Continuous Online Measurement of Viable Cell Density for Improved Process Insight

06/08/2018 - Online measurement with methods such as control of pH and dissolved oxygen are common for most biological processes. In fact, many parameters can be monitored but those directly related to cell physiology are time-consuming offline measurements that only provide a reactionary window into the past. Learn how to increase yield and decrease effort with innovative sensors. read...

Treatment of Tumours Associated with Chronic Inflammation

A new study conducted by researchers at IRB Barcelona demonstrates that myeloid cells, which belong to the leucocyte family and form part of the innate immune system, use p38 protein signalling to support inflammation-associated colon cancer. The study suggests that inhibition of the p38 pathway in myeloid cells may be a useful therapeutic approach, especially in tumours associated with chronic inflammation. read...

Publicly Available Data Helped Identify New Cancer Genes

Three researchers at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) in Barcelona, led by the Icrea Research Professor Ben Lehner, have developed a new statistical method to identify cancer predisposition genes from tumour sequencing data. Their computational method uses an old idea that cancer genes often require ‘two hits’ before they cause cancer. read...

Where Does the Oxygen on Comet 67P Come From?

10.07.18 - When the comet is close enough to the sun the ice on its surface ‘sublimes’ — transforms from solid to gas — forming a gas atmosphere called a coma. Analysis of the coma by instruments on Rosetta revealed that it contained not only water, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, as anticipated, but also molecular oxygen. But where did the oxygen come from? read...
