Oxford Gene Technology (OGT), provider of innovative genetics research and biomarker solutions to advance molecular medicine, has produced a free whitepaper titled ‘The importance of enrichment assay choice and optimisation for confident variant detection.’ The paper investigates the main strategies employed to optimise target enrichment for next generation sequencing (NGS) assays, assisting researchers to make informed decisions when designing studies...
Thornton & Ross Ltd is the largest independent pharmaceutical manufacturer in the UK. Its QC laboratory has an important function in both raw material evaluation and in production and this can significantly impact overall manufacturing performance. Thornton and Ross identified the need for a LIMS capable of controlling, managing, organising, documenting, analysing and reporting information, since increasing volumes of laboratory test data were overwhelming existing practices. Matrix Gemini was installed to manage data for a wide range of analytical techniques for both the raw materials and finished products teams...
Check List to help with the assessment of each LIMS vendor and to fully understand how each vendor meets the specific user requirements. Equally suitable for first time buyers and those looking for a replacement LIMS, this free document is available on request. The check list ranges from commercial to system support issues. Consideration is given to programming and coding responsibilities, system configuration/customisation and user access and security. There is a thorough review of functionality, including: sample/work registration, sample receipt, sample preparation, work scheduling and result entry. There are sections concerning static data tables, reporting, and options...
“In my lifetime the world population has doubled and it is forecast to double again by 2050,” explains editor, Dr Roma Gwynn. “Alongside many other issues, this increase puts tremendous pressure on farmable land, requiring a doubling in output per unit area. If we are to conserve biological resources and ensure food security in a sustainable way, we need to use the best crop protection technology and methods available. Integrated Pest Management – including the use of biological control agents such as macro-organisms, micro-organisms, botanicals and semiochemicals – will play an important part, and it is encouraging that demand for and availability of these technologies is increasing rapidly...
The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) has published a new version of C40-A2—Measurement Procedures for the Determination of Lead Concentrations in Blood and Urine; Approved Guideline—Second Edition. C40-A2 is intended for members of the clinical laboratory testing community involved in the collection and measurement of lead in blood and urine. C40-A2 provides direction for specimen collection, measurement by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry, anodic stripping voltammetry, and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. It includes guidelines for quality assurance and quality control, as well as information on proficiency testing programs and laboratory certification. This edition of the document addresses the clinical significance of lead concentrations < 10 μg/dL (0.48 μmol/L)...
Seward Ltd., manufacturers of the world leading range of Stomacher® paddle blenders and Stomacher® accessories used in sample preparation for microbiological analyses, has introduced a new application focused Resource Centre within its website. The Seward online Resource Centre contains a growing and unique database of reference papers to help users identify how Stomacher® laboratory paddle blenders may be used for different applications and protocols. All scientific papers referenced within the Resource Centre have been read and assessed by Seward’s technical experts...
This technology can visualize cellular-level structural, functional, and biomechanical data and provide new insights into complex processes in living tissue, such as skin. This technology not only offers a new tool for basic science and pre-clinical investigations, but also offers the potential for human clinical investigations into the dynamics of skin regeneration and repair, the incorporation of engineered skin constructs, the effectiveness of new therapies for treating skin conditions such as non-healing diabetic ulcers, and for skin cosmesis applications...
Link Technologies Ltd, a specialist oligonucleotide reagent manufacturer, has dedicated a section of its new, freely available 2013/14 Product Guide to ‘Modification Strategies in Oligonucleotide Synthesis’. Increasingly, modified oligos are playing an important role across a broad range of life science and clinical-based research groups and, for example, show significant promise as agents to optimise drug delivery. In the new Product Guide, Link Technologies has compiled a comprehensive resource for - scientists working with modified oligonucleotides, including educational references, detailed product information, established protocols and application notes, for assured oligo synthesis and use. This go-to guide for oligonucleotide chemistry can be downloaded for free...
METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce the launch of the latest version of its interactive, web-based Electrode ValueBox. This downloadable electrode identification and troubleshooting toolkit, which features a revised electronic Sensor ProductGuide, will help METTLER TOLEDO customers choose the right electrode in less time, enabling easy optimization of delicate values such as pH. Particularly for pH measurements, subtle electrode composition shifts capture electron transfer in various solution types...
