Researchers from MSU's Sleep and Learning Lab assessed how effective caffeine was in counteracting the negative effects of sleep deprivation on cognition. As it turns out, caffeine can only get you so far.
By using an algorithm to match an individual's pattern of brain responses with those of others, researchers from the University of Copenhagen and the University of Helsinki were able to predict a person's attraction to a not-yet-seen face.
A new paper seeks to help scientists structure their lab-group meetings so that they are more inclusive, more productive and, ultimately, lead to better science. The scientists have outlined their results in ten simple rules.
Treatments based on mRNA are being explored for their potential to help treat chronic diseases in various ways. A new detection method developed by researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, and Astra Zeneca could lead to faster and better development of the small droplets known as lipid nanoparticles, which are the main method used to package mRNA for delivery to the cells.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, cloth face masks became a way to help protect yourself and others from the virus. And for some people, they became a fashion statement, with many fabric choices available. But just how effective are they, especially in containing a sneeze?
Within the framework of a collaboration agreement, Philip Morris International (PMI) and Tissuse plan to utilize PMI’s Inhales technology in combination with Tissuse’s proprietary Multi-Organ-Chip (MOC) platform to enable inhalation exposure of functional human tissues in homeostasis at minute scale in vitro.
Independent analytical testing, contract research, development and manufacturing company, Solvias, has acquired Massachusetts-based Chemic Laboratories. With this acquisition, the company gains a strong foothold in the United States and highly complementary laboratory testing capabilities.
A consortium wants to assess multiple new or existing process analytical technologies (PAT), including Horiba’s A-TEEM fluorescence technology. The aim is to accelerate technology development and potentially lower cost in cell and gene therapy manufacturing.
Do scientists and researcher still need to be physically present in the lab of the future? Will the workbenches still be rectangular and will cobots do all the annoying routine tasks? The panel discussion “Enabling Technologies for the Laboratory of the Future” at Achema Pulse highlighted the promising advantages of cutting edge technology in the laboratory ecosystem. LAB worldwide summarizes this insightful discussion.
Digitalisation is on the rise — in the laboratory as well. Efficiently automated processes are also in demand here. In addition to suitable software and hardware, what helps immensely is a laboratory workstation that can be flexibly and modularly adapted to the respective requirements.
A new liquid chromatography system sharpens chromatographic peaks for metal-sensitive compounds by eliminating secondary interactions, maximizing reproducibility and efficiency of separations without compromising performance.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS has developed innovative “μPCR” laboratory modules to significantly accelerate the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for rapid Covid-19 tests. Rapid temperature changes are required for the samples, which are made possible by a combination of ceramic 3D printing and applied electronics.
Researchers examined so-called marine snow particles of different sizes, which are composed of algal debris and other organic material. These particles are important for the nutrient balance in the oceans. The scientists were able to answer a long-standing puzzle: How do the nutrients that are concentrated inside the particles reach anammox bacteria that live freely suspended in the water column?
EU authorities recently reported that the production and use of hazardous chemicals in everyday products have been reduced by 97 percent in the EU. However, the official registry for chemical volumes doesn’t show any reduction at all. Experts agree that the data in the registry is off.
A project led by Prof. Dr. Irina Engelhardt, who teaches hydrogeology at the TU Berlin, aims to enhance our understanding of bank filtration processes and to improve predictive capabilities of models describing transport of microorganisms in bank filtration. Model-based tools are developed to enable waterworks operators to assess more accurately the purification potential of their bank filtration plants with regard to microorganisms.
The import of palm oil, soybeans, and beef contribute significantly to deforestation in other parts of the world. Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, and the University of Louvain, Belgium, evaluated over a thousand policy proposals for how the EU could reduce this impact.
Together with Tufts University, USA, and the Technical University (TU) Darmstadt, Germany, Merck plans to develop bioreactors for large-scale production of cell-based meat and fish. The project is scheduled to run for three years.
A new mathematical model for the interaction of bacteria in the gut could help design new probiotics and specially tailored diets to prevent diseases. The research, from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, was recently published in the journal PNAS.
Researchers from the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague found new possibilities for use of garlic compounds in human medicine.
Moderate amounts of sugar are already enough to boost fat production in the liver. This is shown in a study by researchers from Switzerland. According to the study, household sugar, which is widely used, is particularly predestined to promote the development of diabetes or fatty liver.
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.
Alzheimer's is often associated with so-called plaques in the brain. However, these protein deposits on neurons are probably not solely responsible for the disease. A new study by researchers at the Ruhr University Bochum, for example, provides evidence that certain protein residues can also penetrate into the interior of the cells and lead to their death.
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.
