Current Protocols is a resource of procedures and protocols for the lab. Whether it's Immunology Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Mouse Biology, or Neuroscience, Current protocols provides step by step directions, ingredient lists and even videos for some techniques.
But that's not all. Current Protocols now offers three apps for iOS to increase your productivity in the laboratory: Biological Buffer Calculator, CD Antigens Information Finder, and a DNA/RNA/Protein and General Molecular Weight Calculator. Click the link for more information in iTunes preview.
Biological Buffer Calculator
Chemical/biochemical pocket companion designed by the editors of Current Protocols. Choose from a list of all of the commonly used biological buffer systems, enter your desired volume, pH, and buffer concentration, as well as the concentrations of your stock solutions of the conjugate acid and base, and the calculator will inform you of the exact volumes of these stock solutions to mix in order to obtain the buffer needed.
CD Antigens Information Finder
CD molecules are cell-surface antigens identifiable by their reactions with specific monoclonal antibodies, which represent an important system for identifying and differentiating human cells. The CD Antigen Information Finder was adapted from Current Protocols in Immunology (Beare, et al., 2008. Monoclonal Antibodies to Human Cell Surface Antigens. Curr. Protoc. Immunology. 80:A.4A.1–A.4A.73) and includes data on the molecular weight, family, molecular structure, cellular expression patterns, function, and biomedical usefulness of the molecule. The database is searchable by the official CD designation of the antigen as well as by synonyms and other keywords including associated diseases and tissue/organ names.
