Are Serological Tests Unreliable? Or the Protein Reagents?Convenient Tools for Vaccine Efficacy Assays Help Make Faster Progress In The 'Red Queen's Race'

From the wild type to the Delta variants, Humanity is facing a 'Red Queen's Race' between SARS-CoV-2 evolution and their own human defenses. Vaccination could be a powerful weapon against the virus but how strong the current vaccine protection is against the circulating and emerging variants of the virus is becoming a major concern.

ACROBiosystems is excited to introduce a series of efficiency tools to evaluate vaccine efficacy against SARS-CoV-2 Variants of Concern (VOCs), including Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta.

  • Specifically detect Nabs against VOCs based on competitive ELISA
  • High sensitivity and specificity with highly reproducible results
  • High throughput and convenient to evaluate vaccine efficacy

Shape of extracellular vesicles in body fluids could be a biomarker for identifying cancer typesA recent study by scientists from Japanese universities has shown that the shape of cell-derived nanoparticles, known as "extracellular vesicles" (EVs), in body fluids could be a biomarker for identifying types of cancer.
 
 
 Experts offer guidance on diagnosis and treatment of myocarditis in children
 
Experts offer guidance on diagnosis and treatment of myocarditis in childrenMyocarditis in children is a rare yet challenging condition to treat. Diagnosis and treatment includes multiple options, and many cases of myocarditis resolve on their own according to a new scientific statement from the American Heart Association, "Diagnosis and Management of Myocarditis in Children," published today in Circulation, the Association's flagship journal.
 
 
 Research can contribute to earlier diagnosis of diabetic neuropathy
 
Research can contribute to earlier diagnosis of diabetic neuropathyResearch conducted at Cruzeiro do Sul University in São Paulo, Brazil, can contribute to earlier diagnosis of diabetic neuropathy, a disorder characterized by damage to peripheral nerves, with symptoms such as pain and paresthesia (pricking, burning and numbness), mainly in the legs and feet.
 
 
 Biomarker discovery can open door to screening newborn babies for pyridoxine-dependent epilepsy
 
Biomarker discovery can open door to screening newborn babies for pyridoxine-dependent epilepsyThe door has finally opened on screening newborn babies for pyridoxine-dependent epilepsy (PDE), a severe inherited metabolic disorder. This screening promises to enable better and earlier treatment of the disease.
