COMET ASSAY and CELL ARRAY for genotoxicity testing - non-animal alternative for REACH



TATAA Biocenter (founded in 2001) is today the leading commercial research and service provider of real-time PCR applications in Europe. TATAA pioneered the field of gene expression profiling of individual cells by real-time PCR, revealing very high heterogeneity among cells in seemingly homogeneous populations. TATAA has a fully equipped laboratory dedicated to real-time PCR with five different Q-PCR platforms as well as pipetting station for high throughput studies. TATAA Biocenter is developing proprietary dyes and also probes that become intensively fluorescent upon binding nucleic acids. These dyes have been tested in both real-time PCR and comet assays with encouraging results. TATAA Biocenter arranges workshops and training courses in real-time PCR throughout Europe.
