Biomarkers hold immense potential for the future of medicine, enabling more efficient and better-targeted treatments. Most coverage of novel biomarkers to date has been focused on how a patient’s genetic signature can indicate their susceptibility to a disease, but there is a world of other biological and environmental information that can impact how patients respond to treatments. In this blog, SCIEX’s Aaron Hudson explains how non-genetic biomarkers have a key role to play in reaching the goal of truly precise medicine.
Cell-Free Technology is taking a unique approach to protein technology with their BioBits initiative, which they say combines the ease of use of a digital design tool with the detailed scientific validation provided by a CRO. We catch up with Cell-Free CEO Tom Meany to discuss the new technology.Read More
A clinical trial has been launched to identify urine-based biomarkers which indicate lung flare-ups in cystic fibrosis. Researchers believe point-of-care monitoring will help people get treatment faster, improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.Read More
New tools are enabling researchers to explore individual cells with unprecedented clarity, allowing RNA and protein expression levels to be simultaneously analyzed. In this blog, Brian Lilhanand, Global Platform Leader, Single Cell Multiomics, at BD, discusses how BD’s new AbSeq Assay can provide this targeted profiling and benefit immunology researchers.
Following the recent FDA approval of a procalcitonin assay, we spoke with a representative from Fujirebio Diagnostics, Inc. to learn how measuring this important biomarker will improve the healthcare landscape.Read More
Determining Prognostic Significance of Biomarkers for Risk Stratification of Early Stage Lung CancerBlog
During this year’s AACR Annual Meeting we spoke to Dr. Delphine Lissa and Dr. Ana Robles from the National Cancer Institute to learn more about the team’s most recent study on the use of two specific biomarkers for risk stratification of stage I lung cancer patients.Read More
Understanding the proteome is a fundamental challenge of biology. Here, Bruker Daltonics' Gary Kruppa and Scarlet Koch outline a new method, Parallel Accumulation Serial Fragmentation (PASEF) that offers faster, more sensitive and more robust proteome analysis, giving scientists the potential to discover low-level, biologically significant proteins and validate them in research.Read More
Flow cytometry allows the analysis of physical and biochemical features of cells. Advances in machine that can characterize and sort cells will allow researchers to look deeper than ever before into the proteome and transcriptome. We talk with Bob Balderas, VP Market Development at BD on how the cutting-edge machines like the FACSymphony S6 cell sorter incorporate new technology and advance multiomics research.Read More
