Technology Networks recently interviewed Anthony V. Lemmo, to learn how rapid antigen tests work, how they compare to PCR tests and how they can be used to help slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2.
Tackling the Spread of SARS-CoV-2 Variants
Public health groups and leaders around the world are adopting different approaches for viral tracking and monitoring to halt the spread of novel SARS-CoV-2 variants.
Microplastic Analysis and the Future Detection Landscape
The full impact that microplastics have on health and the environment is still not well understood, however, mounting evidence regarding their negative effects has made microplastics a topic of interest for scientists, governments and regulatory bodies. We spoke to Kathleen A. Young about microplastics detection techniques and technologies, the importance of standards and how regulations may come to fruition in the years to come.
Miniature Columns, Massive Insights: The Transformative Potential of Automation for Purification
A novel combination of miniaturized purification technology, automation and software presents an opportunity to drastically shorten drug or vaccine development timelines by rethinking how purification processes are refined.
A Step in the Right Direction for Dioxin Detection
To detect, quantify and ultimately instigate remedial action in relation to dioxin contamination, scientists require suitable analytical tools and techniques. The USEPA recently approved a new dioxin testing method which could assist these efforts. We spoke to Frank L. Dorman, PhD, FRSC, about the hazards posed by dioxins, challenges in their identification and the future detection landscape.
