Scientists engineer helpful protein that has greatly increased specificity
In case you missed any exciting news on Bioscience Technology last week, here is a round-up of the top five most popular stories.
A new type of blood test is starting to transform cancer treatment, sparing some patients the surgical and needle biopsies long needed to guide their care.
Watson, the supercomputer seen on Jeopardy, will play an important role in this partnership.
EMD Millipore’s guava easyCyte 12 flow cytometry system provides a simple benchtop method for multicolor flow cytometry.
Scientists discover new type of stem cell that could potentially generate mature, functional tissues.
It was first described in Greek mythology. Leda was impregnated by both Zeus, masquerading as a swan, and her legitimate husband. The resulting children had two different fathers. Several millennia later, it still sounds impossible: twins born at the same time, from the same mother – but with different paternity.
Region of world’s strongest “internal waves” is analyzed in detail; work could help refine climate models.
Complex life – from humans to hamsters--may have evolved suddenly from a rare event. After two billion years of simple bacterial and archaeal life reigning on earth, an archaea may have swallowed a bacterium, and become a new creature with enough energy to grow and diversity like never before: the eukaryote.
The translation of extracellular vesicle research to the clinic to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of many disease types will require the development of standard assays for their characterization and quantification. The challenge of such analysis lies in the submicron size (generally 50-1000 nm in diameter) of each vesicle, as well as the complexity of the biofluids in which they are typically suspended.
The discovery of a 500 million-year-old fossilized brain has helped identify a point of crucial transformation in early animals, and answered some of the questions about how heads first evolved.
It takes two minutes for this test to find the parasite.
For the first time, Ebola has been discovered inside the eyes of a patient months after the virus was gone from his blood.
Designed for specific research applications, NWRimage system offers breakthrough sub-micron spatial resolution and fast signal response.
DuraClone IM premixed dry reagent cocktails from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences standardize and streamline workflow for high-content flow cytometry in translational research studies involving identification of cellular sub-populations of the human immune system.
