New Tools for Combating Antibiotic Resistance

Article

Antibiotic resistance is a serious health problem, causing illnesses that were once easily treatable with antibiotics to morph into dangerous infections, leading to serious disability or even death. To help fight this growing threat, diagnostics companies are developing new tools and techniques that are playing a crucial role in quickly identifying infectious organisms and preventing the inappropriate use of antibiotics.

Cisplatin Efficacy: The Importance of Measuring Uptake in Cancer Cells
Article

Although cisplatin is clinically proven to combat numerous human cancers – bladder, head and neck, lung, ovarian, testicular – resistance to treatment remains a key challenge, and cisplatin patients can often relapse. Having the ability to determine the cellular uptake of cisplatin is key to developing novel strategies to increase tumor cell sensitivity to cisplatin.

Cryo-EM and CX-MS: The Power Couple of Proteomics
Article

An ambitious new workflow has married two cutting-edge proteomic analysis techniques to improve imaging of large protein assemblies. The combination of electron cryo-microscopy (cryo-EM) and cross-linking coupled mass spectrometry (CX-MS) allows deeper interrogation of protein structures to a level of detail that the techniques are incapable of obtaining on their own.
