Scientists decrypt interaction network of hepatitis C virus proteins in living human cells

Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have for the first time decrypted the interaction network of hepatitis C virus proteins in living human cells. Their findings will contribute to a better understanding of the mechanisms behind inflammatory liver disease caused by hepatitis C viruses and open up new avenues for therapy development. [More]
Six-way jet-in-air sorter from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences delivers simultaneous high-speed cell sorting and sub-micron particle detection

Six-way jet-in-air sorter from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences delivers simultaneous high-speed cell sorting and sub-micron particle detection

MoFlo Astrios EQ, a six-way jet-in-air sorter from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, delivers patent pending enhanced dual forward scatter (eFSC) technology for simultaneous sorting and detection of particles from 200 nm to 30 µm in diameter. The instrument sets a new standard for flow cytometry core facilities, delivering high-speed cell sorting and micro-particle detection in a single package. Featuring detailed and precise forward scatter resolution, beadless drop sample handling and increased biosafety, Astrios EQ meets a range of analysis needs. [More]
Scientists describes new advantageous way to detect different immune cells in the blood

Scientists describes new advantageous way to detect different immune cells in the blood

When a person becomes sick or is exposed to an unwelcome substance, the body mobilizes specific proportions of different immune cells in the blood. Methods of discovering and detecting those profiles are therefore useful both clinically and in research. In a new paper in the journal Genome Biology, a team of scientists describes a new and uniquely advantageous way to detect them. [More]
New study shows increase in certain macrophages may lead to therapeutic targets for Crohn's disease

New study shows increase in certain macrophages may lead to therapeutic targets for Crohn's disease

​For those coping with Crohn's disease, a new research report published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology offers hope for the development of new and more effective drugs. In the report, scientists show for the first time, precisely what type of immune cells are involved in driving the inflammation process in the disease. [More]
