The “Two-Headed Monster”: Vendors Tackle Antibody Validation
The Science Advisory Board examined the preferences of scientists regarding the purchase and use of antibodies, as well as customer trust, satisfaction, and "best-in-class" vendors in the sector. Respondents also made comments detailing their ideas on reproducible research using antibodies, the responsibilities of both vendors and researchers when it comes to using commercial antibodies, and much more.  Discuss
Next Generation Sequencing Data: Tertiary Analysis
As Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology develops, the analysis and interpretation of NGS data will prove to be one of the most complex aspects of transforming NGS data into meaningful results. Tertiary analysis, which follows primary and secondary analysis of the data, is among the most challenging steps.  Discuss
Analytical Instruments for Security: ‘To Detect and to Protect’
One important trend in the analytical instrumentation industry is the continued migration of laboratory technologies into non-laboratory settings. As instruments become more robust, easier to use and smaller, they have escaped the lab into the field in many different applications from environmental testing to point-of-care diagnostics. One critical use for instruments in the field is for security applications, protecting everyone from accidental and intentional threats to human health and public safety.  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
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
