Thermo Fisher Scientific to Highlight new Cell-based Technologies at ASCB 2008
News Dec 12, 2008
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. will present a series of workshops highlighting new technologies for cell biology as part of the Exhibitor Showcase at the 48th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB).
Five workshops will showcase the expertise of Thermo Fisher Scientific around key mammalian cell-based research technologies as featured in the company’s Stem Cell Excellence™ program.
Technical experts will cover the latest tools and techniques available for cell-based research, including new thermo-responsive growth surfaces; tools for stem cell maintenance and differentiation; best practices for RNAi-based experimentation; kits and services for biomarker analysis, and techniques for cellular proteomics.
Genetic Discovery Helps Determine the Difference Between Aggressive & Benign Bone TumorsNews
The first genetic marker for the bone tumor, osteoblastoma, has been discovered. Whole-genome and transcriptome sequencing of human bone tumors revealed that a genetic change that affects the transcription factor, FOS, is a hallmark mutation of osteoblastoma. The results will help clinicians correctly distinguish benign osteoblastoma tumors from aggressive osteosarcoma tumors and direct the correct treatment.READ MORE
