Origin of Complex Life

May 8, 2015 10:33 am | by Cynthia Fox, Science Writer | Articles | Comments

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.


Enhanced Analysis of Extracellular Vesicles with Imaging Flow Cytometry

May 8, 2015 10:11 am | by Sherree Friend, Ph.D. Product Manager, Amnis, and Robin Clark, Content Development Scientist, EMD Millipore | Articles | Comments

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.
