Optimizing Starting Material Quality for Cellular Therapeutics
Article

When a company strives to make an excellent product, they start with the highest quality materials. Cell therapy is unique in that the building blocks for the “product” are living human cells; since each donor is unique, variability is inevitable. Choosing optimal apheresis instrumentation and collection methods is one of the most important steps in ensuring high-quality starting material.

The New Normalization in Western Blotting
Article

A western blot is supposed to give you information on true experimental conditions or differences between samples. It is instrumental for the detection of proteins in research discovery and biopharma. In this article, we will be explaining the two main western blotting normalization methods; the older housekeeping protein method and the newer TPN method.

One-Way vs Two-Way ANOVA: Differences, Assumptions and Hypotheses
Article

A key statistical test in research fields including biology, economics and psychology, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is very useful for analyzing datasets. It allows comparisons to be made between three or more groups of data. Here, we summarize the key differences between these two tests, including the assumptions and hypotheses that must be made about each type of test.

Biosafety and the Agents of Doom
Article

To combat harmful pathogens it is vitally important that scientists have facilities available that enable them to work on them safely. These facilities should prevent the operator from becoming infected with the agent they are working with and prevent the organism from escaping the laboratory setting and potentially initiating new outbreaks of disease.

The Glycome and Cancer
Article

The surfaces of cancer cells frequently express different types of glycoproteins, and because healthy cells don’t express these molecules (or do so at a much lower level), there has been significant interest in them as potential anticancer targets. Recent advances suggest we are about to see a resurgence in cancer glycomics.

Mass Spectrometry in Biopharmaceutical Discovery
Article

Biotherapeutics now makes up 25% of new drugs approvals. Their efficacy and safety are highly dependent on their structures, which are complex, heterogeneous and subject to modification. Advances in mass spectrometry are allowing more information on higher order structure and new imaging techniques are even providing insights into how biological drugs behave in vivo.
