Lab Manager’s conference

Whilst Novachem has been around for over 35 years, many labs still are not aware of the range of products which we provide accross a number of scientific areas.  We hope that through this sponsorship people will get to know a little more about Novachem.

PeptiQuant™ interest heats up

Since the introduction of the new protein quantitation kits from MRM / CIL were launched earlier this year, there has been substantial new interest in the kits from both research institutions and commercial entities.
PeptiQuant™ offers researchers to dispense with the old Western Blot analysis technique and use Mass Spectrometry to increase throughput, accuracy and decrease cost per sample.
