The CloningBench mobile app is designed to provide you with useful and essential tools to help guide your cloning experiments. The app is also available for iPad.

CloningBench features:

The Invitrogen Anza™ restriction enzymes cloning system: the new and innovative cloning method that offers one buffer and one digestion protocol for all DNA types. Anza™ restriction enzymes offer complete digestion in 15 minutes and the option of overnight digestion with no star activity. Use the CloningBench app to easily find the right enzyme with a single search by name, sequence or Anza™ enzyme number and use the datasheets for reference

Anza™ modifying enzymes: Find enzymes for ligation, DNA repair, phosphorylation etc. that are all compatible in the single, proprietary Anza™ buffer

Competent Cell Selection Guide - Quickly find the right competent cell for your cloning application and order easily. Search for chemically competent or electrocompetent cells, desired transformation efficiency, specialized application or packaging format that suits your needs.

Nucleic acid concentration calculator
Calculate the concentration of Nucleic Acids according to their optical density.

PCR MasterMix Calculator
Calculate quantities of components for your PCR MasterMix

Vector to Insert Molar Ratios Calculator
Calculate the quantity of insert required for a 1:1 molar ratio

Molar Quantities Calculator
Convert molar concentration into molar quantities and vice versa.

Bacterial Growth Timer
Determine the time it takes for a bacterial culture to reach a desired optical density.

Gene Size Estimator
Estimate the size of a gene from a known protein size and vice versa.

Universal Buffer Restriction Enzyme Finder – This tool lets you find restriction enzymes that use the previous universal buffer system from Invitrogen. Search by cut-site, name or buffer type, obtain technical data that you can share easily with others and order directly from your mobile device

Double Digest Finder - Find the correct buffer and concentration when digesting DNA with two restriction enzymes that use the previous universal buffer system

Molecular Probes Cell Imaging Guide with Protocols
 This mobile app is designed to help you find fluorescent dyes, reagents and protocols for cell biology related fluorescence microscopy applications. 
 Molecular Probes mobile app is great for: 
• Selecting science protocols for labeling organelles and cellular structures such as: Golgi, mitochondria, nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, plasma membrane, actin, tubulin, peroxisomes, autophagasomes, endosomes and lysosomes without Spectraviewer. 
• Finding Alexa Fluor® labeled mouse, goat and rabbit secondary antibodies for immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry applications on Zeiss, Leica, Olympus and Nikon microscope systems. 
• Choosing calcium ion indicators, cell health assays, fluorophores and pH dyes for neuroscience, neurobiology and cancer research. 
• Discovering which Invitrogen, Gibco or Ambion cell health, cell culture, or reactive dye kits are best for benchtop cytometry, tissue staining, or biotin streptavidin conjugation for microscopic labeling and detection. 
• Remote access to troubleshoot issues of: photobleaching, background fluorescence, and autofluorescence using signal enhancers, signal amplification, phalloidin conjugates, and click chemistry.


Buffers is a scientific tool for designing buffer solutions for pH control. Buffers is useful both as a handy reference of available buffering agents and as an accurate, portable buffer calculator for chemical, biochemical and biological research.

With Buffers you can:
- Select from 42 commonly used buffering agents
- Generate accurate recipes covering broad pH, concentration and temperature ranges
- Access detailed information about each available buffer system
- E-mail, text, copy or print recipes

To use Buffers, just choose a buffering agent and target pH along with the desired solution volume, temperature and buffer concentration. The recipe is calculated with the push of a button. Buffers uses a sophisticated algorithm that is more versatile and potentially more accurate than simple calculations based on the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation.

An information page for each buffering agent lists the pKa, appropriate pH range, and temperature dependence, along with molecular weights and CAS numbers for the acid and base forms and other pertinent information.

Use your touch screen to rotate and zoom around 29 interactive structures. Discover how each brain region functions, what happens when it is injured, and how it is involved in mental illness. Each detailed structure comes with information on functions, disorders, brain damage, case studies, and links to modern research.
