 Using Different Absorbance-Based Assays for Protein Quantification
 
Using Different Absorbance-Based Assays for Protein QuantificationIt is necessary to perform protein quantification before continuing with protein samples for isolation, electrophoretic or chromatographic analysis, or immunohistochemical techniques. Colorimetric detection and quantification of proteins can be carried out by two different techniques: protein-copper chelation and protein-dye binding.
 
 
 Economical Fluorescence for Stereo Microscopy: Speeds Workflow and Brightens Education
 
Economical Fluorescence for Stereo Microscopy: Speeds Workflow and Brightens EducationFluorescence is a critical tool for investigating biological phenomena, but until recently, has been limited primarily to higher-end compound microscopes for observing cellular phenomena. Over the past 10 years, fluorescence has extended to stereo microscopes, driven largely by interest in genetics, genomics, and neuroscience that required imaging whole organisms for key animal models, including fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) and worms (C.

Arguably from time immemorial to the nineteenth century, the dominant pattern of sleep in Western societies was biphasic, whereby most preindustrial households retired between 9 and 10pm, slept for 3 to 3 ½ hours during their “first sleep,”
 
 
 What is Audiology?
 
What is Audiology?The word audiology is made up of two roots: Audio and Logy. ‘Audio’ refers to ‘hear’ and ‘logy’ to ‘the study of’. In essence, audiology is the study of hearing - as the inner ear is also required for balance, this is also included in the study. In medical terms it is the branch of science dedicated to the study of hearing, balance and their associated disorders.
