EMD Group (EMD Millipore Headquarters) at American Association for Cancer Research 2013

3/19/2013 3:33:14 PM

March 19, 2013 -- Get a first-hand introduction to EMD Millipore's groundbreaking SmartFlare™ RNA Detection Probes at AACR. This novel reagent technology allows researchers to detect gene expression in live, intact cells - overcoming the limitations of lysed or fixed cell populations and yielding more physiologically relevant information. SmartFlare™ RNA detection probes offer:

• Identification of cell types and cell sorting based on RNA expression levels without transfection reagents or intrusive sample preparation

• A single incubation step using inert nanoparticle technology to specifically detect native RNA

• Ability to use the same cells in downstream assays

To schedule an interview appointment in advance of AACR, please contact: Leslie Eisenberg, Feinstein Kean Healthcare, or (617) 244-3872.
