The Waiting Game: A Search for a Streamlined IHC Protocol

Picture this: a chemist walks into a lab and asks his colleagues how to transition some immunohistochemistry (IHC)-stained slides in a buffer solution to coverslip with a non-aqueous mounting media. From his perspective, it’s a simple problem, and it should have a similarly simple solution. Does it? Read this blog article to find out.

An Introduction to Bioconjugation: Answering Your Questions

Bioconjugation offers a way to chemically link two molecules to form a single hybrid, where at least one of the molecules in the partnership is a biomolecule. The resulting product retains the activity of each component, yet also gains novel functionality that is not possible with either molecule alone. In a recent webinar, Dr. Craig Pow, Director of Technical Services at Vector Laboratories provided an introduction to bioconjugation and its applications, as well as key factors to success.
