How can I incorporate innovative techniques to make my histology workflow easier and more reliable?
Breathtaking progress in life sciences has brought us innovations such as high-throughput and individually affordable genomic sequencing as well as next-generation flow cytometry that can phenotype dissociated cells for their expression of dozens of markers simultaneously.Read More
In part I we examined the evolution of outsourcing in drug discovery. In part II we will examine with deeper focus the specific reasons why it is beneficial to outsource scientific experiments. Research organizations and even individual researchers outsource for a variety of reasons, but here are just a few.Read More
A recent white paper was released that traces the trajectory over the last ten years of 120 independent for-profit startups in the field of research workflows and scholarly communication. The author, Yvonne Campfens, presented the report at the Academic Publishing in Europe (APE) Conference held January 15-16, 2019 in Berlin.Read More
Antibodies have re-shaped biomedical researches since their discovery. From research tools to therapeutics and diagnostics, antibodies are indispensable in finding cures for a host of different diseases. In recent years, antibody-based therapeutics have dramatically changed the way we treat diseases, especially in oncology. The recent introduction of platforms has further advanced how antibodies are being used.Read More
Stem cells have attracted a great deal of deserved attention due to their lineage-independent characteristics. In other words, they have the potential to be differentiated into a countless number of cell types. Adult stem cells, otherwise known as inducible pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), are particularly favorable as research tools because they are derived from a patient’s somatic cells such as blood, skin or muscle.Read More
