Improved Blood Viral Detection with CleanAmp™ Primers

The development of reliable, high sensitivity assays for viral infection is of the utmost importance for minimizing the prevalence of infections related to the transfusion of infected blood. While original viral detection assays detect antibodies to the virus, these assays are being replaced by nucleic acid tests, which detect viral RNA or viral DNA. Nucleic acid tests have been shown to display improved sensitivity as compared to antibody-based assays, allowing for earlier detection of viral infection in a blood donor.

Could the Current Ebola Outbreak
Have Been Prevented?

  • Deadliest Outbreak Yet Shows no Sign of Abating
  • Lack of Funds Hampered Clinical Development of Drugs and Vaccines
  • Treatments Exist so Why are Doctors Left with no Cure to Offer the Infected?

The fact that the Ebola virus was identified almost 40 years ago and there’s been ongoing research ever since begs the question, “Was the current Ebola outbreak preventable?” Read More

New Reporter Gene mRNA Products

Our selection of stocked mRNA products continues to grow. We’ve recently added dye labeled reporters and new versions of Luc:

Gaussia Luc mRNA is useful in measuring both secreted extracellular protein levels, as well as intracellular protein levels.

Renilla Luc mRNA can be employed as an internal control to test different conditions, such as dosage or chemical modifications, and their effect on translation.
