The Reagent Project

  Hi Guys, we wanted to let you know about a cause we recently came across that we’d love you, as our customers, to get involved with. The Reagent Project is a non profit organisation based in New York who collect in date reagents and lightly used lab equipment and donate them to scientists around

High-fidelity DNA Polymerases & When to use them

Taq polymerase is the tried and true standard when it comes to PCR, but that doesn’t mean it’s the most accurate polymerase for high-sensitivity applications. Instead, alternative enzymes, known as high-fidelity polymerases, offer higher accuracies in the amplicons resulting from PCR thanks to a combination of more stringent base reading and proofreading activities. While you

Everything You Need to Know about Taq Polymerase

Taq polymerase is one of the most ubiquitous enzymes in molecular biology. Since its discovery in 19651, Taq has become the backbone of PCR and all the downstream applications that technology enables. This powerful polymerase is the default choice for most amplification and cloning procedures, as well as diagnostic tests, marker gene DNA sequencing, and

Bead Beating & Homogenisation
Bead Beating & Homogenisation

Homogenisation is a popular method of cell disruption through lysis (breaking up) the sample using a homogeniser. This is achieved through mixing at high speeds in tubes with either steel, glass (silica) or zirconium beads added to grind the sample and release subcellular contents of DNA, RNA and proteins. There are lots of homogenisers on
