What Are the Essential Features of a Biobanking LIMS?
This year, more than ever, has underscored the critical services that biobanks provide to biomedical researchers and other scientists. By implementing a regulatory-compliant, configurable Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), biobanks can follow best practice guidelines and overcome logistical, regulatory and safety challenges. This guide takes a look at how biobanks can choose the best LIMS to suit their operations.
A “Losing” Proposition: Tackling the Problem of Lost or Unrecovered Analytes in Chromatography
Liquid chromatography has proven to be an invaluable tool in analytical labs. However, despite being a “mature” technique, there are still some areas that prove problematic, leading to suboptimal results. One such area is the loss of analytes during the chromatographic process, but design innovations are aiming to overcome this problem.
Why Patient-Generated Health Data Could Power the Next Era of Clinical Research
Leveraging patient-generated health data (PGHD) in healthcare and clinical trials has become significantly easier with the advent of digitalization. We spoke to Alison Bourke, scientific director for real world insights at IQVIA and past president of the International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology, about how PGHD is collected, why it is useful and how we can best safeguard sensitive data.
A New Year in Proteomics
2020 was an important year for proteomics. The COVID-19 global pandemic cast a spotlight on the field's clinical utility in the fight against a public health crisis, from which there are many lessons to be drawn that will undoubtedly influence the landscape of the field for years to come. Technology Networks spoke with Rohan Thakur, executive vice president of Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry at Bruker Daltonics, to discuss the current state-of-play in proteomics.
