  COVER STORY
Going Viral—Fluorescent Probes to Image Viruses and Their Host Cell Interactions
Untangling the viral replication pathways from host cell functions is not a straightforward sorting process because viruses hijack cell machinery upon infection, creating cell conditions more conducive for virus production. Thus, the overarching goal of viral research is to understand the interactions between virus and host cell in the context of infection. Advances in imaging technologies, in combination with genetic and genomic approaches, have enabled the detailed characterization of viruses and their interactions with host cells. Read More…

Introducing the Cancer Research Portal

At Life Technologies, we are dedicated to advancing cancer research and the pursuit of a world without cancer. We are here to provide you with the instruments, reagents, and technologies you need to help translate your ideas from basic cancer research to future clinical applications, from bench to bedside.

The newly launched Cancer Research portal is organized into six key research areas—Cancer Genomes, Cancer Stem Cells, Cancer Immunotherapy, Cancer Biomarkers, Epigenetics Research, and Genotype-to-Phenotype Research—and gives you comprehensive access to information on tools and technologies across the Life Technologies portfolio

Online Ordering for Custom Luminex® Assays

Our new online Luminex Custom Tool allows you to customize and design a made-to-order Luminex® assay, and then to either purchase that custom assay or receive an online quote. Alternatively, you can choose from existing Luminex® panels that contain your analytes of interest.

Custom Luminex® multiplex immunoassay kits maximize flexibility in experimental design, permitting the quantitation of one or multiple targeted proteins in unique panels designed by you. For your convenience, each customized panel comes with reagents that are blended, optimized, tested, and designed for use with the Luminex® 100/200™ System, FLEXMAP 3D® System, and the new MAGPIX® Instrument (Luminex Corp.).

Simply choose the species, bead type, and analytes that you need, and Life Technologies will build a kit to your specifications.

Choosing the Right Protein Expression System

There are several protein expression systems available. How do you select the best expression host for your application? Check out our new online selection guide, highlighting the features and advantages of using these host systems:

  • Cell-free (in vitro) expression
  • Bacterial expression
  • Yeast expression
  • Algal expression
  • Insect expression
  • Mammalian expression

From there, it’s easy to compare the methods and consider if you need to scale up your protein expression, or if a new host system could simplify your research
