The purely digital “reboot” format for the conference this year made for an outstanding experience, rich with interactive, on-demand, and downloadable content -- in addition to some electrifying new product buzz.
The world of microscopy has a rich and vivid history -- two very 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.
The Virus Surface to a Novel COVID-19 Vaccine Candidate: The Journey of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein
Intensive analysis of the spike protein led to the development of the first vaccine candidate approved for clinical trials. Perhaps overshadowed, is the unprecedented collaboration between academic scientists, government institutions, and private industry central to this remarkable work.
High-resolution cryo-electron microscopy imaging of the CoV spike protein complex has revealed both expected and novel structural elements – signifying capabilities previously not observed in this family of coronaviruses..
As a vital resource, this annual event focuses on the latest in lab instrumentation and provides a forum for the science that drives technology innovation. Here is a snapshot of this year’s show.
The LUMOS II is as an easy-to-use, stand-alone FT-IR microscope with peak performance across transmission, reflection, or attenuated total reflectance (ATR) modes.
