Molecular Biology & Genetics Equipment
Cross-disciplinary methods occur in the fields of molecular biology and genetics in the medical, educational, environmental and agricultural sectors. This overlap is most evident in the study of molecular genetics. One of the most basic applications used is the creation of DNA gene expression plasmids via cloning and subcloning, which rely on well-established methods such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), restriction digestion, and bacterial transformations. Recent advances in the field, including microarray analysis, quantitative Real-Time PCR (qRT-PCR), and next-generation sequencing are generating vast amounts of data.Microbiology and genetic research also use liquid handling equipment for reagent sampling and transfers, DNA samples and reagent storage, centrifuges to isolate and separate, and growth chambers and incubators for mutagenesis in model organisms to study methods of inheritance. The product list below features equipment needed to furnish molecular biology and genetics research labs.
