Malvern Unveils New Website
News Jun 20, 2005
Malvern Instruments' new website integrates information about the company's entire range of products, technologies and services. It brings together laboratory-based systems for particle characterization and rheological applications, and process systems for on-line applications in a single site at www.malvern.co.uk.
The site is designed to be easy-to-navigate and offers a variety of routes through which visitors can access extensive information - by industry sector, application or process, measured parameter or instrument, for example. According to Malvern, a major attraction for many visitors is its comprehensive education center, which provides a wealth of information designed to help develop a better understanding of the analytical technologies available and the ways in which analysis can be used to benefit operations.
There is direct access to downloadable product brochures, application notes, recorded seminars and other audiovisual presentations, and a registration point for live web-based seminars and other Malvern events.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
