“We are excited to participate in this significant industry event and bolster our commitment to our customers with new and transformational innovations that will help them to advance the prevention, detection and treatment of disease,” said Kevin Hrusovsky, president, Life Sciences and Technology, PerkinElmer. “The study of epigenetics and the exciting innovations in next generation sequencing are proving to be powerful tools for better understanding cancer and other debilitating diseases so that we are better equipped to combat them. We believe our transformative assays and instrumentation will help enable our customers to bring better, more effective medicines to market.”

PerkinElmer products on display at SLAS 2013 include:

  • An expanded Epigenetic Biochemical Toolbox with more than 40 validated enzymatic assays for the detection of post-translational modifications of histones H3, H4 and p53. The PerkinElmer assays cover all the major writer and eraser enzyme families and can be used across a range of substrates, from peptides to histones to full nucleosomes. The toolbox complements the novel AlphaLISA® Epigenetic Cellular Detection Kits for cell-based detection of epigenetic modifications. Together, these products allow interrogation of compounds in more biologically relevant formats and improve efficiency in the identification of drug candidates targeting epigenetic enzymes related to key disease states.

    PerkinElmer’s epigenetic portfolio provides researchers access to fully validated reagents and assay development services that offer valuable time savings in the race to discover novel drug candidates. These highly specific reagents along with PerkinElmer’s knowledgeable support for the development of epigenetic assays help researchers identify and characterize their lead compounds more quickly and efficiently.
  • The PerkinElmer JANUS® NGS Express™ liquid handling workstation automates key procedures involved in the sample preparation workflow for benchtop next-generation DNA sequencing platforms. Validated methods include fragment library preparation, amplicon sequencing, normalization and complex sample pooling for multiplexed sequencing experiments. The JANUS NGS Express enables better sample-to-sample consistency and decreased hands-on time with the capability of efficient sample preparation of up to 24 libraries for higher quality library prep with increased yields and fewer errors.
  • The PerkinElmer Sciclone® NGSx Workstation™ platform for high-throughput next generation sequencing workflows helps researchers accelerate the preparation of DNA samples for sequencing with minimal user intervention. The Sciclone NGSx, allows for full walk-away library prep for up to 96 samples per run with standardized protocols available for exome capture, RNA-Seq and fragment library prep using kits from multiple suppliers. Automated sample prep with the Sciclone NGSx helps provide consistency, repeatability and traceability, eliminate cross-contamination and has the flexibility for future application development enabling consistency, robustness and the ability to utilize the chemistry of your choice.
  • PerkinElmer offers a full sequencing portfolio dedicated to helping meet scientific challenges including sample isolation, fragment and sizing, library generation, sample quantification, sequencing and analysis.

The above products are for research use only and not for use in diagnostic procedures.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward. He also shared the story of how Skytap used Docker to get out of the business of managing infrastructure, and into the business of delivering innovation and business value. Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
