Tech Overview - MALDI-TOF
Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight, more simply known as MALDI-TOF, is a powerful mass spectrometry technique primarily used for the analysis of biomolecules that respond poorly to hard ionization techniques.  Discuss
Compact Image-Based Cell Analyzers
At The Science Advisory Board, we have the opportunity to explore many different types of research technology on behalf of our scientific community. In this article we discuss the $50 million market for compact image-based cell analyzers. Broadly, cytometers refer to instruments that can measure various characteristics of cell populations in suspension. Depending on which and how many characteristics or parameters they address, these systems can be classified differently.  Discuss
High Performance Liquid Chromatography: A Technical Perspective
We’ve already discussed how scientists use high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and why it’s important during the process of making discoveries. Suppliers also have a significant role in this process, since they provide scientists with the tools they need. At The Science Advisory Board, our intention is to inform people about technologies like HPLC, including associated instruments, consumables, and services. Let’s take a quick look at a few of the techniques that are of notable interest to various scientific fields.  Discuss
Keys to Success: Understanding Various Sample Preparation Techniques
The term “sample preparation” covers a huge range of different applications, techniques, and instruments. However, since the development of sample preparation is growing so quickly, it’s necessary for life science suppliers to focus on the technology’s major areas of growth. Our upcoming Sample Prep report focuses on three of these areas: preparative chromatography, extraction techniques, and nucleic acid preparation.  Discuss
Real-Time PCR: A Mature Technology that is Still Evolving
Though a mature technology for many years, real-time PCR has still seen growth and advancements in both application as well as throughput efficiency over the past decade, and even in the last few years.  Discuss
"In Plastico" Research: Who Provides the Best Labware?
In times of remarkable technological advances, we often overlook the products our lab depends upon, plasticware. As scientists, we recognize the versatility plastics offer us in terms of strength, flexibility, safety, and convenience when compared to our once exclusively glass products. Some researchers now suggest the term “in plastico” be added to the life scientist’s lexicon since an increasing amount of research is no longer performed “in vitro”.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Flash Chromatography
Today’s focus will be on flash chromatography, a special type of column chromatography. Flash chromatography is a preparative liquid chromatography method that can quickly and easily separate organic compounds. This technique offers fast results because pressurized gas pushes the solvent through the column of the stationary phase, rather than rely on slower, gravity-based chromatography.  Discuss
Tech Overview - GC/MS
Today’s piece will discuss gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS). GC/MS is a technique used to identify components of complex mixtures and determine the molecular weights of the compounds.  Discuss
Ion Chromatography
Ion chromatography allows for the separation of anions and cations in an ionic solution. The mobile phase consists of an ionic solution, which runs through the stationary phase, a column packed with ion exchange resin.  Discuss
New Research Products Abound in the First Half of 2018
We’re approximately half way through 2018, and the members of The Science Advisory Board continue to help drive innovation by sharing their opinions on new product concepts presented to them by the corporate sponsors of many of our studies. … Read more  Discuss
