Agar Scientific launches uranium-free UA-Zero® EM Stain
Agar Scientific has unveiled the latest addition to its range of microscopy stains, UA-Zero® EM Stain, a non-radioactive alternative to the traditional Uranyl Acetate. UA-Zero is a direct replacement for Uranyl Acetate, offering comparable results from the same standard processes, while simultaneously eliminating the safety and logistical issues associated with stains derived from uranium. For decades, electron microscopists worldwide have relied on Uranyl Acetate solution for staining biological samples, however, it can be hard to obtain and is subject to stringent and restrictive regulations – as well as additional costs – when it comes to transportation, use and disposal. UA­Zero is a new, efficient, non-toxic, uranium-free alternative that delivers comparable results to Uranyl Acetate, and can be directly substituted into existing laboratory protocols. In contrast to uranyl acetate, it does not require specialist handling and disposal, and can be exported worldwide

Piezo nanopositioning A key enabler of super-resolution microscopy
Piezo nanopositioning
A key enabler of super-resolution microscopy The days of looking down the lens of a microscope are fast being eclipsed by super-resolution microscopy (SRM) that allows researchers to investigate and understand intracellular processes and interactions at a molecular level. Given the significant improvement in resolution achieved by SRM techniques, the ability to position samples and objectives accurately is obviously a key requirement to fully exploit the capabilities of these systems. Fortunately, piezo positioning systems – already considered the gold standard for the fine positioning of both sample stages and objectives in a broad range of microscopy techniques – offer the sub-nanometre accuracy required. Piezo actuators are currently used for three main applications in SRM: Z-positioning of objectives, manipulation of illumination systems (such as in light sheet and 4Pi techniques), and positioning of sample stages. Each of these applications obviously has unique requirements in terms of range of travel, reproducibility

Ingenza embarks on ConBioChem collaboration
Ingenza has joined forces with leading universities and industrial partners to participate Ingenza has joined forces with leading universities and industrial partners to participate in the ConBioChem collaboration, a translational project focused on the development of novel platform technologies for the continuous bio-production of commodity chemicals. The consortium, led by Professor Gill Stephens of the University of Nottingham, recently achieved success in the Industrial Biotechnology Catalyst – a multi-million pound competition funded by Innovate UK, BBSRC and EPSRC – resulting in the award of £3.46 million over a five-year period. The consortium includes industrial partners Ingenza, Lucite, the Centre for Process Innovation, Green Biologics and Chain Biotech – along with the University of Nottingham, University College London and the University of Cambridge – and aims to develop new industrial biotechnology-based routes to commodity chemicals, moving away from fossil fuel and petrochemical-derived building blocks.

Customer stories integral to new website redesign
Syrris, a world leader in flow chemistry, batch chemistry reactor and chemistry scale-up s Syrris, a world leader in flow chemistry, batch chemistry reactor and chemistry scale-up systems, has recently launched a new website accompanied by a logo redesign. With an array of innovative products alongside its award-winning R&D, it was time that Syrris’ online presence reflected the energy and personality of the company; a rebrand was in order. The fresh website was designed with customers in mind, following a consultation with chemists to evaluate the appeal of different design aesthetics and determine the overall look and feel. The new layout simplifies the process of finding product and application information, and provides easy access to the support team. Supporting scientists in their research is central to Syrris’ mission, and customer stories are helpfully collated in one place on the website. Nothing is more exciting for the company than seeing its products involved in the latest cutting-edge research, whether synthesizing quantum dots, developing

Dolomite Bio offers single-cell RNA-Seq to tackle kidney res
Scientists at the Epigenetics in Human Health and Disease Laboratory, Monash University, A Scientists at the Epigenetics in Human Health and Disease Laboratory, Monash University, Australia, have adopted Dolomite Bio’s Single Cell RNA-Seq System to further their research into animal models of diabetic nephropathy. Mark Ziemann, research fellow and next generation sequencing specialist, explained: “Previously, we’ve run bulk RNA sequencing on these animal models, and discovered a lot of variability coming from different cell types in the kidney. Single cell RNA-Seq will help us disentangle the major cell types involved in the disease from those which are not, and determine which cells interact with the immune system. Given that this will be an ongoing focus of our research, we thought we’d invest in our own instrument for the benefit of the 65-strong department.” “We chose Dolomite Bio’s system because it’s open and flexible, offering us the possibility of looking at epigenetic modifications – such as single-cell chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing

Rainin TerraRacks™ help advance neurological research
The neuroimmunology laboratory at Nuovo Ospedale S. Agostino Estense di Baggiovara in Mode Biologist Dr Roberta Bedin explained: “Most of the laboratory’s work is specialist diagnostic testing of cerebrospinal fluid from patients suffering from neurological diseases, but we also carry out research into conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy.” “I have used Rainin LTS pipettes – single and multichannel – for many years, and find them easy to handle, light weight and accurate. The multichannel pipette is especially useful for ELISAs. The LTS tips are well made and not too rigid, and the design of the pipettes allows them to be picked up without using a lot of force. Recently, our stockist suggested we tried TerraRacks. I like the fact that the racks are transparent so that you can see what you are doing and, as the plastic is recyclable, the environmental impact is taken into account. In general, the larger the volume of waste, the greater the cost of disposal. TerraRacks are not only recyclable, they can also be compressed
