RNAi Screening Trends
Understand current trends and learn which application areas are expected to gain in popularity over the next few years.
Diagnostic Test Developed for Enterovirus D68
researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed a diagnostic test to quickly detect enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), a respiratory virus that caused unusually severe illness in children last year.
Simple Technology Makes CRISPR Gene Editing Cheaper
University of California, Berkeley, researchers have discovered a much cheaper and easier way to target a hot new gene editing tool, CRISPR-Cas9, to cut or label DNA.
HPV Genomes Show Greater Diversity Than Expected in Cancer Patients
The findings could have implications for eventually understanding why some cervical lesions become malignant.
Rapidly Detecting Drug-Resistant HepC
A nested PCR-based assay has been shown to rapidly and accurately detect drug-resistant strains of the hepatitis C virus.
Researchers Seek Water Test for Invasive Species Detection
Detecting invasive lake and river species using just a water sample would be a dream come true for wildlife managers and regulators in the state and University of Maine researchers may soon make this an inexpensive reality.
New Cell Structure Finding Might Lead to Novel Cancer Therapies
University of Warwick scientists in the U.K. say they have discovered a cell structure which could help researchers understand why some cancers develop.
Ebola Assays Compared in Head-to-Head Analysis
A newly published study has attempted to rigorously evaluate a few of the assays recently granted Emergency Use Authorization by the US Food and Drug Administration to test for Ebola Zaire virus.
Profiling DNA Viruses in Arctic Lakes
The Arctic's freshwater lakes contain viral communities composed of DNA viruses from lineages that are largely distinct from those described elsewhere, a new study suggests.
Polar Distribution of MicroRNAs Discovered within Eukaryotic Cells
A plausible new mechanism contributing to asymmetric cell division.

Lab Instrument Rental Trends 2012
Bookmark and Share

Many labs are experiencing serious budgetary constraints in purchasing new lab instruments today. But owning laboratory instrumentation and the outright purchase model still remains the norm in life science research in academia, pharma and biotech today. This may all change, as organisations increasingly realize that owning expensive assets that depreciate rapidly and are costly to service may not make best business sense. Discussion and debate around alternative acquisition strategies involving instrument rental/lease has started to occur as a few vendors begin to offer/consider instrument rental. The aim of this global benchmarking study was to track to emergence of this life science trend.

The objective was to understand the appetite for change and willingness to engage in investigating lab instrument rental/lease as a viable alternative to the outright purchase model. The results of this survey are intended to be used by instrument vendors/suppliers considering if they should make more instruments available for rental/lease.
