What's new

Learn why Takara Bio was awarded "Best Customer Service" for September 2019.


The SMARTer Stranded Total RNA-Seq Kit v2 - Pico Input Mammalian provides a robust new method for RNA-seq studies from low-input biofluid samples.


Learn how Dr. Holger Heyn used our SMART-Seq Single Cell Kit to break performance barriers in scRNA-seq.


Takara Bio Inc. has launched the world's first commercially available small intestinal epithelial cells derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells, jointly developed when Takara Bio received a technology transfer from a differentiation induction method to derive these cells from hiPSCs.


Research spotlight

Single-cell transcriptomics has provided a powerful new way to identify and characterize the various cell types that comprise complex tissues and organs. In this video, Dr. Bosiljka Tasic (Allen Institute for Brain Science) discusses a method she and her team developed to investigate the most complex organ of all: the mammalian brain.

Constant genetic variation is the norm for influenza, making vaccine research challenging. Instead of designing primers for each of the eight influenza RNA segments, a clever team of researchers identified a single primer pair, then relied on In-Fusion Cloning for accurate, fast, and standardized subcloning. Learning how to cut the time from outbreak to vaccine: That's Good Science!
