Expanding on our expertise in non-radioisotopic detection methods, we have developed new and improved ways of labeling nucleic acid probes. PHOTOPROBE®Biotin is used to randomly label any nucleic acid with biotin. The FastTag®labeling system allows nucleic acid to be easily and economically labeled with any marker. The 3’ EndTag™ and 5’ EndTag™ system provide simple methods to label only the ends of nucleic acid probes.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
