Aptamer applications: Flow cytometry

Flow Cytometry Flow Cytometry is a technique used to identify biomarkers on cell surfaces and intracellular molecules. Most flow cytometers use fluorescently labelled antibodies to differentiate between cells…

The stability of aptamers

One of the key benefits of using aptamers instead of antibodies is how you store and use the reagent. Over the past 60 years the stability of oligonucleotides has…

Versatile probes for Flow Cytometry and FACS

Flow cytometry has gained popularity and demand in the field of biology because of its accuracy and potential for high throughput analysis. The use of multiple lasers, affinity ligands…

Aptamers and their application in immunohistochemistry

Immunohistochemistry has helped to make surgical pathology the ‘gold standard’ for tumour diagnosis. Antibodies have been used extensively as molecular probes; however, there have been issues with their specificity,…

Aptamer application: Biomarker discovery

Biomarker Discovery A biomarker is a measurable indicator showing the presence or severity of a disease state. Using biomarkers to differentiate between healthy and diseased cells can enable…
