Notch effect ‘converts’ stem cells into cells of the nervous system

Discovered in 1919, Notch is a protein that can pass a signal from a neighbouring cell and change activity of genes. It causes a mutation in fruit flies that gives them notches on their wings. Such mutants also have many more neural cells...

Digital imaging system for thin-layer chromatography

Dr Matthias Loppacher looks at a solution especially dedicated to thin-layer chromatography image analysis.

Creating knowledge-based economy ensures increased life science funding

Given the rapid advances in biological sciences, the European Commission (EC) under its framework 6 programme (FP6) has set a strategic thematic priority for life sciences along with biotechnology and health.

Application guide helps to find the right chiral separation approach

When faced with a new chiral molecule the chromatographer has to find the right column to quickly and reliably separate enantiomers.

Systems integration capabilities boost uptake of bioinformatics

Integration and interoperability among different software vendors, database providers, computer hardware, and in-house compilations have become the key focus of research pertaining to both bioinformatics and clinical informatics.

Fighting cardiovascular disease worldwide

One in three people die from cardiovascular disease (CVD), seventeen million every year.

Adopting outsourcing to combat rising costs

Lengthy drug discovery times and the soaring costs of drug development – currently estimated at approximately US$800 million – are putting pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms under immense pressure.

High-purity skids used in trials for biopharmaceutical production

LC/MS detection: powerful tool for organic compound analysis

Diab Elmashni outlines the advantages of liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry detection.

Breakthrough in TLC chromatogram development

Dr Matthias Loppacher looks at a thin-layer chromatography solution to control environmental factors to a level where reproducible and standardised results can be achieved.

Analysts increasingly turn to gel permeation chromatography

Gel permeation chromatography (GPC) measures the molecular weight distribution of polymers.

integrated sample hplc preparation device

HPLC sample preparation can be a tedious process. Whatman has developed a product called Mini-UniPrep (MUP) that greatly enhances the efficiency of that sample preparation process. MUP combines a mixing/reaction container, filtration device...

Laboratories and documentation

Analytic conceptual formulation traceability and the complete documentation of the production processes play a more important role of extended product liability, more than ever.

Peristaltic pumps bring controlled flow to scientific instruments

The Cecil range of UV/visible spectrophotometers includes models designed for student teaching, routine analysis, quality control applications and cutting-edge research.

Mass spectrometry efficiency rises

A new software package that raises the efficiency of mass spectrometry is now available from Autoscribe.

Integrated instrument for gel permeation chromatography

Gel permeation chromatography is a well-developed technique for determining the molecular weight distribution of polymers. Dr Greg Saunders reports.

Complex peptide mixture analysis through ion trap mass spectrometer

Traditionally, rapid identification of low abundance proteins in complex mixtures has utilised three-dimensional (3D) quadrupole ion trap spectrometry systems.

Demand for high speed analysis drives clinical lab developments
