Letting you know, that the Quantum Analyser your charitable donations purchased is up and running. Thank you all so much for making this happen
Fragment Analyzer 96
Once we have collected the cells, we face the problem of checking the quality of the DNA in each before proceeding to detailed analysis. If the quality of DNA in any individual cell is not up to scratch, there’s no point in analysing it further and it is discarded. This quality control process is normally laborious and time consuming, but the Fragment Analyser allows us to rapidly check 96 single cells at a time, thereby saving hundreds of man-hours per year, and freeing up our scientists to work on other things.
Bioanalyzer – a machine that can measure tiny amounts of DNA RNA and proteins isolated from cancer cells.
