Worm Pick Handle
Worm pick Handle holding optional 90% Platinum 10% Iridium pick

As far as we know, this technology was developed in Paul Sternberg's lab at CalTech, and we're grateful to have learned about it from Cheryl Van Buskirk! Though it can be fun to play with fire and glass to make a single-use C. elegans pick from a melted Pasteur pipette, the resulting pick is not very practical or durable.

Ours is a super-strong, lightweight aluminum rod with a 4-jaw chuck at the end to grab and center your platinum wire pick. This means the platinum wire only needs to be a few millimeters longer than pick-length, so it's less wasteful than the melted glass version... PLUS you can turn the little piece of wire around and make a nice new worm spatula from the other end as well! Since you'll be using it for many hours (years?!), we've added a comfortable grip area where you can write your name!

Believe it or not, another company sells a worm pick for 10x our price (yes, $60!) and then you have to buy their wasteful magnetically-mounted wire to fit it. We felt that we had to come to the rescue with an inexpensive pick that is by and for real worm labs and make it available for your convenience.

Design Oligo-Nucleotide Probes in about 1 minute!

Oligo-Designer 1.0 maximizes your chances of cloning genes by protein sequence homology by helping you choose probes with the lowest degeneracy. It takes your protein sequence (which you can type in, or cut and paste from anywhere) and Reverse-Translates it for you. The key is in the graphic form of the output: the degenerate nucleotide code "hangs down" from the amino-acid sequence. This makes finding the least ambiguous sequences quick and easy - just look for indentations (contiguous areas where the least is hanging down) and you have your probe sequences, ready to synthesize and clone your gene!!! It's an almost instantaneous process.

Our little Hand-held UV Lamp Is Big on Illumination

Not a new concept, but an AMAZING price! These hand-held UV lights illuminate ethidium bromide stained DNA superbly (as good or better than the common models costing over 5 times as much).
  • Bright long-wavelength UV keeps DNA damage to a minimum
  • Light-weight design is easy to hold

FAQ's

Q: Does the UV-1 lamp work on cyber safe or glow safe dyes? What color light do they emit?
A: Our UV-1 emits mostly light in the UVA range of 300-400 nm. The dyes you mentioned above work best when excited with blue light that is 430-490 nm, so UV-1 is probably not a good choice. The UV excites some blue fluorescence from the agar, which then excites the dye. You can try one out if you would like, but we have not tested it for cyber green.
