What Scientists Want from CRISPR Companies
June 19, 2018 -- Laboratories around the world are adopting the CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technique for their research. Whether to engineer better cell lines for drug development or repair mutations that cause genetic diseases, researchers have only begun to tap into the tremendous potential that CRISPR/Cas9 promises. Consequently, the genome editing market, of which CRISPR/Cas9 already accounts for more than half, is poised to expand rapidly over the coming years.  Discuss
Tech Overview – Supercritical Fluid Chromatography
June 14, 2018 -- Supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) is one of the few “green” purification technologies in the research space today. The method is unique in that a supercritical fluid is used as the mobile phase. This is a substance that has been both compressed and heated beyond its critical point, and thus a distinct liquid or gas phase does not exist; instead it is a supercritical fluid. The fluid is unique in that it has the high density of a liquid but the low viscosity of a gas. Read on to learn more!  Discuss
Life Scientists Online – Connecting, Influencing, Sharing.
June 12, 2018 -- As generations pass by and new forms of communication develop, different preferences for social interaction are beginning to dominate. This has led to new trends in how scientists connect with brand executives, and will continue to affect how major organizations approach the life science market.  Discuss
Emerging Trends in Communicating with Vendors
June 7, 2018 -- Significant changes are occurring in the life science market for consumers. Many are turning to digital sources for product information. The integrations of analytical instruments and sensors that monitor performance is becoming increasingly common in life science research laboratories. Multiple studies have shown that consumer engagement with visual content is significantly longer than with text and is more readily sharable than text-based marketing.  Discuss
Tech Overview – Thin Layer Chromatography
June 5, 2018 -- Check out the next piece in our series on chromatography. This week, we take a look at thin layer chromatography (TLC). This method was introduced in the 1950’s as a fast, easy, and inexpensive method for qualitative analysis in laboratories across the globe.  Discuss
Regulatory Changes in China
May 29, 2018 -- According to China’s FDA (CFDA), the State Council issued two five-year plans on food and drug safety earlier this year that will impact analytical instrument manufacturers. According to the plan, 97% of agricultural products are required to meet quality standards by 2020. The plan on drug safety states that pharmaceutical drug quality is to be improved, calling for the approval of 289 generic drugs, as well as the reform of 3,050 national drug standards and 500 medical equipment standards by 2020. Read on to find out how these changes will impact instrument makers and more.  Discuss
Finding the Right Match - How Scientists See Antibody Suppliers
May 15, 2018 -- 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?
May 8, 2018 -- Research antibodies are used in basic and clinical research because they recognize and bind to specific antigens, receptors, infectious organisms, and other proteins.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Analytical HPLC
March 21, 2018 -- Here at The Science Advisory Board we are starting a new series on analytical and life science instrumentation. In the past wet chemistry methods were put to use in order to perform chemical analyses. Modern analytical instruments accomplish similar tasks, but with greater sensitivity and specificity. Their increased user-friendliness has made laboratory life far easier for scientists and labs can now speed up procedures and analyze samples to an extent that would have been perhaps unimaginable only a decade or two ago. Each week we will present new content on a multitude of topics ranging from mass spectrometry to life science instrumentation like Sanger Sequencing.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Gas Chromatography
March 21, 2018 -- Today at The Science Advisory Board we will share another part of our Chromatography Series. Whether this technology is used frequently in your lab, or you simply want to learn more about how Gas chromatography works, be sure to keep reading.  Discuss
