    BioChain has developed a series of ELISA assays for the detection of infectious diseases, such as hepatitis, (HCV, HEV), HIV, TORCH, TB, etc. Our kits are for research use only in the United States while we have obtained regulatory approval for clinical use in other countries, such as China. These ELISA kits are enzyme immunoassays for the detection of various antigen or antibody in human serum or plasma. Recombinant, purified antigen, or antibody is coated on the multiple wells. When the serum sample and HRP conjugated second antibody are added to the coated wells and the target antibody or antigen is present in the sample, a HRP conjugated complex will form. This enzyme reaction produces a color change, and the intensity of the absorbance at defined wavelength indicates the presence or absence of the antigen or antibody in the sample. The test is specific, sensitive, reproducible and easy to operate.

    Introduction to CancerSeq™ Paraffin Tissue Section and Block

    BioChain’s CancerSeq formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissues are tumor tissues that have been prescreened extensively for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), insertions & deletions (indels), and copy number variations (CNVs).  Targeted Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), using cancer gene panels, was performed to identify mutations and mutational hotspots.  These tissues are ideal for verification, genotyping, or identification of new mutational hotspots.

    The advantage of using real tumor tissues versus genetically engineered tumor cell lines, is that the tissues are far more representative of real clinical disease.   Cancer cell lines or genetically altered cell lines have been used widely for in vitro tumor models, but these possess only a small proportion of the genetic variances seen in tumor tissues.  Actual tumors generally carry multiple mutations instead of just one or two.  Numerous studies have  pointed out the striking genetic differences between cell lines and tumor samples by comparing microarrays, copy number changes, mutations, and mRNA expression profiles 1-5.

    Briefly, genomic DNA was extracted from the FFPE tissues and validated by targeted NGS with either Illumina’s TruSeq Amplicon - Cancer Panel (TSACP) or ArcherDX’s VariantPlex Solid Tumor Panel which include 48 or 67 cancer-related genes. Our prescreened tissues come with detailed information regarding donor and cancer type, as well as NGS information such as chromosomal position, variant type (SNP or indel), alternate allele variations, quality score, depth of coverage, allele type, transcript ID and more.  We offer the prescreened tissue as mounted sections or curls.  Please inquire for other options such, as whole block or extracted nucleic acids.

    The currently available massive parallel sequencing is revolutionizing the researches in genomics, life science, and medical applications. Next-generation sequencing technologies include a number of methods that are grouped broadly as template preparation, sequencing and imaging, and data analysis. The unique combination of specific protocols distinguishes one technology from another and determines the type of data produced from each platform. However, the basic sample process requirements, so called library construction, are shared among all of the technology platforms. BioChain offers microRNA and mRNA sample library construction kits to allow fast and cost-effective NGS sequencing. Our kits have the following advantages: (1) streamlined workflow process; (2) reduced cost of reagents; (3) easy to use, all-in-one kit. With these features, our kit enhances productivity by shortening the time required for library preparation and decreases the potential human error rate since we reduced the hands-on time for sample preparation.
