Verifying Cell Lines Is A Really Big Deal

A fluorescent microscope image of NIH 3T3 fibroblast cells, a commonly used mouse cell line. Microtubules within the cell appear green while the nuclei show as red. NIST and partners are developing tools, datasets and a standardized authentication method to ensure the identity of mouse cell lines used in research.

Nanotexturing Creates Bacteria-Killing Spikes on Stainless Steel Surfaces

News

By using an electrochemical etching process on a common stainless steel alloy, researchers have created a nanotextured surface that kills bacteria while not harming mammalian cells. If additional research supports early test results, the process might be used to attack microbial contamination on implantable medical devices and on food processing equipment made with the metal.

Changes Identified in Body Cells During Type2 Diabetes Onset

News

Researchers have found fresh evidence to explain the processes that occur in the body’s cells leading to the onset of type2 diabetes. Utilising metabolomics, results showed that amino acids play a contributory role in the onset of type2 diabetes in some younger and older patients, as the metabolism of specific amino acids is adversely affected.
