A shining light in the deep

Professor Peter Karuso, from the Department of Molecular Sciences at Macquarie University, recently set sail on the CSIRO's purpose-built research vessel, the RV Investigator, on a 31 day voyage that covered over 2,600 nautical miles off the Western Australian coast. Peter sampled sponges from 20-120 m depths and assess the correlation between fluorescence in these sponges with the presence of symbiotic cyanobacteria or unicellular algae. On board was the CLARIOstar making fluorescence and absorbance measurements on high sea possible.

BMG LABTECH supports students with their participation in the 2017 iGEM competition

BMG LABTECH, a leading manufacturer of microplate readers, is pleased to announce their continued involvement with IGEM projects, an international team competition open to students interested in synthetic biology. Many projects have been supported since 2009 and this year BMG LABTECH selected five Universities. Three were provided with microplate readers, the University of Dresden, the University of Glasgow, and the University of Cork. Two further universities were supported, the University of Freiburg with financial support and the University of Oxford with extensive supply of consumables.

New gas ramping function enables world’s first in vitro reproduction of ischaemia/reperfusion conditions in a microplate reader

BMG LABTECH developed a new gas ramping function that can fully manipulate the environment within a microplate reader, by mimicking in vitro hypoxia and ischaemia/reperfusion. Equipped with this unique feature, the CLARIOstar® with Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU) is the first plate reader that is able to rapidly return to physiological gas conditions upon active modification of oxygen (02) and carbon dioxide (CO2) tensions within the reader, reproducing disease-specific settings in live cell-based assays. The use of conditions that resemble as close as possible physiological or pathological conditions results in more reliable in vitro data that better translate to in vivo situations.
