Reduce Static Electricity on Liquid Handlers | Throughout dry winter periods the air humidity changes. This change can cause a buildup of static electricity in the air
and on plastic liquid handling tips for automated liquid handlers.
Nucleic acid extraction lies at the beginning of almost every molecular biology-based workflow. Although the principle behind it is simple, when done poorly, it can have a significant impact on final experimental results. If working with patient samples, maintaining sample integrity becomes even more essential and reliable results are paramount to ensuring a fast and accurate diagnosis.
Timely Identification, Tracking and Mitigation of Future Outbreaks | We could have prevented the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak from developing into a pandemic, but we did not have an adequate surveillance system that could detect novel threats, particularly those that can be carried by asymptomatic carriers.
Bill Venier, M.Sc, TS, ELD (ABB) and Deb Venier, MS, TS, of World Embryology Skills and Training (W.E.S.T.) draw from their many years of experience in the embryology lab to discuss their perspective on non-invasive PGT-A.
The PerkinElmer® COVID-19 Antigen Test has been approved by the National Sanitary Surveillance Agency of Brazil (ANVISA) as a Class III in vitro diagnostic (IVD) device. This approval authorizes the sale, distribution, and use of PerkinElmer’s 15-minutes antigen test in Brazil for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2, with nasal or nasopharyngeal swabs. The PerkinElmer® COVID-19 Antigen test is an accurate and efficient product to screen for the presence of COVID-19.
