Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 9, 2005--Do-Coop Technologies
Ltd., a privately held corporation based in Israel,
announced today the commercial availability of its
newest product, Neowater(TM) - Ligation Enhancer,
based on its proprietary Neowater(TM) technology.
Do-Coop Technologies manufactures a stable system
of largely hydrated nano-particles (Neowater(TM))
for the Life Sciences. Among the recently introduced
products we highlight Neowater(TM) - PCR Enhancer
and Neowater(TM) - Transfection Enhancer. Do-Coop's
family of products, all based on Do-Coop's proprietary
Neowater(TM) technology, dramatically enhances existing
reagents, applications and processes to help segments
of the Life Sciences industry to achieve the results
they expect and need. Today.
consist of a stable system of largely hydrated nano-particles
that lead to several important benefits for research,
diagnostics and bio-pharma applications. The hydrated
nano-particles, like non-ionic detergent derived micelles,
reduce the entropy of aqueous solutions and mimic
intracellular water. In addition, by design, they
exhibit hydrophobic properties.
The non-ionic Neowater(TM)
works by coating components at their molecular level,
thus exposing, increasing and/or enhancing those specific
surfaces which are required for a specific reaction
but are normally not available to interact (e.g. GC-rich
DNA). Therefore, very small volumes of Neowater(TM),
and reduced component's concentrations or amounts,
are needed for a reaction when using Neowater(TM).
Neowater(TM) allows for (low-volume) miniaturization
of Life Sciences products, applications and processes.
significantly accelerate and improve the efficiency
of biological reactions.
New Product Introduction: Neowater(TM)
- Ligation Enhancer
Neowater(TM) - Ligation Enhancer
has been especially formulated to enhance DNA-ligation
processes in an incremental, non-disruptive yet highly
effective way. Neowater(TM)- Ligation Enhancer can
dramatically improve DNA-ligation, making ligation
faster, easier and with better yields.
In addition, Neowater(TM) -
Ligation Enhancer allows for the reduction of buffer
concentration (and hence the reduction of the system's
noise) therefore it allows the user to proceed to
DNA-ligation if desired straightforwardly from the
PCR step, skipping the traditional, but now no longer
necessary step of PCR-purification (cleaning) following
the PCR amplification step.
"Using Neowater(TM) -
Ligation Enhancer users can now skip altogether the
DNA Purification (cleaning) step following PCR amplification,
prior to ligation.
"Neowater(TM) - Ligation
Enhancer allows for a significant reduction in the
reaction total volume, while in parallel it results
in a dramatic increase in efficiency, yield, and a
great reduction in overall ligation process time.
In addition to all of these benefits, it also helps
users lower their total reaction costs.
"We are in the process
of introducing a complete product line that dramatically
enhances upstream research and diagnostic processes.
Our future plans include the introduction of novel
downstream products such as protein expression and
purification enhancers, all of which are based on
Neowater(TM) technology," said Eran Gabbai, founder
and CTO of Do-Coop Technologies, and the inventor
Do-Coop Technologies has recently
announced a free samples program to allow end-users
to try the new product and verify the company's claims
by using the provided sample and protocol within their
own ligation processes.
