Chromatography in Greek means to ‘write with colors.’ It is a versatile separation technique developed in 1903 by Mikhail Tswett, a Russian botanist. He separated colorful plant pigments using a column of calcium carbonate. Ever since its discovery, chromatography has evolved as a powerful tool in the lab for the separation and identification of different compounds in a mixture.

Advances in POC diabetes testing: an interview with Gavin Jones

Advances in POC diabetes testing: an interview with Gavin Jones

Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is well recognized as a reliable measure for glycemic control. The role of HbA1c testing in the management of patients with diabetes has been well established for several decades. HbA1c levels reflect the average circulating glucose concentration over the lifespan of... [More]
Researchers find link between estrogen levels in lung tissue and SMLA in postmenopausal women

Researchers find link between estrogen levels in lung tissue and SMLA in postmenopausal women

Thanks to advances in medical imaging, the detection rate for synchronous multiple lung adenocarcinoma (SMLA) has been on the rise. Cases of SMLA in Japanese women have been on the rise despite having a national smoking rate of less than 10% in recent years. [More]

New techniques for the extraction & preparation of cannabis oil: an interview with Alison Wake

Cannabis first began to be decriminalized and legalized for medicinal use in the US in the late 1990s and 2000. However, the production of cannabis and cannabis extraction as an industry remained limited until recently when recreational use began to... [More]
Researchers identify proteins in the blood that could improve detection of pancreatic cancer

Researchers identify proteins in the blood that could improve detection of pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal forms of cancer because early stage symptoms are relatively light, often resulting in it being discovered only after spreading to other organs. In order to improve the prognosis of pancreatic cancer, the development of methods for early detection of pancreatic cancer with a blood test is important. [More]
