Cell Culture Advances for Vaccine Development and Production
This article will explore how the optimization of cell culture growth medium, the development of superior biological models and the reduced reliance on animal-derived components continue to drive the exciting and rapidly developing art of cell-based vaccine development.
Existing and Emerging Lab 4.0 Technologies in 2021
In this article, we look to the technologies and innovations that will define the future of science.
Sustainable Science and The Road to Net Zero
My Green Lab's mission is to build a culture of sustainability in science. In this interview with CEO James Connelly, we find out how the non-profit is striving to achieve this goal.
COVID-19 Childhood Vaccines: Why Don’t They Last a Lifetime, Like the Measles Shot?
Sophie Prosolek explores why some vaccines last a lifetime, while others do not, for Technology Networks.
Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy, Principles and Applications
In this article, we explore atomic absorption spectroscopy, what is is, how it works, strengths and limitations and the areas in which the technique finds utility.
Promises and Challenges of Target-Based Drug Discovery
In this article, we will compare the two key drug discovery approaches, the challenges and opportunities of each and the future of target-based drug discovery.
Designing Vaccines With Reverse Vaccinology
Most vaccine development begins with looking at the pathogen. Scientists pinpoint key residues needed for the virus to enter the body and develop vaccines that train the body to recognize signatures of the foreign invader. Kevin O'Neil Saunders, associate professor of surgery and director of research at the Duke Human Vaccine Institute at Duke University develops vaccines after analyzing the body’s immune response to a pathogen.
Various biopharmaceutical analysis techniques are used to gain vital insights into the composition, quality, stability and safety of complex biotherapeutics throughout the development pipeline. In this article, we take a closer look at some of the strategies employed by scientists in the field.
The Omicron Variant Highlights the Need for Smarter, Future-Proof Vaccine Design
Investment in vaccine science and technology development can provide us with the tools to respond to pathogens with pandemic potential. In this opinion article, Ariana Gomes discusses the use of AI for creating universal vaccines.
Establishing Good Laboratory Pipetting Practices May Be More Important Than You Realize
This article will highlight how new pipetting systems are helping scientists achieve more reliable and reproducible datasets, and discuss how manufacturers are supporting customers to get the most from pipetting systems.
Vaccines: Just Add Water
Cold-chain distribution requirements complicate vaccine access, reducing vaccination rates for life-threatening, but preventable diseases. Now, researchers have developed a portable production platform for shelf-stable, antibacterial vaccines.
