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...

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...

Coral Core Proves Decreasing pH Values in South Pacific

The oceans are the most important factor for absorbing CO2. In the fight against climate change it is therefore essential to understand the mechanisms involved. Corals provide information about past pH values in the seas and thus natural and man-made variations in carbon dioxide levels. read...

Where Does the Oxygen on Comet 67P Come From?

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...

Scientists Set New World Record for Direct Solar Water-Splitting Efficiency

06.07.18 - One solution for handling fluctuations in the generation of solar energy is to store the energy in the form of hydrogen. For the economical application of this technology, it is however necessary to increase the efficiency of direct solar water-splitting. An international team of scientists has now succeeded in increasing this value to a new record level. read...
