Scientists know how critical it is to reduce or eliminate unwanted variables before running experiments. That’s why professionals at major research institutions and universities prefer Empirical Bioscience reagents.
Empirical Bioscience provides value that goes well beyond that of a provider of reagents known for their purity and robust activity. Experts at Empirical Bioscience with deep experience in PCR provide invaluable advice on the best reagent tools to use and know how in formulating master mixes that reduce steps for experimenters and increase resolution in gels to produce publication quality images.
Empirical Bioscience takes the guesswork out of whether reagents used for experiments contain rogue DNA or nuclease that can greatly reduce a shelf life of its products. By rigorously enforcing lot-to-lot consistency, Empirical Bioscience provides superior reagents that greatly diminish the chances that experiments will yield false negatives or false positives due to contamination.
Customers say that the robust activity of Empirical Bioscience reagents can yield results they didn’t see using competitors’ reagents or can make their research budgets go further because they were able to achieve the same results with less reagents.
Empirical Bioscience has a wide-ranging catalog of PCR reagents for all life forms, and it welcomes opportunities to devise new master mixes that speed experiments and conserve resources.
One university researcher switched to using a custom Empirical Bioscience master mix for his research in a cure for Alzheimer’s disease after he lost time and money trying to mix his own Taq recipe with the help of student research assistants who inadvertently introduced contaminants or mixed the wrong concentrations of components.
With the single-minded purpose to be the preeminent provider of PCR reagents, Empirical Bioscience makes it its business to provide only the purest master mixes that have been assayed for the right concentrations of components and tested for rogue DNA and nuclease.
Empirical Bioscience customers nationwide are using its reagents to perform PCR research that can involve mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish, insects and bacteria. For instance, one researcher is using Empirical Bioscience Taq to detect the presence of environmental Asian carp DNA in the waters of the Great Lakes as a way of tracking the northward migration of the silver and bighead carp before the fish are physically caught.
With the sometimes enormous economic or social implications of their research, science professionals need to have confidence that the reagents they use won’t be the source of false positives or false negatives. Empirical Bioscience can provide that peace of mind.
Scientists began to apply the genomic tools used to develop new drugs and medical therapies to the plant kingdom in the mid 1990s, fueling explosive growth in the use of advanced PCR techniques to decipher plant genomes. Empirical Bioscience products are being used today in research as varied as discovering how plants react to environmental signals and how invasive species sometimes alter the environment around them to improve chances of survival.
To supply this burgeoning field of molecular research with the right tools, Empirical Bioscience has developed what it believes to be the most effective G-C enhancer on the market today for research of G-C rich targets and a customized version that can multiplex to save experiment steps. Due to their extensive experience in developing reagents for challenging PCR, Empirical Bioscience experts have been able to develop standard and customized multiplex products to save technicians time as they conduct their experiments.
