Part one of this series looked at the shrinking NIH budget and approaches that may help scientists sustain their research in the current lean times. This article examines the universe of other research funding, and what it can and can't offer.
Unraveling the mechanisms behind autoimmune diseases keeps pushing new compounds into development and providing new roles for some approved drugs.
Researchers are creating sophisticated pathogen-detection systems for bioterror defense. But will this lab technology work in the field?
Researchers confess to the power of whole genome association studies, but say that this SNP-driven approach has limitations.
Many companies keep making more advanced products to identify and quantify proteins.
After more than five years of wrangling, Congress finally seems poised to enact the most comprehensive change to US patent system in more than 50 years. But not everyone is pleased with the "Patent Reform Act of 2007."
Today, hygiene, technology, and science make travel faster and more convenient. But not only do people travel faster, diseases—including some previously believed to be eradicated—can quickly make their way around the globe.
Agilent Technologies introduced a new version of its Multiple Affinity Removal System (MARS), the Human-14, which removes 95 percent to 99 percent of the 14 most abundant proteins from human blood serum and plasma.
Applied Biosystems released the first TaqMan assays for microRNA (miRNA) analysis that are configured in an array format.
TTP LabTech’s mosquito automates hanging drop plate set-up by aliquoting protein solution from a single source column to all 96 adhesive-free 'windows' on a hanging drop plate seal.
Beckman Coulter introduces the Microfuge 16 benchtop centrifuge that spins at 16,163 x g (14,800 RPM) for fast pelleting or isolation of DNA, RNA, proteins, and viruses.
Sigma-Aldrich’s ProteoPrep 20 LC Column removes more biological noise, allowing proteomic researchers to delve deeper into the plasma proteome with less fractions to assess in the analysis phase.
Gatan Inc. launched th XuM for its range of imaging products for the scanning electron microscope. The XuM utilizes a SEM as a host instrument to enable x-ray imaging of the internal structure of objects with resolutions down to less than 100nm.
Nikon Instruments’ BioStation CT is a self-contained cell culture observation device and monitoring system to conduct live cell imaging locally or by remote operation over a network.
