GANA TEL (purified telomere)

Under R&D


GANA TEL is purified telomere sequence

Composed of repeated TTAGGG sequence

Telomere are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect our chromosomes, like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces. Without the coating, shoelaces become frayed until they can no longer do their job, just as without telomeres, DNA strands become damaged and our cells can't do their job.

each time a cell divides, the telomere get shorter. When they get too short, the cell can no longer divide; it becomes inactive or "senescent" or it dies. This shortening process is associated with aging, cancer, and a higher risk of death. So telomere also have been compared with a bomb fuse.

DNA sequencer

DNA sequencer is a scientific instrument used to automate the DNA sequencing process. Given a sample of DNA, a DNA sequencer is used to determine the order of the four bases: G (guanine), C (cytosine), A (adenine) and T (thymine). This is then reported as a text string, called a read. Some DNA sequencers can be also considered optical instruments as they analyze light signals originating from fluorochromes attached to nucleotides.

Oligonucleotide synthesizer

Oligonucleotide synthesis is the chemical synthesis of relatively short fragments of nucleic acids with defined chemical structure (sequence). The technique is extremely useful in current laboratory practice because it provides a rapid and inexpensive access to custom-made oligonucleotides of the desired sequence. Whereas enzymes synthesize DNA and RNA only in a 5' to 3' direction, chemical oligonucleotide synthesis does not have this limitation, although it is, most often, carried out in the opposite, 3' to 5' direction. Currently, the process is implemented as solid-phase synthesis using phosphoramidite method and phosphoramidite building blocks derived from protected 2'-deoxynucleosides (dAdCdG, and T), ribonucleosides (ACG, and U), or chemically modified nucleosides, e.g. LNA or BNA.
Real time PCR

real-time polymerase chain reaction (Real-Time PCR), also known as quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), is a laboratory technique of molecular biology based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). It monitors the amplification of a targeted DNA molecule during the PCR, i.e. in real-time, and not at its end, as in conventional PCR. Real-time PCR can be used quantitatively (quantitative real-time PCR), and semi-quantitatively, i.e. above/below a certain amount of DNA molecules (semi quantitative real-time PCR).

DNA analyzer

The Qsep100 automated DNA analyzer is a fluorescence DNA-CE system based on micro-capillary electrophoresis technology that provides post PCR separation and detection of DNA Fragments. The system is comprised of the Detection Engine, Analysis Engine, the Sample Loader, and the Disposable Pen-Shaped Gel-Cartridge / Chemistry Kits. The pen-shaped gel-electrophoresis cartridge can do 200 tests at 2-7 minutes per sample. Novel reagent packaging and intuitive software provides ease of operation, automated tracking of consumables and overall management of the genotyping system.
Microvolume spectrophotometer


High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC; formerly referred to as high-pressure liquid chromatography) is a technique in analytical chemistry used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture. It relies on pumps to pass a pressurized liquid solvent containing the sample mixture through a column filled with a solid adsorbent material. Each component in the sample interacts slightly differently with the adsorbent material, causing different flow rates for the different components and leading to the separation of the components as they flow out of the column.

Qubit™ 4 Fluorometer

The Invitrogen Qubit 4 Fluorometer is the next generation of the popular benchtop fluorometer
designed to accurately measure DNA, RNA, and protein quantity.
The new Qubit 4 also easily measures RNA integrity and quality.
The easy-to-use touch screen menus make it easy to select and run the assays you need,
with results displayed in just a few seconds.

Fast protein liquid chromatography (FPLC), is a form of liquid chromatography that is often used to analyze or purify mixtures of proteins. As in other forms of chromatography, separation is possible because the different components of a mixture have different affinities for two materials, a moving fluid (the "mobile phase") and a porous solid (the stationary phase). In FPLC the mobile phase is an aqueous solution, or "buffer". The buffer flow rate is controlled by a positive-displacement pump and is normally kept constant, while the composition of the buffer can be varied by drawing fluids in different proportions from two or more external reservoirs. The stationary phase is a resin composed of beads, usually of cross-linked agarose, packed into a cylindrical glass or plastic column. FPLC resins are available in a wide range of bead sizes and surface ligands depending on the application.
