Scientists from the University of Houston and Boston Children’s Hospital presented a new research project they’ve been working on at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA).
The InnoScan Series of microarray scanners from from Arrayit. The 710 and 710AL are the next generation of microarray scanners and offer greater sensitivity and lower background, dynamic auto-focusing, 2-color fluorescence detection, 3 µm scan resolution, 3 minute scan times and complete software.
Scientists have developed a bionic leg that gives patients with above-knee amputations better control over movement than current prosthetics.
With the average cow producing 1000 times more methane than a human, meat production plays a big role in greenhouse gas emissions. But in a world where there’s a growing appetite for meat, how can our food system keep everyone happy while reducing its environmental impact?
As teachers lament seeing toddlers too large to fit in playground swings, a federal program that feeds millions of low-income children may be overhauled for the first time in almost 50 years, aiming to make the meals at day cares healthier and reduce obesity.
New animal research reveals fundamental sex differences in how pain is processed.
A team of researchers has found a way to expand the use and precision of powerful gene-editing tools called CRISPR-Cas9 RNA-guided nucleases.
A new investigation being conducted by Frontline is focusing on the accuracy of DNA samples used in criminal cases.
Single-pass tangential flow filtration (TFF) with Pellicon cassettes is an enhanced application of EMD Millipore’s existing TFF technology that allows concentration of process streams without the recirculation required in traditional TFF.
Panlab’s Rota Rod provides an easy way to test the effects of drugs, brain damage, or diseases on motor coordination or fatigue resistance in rodents. The animal is placed in one of the rotating lanes of the Rota Road and the timer is started. Latency to fall (minutes and seconds) and rotational speed are automatically recorded.
ZenBio, Inc. released a new GroPro Cell Culture Growth Supplement. The product line allows for culturing of primary cells and cell lines without the concern for transmission of bovine prions and xenogeneic reactions.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB), has introduced Sartoclear Dynamics, a clarification system featuring new single-use technology for harvesting mammalian cell cultures with high cell densities.
The SureScan Dx from Agilent Technologies Inc. is a microarray scanner indicated for use in a clinical laboratory environment when measuring fluorescence signals of labeled DNA or RNA targets hybridized to microarrays used as part of a validated diagnostic assay.
Researchers have developed a new informatics technology that analyzes existing data repositories of protein modifications and 3D protein structures to help scientists identify and target research on "hotspots" most likely to be important for biological function.
A new study identifies new immune molecules that protect against deadly Marburg virus, a relative of Ebola virus.
