Syngene Gbox Mini Product

Image analysis

Syngene has introduced a new Epi UV HI-LED lighting option for its popular G:BOX Chemi and G:BOX mini multi-application gel and blot imaging systems. These environmentally friendly lights allow faster workflow and more accurate results when imaging a diverse range of fluorescently 
labelled proteins on gels and blots. With an excitation wavelength of 365nm, the Epi UV HI-LED lights transform G:BOX Chemi and G:BOX mini systems into higher-performance imagers capable of detecting SYPRO Ruby labelled proteins, colonies and proteins labelled with wtGFP, as well as fluorescent proteins on TLC plates.


Rapid detection

Mast Group Ltd has launched the Mast Carba Pace for rapid carbapenemase detection in Pseudomonas, Acinetobacter and Enterobacterales.

It has developed a colorimetric test which rapidly detects carbapenemase producing Pseudomonas spp, Acinetobacter spp and Enterobacterales, using a novel chromogenic cephalosporin analogue.

The test involves five simple steps and delivers results in less than 10 minutes.



BioCote has invested over £600,000 in larger headquarters and a new laboratory, and has increased staff numbers.

The move will enable the company to meet rising demand for its antimicrobial additives, which are integrated into products to make them easier to keep hygienically clean and less likely to cause cross-contamination.

BioCote has achieved a 15% increase in revenue over the last year, with customer numbers on the rise.
