Date added: 09/03/2015 Web/Thistle Scientific To Co-Sponsor Genes And Cancer 31st Annual Meeting, 2015

Thistle Scientific/Web Scientific are proud to be co-sponsoring and exhibiting at this up-coming annual event to be held at the Robinson College, University of Cambridge, 13th-15th April, 2015.

‘Genes and Cancer’ is a broad-based cancer research meeting focusing on basic and translational cancer research. The meeting is one of the UK and Europe’s best cancer research meetings and is now in its 31st year. This year 4 main research themes have been chosen. They are: ‘Tumour Cell Growth and Survival’, ‘Engagement of Immune Cells’, ‘Cancer as a Systemic Disease’, and ‘Models and Therapy’. In addition to these 4 sessions there is a Keynote lecture and 10 short talks will be chosen from submitted abstracts with particular focus being given to young investigators. A poster session also forms part of the programme which runs concurrently with a trade exhibition in which Thistle/Web Scientific will exhibit our latest products. The main aim of the meeting is to bring together young scientists with some of the world’s leaders in cancer research in an informal environment that maximizes interaction between speakers and delegates. It is hoped that the format and atmosphere at the conference will serve as an inspiration to those at the early stages of their scientific careers.

Date added: 06/03/2015 Launch Of Our Latest Product Coincides With A Fundraiser For Breast Cancer Research

The latest edition to our Nichiryo pipette range, the Nichipet Premium LT, is now available. Being PINK in colour, we have naturally seen a way to coincide the marketing and sale of this pipette with an opportunity to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research, for which 'pink' is now well known as the promotional colour. So, for every Nichipet Premium LT that we sell before the end of July, 2015, we will donate £5 to this valuable life-saving charity. We are also promoting our usual Nichipet introductory offer of 'Buy One Get One FREE'. See following link for further details: http://webscientific.co.uk/images/Pretty%20In%20Pink%20Promo.pdf.

With the latest design features, this model shows true innovation in comfort and ergonomic design ('Fatigue Free') as well as the usual attention to durability and strength. Six models are available covering a volume range from 0.1 - 1000μL. Suitable for the majority of laboratory applications this pipette is a must have for those who may be susceptible to repetitive strain injury. It is also UV resistant and fully autoclavable up to 121C, making it easy to sterilise and comes with a 5yr warranty.
