Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) in Mouse T-cell Lines

This work describes a protocol for chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) using a mature mouse T-cell line. This protocol is suitable to investigate the distribution of specific histone marks at specific promoter sites or genome-wide.

Carl Beckett VP of Business Development will be discussing how AFA can control nucleation and crystal distribution on June 21 at the Cambridge R&D Process Development Seminar.

Adaptive Focused Acoustics Processing to Aid Recovery of Fungi from CF Patient Sputum Samples

Background: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that afflicts over 70,000 people worldwide. It is characterized by viscous mucus that accumulates in the lungs creating challenges for microbiology labs processing sputa toisolates lower growing fungal species. Our laboratory attempted to liquefy and homogenize mucoid sputum samples by exposure to Adaptive Focused Acoustics™ (AFA) in order to increase recovery of fungal pathogens.
