Human embryos make viral proteins within days of fertilization.
One of the main sessions at this year’s Experimental Biology Conference in Boston was the Tang Prize Award lecture.
Aalborg Instruments’ ZFM Mass Flow Meters combine meter intelligence, user convenience, and outstanding flow performance. They are designed for multi-gas/multi-range functionality up to 8 bar (currently 6 gases) and standard accuracy of ± (0.5% RD + 0.2% FS) based on actual calibration.
The new Purair 5 Ductless Fume Hoods from Air Science USA feature a high level of operator protection where routine work is being carried out. The units exceed OSHA, ANSI and all relevant international standards. The Ductless design eliminates installation costs and allows the unit to be positioned over a sink or benchtop apparatus.
Torrey Pines Scientific Inc. announces its new EchoTherm Model HP61A Programmable Hot Plate with a 12” x 12” milled-flat cast aluminum heater top. Applications include wafer processing and annealing, polymer engineering, baking photo resists, wax and glue heating and bonding, micro fabrication and encapsulation, surface mount soldering, and heating any sample direct...
Flow Sciences Process Enclosures are designed and customized to protect the process equipment and the personnel. The EVP Series provides safety from chemical vapors generated during processes such as flash chromatography, evaporation from rotary evaporators, and other process equipment applications.
Scientific Systems, Inc. (SSI) has recently launched their Next Generation Product Line, which includes seven new classes of pumps. Described here is the LS Class, consisting of reliable single-headed, positive displacement piston pumps with very low pulsation and high accuracy.
Extending its portfolio of super-resolution microscopy products, Leica launched the Leica SR GSD 3D, a widefield system that offers 2D and 3D super-resolution imaging of molecules and cellular structures. Based on GSD (Ground State Depletion) or dSTORM technology, the widefield fluorescence microscope attains resolutions of down to 20 nm in the lateral and 50 nm in the axial direction.
Researchers find key to a critical enzyme’s many roles. The enzyme AMPK initiates many different cellular activities, even though its own activity is controlled by a single switch.
A single cell type in the skin of mice is a major contributor to scarring after wound healing or radiation damage, and facilitates the growth of melanoma. Blocking the cell’s activity in humans may be possible with currently approved drugs.
When two lung transplant surgeons were looking for an innovative solution to a long-standing problem—not enough lungs available for patients who need them—they approached Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, Ph.D., the Mikati Foundation Professor of Biomedical Engineering and a professor of medical sciences (in medicine).
Research suggests strategy to prevent relapse after therapies targeting tumor blood vessels.
There will be 60,000 annual cases of chronic subdural hematoma (SDH) by 2030, making SDH the U.S.’s most common adult brain surgery disorder, says a new study by New York University (NYU) researchers.
