In the ongoing pandemic, researchers have discovered that apart from the receptor Ace2, neuropilin-1 can also be considered as a factor that can facilitate Sars-Cov-2 entry into the cells’ interior.
Roche has teamed up with Atea Pharmaceuticals to jointly develop AT-527, an orally administered direct-acting antiviral currently in Phase 2 clinical trials. If approved, AT-527 will be the first novel oral antiviral to treat Covid-19 patients.
An engineering team led by Dr Paddy Chan Kwok Leung at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) has made an important breakthrough in developing the staggered structure monolayer Organic Field Effect Transistors. Their development sets a major cornerstone to reduce the size of OFETs.
The fossilised remains of ancient deep-sea corals may act as time machines providing new insights into the effect the ocean has on rising CO2 levels, according to new research carried out by the Universities of Bristol, St Andrews and Nanjing and published in Science Advances.
Global trends in the production of pharmaceuticals and chemicals continued to pick up in the summer months, reports the German Chemical Association (VCI - Verband der Chemischen Industrie) in its monthly ‘World Chemistry Report’. The VCI-report shows the latest developments in chemical and pharmaceutical production in 16 countries, 6 regions and around the world.
Researchers at the Institute of Integrative Systems Biology have learned that oral bacteria can persist surprisingly long enough in the chewing gum even after weeks of being spat on the ground. This study can prove useful for forensic medicine or control of contagious diseases.
While it is known that stem cells have the ability to develop into all tissues in a precisely regulated process, the way environmental cues affect stem cell behavior has remained poorly understood. In a new study, researchers from the University of Tsukuba discovered that certain neurons regulate the behavior of germline stem cells (GSCs) in response to environmental cues, such as mating.
The determination of moisture in cured cannabis is an indicator of microbial contamination, a key variable used to calculate other constituent results on a dry basis and required for the pressing process of extracting CBD oil from cannabis. Thermogravimetric moisture determination can provide valuable services here.
Tohoku University researchers have improved a method for probing semiconducting crystals with light to detect defects and impurities. Their discovery could help improve the fabrication of materials for electric cars and solar cells.
Custom-fabricated lenses make it easy to attach high-tech microscopes directly to cell incubators.
Labvolution, the trade fair focusing on innovative lab equipment and laboratory workflow optimisation, is expected to take place from May 4 – 6, 2021 in Hannover, Germany. The show will be undertaking adequate safety and hygiene measures in the background of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Agricultural scientists and engineers at the University of Adelaide have identified a potential new tool for screening cereal crops for frost damage.
The world’s largest lizard, the Komodo dragon, could be driven to extinction by climate change unless significant measures to intervene are taken soon.
Large numbers of three-spined stickleback have gradually taken over larger parts of the Baltic Sea’s coastal ecosystem, shows a new scientific study. Stickleback is a small prey fish common in aquatic food webs across temperate Europe. The stickleback contributes to local ecosystem ‘regime shifts’, where young-of-the-year pike and perch decline in individual bays, and these shifts gradually spread like a wave from the outer archipelago into the mainland coast.
Vegetables and food items can contain harmful bacteria and when these items are placed on kitchen counters it can spread these microbes. Scientists at Nofima have conducted a research project to determine if there is a connection between visible dirt in the kitchen and bacteria levels.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has recently established a new safety threshold for perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in the body. The move is in line with a scientific opinion which focuses on the risks of PFAS in food.
Grain-based materials fermented with Propionibacterium freudenreichii have enough vitamin B12 to be nutritionally significant. With the help of Lactobacillus brevis in the fermentation process, vegans can also be guaranteed a sufficient and safe B12 intake directly from grain-based food, without pills, says a study conducted by scientists at the University of Helsinki.
You need to document samples in transmitted light or fluorescence in your routine lab? To achieve best image quality, this can get time consuming. Learn in this webinar, how to speed up your image acquisition with Smart Microscopy from ZEISS.
Learn how to improve the quality, reliability and reproducibility of your imaging data. Adding advanced automation features to your microscope setup can help you to get better results with less efforts.
The University of Geneva’s (Unige) unique technique is capable of identifying an enhanced combination of anticancer drugs that are more effective than chemotherapy and at the same time also eliminate the possibility of any side effects.
Vitrocell has introduced the Cloud Alpha 96, which is designed for virus research, screening of inhaled drugs and toxicity testing of inhaled substances such as chemicals or nanoparticles
A density determination can be carried out with a balance. A new poster by Mettler Toledo gives tips on how to set up the density measurement.
Today’s busy laboratories are under pressure to produce, and spilled materials are often an unwelcome show-stopper when weighing. Not anymore. With an new patented lattice weighing pan, laboratory workers keep working while maintaining the accuracy your process requires to enhance productivity and throughput.
Weighing is an important act in every laboratory — but it can become tedious and even uncomfortable. The design of the new, smaller XPR Analytical balance gives a deeper access to the weighing chamber.
Laboratory technicians often don't know which test weights and weight class they should choose to check the performance of their balances and scales. The free Mettler Toledo GWP Recommendation service specifies the correct test weights and weight class based on the degree of accuracy you need to satisfy your specific process tolerances.
