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
CRISPR - A New Era in Genome Editing
July 25, 2018 -- A major buzzword in the science world recently has been CRISPR: short for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats. This is a simple, yet powerful genome-editing technique that has recently taken the scientific community by storm. When coupled with the Cas9 protein, the technology allows for specific changes (addition, modification, and deletions) to be made to the DNA of humans, animals, and plants, thereby offering a tremendous potential in a wide array of applications from agriculture biotechnology to therapeutics.  Discuss
Competition within Single-Cell Analysis Technology
July 24, 2018 -- The excitement surrounding the ability to measure genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, and metabolic status in individual cells is reflected in the high level of activity we’ve seen this past year. We at The Science Advisory Board are excited to share with our members some of the highlights we’ve observed within single-cell analysis this past year.  Discuss
Tech Overview - GC/MS
July 22, 2018 -- Today’s piece will discuss gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS). GC/MS is a technique used to identify components of complex mixtures and determine the molecular weights of the compounds.  Discuss
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
