announced today the addition of the BenchBot Robot to its line of automated microplate managing apparatus. Within Agilent’s Automation Solutions instrumentation portfolio, the BenchBot complements the Direct Drive BenchCel and Robot Microplate Handler. Ideal for a multitude of applications, the BenchBot features: a concise, scalable design to support a number of laboratory products and readers; simple, one-contact teaching for easy integration and fast set up; VWorks software scheduling to increase throughput of a cohesive automation system; easy integration with an increase of than 100 laboratory gadgets for maximum flexibility; and compatibility with labware – including PCR microplates, deep-well microplates, filter microplates, tube racks, and most suggestion boxes – that complies with the requirements established by the American National Requirements Institute/Culture for Biomolecular Screening.Finnish Hound ataxia is usually an individual gene defect, inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. According to the research, 10 percent of Finnish Hounds bears the recessive ataxia mutation within their genome. A genetic test has been created for breeding purposes. The test has enabled to recognize disease carriers, and when mated with noncarriers, they too could be used in breeding applications. If all carrier canines were excluded by breeders, the genetic diversity of the breed of dog could possibly be affected.
