Description of the Organisations and PI

Kaivogen Oy is a producer of high quality laboratory reagents. Kaivogen offers streptavidin-coated microtitration plates with a range of properties in several 96-well formats giving the customer the option to select the best alternative for the specific application. In addition to streptavidin plates, Kaivogen also offers anti-mouse IgG coated plates as a catalogue item. If the customer's assay demands a special surface for optimal performance, Kaivogen also runs a custom coating service. For the detection of biomolecules, Kaivogen provides several lanthanide chelates with different metal ions, activation chemistries and fluorescence properties. If the customer is interested in having a biomolecule coupled with a label, Kaivogen also provides a labelling service for small molecules requiring HPLC-purification. In addition, Kaivogen offers controlled production facilities for the preparation of buffers and other laboratory liquids.

Dr. Johanna Pyylampi carried out her PhD studies at the University of Turku Department of Biotechnology during the years 2008-2013.
