Why do labs have such difficultly getting a handle on the source of OOS results? Part of the answer can be attributed to the still-common practice of manual volumetric sample preparation. Now, there is a new technique: gravimetric sample preparation.
One day, hopefully sooner rather than later, a truly energy-efficient, ultra-low-...
People with mental health problems are “significantly” more likely to have stroke or heart...
In a new study, scientists found that a particular set of cells in a small region of the...
The three-dimensional biology company Organovo Holdings Inc. announced the full commercial release of the exVive3D Human Liver Tissue for preclinical drug discovery testing.
A new, low impact low energy laser treatment for patients with early age-related macular degeneration (AMD) has produced positive results by reducing indicators of the disease.
Cleveland Clinic surgeons have replaced nearly the entire face of a middle-aged man severely disfigured in a car accident, the hospital announced.
More than 30,000 brain advocates from academia, industry and media converged on Washington, D.C. this week for the 44th annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. Read more...
November is already halfway over— which means we’re also halfway through National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month, which celebrates and raises awareness for the nearly 5.4 million people who have this condition. Read more...
In a new study looking at mice, researchers have investigated a local clock found in another part of the brain, outside the SCN, known as the tuberomamillary nucleus (TMN).
A new study from geneticists has found that the DNA replication plan— including where the origin points are and in what order DNA segments get copied- varies from person to person.
New research in flies shows how cells in adult reproductive organs maintain their sexual identity. The study also identified a mutation that can switch the cells’ sexual identity.
In a long-term study of interactions between chimpanzees in the famous Gombe National Park in Tanzania, researchers have found that males who consistently bully females tend to father more babies with their victims.
Is it possible to change the amount of information the brain can store? Maybe, according to a new international study, which identified a molecule that puts a brake on brain processing and when removed, brain function and memory recall is improved.
The GPR-850 Gel Protein Recovery instrument from Protea Biosciences Group Inc. delivers efficient recovery of gel separated intact proteins through a multiplexed, automated, microfluidics chip-based process.
The T:Genius imaging system from Syngene allows high performance, walk-away imaging of gels and blots on a smartphone or tablet.
Ki-Bum Lee has developed patent-pending technology that may overcome one of the critical barriers to harnessing the full therapeutic potential of stem cells.
There’s a cast of characters deep inside your ears- many kinds of tiny cells working together to allow you to hear. Hair cells, the lead actors, play the crucial role. But new research shows that when it comes to restoring lost hearing ability, the spotlight may fall on some of the ear’s supporting actors.
Humans, like many animals, are accustomed to seeing objects pass behind us as we go forward. Moving backwards feels unnatural. In a new study, scientists reveal that moving forward actually trains the brain to perceive the world normally.
Researchers are collaborating and innovating in ways that are transforming health care as we know it. They're also looking ahead at the trends and influences that are reshaping and accelerating translational science.
Chris Viehbacher, the high-flying pharma executive, had his career with Sanofi derailed for a variety of surprising factors. Here's a look at the odd ouster of the former CEO.
VICI Valco’s Cheminert Model M6 and M50 Liquid Handling Pumps are made for precision handling of liquids and/or gases.
ArtelWare v1.1, the first in a series of upgrades in development at Artel, provides new functionality for the management of automated liquid handlers.
When munched by grazing animals (or mauled by scientists in the lab), some herbaceous plants overcompensate– producing more plant matter and becoming more fertile than they otherwise would. Scientists say they now know how these plants accomplish this feat of regeneration.
Researchers have developed the first gene network to be operated via brainwaves. Depending on the user’s thoughts, it can produce various amounts of a desired molecule.
A new microscope, using a new form of the much-hailed light sheet-based fluorescence microscopy (LSFM), makes visible— via stunning movies— countless biological processes once deemed utterly invisible: sub-cellular activity.
A new study from Tel Aviv University found that an "enriched environment"— specially enhanced surroundings— led to rehabilitation of mice following traumatic brain injury.
The Slimline Series UV transilluminator from Spectronics Corp. is ideal for working with mini gels and samples.
Scientists have come a step closer to understanding how cartilage senses injury-causing mechanical strain at the cellular level: a pair of channels that work together to cause cartilage cells to die off in droves.
