Stem cell culture surface enables direct attachment

Thermo Scientific Nunclon Vita Surface eliminates feeder cells or matrix coatings

Surface bacteria maintain skin's healthy balance

Research shows that the normal bacteria living on the skin surface trigger a pathway that prevents excessive inflammation after injury.

Surface texture and algae growth

Engineers are assessing systematic production methods that could make the costs of algae oil production more reasonable, helping move the U.S. from fossil fuel dependency to renewable energy replacements.

Surface dissolution imaging

The SDI300 is a unique UV area imaging detector which enables quantitative imaging of surface phenomena of a diverse range of substances including APIs, formulations, gels, liquids, stents and patches.

Surface dislocation nucleation

Researchers are studying metals at nanoscale sizes in the form of wires a thousand times thinner than a human hair.

Wipes do more than just skim the surface

At a time of increasing concern about the risks of cross-contamination, Labcaire has introduced a hard surface disinfectant wipe ideally suited to cleaning laboratory instruments and disinfecting work areas.

Do not be superficial ­ take a closer look at what is below the surface

The term asuperficial' has had bad press. If you only look at the surface, it implies, you miss all the detail. But it is not really true. You can find out a great deal from surfaces a either by looking at them, or by exploiting their properties. You just have to know the right way to look, and with which tools. Stuart Nathan reports.

Large microplate well surface area promotes efficient cell growth

Offering 24 high volume (3.1ml) wells in an industry standard 96-well plate footprint, the Krystal 24 from Porvair Science provides a large surface area per well, enabling unmatched cell growth.

Processes at the surface of catalysts

In chemical industry, heterogeneous catalysis is of crucial importance to the manufacture of basic or fine chemicals, in catalytic converters of exhaust gas, or for the chemical storage of solar energy. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Ruhr-Universität Bochum have developed a new infrared spectroscopy method in order to study processes at surfaces of oxides used as catalysts.
