Today on LabChat, we're traveling five years down the road to see what labs will look like in 2019. To get an accurate description of what the lab of the future is expected to entail, Laboratory Equipment recently surveyed its readership and analyzed the results. As in past years, more advanced instrumentation is the strongest expected improvement in the research lab, as chosen by nearly half of the survey respondents.
Today on LabChat, we are traveling five years down the road to what labs will look like in 2019. To get an accurate description of what the lab of the future is expected to entail, Laboratory Equipment recently surveyed its readership and analyzed the results. When looking at specific types of analytical instrumentation and laboratory equipment, the most significant changes expected are likely to be in automation systems.
This month, on March 20 at 2:06 a.m. Eastern time, some lucky viewers in northeast America and Canada can watch Leo's brightest star Regulus disappear for up to 14 seconds as asteroid 163 Erigone passes in front of it.
In a new video, researchers examine how pepper's delectable chemistry made it a key player in the global spice trade.
One of the most colorful and captivating events on the coral reef’s calendar has been captured on video at Heron Island Research Station. Each year, researchers flock there to witness and study the annual coral spawning event.
Gesture control for electronics could soon become an alternative to touchscreens and sensing technologies that consume a lot of power and only work when users can see their smartphones and tablets.
A single injection of stem cells into degenerative discs reduced low back pain for at least 12 months, according to results of a 100-patient, phase II, international clinical trial.
Research that successfully grew “mini-livers” from adult mouse stem cells has won the UK’s international prize for the scientific and technological advance with the most potential to replace, reduce or refine the use of animals in science.
Researchers have developed a hard X-ray fluorescence nanoprobe called the Bionanoprobe, which makes three-dimensional images that map out the locations of trace elements, like iron or potassium, in frozen biological samples.
Forget ketchup and mustard— Sriracha might be the world's new favorite condiment. Beloved by millions for its unique spicy, garlicky, slightly sweet flavor, the chemistry of "rooster sauce" is the subject of the American Chemical Society's latest Reactions video.
Researchers have developed the world's first liquid metal-enabled pump, a revolutionary new microscale device with no mechanical parts.
Augie, an endangered green sea turtle, has a severe flipper injury. In order to swim properly again the flipper needed to be splinted so that the bones could knit. So, scientists printed one specially.
Researchers have developed nanoparticles that can deliver drugs targeting damaged arteries, a non-invasive method to fight heart disease.
In what may be the warmest Winter Olympics on record, Sochi looks more like SoCal by the day. With few real snowflakes around to blanket Sochi’s slopes, science keeps the Winter Olympics alive with artificial snow.
Plop living, swimming bacteria into a novel water-based, nontoxic liquid crystal and a new physics takes over. The dynamic interaction of the bacteria with the liquid crystal creates a novel form of soft matter: living liquid crystal. The new type of active material holds promise for improving the early detection of diseases.
