Antibody screening tools have exponentially increased the rate that candidates can be screened, multiplexing will increase processing to thousands per hour.¬
Having a single platform to sequence all monoclonal antibody proteins provides researchers with key information for research, development and drug discovery
In many cases mammalian cells are the only option to produce recombinant proteins with correct post-translational modifications, e.g. glycosylation, which are required for proper function of the therapeutic protein.
Reducing anemia in developing regions is a key strategic health goal with a prevalence of more than 60% in some developing countries.
Image cytometry or tissue cytometry, not only measures the size, diameter and shape of a cell, but quantifies the molecular marker expression.
In this interview, John Champagne, Ph.D. Senior Applications Scientist and Northeast Regional Manager for Wyatt Technology, talks to News-Medical about
Artificial intelligence is a large field with a multitude of techniques based of different ideas. Deep learning is just one of them, but it is the one with the most success in recognizing image content in recent years.
Centrifuging adds time and can potentially damage the cell sample, Michael Grauf discusses how cell clarification and sterile filtration can be achieved in one step.
In this interview, Keith Carron, CEO CEO/General Manager of Metrohm Raman, talks shortly after the release of Metrohm’s new Mira DS handheld Raman Analyzer, which provides a new level of safety and assurance when identifying unknown substances up close or from a safe distance of up to 1.5 meters!
Analytica is a very important show for us and our German team. We have a lot of local customers from Germany, so it is really good event for us to be able to provide face to face interaction with our customers and show them our full range of products all at once.

AFM is quite a versatile technique and we see a great potential of this technology for life science applications. It is still fairly new in Bio community, however very well accepted not only as imaging tools but as a versatile instrument for nanomechanical measurements.
Samuel Lesko has more than 20 years experiences in running AFM over variety of applications.
After obtaining a PhD at Burgundy university on colloidal force measurement in cement, he started his career at Veeco Instruments as French Applications Scientists before to continue on supporting Bio Applications AFM European wide. He is since 2007 Applications manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Recently, his position expanded to Latin America.
There's a continued drive towards making in vitro assays ever more translational towards in vivo models and ultimately the clinic. This ties in with the resurgence of phenotypic screening and is a response to the perceived poor translation of the traditional simple cell-based assays, often developed to study just single protein targets.
There are about 77,000 people known to have cystic fibrosis. That's from the various cystic fibrosis registries available globally. The World Health Organization suggests that this number may be low, because there's no reporting on cystic fibrosis from the developing world. The accepted number, at the moment, is about 80,000. That's the one that is used for most of the work that's being done on cystic fibrosis.
There are two problems that pathologists face today. The first is, that a pathologist’s diagnosis using tissue sections is becoming more complex. There are many more biomarkers, and clinicians now ask for a more precise diagnosis. Secondly, the number of pathologists worldwide is declining every day, as the profession is often overlooked in favor of other specializations.
