Artel Launches First Interactive Web Portal Dedicated to Liquid Handling
News Jan 29, 2009
Artel announces the launch of Liquid Handling Talk, an information-rich website dedicated to small-volume liquid handling. Through user-populated discussion forums and blogs by industry experts, the site offers a platform for peer-to-peer collaboration to foster best practices in laboratory liquid handling.
Liquid Handling Talk features discussion board topics such as automated liquid handling, handheld pipetting, quality control, data management, and regulatory news. This non-commercial resource is designed to involve laboratory stakeholders in an accessible online discussion, and is sponsored by Artel as a free service for the life science community.
Liquid Handling Talk will help laboratory professionals improve productivity, quality, and data integrity with regard to liquid handling instrumentation and liquid handling processes in the laboratory. The site includes information pertaining to all types and brands of liquid handling instrumentation, including manual handheld pipettes and automated liquid handlers.
Visitors to Liquid Handling Talk can post commentary and questions and search for content on quality control, compliance, troubleshooting, and other topics of interest. The site also includes a collection of product announcements and technology introductions from leading manufacturers so visitors can stay up to date on the latest trends and innovations.
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
