For mammalian cells to remain in a healthy state, they require constant renewal of their components. The process of disposing of old components is known as 'autophagy', which stems from the Greek words auto "self" and phagein "eat". This process involves the formation of a double-membrane structure called an autophagosome, which engulfs old or dysfunctional organelles and then fuses with lysosomes, where they are broken down to recycle the constituent molecules....
Vect-Horus, a French company specialized in the development of vector molecules for the central nervous system, announces today it has signed a scientific collaboration agreement with Advanced Accelerator Applications (AAA), a fast growing international player in Molecular Nuclear Medicine (MNM). The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed. This agreement is part of Vect-Horus’ strategy to....
Researchers at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genova and IMEM-CNR, Parma in Italy have used the FLS920 photoluminescence spectrometer from Edinburgh Instruments to measure the photoluminescence (PL) spectral properties, quantum efficiencies and lifetimes of novel CdTe semiconductor quantum disks, synthesized from disk-shaped Cu2Te nanocrystals. Fluorescent nanocrystals are currently being applied in lasers or displays, and offer exciting prospects for future photonics such as quantum emitters. The nanocrystal shape plays an important role in these applications...
The Ripette Stepper Dispenser, now available from Alpha Laboratories is the perfect tool for economical yet high performance repeat liquid dispensing. Its lightweight but robust construction makes routine pipetting over long series easier and reduces the risk of repetitive strain injury. Working on the principle of positive displacement, the Ripette uses disposable tips fitted with internal pistons, which make direct contact with the liquid during aspiration and dispensing. This ensures easy, safe, accurate and precise performance even with difficult sample types...
This one-stop solution encompasses everything from designing and building laboratories to training crime scene investigators and judges, and revolves around Tecan and Life Technologies’ fully validated, walkaway setup for robust genetic identification. Dr Carlos Azambuja, President of Genia Geo, explained: “Genia Geo was set up to provide government entities, such as Ministries of the Interior or of Justice, with everything necessary to implement a national system for DNA-based forensic identification...
BMG Labtech, Inc. - the Microplate Reader Company - and InvivoSciences, Inc. - a leader in stem cell tissue engineering providing a novel solution in first-in-class drug discovery - announced today a strategic collaboration to market the time-dependent fluorescent assessment of engineered 3D heart tissues using advanced microplate reader technologies. Employing an automated system, 3D heart tissues are fabricated with cardiomyocytes derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells....
Markel UK, the specialist insurer, has launched a new liability product designed to meet the specific needs of the rapidly growing UK biomedical and life sciences sector. The sector, which is well established in the UK, is expected to see strong growth, with £5bn being invested annually in pharmaceutical research and development alone. Although London and the South East remain important clusters for a wide range of life science companies, the industry is increasingly broadly based throughout the country....
With research and education more and more reliant on high-speed networks to share and store data across campuses and even continents - poor network performance can drastically impinge output and drain resources. Yet issues such as slow connectivity and latency are often experienced and even considered an unavoidable annoyance. Most network issues happen in the ‘last mile’. Nearly all degradations in network performance can be narrowed down to the end of chain, occurring within the university or laboratory and often on the laptop or computer itself...
