Scientists Discuss Career Satisfaction
How satisfied are you with your career as a scientist? Do you feel adequately compensated for your work? Have you ever considered leaving your career in science? The Science Advisory Board set out to explore the answers to these questions. We interviewed over 600 of your fellow members from various disciplines across the world to understand their personal experiences and thoughts on the subject.  Discuss
Direct-to-consumer Testing Kits Exploded in 2018
Consumers are directing healthcare in many ways, but ordering clinical testing was, until recently, the exclusive purview of physicians. That’s changing as many services now exist for patients to order tests without a physician’s okay. The global direct to consumer (DTC) laboratory testing market totaled $208 million in 2018. Growth historically has been slower due to a lack of regulatory oversight and concerns within the industry. Strong growth is expected throughout the forecast period due to easing of the regulatory processes for DTC laboratory tests and increasing consumer demand for both direct-to-consumer routine clinical laboratory tests and genetic tests.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Color Measurement Technology
In today’s post, we’ll uncover a few ways to analyze the visual and molecular characteristics of a sample. Color measurement technology comprises a multitude of closely related instruments and photometric techniques that analyze the properties of a sample in terms of color, brightness, and other visual characteristics. Fluorescent-based techniques provide a wealth of information about a sample's atomic and molecular characteristics. I’ll discuss color measurement first, then describe the fluorescent technologies second.  Discuss
Scientists Speak Out on Research Misconduct
The scientific community is one of skepticism. The guarded interest of researchers and peer reviewers upholds a key understanding of scientific knowledge -- that any hypothesis is only as strong as the evidence that supports it.  Discuss
Biosimilars: How the FDA is Boosting Demand in Analytical Instrumentation
Establishing a regulatory pathway for pharmaceutical companies in the U.S. to manufacture biosimilar drugs presents a much anticipated new market opportunity for life science analytical instrument users.  Discuss
