Data Dashboards and the Changing Landscape of Data Visualization
Every day, mankind creates 2.5 quintillion bytes of data. The rate of our data production is so great that 90% of the world’s data today was created in the last two years alone. This information flows from many sources; climate sensors, investing algorithms, music videos and social media posts all contribute to the formation of a worldwide data repository of immense volume.  Discuss
CRISPR-Cas9's Impact on Current Tools and Techniques
Diving into the second part of the CRISPR workflow series, we are exploring how our panel believes that current tools, techniques and methods will be impacted due to the increased abundance of CRISPR technology in their labs. We know that life science suppliers are seeking preeminence in newly formed product lines for CRISPR/Cas9 kits and consumables, yet the ripple-effect of CRISPR’s rise may be felt in more mature applications that are used for validation in the CRISPR/Cas9 workflow.  Discuss
The Role of Microscopy in Surface Science
Surface science technologies include instruments involved in analyzing and observing the chemical and physical surface properties of a material, especially through the use of various microscopy techniques. At The Science Advisory Board, we examined industry growth for optical, electron, scanning probe, confocal & advanced microscopes, as well as surface analyzers. Advanced techniques such as super-resolution microscopy and digital microscopes are shaping this field, which we project to grow by 5.6% annually through 2020.  Discuss
Advion Reaches Milestone Orders for its expression Compact Mass Spectrometer
Today, Advion announced that during the year ending December 31, 2017, the company sold 58 units of its expression Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS) per quarter, totaling a milestone of over 700 orders of the instrument. Advion, a leading provider of synthetic organic, natural product and peptide discovery chemistry mass spectrometry (MS) solutions, unveiled the single quadrupole CMS in 2011 for chemistry applications such as real-time reaction monitoring, mass confirmations of flash fractions and LC/MS.  Discuss
Improving the CRISPR-Cas9 Workflow
Following the insights gained from past research, we fielded a survey to our expert panel of scientists to quantify how the emergence of CRISPR is impacting the use of traditional tools and techniques. In this article, we are revealing some verbatim answers from the questionnaire.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry
If you have been following our mass spec series you have certainly recognized the number of different ways mass spec can be used to separate ions of different masses. Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry (TOF-MS) was developed in the 1940’s and began to gain popularity in the 1990’s. Since then, the technology has been enhanced and updated to be the device we have today.  Discuss
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
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
NGS Informatics: Choosing the Superior Software Tool
As Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) continues to grow, scientists face many challenges in terms of their data analysis and storage solutions. Our members at The Science Advisory Board have disclosed it is difficult to determine the significance of results as well as store the mass amounts of data. There are many solutions but most lack desired features, creating uncertainty amongst researchers over the best option.  Discuss
