Rise of Genomics Spurs Innovation in Instruments & Techniques
July 17, 2018 -- The global advance of health care increasingly depends on the study of genetics and the human genome. From determining the genetic composition of a tumor to revealing rare genetic disorders in newborns, innovative technologies and techniques have given us the ability to diagnose and monitor a patient’s disease, assess their health risk, and decide which remedies are best suited for prevention or treatment.  Discuss
Overlooked benefits of using polyclonal antibodies
July 14, 2018 -- The benefits of polyclonal antibodies as tools for assay-specific target discovery and detection are numerous. As the future of basic research, diagnostics and biomarker discovery is dependent on high-quality reproducible data, there is a need to understand the importance of and benefits of these valuable tools.  Discuss
Ion Chromatography
July 5, 2018 -- Ion chromatography allows for the separation of anions and cations in an ionic solution. The mobile phase consists of an ionic solution, which runs through the stationary phase, a column packed with ion exchange resin.  Discuss
New Research Products Abound in the First Half of 2018
June 29, 2018 -- We’re approximately half way through 2018, and the members of The Science Advisory Board continue to help drive innovation by sharing their opinions on new product concepts presented to them by the corporate sponsors of many of our studies. … Read more  Discuss
Personalized Treatments and Vaccines Offer Hope for Beating Rare Cancers
June 28, 2018 -- Immunotherapy is undoubtedly one of the most influential and exciting fields of our time, with an ability to unlock the foundations of diseases and move one step closer to curing cancer. Technology and advanced research are allowing this science to flourish, and treatments have been developed targeting the ways cancer can mask itself and remain undetected in many cases.  Discuss
Clinical Mass Spectroscopy Projected to Grow by 7.6% Over Next Five Years
June 26, 2018 -- We project the mass spectroscopy market to grow by 7.6% over the next 5 years. In this study, we will focus on the clinical applications for mass spec.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Low Pressure Liquid Chromatography
June 26, 2018 -- In our latest Tech Overviews article, we will discuss low-pressure liquid chromatography (LPLC) systems. Both types of chromatography separate components of a mixture by exploiting physical and chemical characteristics of the components present in the mixture. Like other types of chromatography, LPLC contains a mobile phase and a stationary phase.  Discuss
Researchers Speak Out on CRISPR Products
June 21, 2018 -- Rarely in the scientific realm does a niche technique explode into a viable market worth billions of dollars over just a handful of years. When it does, the chaos that ensues is driven by the scrambling of life science product and service providers who vie with each other to secure market share.  Discuss
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
