Tech Overview - Magnetic Sector Mass Spectrometry
August 16, 2018 -- Magnetic sector mass spectrometry is the oldest and simplest of the mass spectrometry techniques. It makes use of combinations of magnetic and electric “sectors” that deflect sample ions as they pass through.  Discuss
"In Plastico" Research: Who Provides the Best Labware?
August 15, 2018 -- In times of remarkable technological advances, we often overlook the products our lab depends upon, plasticware. As scientists, we recognize the versatility plastics offer us in terms of strength, flexibility, safety, and convenience when compared to our once exclusively glass products. Some researchers now suggest the term “in plastico” be added to the life scientist’s lexicon since an increasing amount of research is no longer performed “in vitro”.  Discuss
Tech Overview - FT and Ion Trap Mass Spectrometry
August 13, 2018 -- In our latest post in the Mass Spec series we will discuss two great technologies: Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FT/MS)and Ion Trap LC/MS. FT/MS includes ion cyclotron resonance (ICR) designs and Orbitrap mass analyzers.  Discuss
NGS Informatics: Choosing the Superior Software Tool
July 30, 2018 -- 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
Oncologists Embrace the Liquid Biopsy for Precision Cancer Treatment
July 27, 2018 -- 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
Tech Overview - Flash Chromatography
July 26, 2018 -- Today’s focus will be on flash chromatography, a special type of column chromatography. Flash chromatography is a preparative liquid chromatography method that can quickly and easily separate organic compounds. This technique offers fast results because pressurized gas pushes the solvent through the column of the stationary phase, rather than rely on slower, gravity-based chromatography.  Discuss
