Tech Overview - Organic Elemental Analysis
We're back again with another article in our atomic spectroscopy series! Today we are discussing organic elemental analyzers. At the Science Board we classify organic elemental analyzers as instruments specialized for the measurement of elements strongly associated with organic molecules, as well as samples typically studied within the life sciences.  Discuss
The Future is Here... Applications of 3D Printing in Biopharmaceuticals
There’s some seriously cool science being developed with the help of 3D printing including transparent skulls to allow researchers to view real-time brain activity, and a sponge that “soaks up” excess chemo drugs to reduce toxic side effects. In bioprocessing and drug discovery, 3D printing has already been instrumental in changing the way the industry functions with the dawn of precision medicine and applications in single-use technologies. Applications in the medical industry are disruptive and many scientists are focused on innovations in medical devices, and regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. Manufacturing plays a vital role in supporting nearly all sectors of the global economy and 3D printing, or “additive manufacturing”, is poised to change the landscape of manufacturing in the U.S. and the world.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Inorganic Elemental Analysis
Welcome to the next piece in our atomic spectroscopy series! This post will feature inorganic analyzers. At The Science Advisory Board we consider inorganic analyzers to include instruments that detect and measure elements that are not typically associated with organic chemistry, as well as organic elements that are detectable in inorganic materials (such as measuring carbon in steel).  Discuss
AACR 2019: Sessions Detail Advances in Liquid Biopsies, Machine Learning and Technology Transfer
This year, AACR took place in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Georgia World Congress Center from March 29 to April 3. The conference brought together 21,000 scientists and life science professionals, and 533 exhibiting companies. Sessions not only covered the newest clinical and translational research, but also how AI and machine learning are improving our ability to understand what we already know on a genomic level. Organizations such as the NCI presented on topics including policy, technology transfer and the benefits of private-public partnerships.  Discuss
Is It Worth The Risk? Business Trends You Should Know About In The Bioprocessing Industry
The bioprocessing market is currently worth billions of dollars globally and is expected to increase 8.7 percent over the next five years. Pharmaceutical and biotech industries are the largest consumers of bioprocessing and their demand is expected to increase 9.3 percent over the next five years. Within these industries there are a limited number of vendors with the largest market share, including: Danaher (Pall & GE Life Sciences), MilliporeSigma (Merck Group) and Thermo Fisher. All of us probably have used products from one, if not all, of these companies at some point in our scientific careers. So the question is: how did these companies grow so large and gain dominance in the bioprocessing field?  Discuss
Tech Overview - ICP and Glow Discharge Spectroscopy
Our next piece in the Atomic Spec series will feature Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) and Glow Discharge Spectroscopy. ICP is a technique for atomic analysis that relies on atomic emission. ICP is sometimes referred to as ICP-AES or ICP-OES (atomic/optical emission spectroscopy). When given enough energy to put in an excited state, atoms of a particular element emit a certain pattern of light frequencies than can be used to identify the element and its abundance in a sample.  Discuss
