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
High Performance Liquid Chromatography: A Growing Technology Driven by Pharmacology
Vaccines strengthen our immune systems by exposing white blood cells to disease-specific antigens. This builds a depot of memory T cells, so in the case of a full-on infection, our bodies can fight off malicious organisms with greater ease. Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has been working to develop an HIV vaccine for the past 30 years. This revolutionary medical tool would help reduce the dreadful effects of AIDS on the world population, for many years to come.  Discuss
Overlooked benefits of using polyclonal antibodies
The benefits of polyclonal antibodies as tools for assay-specific target discovery and detection are numerous. As the future of basic research, diagnostics and biomarker discovery is dependent on high-quality reproducible data, there is a need to understand the importance of and benefits of these valuable tools.  Discuss
Personalized Treatments and Vaccines Offer Hope for Beating Rare Cancers
Immunotherapy is undoubtedly one of the most influential and exciting fields of our time, with an ability to unlock the foundations of diseases and move one step closer to curing cancer. Technology and advanced research are allowing this science to flourish, and treatments have been developed targeting the ways cancer can mask itself and remain undetected in many cases.  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
