Certificado de Análisis

Certificado de origen

  1. Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?

    If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.

  2. How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?

    The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.

  3. Is it possible to adapt Product G3293, Glucose Assay Reagent, for use with a 96 well plate reader?

    In principle, it should be possible to adapt assay procedures using this reagent to 96-well plate readers. Volumes of reagent, water, standard, and unknown should be reduced to fit the capacity of the test wells, and kept in the same proportions as those used with a spectrophotometer. The volume reduction will likely be 1:4 or 1:5. With the shorter "pathlength" of a multiwell plate, the sensitivity of the assay would likely decrease.

  4. Is magnesium required for Product G3293, Glucose Assay Reagent?

    Magnesium, an activator of hexokinase, is included in the assay reagent. There is no need to add a magnesium salt to the reagent before use.

  5. What is the detection limit of Product G3293, Glucose Assay Reagent?

    This reagent should be able to detect glucose down to approximately 0.01 mg/mL using a spectrophotometer with a 1 cm path length.

Carbon reserve use is a major drought response in trees, enabling tree survival in conditions prohibiting photosynthesis. However, regulation of starch metabolism under drought at the whole-tree scale is still poorly understood. To this end, we combined measurements of nonstructural...

Plants link interactions between aboveground and belowground organisms. Herbivore-induced changes in plant chemistry are hypothesized to impact entire food webs by changing the strength of trophic cascades. Yet, few studies have explored how belowground herbivores affect the behaviors of generalist...

A key challenge for ecologists is to predict how single and joint effects of global warming and predation risk translate from the individual level up to ecosystem functions. Recently, stoichiometric theory linked these levels through changes in body stoichiometry, predicting...
