Scientists have developed a revolutionary method of identifying cells of the immune system with “molecular fingerprints” which could pave the way for the rapid detection of conditions such as leukemia and lymphoma from a small blood sample.
An ancient lake could hold the key to our understanding of how complex life evolved on Earth,...
L’Oreal is partnering with bioprinting startup Organovo to engineer 3D printed skin tissue to...

Interscience is proud to launch a new range of gravimetric dilutors, the DiluFlow Elite 5kg, DiluFlow Elite 1 kg, DiluFlow Pro & DiluFlow with upgraded accuracy and design.
Body builders have it right: vitamin E does help build strong muscles, and scientists appear to have figured out one important way it does it.
Allergist raises concerns about highly-publicized research findings suggesting that children with asthma are prone to peanut allergy.
It’s no wonder that giant pandas are always chewing and eating, say Chinese researchers: their gut bacteria are not the type for efficiently digesting bamboo. The bamboo-eating giant panda actually harbors a carnivore-like gut microbiota predominated by bacteria such as Escherichia/Shigella and Streptococcus, according to new research.
Scientists have identified proteins that mediate aspects of virus replication in the lifecycle of human papillomavirus (HPV), a finding that may lead to new therapeutic targets for treatment of infections caused by the virus.
The sample prep station was co-developed through collaboration between Distek, Inc. and Two Square Science based in Fall River, MA. The result is a 10 station system which can prepare content uniformity samples up to 90 percent faster than traditional methods.
Even though self-targeting immune cells remain prolific in adults’ bloodstreams, some kind of internal emergency brake seems to prevent them from triggering autoimmune disease — usually.
Researchers have discovered that unique genome sequences allow fish, reptiles, birds and other animals to create a compound that acts as sunscreen.
The Food and Drug Administration is moving to collect more information on antibiotics used in animals that become meat. It's an effort to stem antibiotic-resistant diseases.
A team of researchers has discovered how a commonly administered vaccine protects against acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common type of childhood cancer.
A new study has found that Naltrexone, a drug used to treat alcoholism, may also be a promising treatment for addiction to methamphetamine.
Researchers at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have developed a new technology that turns a smartphone into a DNA-scanning fluorescent microscope. Lead researcher Aydogan Ozcan, Howard Hughes Medical Institute chancellor professor at UCLA, sat down with Bioscience Technology to talk about this advancement and its implications for resource-poor labs, and for personalized medicine.
Abcodia announced this week it raised $8 million to bring its ovarian cancer screening test called ROCA to market.
Adopting a standard ANSI / SLAS footprint, INTEGRA 384-well reagent reservoirs (100ml) are fully compatible with all liquid handling systems including the company’s VIAFLO 384 handheld multichannel electronic pipette. 384 individual pyramidal indentations in each reagent reservoir allow maximum liquid recovery when using a VIAFLO 384 electronic pipette as well as other platforms.
A team of neuroscientists has identified a part of the brain exclusively devoted to processing speech. Its findings point to the superior temporal sulcus (STS), located in the temporal lobe, and help settle a long-standing debate about role-specific neurological functions.
