I would like this site to be a place were principal investigators, graduate students and lab technicians interact, asking for help from one another and hopefully helping others along the way. The blog will have many types of posts including technical posts, video tutorials, webinars, fun posts and general interest stories. But most importantly, I would like to be responsive to the requests of our readership (or should I say contributorship?) and let the discussion go wherever you want to take them. I will endeavor to post content 3-5 times per week so you should be sure to visit often.

Bio-Rad Laboratories announced the launch of its PureBlu™ Nuclear Staining Dyes, high purity formulations that simplify nuclear staining for fluorescence imaging experiments. In cell imaging experiments, DNA binding dyes are used to locate a cell’s nucleus. Current offerings of the most commonly used dyes, DAPI and Hoechst 33342, usually require time-consuming weighing and/or multiple tedious […]

Scientists can now explore nerves in mice in much greater detail than ever before, thanks to an approach developed by scientists at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Monterotondo, Italy. The work, published online today in Nature Methods, enables researchers to easily use artificial tags, broadening the range of what they can study and […]
