimised feeder…

Faster next-generation sequencing with these RNA kits

NEXT-generation sequencing (NGS) is set of relatively new technologies that are having a big impact on scientific research in fields including biomarkers, diagnostics, and drug discovery. Although the term is applied to a number of different systems, not all of…

How to engineer surfaces for specific cell adhesion properties

A NEW mimetic library of extracellular matrices has been launched by Amsbio. Including almost 300 biomimetics of fibronectin, vitronectin, laminin, and collagen, the new extracellular matrix (ECM) library should prove useful for engineering the surfaces of plates or scaffolds to achieve…
