Molecular Beacons
Molecular Beacons are structured probes that are highly sensitive, sequence specific, and are used for sequence detection in qPCR and in vitro studies.
Dual-Labeled Probes
Dual-Labeled Probes are the most common probe type for qPCR and are often referred to as hydrolysis probes.
Safe Lentivirus Handling
Our lentiviral vector systems are developed with enhanced safety features. Numerous precautions are in place in the design of our lentiviruses to prevent replication. Good handling practices are a must.
What Is ZFN Technology?
Zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs) are a class of engineered DNA-binding proteins that facilitate targeted editing of the genome by creating double-strand breaks in DNA at user-specified locations.
Genome-wide Collection of Lenti 3’UTR Reporters for Functional Validation of microRNA Targets
Sigma-Aldrich presents an article about microRNAs (miRNAs), which are a class of naturally occurring small non-coding RNA molecules that regulate a variety of developmental and physiological processes.
