MVS Volume Verification Using Any Microtiter Plate or Small Volume Container
by Keith J. Albert, Ph.D., ARTEL This application note discusses methods for measuring target volumes (10 nL - 200 μL) dispensed into any microtiter plate or small volume container using the Artel MVS. If a target volume is dispensed into a microtiter plate or small container that cannot be directly inserted into the MVS plate reader, that target volume must be transferred to an MVS-compatible microtiter plate to perform volume measurements........Continue
Rapid, Large-Scale Removal of Albumin and IgG from Human Serum
by Fang-Fang Wu, Steve Freeby, Aran Paulus, Pete Gagnon, and Roger Provost, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. In human serum, albumin contributes more than 60% of total protein, and immunoglobulins, predominantly IgG, contribute 10–25%. The high concentrations of both albumin and IgG obscure low-abundance serum proteins and limit the amount of total serum protein that can be resolved by two-dimensional (2-D) electrophoresis........Continue
Profinia Protein Purification System Simplifies Antibody Purification With Protein A
by Mark Berardini, Sami T. Tuomivaara and Michael G. Hahn Immobilized Protein A from Staphylococcus aureus has been used for many years to purify antibodies from a variety of species (Hjelm et al. 1972). The high selectivity and stability of protein A has made it a popular choice for the purification of antibodies from a wide range of sample sources, including serum, ascitic fluid, and hybridoma cell culture supernatants.......Continue

Advantages of Using an Electronically Commutated Motor in Biosafety Cabinets
by Jim Hunter, Senior Project Engineer - HEPA Filtered Products Group, and Mike Rouse, Test Technician, Labconco Corporation In the 1960s, the motor of choice to drive the Class II Biosafety Cabinet’s blower was the Permanent Split Capacitor type. Because a magnetic field must be induced in the rotor, the PSC motor is asynchronous and as a result is inefficient, generating high amounts of waste heat. Attempting to control the blower speed by reducing its voltage only increases the inefficiency of the PSC motor........Continue
