Earthquakes disrupt sperm whales' ability to find food
on February 20, 2020 at 3:11 pm
Scientists studying sperm whales have discovered earthquakes affect their ability to find food for at least a year. The research is among the first to examine the impact of a large earthquake on a population of marine mammals, and offers new insight into how top predators such as sperm whales react […]
Methane emitted by humans vastly underestimated
on February 19, 2020 at 4:37 pm
Researchers measured methane levels in ancient air samples and found that scientists have been vastly underestimating the amount of methane humans are emitting into the atmosphere via fossil fuels. The researchers indicate that reducing fossil fuel use is a key target in curbing climate change.
Think all BPA-free products are safe? Not so fast, scientists warn
on February 18, 2020 at 11:22 pm
Using 'BPA-free' plastic products could be as harmful to human health -- including a developing brain -- as those products that contain the controversial chemical, suggest scientists.
Empathy can be detected in people whose brains are at rest
on February 18, 2020 at 8:23 pm
Researchers have found that it is possible to assess a person's ability to feel empathy by studying their brain activity while they are resting rather than while they are engaged in specific tasks.
Simple, fuel-efficient rocket engine could enable cheaper, lighter spacecraft
on February 18, 2020 at 7:37 pm
Researchers have developed a mathematical model that describes how rotating detonation engines work.

Technical Consulting Services
Crosslinking or attachment of one molecule to another using a variety of reagents and reactions. Optimizing hydrophilicity, stability, and activity in the final conjugate.
Adding custom functionality or reactivity to a biomolecule to facilitate further reactions in the preparation of bioconjugates. Activation of proteins, thiolation, PEGylation, etc.
Modifying biomolecules with labels to create detectable conjugates for use in assays or imaging. Biotinylation, fluorescent dyes, fluorescent proteins, or enzyme labels.
ELISA and Fluorescent immunoassays for research or diagnostics. Improve sensitivity, reduce background, enhance reagent stability. Western blotting, single-plex, multiplex, or cell-based assays in many different formats.
Protein Expression & Purification
Enhance protein expression and stability. Develop affinity chromatography or classical methods of protein isolation. Use fusion tags, bioaffinity interactions, or immunoaffinity purifications.
Coupling of affinity molecules to solid phases to create affinity targeting or purification supports. Create array surfaces, microparticles, nanoparticles, and chromatography supports.
Immunogen and vaccine production using the latest carriers and conjugation techniques. New strategies to produce immunogens to modulate allergen reactions. Decrease antibody response to the carrier or crosslinker and maximize response to the hapten.
Conjugation with antibodies or antibody fragments through selected sites. Prepare better biotinylated or fluorescently labeled antibodies having enhanced stability and S/N. Options for preparing ADC conjugates or enzyme conjugates using a variety of antibody scaffolds.
Site Directed Coupling
Conjugation of biomolecules through discrete sites and functional groups to avoid active centers or binding regions. Form reproducible bioconjugates with maximal activity. Large library of reactions and reagents are available to use.
