Combating Challenging Separations With Advanced 2D Liquid Chromatography Technologies
Liquid chromatography (LC) systems are the backbone of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical laboratories. However, with increasingly complex samples and efficiency pressures, scientists are seeking more confidence in their results. Can innovative two-dimensional LC (2D-LC) systems provide the answer?
Non-Invasive Biomarker Can Track and Verify Senolytic Drug Efficacy
In a new study published in Cell Metabolism, scientists share their discovery of a novel, non-invasive biomarker test that can be utilized to measure and track the performance of senolytic drugs.
Stimulation Sensation: The Non-Invasive Technologies Shaking Up Neuroscience
The growing field of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) is a new frontier of neuroscience. NIBS could provide therapies for psychiatric conditions without drugs or invasive surgery. In this article, we explore how brain stimulation devices are being developed everywhere from academic labs to internet message boards.
A Novel, Colloidal Form of Activated Carbon Demonstrates Effective, In-Place Removal of PFAS From Groundwater
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are estimated to contaminate more than 200 million Americans' drinking water and have been associated with adverse health effects. Scientists, however, have devised a solution that can remove PFAS before it even leaves the ground.
