The Role of Microscopy in Surface Science
October 17, 2018 -- 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
The Broadening Applications of Molecular Diagnostics
October 12, 2018 -- The global advancement of health care and medication capabilities increasingly depend on the study of genetics and the human genome. Discovery of the underlying traits that determine genetic disorders now grant the ability to diagnose and monitor a patient’s disease, detect their health risk, and assess which remedies are best suited for prevention or treatment. The technologies able to perform these tests and engage in this type of research comprise the field of molecular diagnostics (MDx).  Discuss
Advion Reaches Milestone Orders for its expression Compact Mass Spectrometer
October 9, 2018 -- 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
October 5, 2018 -- 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
October 3, 2018 -- 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
October 1, 2018 -- 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
