From humble roots to noble humanitarian cause, PCR has left an indelible impact on the world of science.
Researchers have begun to dissect SARS-CoV-2 effects on the blood brain barrier, making use of innovative cell culture models, techniques, and equipment
The successful application of NGS technologies to a problem of this scale and scope speaks to the power of innovation. Here are a few new NGS solutions for COVID-19 research applications.
The advent of new microplate technologies and advanced testing solutions will continue to fortify the fight against COVID-19, from the research lab to the clinic.
By automating tasks and increasing precision, new liquid handling technologies serve to streamline workflows and free up the hands of researchers to focus on the important stuff – the science.
The world of microscopy has a rich and vivid history -- two recent breakthroughs shine even greater light on an already brilliant field of view.
Understanding the strengths and limitations of real-time RT-PCR is essential for examining the current virus outbreak and for those that may emerge in the future.
Detecting invasion by the SARS-COV-2 virus (the causative agent of COVID-19) is the crucial first step in identifying pathogen exposure. Measuring the human immune response is the vital next stage to quantify true infection rates and to decipher the development of immunity.
With several key driving factors in mind, here are four important areas of current laboratory liquid handling innovation - low-volume dispensing, flexibility, miniaturization, and integration - and a snapshot of new technologies currently on the market.
Multi-channel electrophysiological recordings are the sum total measurements of electrical activity across a cell membrane. Single-channel recordings are the discrete measurements of individual channel activity. We summarize the details of the techniques and their use in neuroscience applications.
Multiplexed detection, automated workflows, and advanced focusing technologies – enabling breakthrough applications in the fields of immunology, oncology, cell therapy, and beyond.
