Besides keeping the water bath cleaner, how do Lab Armor Beads protect samples better than water? Product FAQ

Answer

Lab Armor Beads eliminate the possibility of water wicking into the sample and prevent cross-contamination from water dripping off a vessel onto other items on the bench when removing the vessel from the bath. If the bath is accidentally turned off or loses power, Lab Armor Beads maintain temperature up to 5 times longer than water, offering better protection for incubating samples.

How does cell culturing on Nunc Lab-Tek Chambered Coverglass compare with Nunc Lab-Tek II Chambered Coverglass? Product FAQ

Answer

Lab-Tek and Lab-Tek II chambered coverglass products can be plated with cells, incubated, and handled in the same way. The two products differ in the thickness of the glass and the chamber size. Lab-Tek coverglass uses Borosilicate coverglass No. 1 that is 0.13 - 0.16 mm thick and Lab-Tek II coverglass uses Borosilicate coverglass No. 1.5 thath is 0.16 - 0.19 mm thick. Lab-Tek II coverglass chambers hold 10 - 50% more media than Lab-Tek coverglass chambers, depending on the format. Studies have shown that Lab-Tek II chambered coverglass works well with fastidious cells such as neuronal, as well as poorly adherent cell lines.

Qunicy Lab Digital Forced Air Incubator, Manual / Product Insert

  • Version: JAN 2017

I have a 37 degrees C tissue culture incubator in the lab. Can I use this incubator for the hybridization steps in the PrimeFlow RNA Assay protocol? Product FAQ

Answer

The hybridization temperature is a critical parameter of this protocol necessary to obtain positive results. The incubator to be used must be validated before use with the ViewRNA Temperature Validation Kit (Cat. No. QV0523), following the protocol in the FlowRNA user manual. Temperatures deviated outside of this range will lead to less-than-optimal hybridization.

Can I use Lab Armor Beads for an ice bath? Product FAQ

Answer

There are number of different ways to use Lab Armor Beads. Many customers place containers of beads in their refrigerators, incubators, and ovens. When creating an ice bath, one goal is to keep the beads dry. It is a good idea to separate the beads from the ice packs, which accumulate condensation. It is important to keep the beads from soaking in water for extended periods of time. Besides attracting contamination, excessive water contact will tarnish the surface of the beads and reduce the fluidity of the bath. Also, as an alternative to ice packs, dry ice can be used to make a colder bath (<0 degrees C).

Why does the Insect cell line manual state: "Cells should be maintained at 27 degrees C in a non-humidified environment." Product FAQ

Answer

Insect cells do not require CO2 or high humidity to grow, they can grow in a lab drawer at room temperature. We recommend this so people don't waste CO2 and other resources necessary for maintaining a tissue culture incubator. It should be noted, however, that the cells will grow in a humidified incubator.

PT100 External Sensors or Ovens and High-Temperature Incubators Product Literature

After I added the chromogen reagent to the plate, I incubated the ELISA as suggested in the manual, but the A450 of the highest standard was higher than what my plate reader can read. What should I do? Product FAQ

Answer

Our customers use a wide variety of plate readers. Some of these can't read absorbances higher than 2 AUFS (Absorbance Units Full Scale), while others can't go beyond 3 AUFS, for example. If you read your ELISA plates after 30 minutes of incubation at room temperature and 1 or 2 A450 values are off-scale, you can shorten the incubation time. For example, some customers find that 20 minutes is the ideal incubation time because the ambient temperature in their lab is higher than approximately 2 degrees F (22 degrees C). In this case, higher temperatures increase the rate of the HRP-driven ELISA. Conversely, if the A450 values you get are not high enough, you can increase the incubation time accordingly.
