Sage Science launched of Pippin Link and Pippin Pulse, two new products designed to streamline library prep workflow and enhance the utility of the Pippin line of automated DNA size selection products. The Pippin Link is an accessory for the Pippin Prep and BluePippin that lets users boost throughput by connecting up to eight instruments and controlling them from a single computer.
Coherent introduced a new range of fiber-pigtailed (FP) lasers into its portfolio of FP products. The new Sapphire FP lasers are compact, CW, visible lasers that offer a combination of low noise and output stability. These lasers are available at seven wavelengths (458 nm, 488 nm, 514 nm, 532 nm, 552 nm, 561 nm and 588 nm), at output powers of up to 120 mW.
Life sciences research today is advancing exponentially, each step bringing us closer to the realization of truly personalized medicine–preventive care and treatments designed specifically for each individual. In the near future, PCPGM healthcare researchers expect to be able to use predictive genetic testing to create custom treatment plans for individuals and deliver dramatic improvements over today’s one-size-fits-all approach. But research capabilities are only part of the equation; current storage and operating capacities must also evolve to accommodate ever-expanding amounts of data before the goal of personalized medicine can be realized.
