In this interview, Daniel Klaue explains why it is important to measure cell mechanics, discusses a novel method of doing so, and highlights how this technology could benefit clinical applications.Read More
Companion diagnostics (CDx), i.e. in vitro medical devices, and next-generation sequencing (NGS), are both essential to the practice of precision medicine. As new regulations are introduced, pharma companies and manufacturers alike need to ensure their CDx processes are compliant or we could see a deceleration in the flow of new precision therapies in the near future.Read More
Agilent are working to increase the utility of NGS in the diagnostics field and in personalized medicine. We recently spoke with Ronda Allen, Head of R&D at Agilent, to learn more about two of Agilent's newest products in this space, the Cancer All-in-one (AIO) panels, and the Magnis NGS Library Prep System.Read More
Technology Networks recently spoke with Rosengarten and Raymond Mercier, VP and GM, Molecular Biology, Thermo Fisher Scientific, to learn more about how the co-marketing agreement between Thermo Fisher Scientific and Genialis will help ease the burden of the "informatics bottleneck" for research scientists.Read More
A recent collaborative study between Examen and the Lister Fertility Clinic in London used Examen’s COMET assay to measure sperm DNA damage in men with unexplained infertility. We spoke with Professor Sheena Lewis, CEO of Examen, to learn more about the study, the links between sperm DNA damage and infertility, and the value of adding this parameter to fertility testing.Read More
Neurodegenerative diseases are one of the most pressing challenges of our time and teasing out the cellular mechanisms underpinning these diseases is a key goal for researchers in the field. We talked to Stéphane Martinez of CISBIO to discuss how researchers can access information on neurodegenerative mechanisms and how we are beginning to recognize the contribution of the immune system to neurodegeneration.Read More
Aided by advances in high-throughput technologies, the metabolomics research field has gained significant traction. We spoke with Baljit Ubhi, Ph.D. from SCIEX, about the recent developments in metabolomics, addressing the increasing focus on the microbiome, how it impacts metabolic disease, and the future directions of research, including "precision nutrition".Read More
A recent collaboration between Onconova Therapeutics and Mission will utilize the Mission Bio TapestriⓇ Platform to conduct targeted single-cell DNA analysis for the study of Onconova's novel cancer therapy, Rigosertib. We spoke with Darrin Crisitello, CCO of Mission Bio, to learn more.
