Olympus Launches the New CKX53 Culture Microscope

Olympus has launched the CKX53 Culture Microscope. Its main features are a reliable color reproducibility, a compact design, user-friendly operation and quick cell observation thanks to a new phase contrast system. Several research fields -regenerative medicine, drug discovery- rely on continous cell culturing. During these processes, the cells have to be observed to check culture […]

Cancer will be Detected with a Simple Blood Test

Illumina has announced the launch of its spin-off Grail, a company dedicated to implement cancer screenings based on blood tests. Grail will use Illumina’s sequencing technology to detect several cancer types by checking the nucleic acids in the blood. The new test would allow early cancer detection in asymptomatic people, dramatically reducing cancer-related death by treating individuals […]

Clontech Gesicles Improve CRISPR/Cas9 Performance

Clontech has launched the Guide-it CRISPR/Cas9 Gesicle Production System, a new technology that improves CRISPR/Cas9 delivery and reduces its footprint. Cas9 endonucleases and target-specific sgRNAs are encapsulated in cell-derived nanovesicles that can target different cell types via surface glycoproteins. The new system avoids constant Cas9 expression, avoiding off-target effects, and enhances Cas9 delivery to all sorts of […]

New Cell Line Produces Critical Component for Organoid Cultures

Trevigen has released a cell line that produces a fundamental element for propagating organoid cultures. The HA-R-Spondin-Fc293T cells can be used to obtain Roof plate specific Spondin-1 (R-Spondin 1 or RSPO1) as well as RSPO1 media. RSPO1 is critical for the support and proliferation of organoid progenitor stem cells from mice and humans. RSPO1 has been succesfully used to produce stem […]
