Life Science White Papers are in-depth articles aimed to educate and inform site visitors interested in life science research. Some of these papers are derived from sources where we have existing commercial relationships. Such articles are clearly labelled as sponsored content and are only accepted when the content is deemed to add value to the core editorial ethos of News Medical.
Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) is a special gel electrophoresis type for the separation of DNA macromolecules.
Today, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) devices are present in almost every technology of daily life. Smartphones are a prominent example of consumer devices that incorporate multiple MEMS devices, such as accelerometers and gyroscopes for motion sensing and MEMS-based filters for wireless communication.
Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) is a powerful analytical technique. Virus particles have often proven hard to analyze, but DLS provides an great opportunity for virus analysis.
This article discusses how to keep biopharmaceutical manufacturing and it's continuous processes free
from pathogens and thus enhance virus safety.
In this article, Pall Corporation discusses how to achieve enhanced upstream flexibility in biopharmaceutical manufacturing using stirred tank bioreactors.
CAR-T therapies allow for cancer patients to potentially beat the condition. However, CAR-T therapy can result in cytokine release syndrome (CRS), which can be very toxic and damaging. This article discusses the management of CRS.
The Indian variant of SARS-CoV-2 has played a huge part in the second wave of COVID-19 infections in India. Research is being conducted into the spiker protein mutations of the B.1.617 variant.
Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is a formidable method that is amenable to the measurement of biological samples, especially proteins and biopolymers. One of the quickest growing groups of pharmaceutically active biologics are antibodies.
Tableting processes are varied and complex. Developing tablets with high performance relies on a number of factors. Drug load is proving to be an important factor in overall processability.
Influenza is a respiratory infection that occurs in mammals and in avians. This article discusses the virus and also how Sino Biological can provide research tools against it.
Solid phase extraction allows for the separation of compounds in a mixture. It is a highly useful
analytical technique but can be quite complicated and so Porvair is providing their top tips for the
This article explains how to monitor trace VOCs in human breath emissions.
This article explains how to image large areas of tissue with laser ablation systems.
SARS-CoV-2's N (Nucleocapsid) protein, which is a structural protein crucial for viral packaging, is
highly immunogenic, it has become a protein of interest for those looking to test antibodies and design drugs against the virus.
The B.1.617 variant of SARS-CoV-2 is associated with increased infectivity and higher chances of immune escape. Data suggests that this variant is responsible for the surge in COVID-19 cases in the
state of Maharashtra among others.
With the use of magnetism, beads coupled with biotinylated proteins can be utilized in efficient
immunocapture, virus capture and in biopanning. They can also be used in phagocytosis assays to evaluate the performance of phagocytic cells.
This application note gives a brief introduction into Raman spectroscopy and related applications.
Continuous manufacturing is present across all industry as it helps with efficiency. It has use in the biopharmaceutical industry as well. Pall's filtration solutions allow for easier implementation of continuous bioprocessing.
Recent events have demonstrated the importance and necessity of having efficacious vaccine development programs, and Pall's filtration solutions allow for increased throughput for pharmaceutical development.
An integrated solution seeks to achieve a seamless connection between steps in a process. Where
freeze-thaw is involved, an integrated end-to-end solution starts at the point when drug substance is filled into the preferred containers, is transported before finally thawing upon delivery for formulation.
