Milestones in microCT development: an interview with Alexander Sasov, CEO, Bruker MicroCT

MicroCT (micron-scale computed tomography) technology was completely unknown when it began to be commercially available more than 15 years ago. It was actually part of my PhD in 1983, so to move from that to shipping our first system in 1997 is quite impressive – the technique has progressed very fast. Now, we are supplying around 100 systems a year, to researchers working in life science, materials science, and in-vivo imaging of small laboratory animals. [More]

NICE recommends Olympus medical’s transurethral resection in saline (TURis) system as the new gold standard for transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)

NICE recommends Olympus medical’s transurethral resection in saline (TURis) system as the new gold standard for transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)

New guidance has been released today by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommending Olympus Medical’s transurethral resection in saline (TURis) system for use in surgery to reduce the size of enlarged prostate glands in men. NICE published the guidance in light of the potential it offers NHS hospitals to realise substantial cost savings of £285-£375 per patient whilst also improving patient outcomes. [More]
KU Leuven researchers devise simple, effective solution to untangle DNA

KU Leuven researchers devise simple, effective solution to untangle DNA

Researchers have long sought an efficient way to untangle DNA in order to study its structure - neatly unraveled and straightened out - under a microscope. Now, chemists and engineers at KU Leuven, in Belgium, have devised a strikingly simple and effective solution: they inject genetic material into a droplet of water and use a pipet tip to drag it over a glass plate covered with a sticky polymer.

Study finds correlation between tests for hemoglobin A1c using finger stick and oral blood

Study finds correlation between tests for hemoglobin A1c using finger stick and oral blood

It is estimated that 8.1 million of the 29.1 million Americans living with diabetes are undiagnosed and many who have diabetes have poor glycemic control. Given that each year many Americans visit a dental provider but not a primary care provider, dental visits may be an opportune site for diabetes screening and monitoring glucose control for many at-risk patients.
