Join us in booth 1323 at SfN’s 47th annual meeting, Neuroscience 2017 to learn about new and established products that make your lab life easier through automation and workflow. From our new Volumescope system to the latest addition to the Thermo Scientific NanoDrop family of products, we invite you to ask our representatives about the products that are important to you. While you’re there complete our scavenger hunt card and check out our virtual reality game.
Validation symposium addressing the antibody reproducibility crisis: New standards and testing methodologies
Every year, millions of dollars are wasted on poorly characterized and performing antibodies. Key researchers in the antibody community have addressed this antibody reproducibility crisis and the need to develop standards to ensure proper characterization and consistency for antibodies in the laboratory. Join us for a breakfast presentation to discuss new standards for reproducibility and new testing methods to ensure antibodies bind to their intended targets.
Presenter: Deepa B. Shankar, Director R&D, Antibodies & Immunoassays

Unraveling the complex 3D architecture of cells and tissues in their natural context is crucial for structure–function correlation. The Thermo Scientific Volumescope system’s tight integration and extensive automation enable a novel serial block-face imaging (SBFI) solution enabling excellent z-resolution from Multi-Energy Deconvolution SEM (MED-SEM) combined with in situ sectioning. Its brand-new SEM platform’s user guidance and hardware updates ensure fast, easy analysis so you can focus on science.
The EVOS FL Auto 2 Imaging System is a high-performance fully-automated inverted multi-channel fluorescence and transmitted light imaging system. The powerful and time-saving acquisition tools with enhanced autofocus algorithms and automated routines allow you to generate publication quality images and data in seconds, when and where needed.
Quantify and qualify DNA, RNA, and protein samples in seconds with only 1-2 µL with the Thermo Scientific NanoDrop One Microvolume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer. Innovative Thermo Scientific Acclaro Sample Intelligence technology is built into every instrument for improved measurement accuracy and contaminant identification. Prevent costly delays with an enhanced understanding of sample quality.
Capture images and analyze data from your western blots and gels efficiently and easily using the Invitrogen iBright Imaging Systems. These high-performance instruments enhance the western blotting experience through advanced automated features and an interface that is easy to use for researchers of all experience levels. Be empowered to take on your research challenges and discover western blot imaging designed to work for you.
Rapidly isolate pure cell populations for microgenomic analysis. The ArcturusXT LCM instrument has a proprietary combination of a gentle IR laser and a powerful UV laser that work in conjunction to efficiently isolate cells without changing morphology or integrity of the biological content.
The B-27 Plus Neuronal Culture System is an evolution of the most cited neuronal cell culture products, B-27 Supplement and Neurobasal Medium. It features an optimized formulation, upgraded manufacturing process, and more stringent quality control of raw materials and final product. These improvements enable the highest neuronal cell survival, improved electrophysiological activity, and enhanced functional maturity versus other neuronal cell culture media systems.
