One-Step RT-qPCR Reagent

Use the Reliance One-Step Multiplex Supermix from Bio-Rad Laboratories for sensitive amplification of up to five targets in a single reaction. Expertly formulated with high-performance enzymes and advanced reaction buffer, this robust supermix delivers reproducible, real-time quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) performance in a multiplex fashion, and can handle challenging templates, difficult targets, or even PCR inhibitors. With its exceptional room temperature stability (up to 24 h) for assembled reactions, it can be easily integrated into an automated workflow. Reliance One-Step Multiplex Supermix is ideal for multiplexed RT-qPCR, especially for pathogen/viral detection and high-throughput screening applications.

Whole-Genome Assembly

NRGene announces DeNovoMAX, a new product that aims to empower breeding and maximize agricultural yield as part of the de novo assembly product suite offered by the company. DeNovoMAX is a lean version of the legacy DeNovoMAGIC platform, which has been cited many times in scientific literature due to the high quality of its results. The two assembly products complement one another: DeNovoMAGIC relies on high coverage to provide a full-service genome assembly for all organisms (regardless of complexity), whereas DeNovoMAX maximizes efficiency by using a leaner library setup with minimal compromise in quality. DeNovoMax is designed to meet the applicative genomics needs of professional breeders and will be available for the most popular homozygote species, including wheat, tobacco, tomato, pepper, cotton, corn, soybean, sunflower, and more.

CRISPR/Cas9 Genome Knockout Kits

OriGene offers genome-wide CRISPR gene knockout/knockin kits containing two guide RNA (gRNA) vectors and donor DNA. The selection marker in the donor cassette greatly facilitates the screening process. Two types of CRISPR knockout kits are offered: homology-based or nonhomology based. OriGene's HDR-mediated knockout kit is its first-generation gene knockout kit, and uses homology-directed repair (HDR). The KN2.0 gene knockout kit is an improved version, and uses nonhomology-based repair. The KN2.0 CRISPR knockout kit is more efficient and works in both dividing and nondividing cells.

CRISPR and RNAi Lentiviral Library Construction

Get the right custom library for your screen! Cellecta offers a comprehensive range of CRISPR and RNA interference (RNAi) custom library options that can target virtually any defined sequences and accommodate your most challenging projects. The company has over 15 years of experience making high-quality single-guide RNA (sgRNA) and short hairpin RNA (shRNA) pooled libraries. Its custom sgRNA and shRNA constructs and library service can easily accommodate standard and nonstandard oligo designs for specialized applications, including CRISPR KO, CRISPRa, CRISPRi, and CRISPRa SAM complex compatible libraries; single-cell applications that use guides with specific capture sequences; designs that combine barcodes or unique molecular identifiers (UMIs) with shRNAs; and sgRNAs that are compatible with other CRISPR-Cas proteins.

DNA Library Prep Kit

The Lotus DNA Library Prep Kit enables streamlined preparation of high-quality next-generation sequencing (NGS) libraries from double-stranded DNA. The kit uses enzymatic fragmentation to generate libraries suitable for PCR-free, PCR-amplified, and targeted sequencing applications on Illumina platforms. It can be customized for many applications (whole-genome sequencing; PCR-free sequencing; detection of germline-inherited single-nucleotide variations [SNVs] and insertions/deletions [indels]; hybridization capture of target sequences [e.g., the exome or transcripts of interest]; low-frequency somatic variation detection of SNVs and indels; RNA-seq starting with full-length, double-stranded complementary DNA input; and metagenomic sequencing) when combined with one of the many Integrated DNA Technology adapter options. Additionally, use of xGen hybridization-capture products provides a complete NGS solution that takes you from sample preparation to sequencing.

DNA/RNA Sample Collection

DNA/RNA Shield from Zymo Research is a preservation solution that provides safe containment and maintains the integrity of collected samples for later downstream molecular analysis. This preservative is available for custom filling or in an assortment of collection devices that enable swab collection of saliva, blood, feces, soil, sludge, and wastewater samples. Specimens collected into the preservative can be stored at ambient temperature for many weeks. In addition, pathogen inactivation allows the samples to be safely transported and shipped. By eliminating the need to remove the reagent for DNA/RNA purification, the process has been streamlined even further, making the collected samples amenable to most commercially available manual or automated workflows.
