Lyo-Stable Lyophilization Services
Our Lyo-Stable stabilization service locks in performance, enabling room temperature shipping and storage. Our patented lyophilization technology stabilizes individual proteins, reagents and complete multiplex assays, by providing a molecular environment that protects against conformational changes in protein structure.
Reaching Crystal Structures of Extremely Thin Films With FT-IR
Researchers have established an inexpensive method to identify the orientation of molecules and chemical bonds in crystalline organic-inorganic hybrid thin films deposited on substrates using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and polarized infrared light.
Detailed Atlas of the Developing Mouse Brain Is a New First
Researchers have created a first detailed atlas of a critical region of the developing mouse brain, applying multiple advanced genomic technologies to the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for processing sensation from the body.
Protein That Is the “Cornerstone of Taste Signaling” Could Also Be a Drug Target
Scientists have taken images of the specialized taste bud protein, TRPM5, revealing two areas that could serve as targets for novel medications.
Antidepressants Safe for Mother and Baby During Pregnancy
Women with depression and other mood disorders are generally advised to continue taking antidepressant medications during pregnancy. Now, researchers have found that maternal psychiatric conditions - but not the use of serotonin-selective reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) - increased the risk for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and developmental delay (DD) in offspring.
Stay Up-to-Date With COVID-19 Drug Development
Researchers are working tirelessly to design new drugs and repurpose existing drugs against the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
What Have We Learned From the Neanderthals Lately?
The result of our ancestors reproducing with Neanderthals is that we present-day humans possess archaic genetic mutations from the extinct species. Through genetic analyses, scientists can infer how mutations from the Neanderthals impact the phenotypes of present-day humans. What have we learned from recent research?
History, Mystery and DNA Analysis
In April 1845, The Franklin Expedition departed from the shores of England with a crew of 129 men aboard two ships. None of the voyagers returned. Now, DNA samples from descendants of the men is being used to help unravel the mystery of what happened to them.
Time To Put the Virus in Quarantine?
The laboratory of Professor Hendrik Dietz in the Department of Physics explores the possibility of building molecular devices at the nanometer scale using different materials, including DNA. The group's latest research, published in Nature Materials, demonstrates their success in building icosahedral shells that can "trap" viral pathogens using DNA.

Characterizing Structural Variants
Structural variants (SVs) are genomic variants encompassing insertions, deletions, duplications, inversions and translocations. SV analysis is of high importance for increasing our understanding of diseases including cancer, neurological disorders and rare genetic diseases. Using long nanopore sequencing reads, SVs can now be characterized with unprecedented resolution.

Quantitation in LC-MS
With growing concerns over a multitude of food risks, accurate and sensitive analytical tools are needed to ensure food safety. Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) has become an indispensable method for food safety testing and quality control, capable of detecting and quantifying even trace amounts of numerous contaminants and harmful species in food.
