On Friday, 11th February, it’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2022. To celebrate, I’d like to give a big shout-out to people of all genders who champion gender equality in science and inspire the next generations of scientists, thank you!

Happy New Year! It’s five years since Marko and I founded Qkine, the time has flown. Highlights have been the wonderful feedback we’ve had from customers and launching innovative products such as the first true animal-free TGFβ1, tag-free thermostable FGF2-G3, and demonstrating the efficacy of HGF NK1 in hepatocyte differentiation.

the 5th anniversary of Qkine

There has been an impressive drive towards innovation in stem cell protocols this year. As 2021 comes to a close, we reflect on the highlights for stem cell science over the year. It was great to see new culture media, such as B8 and “Beefy-9”, published, developments in cultivated meat science hit the news and iPSC-based therapies edge closer to the clinic. Reproducibility remains the underlying theme, and indeed requirement, for maximising the impact of these wonderful developments and at Qkine we’ll continue to do everything we can to help in 2022.

Revenge of the Organoids – Super Scientist saves the day

By |2021-09-20T20:15:43+00:00September 20th, 2021|#qkinetechtip, organoid news, protein engineering, resources|Comments Off on Revenge of the Organoids – Super Scientist saves the day

Can Super Scientist give you your organoid mojo back? Are your growth factors the reason your experiments fail? Can you use engineered or niche-specific growth factors to improve your organoid culture? Super Scientist flies in with easy fixes and questions to ask yourself - do you need to ditch the conditioned media, play around with growth factor combinations, switch noggin and gremlin, or be bold and explore new engineered proteins.

mouse LIF protein vs ESGRO?

By |2022-02-21T13:55:46+00:00July 12th, 2021|#qkinetechtip, protein science, quality, resources, stem cells|Comments Off on mouse LIF protein vs ESGRO?

There is no fundamental difference between ESGRO and recombinant mouse leukaemia inhibitor factor (mLIF) protein. Both can be used for the successful maintenance of mouse embryonic stem cell (ESC) pluripotency. 10E7 units of ESGRO is equivalent to 100 µg of pure protein. Thank you to Susanne van den Brink (postdoc in Anna Bigas lab, IMIM, Barcelona) and David Turner (University of Liverpool) for sharing their resuspension protocol to prepare ESLIF media.
