What barriers will you break,
with the NEW Fragment Analyzer FEMTO Pulse?

femto-pulse-instrumentDetect 1 femtogram/µl.
Separate 165,000 bp in 1 hour.

The FEMTO Pulse is a revolutionary instrument for the analysis of nucleic acids. Capable of detecting down to 1 fg/µl of sample and accurately sizing fragments and smears through 165,000 bp, the FEMTO Pulse is breaking all the QC barriers.

The FEMTO Pulse has all the separation advantages of pulsed-field electrophoresis, but is able to complete a separation 15-20X faster than the current method while automating the analysis.

The combination of femtogram level sensitivity and accurate sizing of very large nucleic acid fragments and smears allows the FEMTO Pulse to break analytic barriers.

gelred gtshomepage   gelredgtshomepage6

GelRed™ is a next-generation fluorescent nucleic acid gel stain designed to replace the highly toxic ethidium bromide (EtBr).  Developed by scientists at Biotium,  GelRed™ is superior to EtBr and other EtBr alternatives by having a combination of low toxicity, high sensitivity and exceptional stability. It is a direct replacement for ETBr due to its almost identical spectrum.

 

GelGreen™ is a sensitive, stable and environmentally safe green fluorescent nucleic acid dye designed to stain either dsDNA, ssDNA or RNA in agarose gels.  GelGreen is far more sensitive & stable (both hydrolytically and thermally) than SYBR dyes like SYBR Safe.
