Challenges and Solutions in the Development and Validation of Molecular-Based Assays
Molecular-based assays provide precise diagnostic tools for the detection of clinically relevant infectious agents. These technologies have demonstrated several advantages over traditional culture-based approaches, including increased sensitivity and specificity, rapid turnaround time, and the ability to multiplex. While molecular-based assays exhibit numerous benefits, great care must be taken to ensure that they are properly validated to guarantee performance and uncompromised data. Read our white paper to explore the common challenges researchers face when developing a novel molecular-based assay and discover how authenticated reference materials can help.See the Solutions
Develop Complex Genetic Circuits in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Complex behavior within eukaryotic cells manifest from layered regulatory networks. To systematically study these pathways, researchers can modulate individual components by building new network architectures. With our two-stage assembly system for creating genetic circuits in yeast, researchers can easily build multiple transcriptional units in parallel, enabling individual elements to be swapped out quickly and easily. Discover how to build your own genetic circuits in yeast with our selection of vectors, promoters, and selection markers.Discover More
