It is worth noting that in the U.S. and in many countries, digital pathology is still at a very early stage, compared to many other fields that were digitized 15 or 20 years ago such as radiology. There have been some barriers to the adoption of digital pathology such as regulatory challenges that are only just now being overcome. Recently, the FDA approved the use of whole slide imaging software for primary diagnostics.
We've been in Formula 1 now for 51 years. What defines our ability to compete is the fact that we have understood the need to innovate. In addition, we take an incremental rather than disruptive approach to innovation.
Our medical connectors are used on a variety of medical devices. Here in the U.S. medical devices are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and classified into three risk categories, classes I, II and III.
Prostate cancer is the second most diagnosed cancer globally with over a million men diagnosed worldwide. We are fortunate in that better diagnostic techniques and better awareness means that men are often being diagnosed earlier, which gives them a better chance of being cured.
In this interview, Jay Flatley, Executive Chairman of Illumina, gives an introduction to Illumina and the next generation genomics tools they provide.
In this interview Penny Owen, Interim Executive Chair, Life Sciences Hub Wales, describes recent advances in Life Sciences in Wales, and if we are likely to see changes in this due to Brexit.
The silicon photomultiplier, or SiPM, is a solid state detector representing the next generation of photon counting detector that can be used in medical imaging.
An interview with Dr. Chase Spurlock, CEO, discussing IQuity's research into IncRNAs and how they are linked to autoimmue diseases.
Jamf’s mission is very simple: we want to help organizations succeed with Apple devices. It's a very broad mission, Apple devices are getting used increasingly more in businesses, for example healthcare providers and in a variety of other industries, such as education. Our goal is to help them succeed with Apple devices to either empower their employees, empower their teachers or students, and help IT be more effective and efficient.
Augmedix is a Google Glass-powered remote scribe service that frees doctors from 3 hours of mandated charting and documentation each day.
An interview with Jean Fallacara, CEO, discussing how Z-SC1 help to ensure safe sample storage at ultra-low temperatures, conducted by James Ives, MPsych
The traditional device manufacturers used by doctors such as Welch Allyn, Keeler and Heine aren’t digital. It means that they have an external light source (with a battery) and are used to look into the ears but the doctors can’t capture the images.
These prosthetics are a big change from traditional models. The knees are designed with a programmable computer that is built in to the joint. This battery powered technology continuously controls both the swing and the stance phase of the prosthetic through real time data that the computer receives from its built-in sensors.
In this interview, Dr Harmut Schafer introduces the work being done at the Phenome Center in Birmingham, on metabolic phenotyping using NMR.
Thankfully, meningitis is a rare condition. Although it can occur in anyone, it's more prevalent in babies and young children, with young people and students being the next most at risk group. In the early stages, it can be very difficult to tell meningitis apart from milder diseases, as it often resembles other common viral illnesses. Symptoms of the disease can develop very quickly.
Bruker has been involved in the Phenome Center network since its beginning. Several years ago, the whole visionary concept of a global phenome network was actually born with Professor Jeremy Nicholson and Bruker BioSpin has been part of it since the early stages.
Hearing aids capture sound, make the sound louder and then send the sound down the ear canal, through the middle ear to the inner ear where the hearing nerves are located. They are most beneficial for people with mild to moderate hearing loss...
Chemically synthesized single guide RNA is the best way to do CRISPR genome editing. It is more pure than biological methods of creating guide RNAs, like in vitro transcription or plasmids. As a result, sgRNA leads to more consistency and higher quality.
An interview with Ian Holland, discussing the differences in microscope cameras and how to determine which one is most suitable for specific pathology applications.
