AbD Serotec and Thermo Fisher Scientific Sign Technology Agreement

  • AbD Serotec and Thermo Fisher Scientific signed an agreement covering the use of Thermo Scientific DyLight Dyes in combination with AbD Serotec's research antibodies to prepare a series of fluorescent reagents.

    DyLight Dyes are water-soluble and provide high fluorescence intensity in many applications, while maintaining photostability across a broad range of pH values. DyLight Dyes are available over a range of spectra and match the output wavelengths of common fluorescence instrumentation.

    The resulting products will be available through the AbD Serotec sales catalogue.

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