Date added: 22/09/2015 Busy, Busy, Busy - Web Scientific/Thistle Scientific Part Sponsors x3 Exhibitions On One Day

In our ongoing effort to help raise customer awareness of our latest products, Web Scientific/Thistle Scientfiic will be part sponsoring three separate exhibitions at different locations throughout the UK on 22nd-24th Sept:

1) Mini Exhibition at the Babraham Research Campus, Cambridge, 24th Sept.
Mini exhibitions are a weekly event at Babraham held in either the Meditrina or Bennet buildings and organised for the 60 tennent companies in the Bioincubator unit as well as academic researchers at the institute.

2) 'Promoting green procurement' supplier's exhibition, The Great Hall, Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol, 24th Sept.
Organised by the Procurement Department at the University in an effort to promote their existing and preferred suppliers, this
event should provide an excellent opportunity for participating suppliers and staff to exchange ideas and discuss new developments and existing arrangements for supply in an informal atmosphere.

The theme of this event is the promotion of 'green procurement' in which suppliers are expected to promote and exhibit sustainable products and services where possible.

3) Trade show at the South Kensington Campus of Imperial College London, 22nd-24th Sept. 
As a satellite meeting to The 9th Young Investigator’s Meeting on Smooth Muscle in Airways and Vascular Disease taking place in the Sir Alexander Fleming (SAF) Building at Imperial College the supplier trade show will allow participating companies the opportunity to present new and emerging technologies/products to researchers in the Departments of Life Sciences, Department of Surgery and Cancer, and the National Heart and Lung Institute.

Date added: 18/08/2015 Parent Company, Thistle Scientific, Sponsors Biochemical Societies' 77th Harden Conference

The Biochemical Societies' 77th Harden Conference - Two Component Signalling in Bacteria: Integrating Approaches and Science, to be held on 24th-27th August, 2015 at Chesford Grange Hotel, Warwickshire will be sponsored by Web Scientific's parent company, Thistle Scientific.

Two Component Signalling is now a diverse subject area crossing structural, molecular, cellular and systems biology. Each of these strands has developed to a mature status individually; as such there is now a real need for these diverse communities to come together in order to understand two component signalling from an integrated perspective. Advances in techniques for structural biology, cellular imaging, genetic regulation, metabolomics and transcriptomic data acquisition in particular has been revolutionised over the past five years with high throughput methodology approaches. What is now required is an understanding of the basic biology from an integrated, systems perspective.

Unique to the Biochemical Society, Harden Conferences are residential research conferences covering a specialist topic. The conferences bring together scientists from various backgrounds with a common interest in - but varying approaches to - the topic of the conference.

Date added: 17/08/2015 HiLyte Fluorâ„¢ Dyes Now Available For Peptide And Protein Labelling

In a new collaboration with Eurogentec S.A, Belgium, Thistle Scientific/Web Scientific has signed an agreement to be able to distribute Hilyte™ Fluor dyes for peptide and protein labelling in the UK market. HiLyte™ Fluor dyes are a series of excellent fluorescent labelling dyes with fluorescence emissions that span the full visible and near infrared spectrum. The hydrophilic property of most of the HiLyte™ Fluor dyes makes conjugations to protein easier, minimizing the use of organic solvents. The resulting conjugates are relatively resistant to aggregation and precipitation during storage. HiLyte™ Fluor dyes also have better labelling performance than the classic fluorescent labelling dyes such as FITC and rhodamines. These dyes are now available in various reactive forms through Web Scientific.

Date added: 05/08/2015 Drop-sequencing developed by Harvard Medical School relies on products from V&P Scientific

Drop-sequencing (Drop-seq) is a technology developed by the McCarroll lab, Harvard Medical School, Dept of Genetics, to allow biologists to analyze genome-wide gene expression in thousands of individual cells in a single experiment. This work, including the methodology and apparatus used is described in Macosko et al., Cell, 2015.

The Drop-seq page on the McCaroll lab website provides interested users with resources to implement Drop-seq in their own labs, by providing details of the latest Drop-seq protocol, including information relating to the unique mixing technology used which comes from V&P Scientific Inc.

By acting as European distributor for V&P Scientific, Web Scientific can supply all of the necessary components to allow a successful Drop-seq setup in your lab.

Date added: 04/08/2015 Upcoming Exhibitions

Web Scientific in conjunction with parent company, Thistle Scientific, will be taking part in a number of exhibitions between now and the end of the year. Please visit our news section and Facebook page for further updates.

Date added: 04/08/2015 Our Extended Special Offers

Due to the popularity of many of our July special offers we have decided to extend these until the end of August or until the end of the year. Please visit our 'Special Offer' section for further details.

Date added: 22/06/2015 Thistle Scientific/Web Scientific To Exhibit At The Kennedy Institute, University Of Oxford, 13th July, 2015

In the latest of our more focused events, Thistle Scientific/Web Scientific is to exhibit at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, University of Oxford on 13th July, 2015. The Kennedy Institute houses basic and clinician scientists working in the areas of microbiome, immunology, inflammation and tissue biology and repair. A multidisciplinary approach is used, which looks at basic biology, through models of disease to the development and testing of novel therapies in the clinic. There are strong links with clinical centres focussing on joint and bone diseases, inflammatory bowel disease and cancer. Coinciding with this exhibition date will be a presentation from guest speaker, Dr. Demitrios Davalos (http://gladstoneinstitutes.org/scientist/davalos) from the The Gladstone Institute, UCSF.

Date added: 22/06/2015 Thistle Scientific/Web Scientific To Exhibit At Rowett Institute, Aberdeen, Wednesday 24th June
