Mass Spectrometry in Neuroscience
Infographic Sep 26, 2019 | by Ruairi J Mackenzie, Science Writer for Technology Networks
For proteomics researchers, work is almost impossible without mass spectrometry (MS), an analysis technique that enables the study of the chemical makeup of samples in minute detail. Neuroscience, however, has largely got by without dipping its toe into the pool of analytical chemistry.
With the advent of faster, smarter MS tools, those days may be numbered, as MS-based techniques become an invaluable resource for studying the brain.

Cryopreservation, the use of very low temperatures and cryoprotectants to preserve structurally intact cells and tissues, is essential to many areas of research and medicine. Find out why cryopreservation is used, how cryoprotectants reduce cell shrinkage, and learn about the therapies dependent on successful cryopreservation.READ MORE
