I am currently a technical representative for Santa Cruz Biotechnology, Inc where I communicate with researchers coordinating chemical, immunoglobulin, & RNAi experiments with SCBT reagents and labware.
Research time & bench labor is a valuable effort. Having confidence in reagent quality & all elements of procedures is essential to success in molecular/cell biology. I improve the frequency of successful experimental results for my clients through 2-way communication; the means to obtain, test, provide feedback, and receive follow-up support brings success.
Several nuances and variables in molecular/cell protocols determine how a result turns out; apparent & straight-forward procedures (ie immuno (western) blotting) contain an extraordinary amount of important steps. Below are a collection of links to resources for research antibody and RNAi studies, that will improve awareness & success for bench scientists.

- 1995,1996: Canoe Guide/Interpreter Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base, Ely MN: Groups are outfitted at the Base to travel by canoe through canoe country, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), Ontario's Quetico Provincial Park, and points beyond. The BWCAW and Quetico together form a roadless area of about a million acres with deep glacial lakes and densely forested cover.
