EMD Millipore has launched its CellventoTM CHO platform of cell culture media and companion feed formulations for batch, fed-batch and perfusion applications.
Artemis CCD announces an upgrade in performance and enhanced lens compatibility for the VS range of cameras. The VS design is aimed at Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of integrated imaging systems as well as low light microscopy users.
Along with the burgeoning use of advanced medical imaging tests over the past decade have come rising public health concerns about possible links between low-dose radiation and cancer.
Move over sweet and salty: Researchers say we have a distinct and basic taste for fat, too. But it's nowhere near as delicious as it sounds.
Scientists from the University of Nottingham in England have discovered a fully man-made substrate that could produce billions of human embryonic stem cells and move laboratory-based research to industrial-scale biomedicine. The research, published in the journal Advanced Materials, could lead the way for what the team calls ‘stem cell factories’ – the mass production of human pluripotent stem cells.
Dysfunctional telomeres—molecular caps that keep chromosomes from unraveling like shoelace nubs—may be critical to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), which kills in two to three years.
Technological trends in the market are aimed at reducing the thickness of BAS and providing better delivery systems, more efficient drug-elution characteristics, and faster resorption times.
A human cell’s cytoskeleton – the protein network that supports its shape and function – is made of three components. Scientists know a lot about two of them but they’ve only recently had the technological advances to study the dynamics of the third in detail. In a new pair of studies scientists help explain how this third component – slender, threadlike structures called intermediate filaments – moves and assembles to protect cells.
Scientists say they have sequenced the genome of the brown kiwi for the first time, revealing that the shy, flightless bird likely lost its ability to see colors after it became nocturnal tens of millions of years ago.
QImaging offers the optiMOS Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera for fluorescence microscopy. An alternative to traditional CCD cameras, optiMOS captures fast cellular dynamic events across a larger field of view without compromising sensitivity.
Half the world’s population depends on rice to survive. That human population continues to grow by the billions in the 21st century. But, rice crops are releasing massive amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas. Now, a group of researchers has unveiled a genetically modified super rice that has more starch, yet releases a fraction of the harmful methane.
R&D Magazine has announced the Finalists for the 53rd annual R&D 100 Awards, which honor the 100 most innovative technologies and services of the past year. This year’s Winners will be presented with their honors at the annual black-tie awards dinner on November 13, 2015 at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada.
Saliva may be a new, easily-accessible, avenue for Alzheimer’s detection. A small study, presented at the 2015 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Washington, D.C this week, showed early, but intriguing results with implications for a simple diagnostic tool for Alzheimer’s – which is nothing to spit at.
Scientists have discovered a previously unknown source of ancestry for some native peoples in Brazil, suggesting a new wrinkle in the story of the settlement of the Americas.
In animal models, acupuncture appears to impact the same biologic pathways ramped up by pain and stress, analogous to what drugs do in humans. Researchers say their animal study, published online in Endocrinology, provides the strongest evidence to date on the mechanism of this ancient Chinese therapy in chronic stress.
