Microglia Transmit Pain to the Brain During Stress


Chronic pain is a multifaceted disorder that causes profound disability worldwide. It has long been known that psychological stress contributes to adverse chronic pain outcomes in patients, but it is unclear how this is initiated or amplified by stress. Now, researchers have published results showing that activation of microglia in the mouse spinal cord is responsible for increased pain sensitivity in response to stress.


ELN, LIMS, CDS, LES: What’s the Difference?


In this article, we look at the key differences between four common types of informatics systems. CSols Inc. is an independent informatics consultancy, and their Delivery Manager, Geoff Turnbull, will help us answer some important questions on the role these systems play, where they overlap with each other, and why we don’t just have one overarching system to rule them all.


Mass Spectrometry’s Important Role in Identifying Explosives in the Environment


Explosives, especially when not contained or disposed of correctly, pose a significant hazard to humans, wildlife and the ecosystem. Having the tools to be able to identify their presence and state are therefore key to combating the issue. We spoke to Stanislaw Popiel about the game-changing role that mass spectrometry is playing in the process and some of the challenges that still lie ahead.
