New technical information including software updates and documentation is now available free of charge over the Internet for a line of open chemistry real-time PCR systems.

Bibby Scientific (Staffordshire, United Kingdom) has announced that these materials for its Techne division's PrimeQ line of qPCR instruments can be downloaded from Techne's website.

The PrimeQ real-time PCR system has been designed with an open architecture and chemistry format that allows user flexibility in qPCR methods and research pursuits. The supporting Quansoft software provides an easy to use comprehensive data analysis package with the flexibility to edit experiment setup even after the run is complete. The open chemistry format, use of universal consumables, and large variety of excitation and emission filters allows users maximum flexibility while minimizing costs.

The new technical and application notes available for download cover topics ranging from the principle of absolute quantification analysis and high resolution melting through to minimizing sample volumes and an analysis of different manufacturers’ consumable kits.

Jim Bratherton, Techne product manager at Bibby Scientific said, “PrimeQ is an economical investment for three reasons. Firstly, our policy to provide free software licenses and upgrades for life; secondly, the 96-well format of PrimeQ allows the use of almost any low-profile qPCR plates; and thirdly, the open chemistry format of PrimeQ provides the ability to use most manufacturer’s reagent kits.”

Activated B-cells give rise germinal centers (shown in red), where mature B-cells proliferate and produce highly specific antibodies against pathogens.

Experimental Small-Molecule Anticancer Drug Blocks RAS-binding Domains

The experimental small-molecule anticancer drug rigosertib was shown to block tumor growth by acting as an RAS-mimetic and interacting with the RAS binding domains of RAF kinases, resulting in their inability to bind to RAS, which inhibited the RAS-RAF-MEK pathway. Oncogenic activation of RAS genes due to point mutations... Read more
