People who shared an apartment with the country's first Ebola patient are emerging from quarantine healthy. And while Thomas Eric Duncan died and two U.S. nurses were infected caring for him, there are successes, too: A nurse infected in Spain has recovered, as have four American aid workers infected in West Africa. Even there, not everyone dies.
The JSX-1000S ElementEye from JEOL is an easy-to-use, smart solution for high-sensitivity...
Ever wondered how people figure out what is fair? Look to the brain for the answer....
A group of scholars issued a statement skeptical about the effectiveness of so-called "...
Researchers have successfully transplanted “organoids” of functioning human intestinal tissue grown from pluripotent stem cells in a lab dish into mice– creating an unprecedented model for studying diseases of the intestine.
The Chameleon Pre-stained Protein Ladders from LI-COR offer the unique advantage of multi-colored visible and two-color near infrared (NIR) fluorescence detection in a single ladder.
A surprise discovery that overturns decades of thinking about how the body fixes proteins that come unraveled greatly expands opportunities for therapies to prevent diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, which have been linked to the accumulation of improperly folded proteins in the brain.
The seemingly miraculous power of babies’ hearts to repair themselves after being injured has spurred a research team to investigate if this ability can be harnessed for new heart attack treatments.
In acute asthma, various triggers, including viral illnesses and aeroallergens, can cause acute narrowing of the airways leading to a life-threatening respiratory crisis and sometimes death. Researchers have identified a novel factor that puts the brakes on airway smooth-muscle contraction relevant to asthma.
As San Diego’s ViaCyte was in the midst of launching the first FDA-approved embryonic stem (ES) cell clinical trial for diabetics last week, Boston’s Harvard University reported that cells made from ES cells “cured” diabetic mice.
Alexa Fluor 680/790 secondary antibodies from Abcam plc are for use in fluorescent western blotting.
Using ultrasound to deliver power wirelessly, researchers are working on a new generation of medical devices that would be planted deep inside the body to monitor illness, deliver therapies and relieve pain.
The second health care worker diagnosed with Ebola in Texas is a 29-year-old nurse who treated the Liberian man who died of the disease in a Dallas hospital.
Lethal fibrosis in lungs of mice with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) can be reversed, say researchers. No drug on the market can do this. But the crew pulled it off, in mice, by temporarily restoring (a mimic of) one of the body’s own anti-fibrosis agents, sharply reduced in IPF: microRNA-29.
The discovery of a cellular snooze button has allowed a team of scientists to potentially improve biofuel production and offer insight on the early stages of cancer.
Results of a small clinical trial suggest that a chemical derived from broccoli sprouts— and best known for claims that it can help prevent certain cancers— may ease classic behavioral symptoms in those with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).
A team of scientists and engineers developed a new surface coating for medical devices using materials already approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The coating repelled blood from more than 20 medically relevant substrates the team tested.
The Acid Storage Cabinet from HEMCO is specifically designed for the storage of corrosive chemicals.
Just look into the light: not quite, but researchers have used light to erase specific memories in mice, and proved a basic theory of how different parts of the brain work together to retrieve episodic memories.
Scientists have discovered a new class of molecules– produced in human and mouse fat– that protects against diabetes. The researchers found that giving this new fat to mice with the equivalent of type 2 diabetes lowered their elevated blood sugar.
Neoteryx LLC, a new technology spin-off of Phenomenex, Inc., offers the Mitra (RUO) Microsampling Device for the collection, transport, storage, and analysis of biological fluids.
An experimental drug saved the lives of 16 of 16 monkeys with the Marburg virus, a killer near-indistinguishable from Ebola, which caused the death of a Ugandan health worker Oct. 6.
Studying rats as model subjects, scientists found that adolescents were at an increased risk of suffering negative health effects from sugar-sweetened beverage consumption.
A team of engineers has successfully developed a three-dimensional-printed device, which mimics the operation of the liver to remove dangerous toxins from the blood.
Two Americans and a German scientist won the Nobel Prize in chemistry Wednesday for finding ways to make microscopes more powerful than previously thought possible, allowing scientists to see how diseases develop inside the tiniest cells.
Real-time qPCR is one of the most ubiquitous laboratory techniques in modern life sciences, commonly used for gene expression analyses and diagnosing infectious diseases. But despite being more than two decades old, many researchers continue to perform qPCR incorrectly and overlook the important step of primer validation and optimization.
Micronic offers externally threaded 3.00ml tube that provides a fully traceable storage solution for tissue samples.
In a new study that should make it easier to develop stem-cell-based therapies, a team of researchers has identified three physical characteristics of MSCs that can distinguish them from other immature cells found in the bone marrow.
How much coffee do you drink every day? One cup in the morning? Or do you gulp it all day? Scientists have long known that your DNA influences how much java you consume. Now a huge study has identified some genes that may play a role.
