Colm Ryan on Mycoplasma Detection Kits and New Genomics Products

We recently sat down virtually with Assay Genie co-founder and CEO Colm Ryan to catch up on their latest tools for genomics and cell culture.
For the detection of neutralizing antibodies of SARS-CoV-2, sELISA kits offer a convenient alternative to neutralization tests, as they can be used under standard laboratory safety conditions. A recent study compared two commercially available kits and tested their specificity and selectivity.

The 8 Best Green Fluorescent Calcium Indicators

With so many possibilities, it can be difficult and tedious to select the appropriate calcium indicator for a given calcium ion flux assay. To streamline the process, here is what we consider to be the eight best single-wavelength, green fluorescent calcium indicators available.

How to Select a Calcium Indicator?

Fluorescent indicators that show spectral responses upon binding calcium have enabled researchers to investigate changes in intracellular free calcium concentrations by using fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, fluorescence spectroscopy and fluorescence microplate readers.
