Simplify Your 3D Cell Culture with a Novel Method for Tissue Modeling

Video

This video shows the technology behind the RAFT™ 3D Cell Culture System and how it creates high-density collagen scaffolds with cells embedded. The RAFT™ System has successfully been used in many research areas including toxicology, oncology, blood brain barrier models, corneal models and more. Coming along with easy-to-follow protocols, RAFT™ System allows you to set up robust 3D cultures in less than an hour. Learn more about RAFT™ System on www.lonza.com/raft-3d-culture.com.

Behind the Science, S2-Ep1: Classic rock & HPLC with Pat McDonald

Video

Every good rock band starts in the basement. So that's where we're heading ... to the basement of Waters to see the first chromatography systems! Pat McDonald, corporate fellow emeritus at Waters, tells us about Jim Waters and Waters Associates' inventions.

The first commercial "high pressure" chromatography system for polymer chemists, the GPC-100, from 1963. The ALC-100, developed in late 1970 for separating isomers in the synthesis of B12. The M6000 pump that came in 1972, followed by the U6K injector, the first commercial "small" particle columns (10 µm!). Bringing those pieces into an assembly led to the first modern "high performance" liquid chromatography instrument, now known as HPLC.
