Biochemistry

Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. Biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life.
A sub-discipline of both biology and chemistry, biochemistry can be divided in three fields; molecular genetics, protein science and metabolism. Over the last decades of the 20th century, biochemistry has through these three disciplines become successful at explaining living processes. Almost all areas of the life sciences are being uncovered and developed by biochemical methodology and research. Biochemistry focuses on understanding how biological molecules give rise to the processes that occur within living cells and between cells, which in turn relates greatly to the study and understanding of tissues, organs, and organism structure and function.
Biochemistry is closely related to molecular biology, the study of the molecular mechanisms by which genetic information encoded in DNA is able to result in the processes of life.

Bio-Analyzer

The system integrates an instrument, data processing software, reagents and a microfluidic chip specific for DNA, RNA or Protein analysis.

Consumables

  • Kits for RNA and DNA qantification.

Incubators

These are designed to provide optimal conditions for cell growth, some type of agitation or shaking is necessary to incorporate oxygen and evenly distribute nutrients throughout the culture media. That’s often done by placing a separate shaker inside an incubator, but incubator shakers combine those functions for more convenient and efficient setup. The incubator shaker can be used for the growth of just about any kind of cell including bacterial cultures, tissue cultures and yeast. Incubator Shaker set-ups range from compact, benchtop systems to large-capacity, floor-stackable units the size of a large freezer.

Consumables

  • Spare Clamps
  • Anhydrous Media
  • Flask and Tubes

SDS Page Unit

The unique design of the Mini Gel Tank allows you to run mini gels quickly, easily
and leak-free without any clamps or grease. The set-up time is only 30 seconds; just
drop the cassette clamps into the electrophoresis tank, insert the gels and pull the
cassette clamp forward. The perfect no-leak seal results in no mess and consistent
performance.
