A new microscopy technique takes cues from astronomy and ophthalmology to image samples deeper and sharper than before.
A 3-D-printed clip and glass bead have combined with a smartphone to produce an inexpensive microscope that can be used anytime, anywhere.
Lab water is a critical component of any laboratory, helping drive cutting-edge research while ensuring consistent, accurate results.
Faster, more accurate and more consistent instrumentation is key to capitalizing on and furthering the advancements of the nanotechnology industry.
Effectively harnessing data can accelerate the development of drugs and therapeutics, thereby improving patient care and outcome.
Paperless, or more accurately integrated, labs enjoy streamlined operations with better data, while minimizing costs, validation and maintenance.
The Turkana Basin, which stretches from northern Kenya to southern Ethiopia, is one of the most continuous fossil records of the Plio-Pleistocene, with some fossils as old as the Cretaceous period. This August and September, the treasure trove of prehistoric records was studied by paleontologist Louise Leakey, the granddaughter of the famous Louis and Mary Leakey.
Considered to be at the forefront of microscopy technology in agriculture, the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri supports education, industry and innovation under one roof.
Fast and accurate MS techniques are leading to a more informed, knowledgeable citizenry when it comes to what’s really in our food.
A couple of years ago, futurist Ray Kurzweil said robots would become sentient by 2029. He originally made this prediction in his 1999 novel, “The Age of Spiritual Machines,” with the addenda that these claims would be largely accepted. In his overall timeline, Kurzweil states that by 2099, there will no longer be any clear distinction between humans and computers and that most conscious entities won’t have a permanent residence (bodies).
Scanning electron microscopy and thermal stage technology are leading the path to modern techniques for food quality control and safety.
Russell Garwood, a research fellow at the Univ. of Manchester, England, worked with Jason Dunlop, a curator at the Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin, to create a video of the movements of an extinct arachnid. The arachnid was one of the first land predators and lived 410 million years ago. Garwood and Dunlop used exceptionally detailed fossils from the Natural History Museum in London to recreate its walking gait.
Open-source software and 3-D printing have redefined the approach to traditional laboratory equipment, as well as how we view global R&D.
Advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) have lowered the cost of sequencing, enabling a dramatic increase in the number of studies across the fields of basic research, applied research and molecular diagnostics.
Sample preparation in labs is an essential step. Since there are many choices for sample prep equipment, selecting and optimizing this equipment for your specific type of sample can be an overwhelming task. Given the myriad of sample prep equipment choices, it’s important to choose the right one for your sample to ensure accurate results.
