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
Recent Developments in Advanced Microscopy
The past year has yielded exciting improvements in advanced microscopy technologies, including confocal, multiphoton, light sheet fluorescence and other super-resolution techniques. The continued growth of these tools was fueled by both innovative technological development and life science companies establishing new partnerships. In this article, we will discuss some of the cutting-edge advances in microscopy.  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
Oncologists Embrace the Liquid Biopsy for Precision Cancer Treatment
Here at The Science Advisory Board we aim to keep ahead of the curve with the latest breakthroughs in the life sciences field. An exciting advancement to follow in this space is precision medicine. The NIH defines precision medicine as “an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person." Within the last week, the liquid biopsy has made headlines as a diagnostic test for patients with cancer.  Discuss
Competition within Single-Cell Analysis Technology
The excitement surrounding the ability to measure genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, and metabolic status in individual cells is reflected in the high level of activity we’ve seen this past year. We at The Science Advisory Board are excited to share with our members some of the highlights we’ve observed within single-cell analysis this past year.  Discuss
Researchers Speak Out on CRISPR Products
Rarely in the scientific realm does a niche technique explode into a viable market worth billions of dollars over just a handful of years. When it does, the chaos that ensues is driven by the scrambling of life science product and service providers who vie with each other to secure market share.  Discuss
What Scientists Want from CRISPR Companies
Laboratories around the world are adopting the CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technique for their research. Whether to engineer better cell lines for drug development or repair mutations that cause genetic diseases, researchers have only begun to tap into the tremendous potential that CRISPR/Cas9 promises. Consequently, the genome editing market, of which CRISPR/Cas9 already accounts for more than half, is poised to expand rapidly over the coming years.  Discuss
Finding the Right Match - How Scientists See Antibody Suppliers
We at The Science Advisory Board recognize that scientific customers can exhibit remarkable brand loyalty. When we explored the antibody market in 2012, our members explained they make research antibody purchases based on “previous experience with the brand” and “colleague/coworker’s recommendations” as the most important selections overall.  Discuss
Research Antibodies - Friend or Foe?
Research antibodies are used in basic and clinical research because they recognize and bind to specific antigens, receptors, infectious organisms, and other proteins.  Discuss
